Happy National Sew a Jelly Roll Day to you!
This year, though, we added a new twist: we all have to make patterns included in the November/December 2018 issue of Quilting Quickly, which is our magazine that focuses exclusively on patterns designed for quilting pre-cuts. Challenge accepted!
But wait, there’s more! This particular issue will include a bunch of ideas for what to do with the inevitable scraps that are left over after using a bundle of quilting pre-cuts to make something. So, we asked ourselves if we could each come up with a small project to make use of the leftovers we end up with. Again we say: Challenge accepted!
Who’s Got What:
Here’s a quick rundown of the different fabric collections we’re working with today and who’s planning to make what. Be sure to come back in a few weeks to see our projects!
Lori Baker is making the Whirls & Twirls pattern with the All-Weather Friend collection, Eileen Fowler chose the Brew collection to make a new version of Chroma Keys, and Annette Falvo is using the Garden Variety collection to make Christmas Knots with an alternate border.
Both Genevieve Stafford Hook and Tracy Mooney picked the Looking Forward collection, but Genevieve is using it to make Chroma Keys while Tracy is making Linked Up. Kelly Eisinger is working with the Japanese indigo-inspired Machi collection to make Starred Over, and Mary Kate Karr-Petras is going to make Bristol Glass with the Prairie Grass collection.
Jenna James is also making Chroma Keys but with the Voysey collection, and Carrie Sisk is combining the 101 Maple Street collection with 1930s-inspired prints from the Play All Day collection by American Jane to make Starred Over.
So that’s what we’re up to on this lovely National Sew a Jelly Roll Day. We’ve got our work cut out for us—or rather, we’ve got to get to work cutting our fabric. We can’t wait to show you our fabulous results! And be sure to keep your eyes out for the Quilting Quickly November/December 2018 issue, on sale November 6.
