National Jelly Roll Day Celebration

Our good friends at Moda Fabrics have announced a National Sew-Along for quilters —Project: Jelly Roll and National Sew A Jelly Roll Day on Saturday, September 16th. All quilters collect fabric, and many of us collect “pre-cuts” as well. Pre-cut fabric bundles  come in all shapes and sizes and so many of us leave them all wrapped up looking pretty on our shelves and never use them in a project. One reason for this, besides the fact that they are pretty, is that we don’t know what to do with them. Well, here’s your chance to open up a package of 2½” wide strips and join in and sew!

Not sure what to make? We have lots of inspiration for you.

First, check out this week’s McCall’s Workshop Wednesday with Mary Kate Karr-Petras. The workshop is all about strip-pieced quilts, perfect timing making a quilt with Jelly Rolls.

No time to shop? Or, search for fabric? Check out these patterns and kits. You can celebrate National Sew a Jelly Roll Day with a FINISHED QUILT!

    I am hosting a national Jelly Roll Day at my house with some of my quilting friends. There will be about 10 of us and we are so looking forward to it. I am trying to stay with the jelly roll them and haven chicken salad on rolls, with fruit and Jelly roll for dessert. Just some fun time to come.
