Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along 2010


**For anyone just joining us, welcome!  Come and play!  Grab a jelly roll and play catch up.  Let me clarify a little upfront:
1) There isn’t an email list to remind you when the blocks are available.  You can sign up to be notified when my blog is updated.  I have posted instructions HERE
2)  All you need to do now is make your block and post it onto our Flickr group HERE.  If you need help, try THIS post.
3)  You can always check this post for the new blocks, but they are first listed as a post on my blog, then I add that link at the bottom of this post.   

I am excited to introduce something that I have had in the works for a little while now:
A Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along!

From March 1 to August 2, every other Monday, instructions for a new 12″ block will be posted. All of the blocks will be made from jelly roll strips and yardage.

Each block will be designed by a different person. Every two weeks there will be a guest blogger on my blog introducing herself and her block. At the end, you will have made a fun quilt 58″ x 72.”

Of course, all along the way there will be prizes for those who complete the blocks. Here is a picture of the quilt:

I will fill it in as we go with the blocks that we make.

Here’s the nitty gritty:

Fabric Requirements —
1 jelly roll
2 yards background and sashing fabric
1 1/2 yards outer border fabric
2/3 yard binding fabric
3 3/4 yards backing fabric

Grab a jelly roll and some background fabric and let’s get started!

The first drawing will be on March 1 when I post the first block. To enter this drawing, comment on this post that you want to join us and what fabric line you are thinking about making it in.

P.S. Scrappy is absolutely fine too. This quilt would make a great stash buster project.

P.P.S. I am making mine out of Attitude Girls by Mary Engelbreit for Moda.

The second drawing will be on March 15 when the first guest blogger posts the second block. Anyone who has made a block and posted it on a flickr site: ( will be entered in the drawing.

There will be another drawing each time block instructions are posted. Anyone who posts a picture of a new block since the last drawing will be entered in the next drawing. The block that you post a picture of doesn’t have to be just the previous block. It can be for any of the previous blocks that you haven’t posted yet.

    Oh, I want to do this. Right now, because I am showing so much self control, I think I will make a scrappy blue or red quilt. But, when the time comes, I may go out and purchase something because I am sometimes weak that way. We’ll see, but either way, count me in.

  2. Crafty Maine Mom
    February 1, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    This sound like so much fun. I got a jellyroll for Christmas. I’m at work so I don’t know the specific line. I can’t wait for March now. Yeah

    I would like to do this with all of you. I don’t own a commercial jelly roll, but will use up some noodles I’ve swapped in the past…have a whole drawer of them. Now to think of a color scheme….

  4. Lauren
    February 1, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    I’m in! I don’t know what fabric I’ll be using yet though. I’m nervous!

  5. Deb
    February 2, 2010 at 1:59 am

    I’d like to play! I have about 10 – 12 jelly rolls…no kidding! I’ll have to check them all out and see which one I’d like to use for this quilt along! Thanks for organizing it. (I’m working on a couple of other quilt-alongs, too, so starting in March is good–gives me a little bit of time to get started on these others!)

    I will be doing a scrapish one.

    Do we get a preview of the guest designers???

  7. Debbie
    February 3, 2010 at 12:25 am

    Can’t wait to join in the which jelly roll should I use.

  8. Debbie
    February 3, 2010 at 12:53 am

    I found my Odyesses by MOMO jelly roll and some linen for the background. Yay!

  9. Erica
    February 3, 2010 at 3:03 am

    I am in but which jelly roll to use…..

  10. Lori
    February 3, 2010 at 5:15 am

    I’m in. Now I just need to go through my stash and decide on which fabric to use. This should be fun.

  11. Rhonda P.
    February 3, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    You can count me in! Don’t know which jelly roll yet. Have too many to choose from but then you can never have enough jelly!

  12. Terry
    February 3, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    OH WOW< I'm in!!! I have a jelly roll and I had no idea what to do with it...Now I do 😉 I will be using Recipe For friendship by Mary Engelbreit for Moda. How exciting!!!

  13. SheilaC
    February 4, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Count me in!! I have a Swanky jelly roll that I could use…. plus plenty of this and that!!

    February 4, 2010 at 2:18 am

    I’m gonna try this one. Fairly new to quilting so I am nervous about it. But anyways I am using the silly safari jelly roll for this.

  15. L. Gray
    February 4, 2010 at 2:59 am

    Ooo, how exciting! I will use either Aviary, Hartfield or Portugal…not sure yet. Do you have any hints on contrast? That may help along my decision!

  16. Jill
    February 4, 2010 at 4:08 am

    Oh! I can’t wait for 3/1 to get here. I haven’t been able to decide what to do with my Mary Englebreit jelly roll. Too much fun!

  17. Trish
    February 4, 2010 at 10:52 am

    Count me in. I’m not sure which Jelly roll I will use. I just purchase a few of my first ones and I’m not sure which one I will finally unwrap

  18. Kathy
    February 4, 2010 at 11:04 am

    I’d like to do this as I have tons of fabric to dispose of! LOL
    I hope I can keep up, I teach 6th grade and I also suffer from Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis, so sometimes my energy level is pretty low. But I really want to try. Count me in. Mine will be scrappy, probably of African fabrics.

  19. DIDI
    February 4, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    Hello! I’d like to join this quilt-along too if I may.
    I´ll probably have a jelly roll by then although I may rather use tons of the scraps that are overflowing my scrap bucket.

  20. Kathleen
    February 4, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    This sounds like fun. I’m going to use a Birdie Jelly Roll. Come on March!

  21. Emily
    February 4, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    I really, really don’t need to join another quilt along, but I would love to do a sampler. I’ll try to keep up!

  22. Molly
    February 4, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    I can hardly resist a quilt-along! 🙂 I’m not sure which line I’ll use yet…we’ll see.
    Congrats on the Moda Bake Shop quilt! I love it! 🙂

    I would love to do that too. I am not sure if I will use scraps or get a jelly roll, I have a couple that I would like to get.I have wanted to do more strip quilts anyway. I will take your button so I can get back here. Loved your Moda Bake Shop quilt.

    This sounds like fun!
    I’m undecided about what to use for fabric…I have a swanky roll sitting around. I also have LOTS of scraps. After I see the first block, I’ll decide.

  31. Barb
    February 4, 2010 at 7:40 pm

  35. Lauren
    February 4, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Just got my jelly roll today! I am using Make Life by Sweetwater for Moda. I don’t have any background fabric yet. Will we need it in the first block and would you recommend using fabric from the same line or just anything that coordinates?

  36. carole ann
    February 4, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Please count me in, I’m going to use A Breath of Avignon/American Jane. This sounds like fun.

  37. Linda
    February 4, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Neat idea. I’v just finished cutting my scraps in jelly roll, charm, layer cake and nickel-size pieces to do just this sort of thing. Can’t wait to get started. Thanks for sharing,

  38. Marie-Thérèse
    February 4, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    There is a Prairy Paisley jelly rol in my cupboard. I could not decide for myself what to make of it, so I will leave the designing to you and will join in. Looking forward to this fun :o)

  39. Sharmayne
    February 4, 2010 at 11:14 pm

    This does sound like a lot of fun… & I just finished saying I need to seriously use up some of my stash I have, so I will make a scrappy quilt – not sure what colours yet, may have to get some other fabrics as well.

  40. elsemarie
    February 5, 2010 at 12:25 am

  45. Teresa

    I am in…sounds like fun. I have a jelly roll that I have been wondering what to use it for.

  46. Moose on the Porch Quilts
    February 6, 2010 at 1:06 am

    Boy, I don’t know if I will be able to wait until Mar 1. This is going to be fun!

    To answer the question about the background/sashing fabric —

    If you are looking for contrast, sometimes you want to choose a fabric that isn’t in the fabric line that you have chosen. For example, the white that I chose is Kona Snow. That obviously isn’t in the Attitude Girls fabric line. Some fabric lines will have one or two fabrics that provide good contrast (sometimes light sometimes dark) like the bright pink in Verna. You can look in the fabric line for the background fabric, but don’t feel confined to the fabric line.

  47. WENDY
    February 6, 2010 at 1:06 am

    I am In. I Love your patterns. Thinking of using browns and blues

  48. banjo795
    February 6, 2010 at 3:08 am

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I think that I will go scrappy, because I discovered that I have waaaay too many FQs!

  49. She sews and scraps
    February 6, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Oh wow! so glad I found your blog and I am in on doing this quilt along!

  50. She sews and scraps
    February 6, 2010 at 8:54 pm

  54. Deidra
    February 7, 2010 at 3:24 pm

  55. Tina
    February 7, 2010 at 3:30 pm

  56. Terry
    February 8, 2010 at 2:43 am

    Add me to the list! I have four jelly rolls sitting here and it would be great to use one of them up on this! I have no idea which one I’ll use…guess I’d better figure that out before March 1! Thanks! :0)

    February 8, 2010 at 4:26 am

    Sounds like a lot of fun and spread out enough that I could keep up! Looking forward to see who the guest blocks will be. I think I will be using Verna by Kate Spain or Rouenneries by French General…love both!

    Yes, this is exactly what I needed. I have three jelly rolls and never made anything with them. This sounds like so much fun! I think I will use my Snippets jelly roll, which I have had for a year now.
    Thank you so much for organizing this! Wow, really something to look forward to. Can’t wait (((O:

  64. Wendy
    February 8, 2010 at 12:19 pm

  65. Peaceful Piecer
    February 8, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    I want to join in ,hope I can figure out how to put your button on my blog. I have half a moda jelly roll left and will add scraps.

  66. Mike & Jen
    February 8, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I am so excited to try this quilt along. This will be my first one! I’ll have to go looking for a fun jelly roll that I can use for this very thing! Nothing like a good excuse to buy more fabric!

  67. Debi
    February 8, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    I’m always up for a great quilt along! Count me in! I have several jelly rolls but also plenty of strips cut in the stash too, I’ll have to ponder that thought 🙂 Love the Moda Bake Shop quilt. I’ll grab a button so I can make it back!

  72. Gene Black
    February 8, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    I have several jelly rolls and some extra/leftover strips from some other jelly rolls.

    I will play along. Mine will be scrappy. I need the stash busting.

    Hey, why don’t you enable “follow this blog”? It would ensure that I see the new posts when they come out.

  73. Gene Black
    February 8, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    I blogged about this too. I hope you don’t mind.

    I’ve always wanted to make something from a jellyroll, could never pick out a pattern! Thanks for doing it for me!!! Linked to you from another link from quiltedcupcake. I’ve made a few quilt projects but I still consider myself a newbie. Can’t wait!

    February 9, 2010 at 3:45 am

    To answer a few questions —
    bright strips with a black background will look fabulous! Can’t wait to see it.

    Yes, I am, of course, happy for you to blog about our Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along. The more the merrier!

    I am often asked about linking without code and other such blog technical questions so I decided to make it a post of it’s own. Check out my new post “Blogger 101.”

    Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    I have a feeling this post is going to have my husbands name on it. Why, I don’t know. He doesn’t use the computer!! LOL Anyway, I’d like to join in and not sure if I will be using scraps or buying a jellyroll.

  93. Ronald

    I have a Sandy Gervais “Crazy 8” jelly roll. Just point me in the right direction.

    I think my neighbor, Designing Diva, signed up, so maybe we can work on them together. Lord knows, I always need a big PUSH!

  95. Cathy

  100. KatieQ
    February 10, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    I would love to join in the fun. I have never purchased a jellyroll. I keep looking at all the lovely combinations, but I have promised myself to do some serious stash busting this year so I haven’t bought one yet. I’m not sure if I will purchase one or use strips from my stash. Either way, I’m eager to play.

  101. the writer
    February 10, 2010 at 7:13 pm

    This sounds like so much fun!!

    I don’t have any jelly rolls myself, but my DH purchased one about a year ago in Tennessee (or was it Virginia?) that is black/white/red.

    Hmmm…. maybe I’ll have him make a quilt using his jelly roll & I’ll make one with scraps from my stash? That sounds fun, doesn’t it?

    My colors will probably be yellow/red/green since that will go with my living room colors.

    OK I’m in! Now to pick my jelly roll (I have a stack of them LOL) and coordinating fabrics. Oh this is gonna be fun 🙂

    February 10, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    I’m definitely in for a scrappy W/b&w accents; maybe a jellyroll too if I see a nice one where I can choose yardage. Sounds like fun!

  106. Lizzie
    February 11, 2010 at 12:06 am

    Oooooh, can I play too please?? I have about 6 jelly rolls at the moment but I really want to use ‘Pack your Bags’ by Arrin Turnmire’ for Moda. Ooh la la, I touch of French for me!
    Can’t wait to start this one.

  107. Patchwork Penguin
    February 11, 2010 at 1:23 am

    Thanks so much for organizing this!!!

  108. Pat
    February 11, 2010 at 1:55 am

    I’d like to do this, too. I will use a Fig & Plum (Moda) jelly roll. Sounds like a fun project!

  109. Patricia

    February 11, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Count me in! I haven’t done one of these before, but it sounds like such fun!

    I may try to do mine out of scraps, but I am really digging the Bar Harbor line from Minick and Simpson, so I may break down and get a jelly roll of that.

    Just found the button on someone’s blog and I think it is a great idea. I have a roll of Autumn Journey by Kansas Troubles (Moda) that has been lying around for a few years I think!
    Doing a shopping trip tomorrow to a shop that is closing down (bad news) but is offering 40% off (good news)so I will hopefully pick up the co-ordinating fabrics. Seriously though, too many of our lovely Melbourne shops seem to be closing down. Bring on March 1st!

  120. Joanne

    Sign me up! I have several jelly rolls sitting in my stash that I haven’t been able to decide on a project for, so I think this is a great opportunity for me to bust a little stash! I’m thinking of using a Spring Fever jelly roll, in hopes of brightening up as winter ends!

  123. roselady

    This sounds like it’d be SO much fun. Please count me in. I will check out my stash to decide on what few jelly rolls I have. And if I don’t have enough yardage, then I’ll definitely find some more on line and order it. Thank you so much.

  130. Cindy
    February 13, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    I just went through my stash and I’ll be using Gobble Gobble by Sandy Gervais. I will be “pinching” for the sashing but I think I’ll be able to make it work.

    I hope it is not too late to sign up. I have finally convinced myself that I can move into our new house and start a sew-a-long at the same time. I am one of the few people on the planet who does not have a jelly roll so I am going to have to go shopping! Yippee!!

  141. KarrieLyne
    February 15, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    Oh Oh Oh me me me 🙂 I want to play! I actually have a jelly roll that keeps staring at me every day and I feel bad that I don’t have a use for it yet. Perfect timing!!

  142. Joy McD
    February 16, 2010 at 12:29 am

  145. Dresden Quilter

    I am thinking about Figgy Pudding or Peace on Earth. It would be great to have a Christmas quilt in time for Christmas!

  146. Noela
    February 16, 2010 at 11:35 pm

    I think I will use Make Life by Sweetwater but I do have acouple of other jelly rolls so could change my mind before March 1. Looking forward to this.

    February 19, 2010 at 4:26 am

    I’m in! I’d have to choose between one of the 2 jelly rolls I already have: Portugal by April Cornell or Aviary by 3 Sisters. Of course, I’d be willing to buy another specifically for this project 😉 Konda, can you guess whether the sampler will look better with muted shades or bold ones? Thanks.

  153. NancyNoBlogBlogs
    February 19, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    I’m in. I went home last night and narrowed it down to the Prairie Paisley jelly roll. Now to go through my stash and get my background and border.

    Either one of those jelly rolls
    would be great. The sampler will look good with either muted shades or bold ones. The difference is just personal preference. Pick the one you feel drawn to right now.

    I am going to LOVE seeing all the different blocks variations. I think this is a hard one to get wrong.


  156. Suzanna
    February 19, 2010 at 6:39 pm

I think for this one I am going to do a scrappy quilt… I just re-organized my fabric and I have a HUGE scrap drawer just waiting to be dug through…either that or I will make up my own Jelly roll of fabrics from my stash…we shall see.

    February 20, 2010 at 5:38 am

    I stumbled on your site through another site and would love to do the Jelly Roll quilt. At this point I’m also trying to talk my mother into doing it also! I am thinking about using Moda Rawhide if I can find everything I need!

  164. Sunflower Homesteader
    February 20, 2010 at 6:28 am

    Count me in. I have been being stingy with my jelly roll. It is a moda Hemming House. This is exciting to me. Like your blog by the way.

    I am in. I just made a purchase today for a jelly roll of Bubble Gum Basics. I was looking for a bundle and this person said they also had a jelly-roll, so how could I resist. I hope it is all I am thinking it will be, if not…PUNT! Here’s the clincher… it’s coming from Canada so I am already going to be behind the eight ball, but I am keeping my fingers crossed.

  194. Kayjay

    How exciting. Mine will be scrappy. A friend and I did a jelly roll strip swap last year… Can’t wait.

  195. Kathy
    February 23, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    Let’s see… I’ve grabbed a button, now the jelly roll part … hmmm…. I have jelly rolls – boy do I have jelly rolls! The decision now as to which one to use … definitely want to use a light background for my sampler. So that should make choosing a jelly roll easier. Like I said it should!

  196. Jana
    February 23, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Parece divertido y estimulante, me gustaria unirme si lo permite, pensaba en usar los trozos que desbordan en mi cubo de la chatarra, me parece super interesante la propuesta y los estimulos para no abandonar ni cansarse. Un abrazo

    I just found this while stumbling through some quilt blogs. It sounds like a lot of fun. I’m in. I will probably make a scrappy quilt with my stash of light blues, aquas and browns. I can hardly wait to get started.

    I’m in! I need a little something to spark my creativity….which is spark-less right now!

  221. Melissa C
    February 24, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    I would like to join in also. I will be using a Harvest Home JR or going scrappy, not sure which yet.

    February 24, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    Count me in, I LOVE surprises, especially if it involves anything to do with quilting! I have several jelly rolls and I will choose which one to use when I see the first pattern.

    I love the idea. I keep collecting jelly rolls because they look so beautiful, but I never used them completely. So this will be a mixed quilt with all my left-over stripes.

    February 24, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    I’m in!

    February 24, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    I think I am going scrappy. Unless I get to my quilt shop first. Wish I still had my Figgy Pudding Jelly!

  229. Rose.W.
    February 24, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    I’ll join in, more to learn how to quilt than naything else. Sounds like a great way to learn how to do different blocks. Not sure which colour I will use though.

  230. Regena@QuiltnQuiltthings
    February 24, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    OK it sounds like a fun project–
    now I just need to decide if I will buy a jelly roll or do it scrappy.

  231. janie grohs
    February 24, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    This sounds like fun, and the first for me. I’m not even sure what a jelly roll is, so guess I will use some of my large stash.

  232. Tina
    February 24, 2010 at 10:00 pm

    I would love to try a Jelly roll, I have never bought one or made anything with one. Please consider me…

  233. smileynann
    February 24, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    Oh, gosh — do I have time to do one more project? What the hay — I’ll try it! I think I’ll just do scrappy, too.

  234. Neil
    February 24, 2010 at 11:58 pm

    Sounds like a great project. It will be fun to see what the creators come up with. I am using ‘Frolic’ by Sandy Gervais.

  235. Marym
    February 25, 2010 at 12:21 am

    Count me in! I have several jelly rolls and I’ll decide which one to use when I see the first block.

    February 25, 2010 at 1:31 am

    I want to join. I’ve never made a real quilt like this so it should be fun. I will probably just make a scrappy quilt as I don’t have any particular fabric in mind yet.

  239. Carol
    February 25, 2010 at 2:48 am

    I want to join the quilt along. I haven’t decided what jelly roll to use yet! We are have the Mid Atlantic quilt show this weekend, so will get something then!

  240. Burgundy Buttons

    I found your blog through Mama Sparks! I am going to join! I can’t wait…..I am not sure I need a new project–but it is definitely something I want to do–so here we go! I am going to use this as a stash buster–I really, really need to do that! Thanks so much!

  243. Karen
    February 25, 2010 at 4:08 am

  247. ana s.

    I’m in. I’m so glad I found this since it always seems to help me to have a deadline for things. So many projects waiting to be completed. I once made 3 quilts in 2 weeks, because I had a deadline. Thanks for starting this.

    Have several jelly rolls, will just have to pick one. Oh, the fun!

    Okay, I’m in. You twisted my arm, no you didn’t, I just could not pass it up. I’m in a quilt along with “p.s. i quilt” too. I just happend to have a jelly roll of Evening Mist waiting to be used. I just bought my background fabric last night and I’m ready to go. Thanks for the quilt along.

    February 25, 2010 at 3:14 pm

    I was absolutely thrilled to read about your challenge on Vickie’s Spun Sugar Quilts blog. I have so many jelly rolls and honey buns that I might as well start a bakery … or sign up for a challenge! I think I will be using Sandy Gervais’s “Objects of Desire,” because it is full of bright Spring colors 🙂

  257. Tammy
    February 25, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I just found your blog through Spun Sugar Quilts and Can’t wait for this quilt along =) I have a jelly roll that I have been saving its called Sweet by Urban Chicks ill probably use that, cant wait to see the 1st block!!!!

  258. nancydte
    February 25, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Would love to get some practical ideas for using those jelly rolls. Aviary was the first one I bought, and I haven’t done anything with it, so that will be my choice. Besides, I’m feeling a bit pastelly right now.

  259. Linda
    February 25, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    What a great idea and so much fun to have different people design the blocks! Please count me in. Now I need to go get a Jelly Roll. Thanks for the quilt-a-log.

  270. Sue
    February 25, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    This is a terrific idea! I have several jelly rolls that I couldn’t resist buying but haven’t figured out what to do with. I *think* I will use a Moda Posh Chez Moi roll. Or maybe that custom blue and brown roll that my quilt shop sold. I reserve the right to change my mind when I actually get to cutting and sewing. Thanks for having such a fun sew along!

    I’m ready for some Jelly Roll fun! A ‘Recess’ Jelly Roll has been languishing in my stash for some time now, and this is a good time for it to come out to play!

    Thanks for giving us all this opportunity to make something special!

  287. Jenniffier
    February 26, 2010 at 5:03 am

    This sound like fun. I just found your quilt along from Spun Sugar Qulits. I have just started quliting again after a 5 year break from it. I think this will be a great way to get back into the swing of things. Not sure what I will use yet. I might go through my stash or I may get a new jelly roll this weekend.

  288. Patty
    February 26, 2010 at 5:23 am

    Would love to join in. Have a jellyroll in mind but not sure of the name of it. Lots of pastel pinks and yelllows. Hope I can keep up. I recently started working full time again. More money to buy fabric but not so much time to sew it.

  289. Kelli
    February 26, 2010 at 6:43 am

    How exciting!! I have not made anything with a jelly roll yet and this will be really fun. Thank you for the email reply on signing up. I can’t wait til Monday to get started. I guess I need to go out this weekend and find a jelly roll. I like the giveaway jelly roll colors in “Simple Abundance” but I guess it will have to be what jelly rolls I can find at the local stores. Thanks for sharing your talents with us

  301. Jake and Felicia Frampton
    February 26, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    Hello. I just found your blog through Sipiweske Quilt Designs and would love to try my hand at a quilt-a-long. I am a beginner, so this should be a good learning experience for me. Since I don’t have a place to buy jelly rolls around here, I will be making my scrappy. Thanks.


  314. Lynn
    February 27, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    I’m sure I’m over-thinking this, but do I need 2 yards background fabric and 2 yards sashing fabric or does 2 yards do both the background and sashing?

  315. Crafty Girls Workshop
    February 27, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    Wow, this sounds like fun. I have many jelly rolls to choose from, so maybe I’ll pick the one i have of Oddysea by Momo or maybe Boutique, since I have yardage of that in my shop I could pull from.I might have to consult with a friend to help me decide! FUN!

    I tried to resist but I will have to join. I will have to start late as my fabric is in sea freight as I write this. We are hoping to get it very soon and I will find a jelly roll and background fabric and get started. I have a Fall jelly roll which I think I will use.

  321. Marianne

  327. Angie

    Count me in……..not sure what jelly roll I will use. My friend just gave me Rural Jardin or I may pick from my stash and make a red, white and blue one. I haven’t got a blog site………yet
    This quilt along sounds like fun.

    Count me in, too, please! Sounds like great fun. Not positive which jelly roll but I do have a set of Fig Tree with layer cake, jelly roll and some yardage. Otherwise, scrappy would help work on the stash!

    Hello everyone, I’d like to join in as well. I have grabbed two jelly rolls and can’t decide which one to use, so I may do two quilts with this “Quilt Along 2010”. One Jelly Roll is called Tiny Tidings and one is by Moda and it’s called “It’s Snowing”. Can’t wait to get started.

    I’d like to try this. Posted your button on my blog last week to remind me! It is Moda that I have, I think Vintage Holiday. Wondered if the patterns would work with ‘honey buns’. I recently bought Glace and Winter Song.

    I would like to join if it is not too late. I am going to the quilt shop tomorrow and see what they have in jelly rolls. My other idea would be using Thimbleberies or Reproductions fabrics, so I have several choices to decide from.

    Thank you and I love to see everyone progress and fabric choices.

    Oh yes! I want to play! Please include me. Now what fabric do I want to use?! I’ll have to run back into the Sweat Shop and see what jelly rolls I have–I’ve really gotten hooked on charm packs and I only have a couple jelly rolls (I think!). What fun!

  346. Janette and Nick
    March 1, 2010 at 9:49 am

    Ok, I’m last minute but I can’t resist! I have a jelly roll with lots of blues, tans, and reds that I may use (I’m at work so don’t know the name), or I might pick up one of the new Oz rolls on my way home if my shop has it.

  376. Moose on the Porch Quilts
    March 2, 2010 at 2:39 am

    Batiks would be great! If they are brighter fabrics, black would be great for the sashing. Or if they are darker fabrics, maybe a cream batik would be better.
    I haven’t seen the rest of the blocks, but I am pretty sure fat quarters will work. After all, you can cut any fat quarter into 2-1/2″ strips:)
    I don’t think the patterns will work for honeybuns — unless, you wanted to rework each block and make them 6″ blocks instead of 12.” Ohhh, that sounds like a fun idea for next year!

  377. Amy Maie
    March 2, 2010 at 2:50 am

    I am a brand new quilter and would love to try this. I just bought a jellyroll from Ebay called Moda Natures Notebook by April Cornell. also bought the charm pack and 1 1/2 yard of Moda Nature fabric. figured I could use the 1 1/2 yards for the outer boarder. I see now I still need 2 yards of material for the background and sashing.

    Just make your blocks and post the pictures on the Flickr group.
    The block was posted on my blog this morning. I just got it linked to this post.

    Since we’ve made it through block 3 (yeah!), could you let us know the size of the sashing strips? I’d like to put mine together as we go, since it seems the pattern calls for an organized layout.

    The sashing strips will be 2 1/2″–just being consistent here.

    You may want to wait though. Just thinking about getting a dominant color in your blocks distributed evenly throughout the quilt. If your blocks have less contrast, that isn’t as important.

    I can’t wait to see them all come together!

    I can’t wait to start this. My stash needs a quick diet to make room for the delightful spring collections.

    Thanks so much for this fun quilt along! I just completed my 3 blocks and should be on track for the next ones. I’ll attempt to post my blocks on the Flickr group. Hope I remember my password:)

    I’m struggling with block 3. After having it come out smaller that the other blocks, redoing, THEN measuring the strips….to my dismay, I found that one strip is approx 1/8 inch narrower than the standard 2.5 inches. So I’m doing it again, making the seams narrower. I could have chosen another fabric, but I really liked the one I picked. When I finish to my satisfaction, I will photo and post. In the meantime, I suggest measuring your strips. Mine was a commercial jelly roll.

    Wow, I had no trouble posting the first 2 blocks, but when I try this time, the block is huge (jpeg) and I can’t figure out how to smaller it to get it on the page. Help please. Thanks in advance.

    I wasn’t sure I could do this. Didn’t have a jelly roll and kinda promised myself I would try not to buy fabric. Then I realized there were “jelly roll” strips sitting right by machine that I cut for Dana’s Quilt-a-long last summer. I finished my pink and green one in her design and had cut strips for a fall one. I don’t like doing anything twice so I decided I’ll use my fall strips for your Sampler. Super that I will be able to complete it at the end of August just in time for Fall! I’ve cut my first block and will get it posted soon as it’s finished. 🙂 Thanks for doing this!

    Just now joining but have completed all four blocks. My jelly roll is called Fiesta Strip-Tease Bun Island Batiks. Doesn’t that sound exciting?

    I just love the term jellyroll! They are such fun and I commend you for putting together such a fun activity for your community to participate in!

    I hope that you will post pics as members start to finish their quilts!

    I just found this the other day, and I’m excited! I’ve never ever quilted before, but I’ve already made blocks 1 and 2, and so far so good! I love that I can complete a block during one naptime. I also don’t have a jellyroll, but I’m using my fabric scraps. Looking forward to catching up!

    I was wondering how many strips are in the Jelly roll — I found some green 2.5 inch strips that would be great but I don’t think I have enough!! 🙁

    Genny, The number of strips in a jelly roll differs depending on who made the jelly roll. A Moda jelly roll has 40 or 42. Can’t remember which. With this quilt being only 12 blocks, you should probably have enough fabric. I wanted to make sure there was plenty of fabric. (And if you do run short you could make 9 blocks or add in some extra fabric.) Come and play along!

    I’m jumping in a little late too- a big catch up on the way! I’m using Essence by Sandy Gervais and I’m just waiting for some background fabric to arrive! This is a fabulous idea- thanks!

    I’ve just found you’re blog last week and want to play. I’ve been busy making blocks and have posted a few. I thought I had a jelly roll packed away and started wacking out my project. I made a few blocks then found out a jelly roll has 42 strips, mine only had 20. whoops. I’m a new quilter. The strip pack I have is Reviera and I have 2 sets and a stash so I will do my best. I do wish I would have started out with a jelly roll though. I’m fighting the urge to start over. I’ve learned a few things and have had fun making the blocks

    Wow… This is SUCH a great idea. I keep seeing jelly rolls around but have known what to do with them… Until now! Thank you so much for this quilt-a-long. I love sampler quilts too, and this one is just the sort of size I like making too.

    Just wanted to say that I’m enjoying this quilt-along so much that Ive bought another jelly roll (Aussie fabrics, with pictures on my blog) and am going to start all over again while I wait for block 12!

    This has given me new inspiration for a Jelly Roll
