Jelly Roll Quilt Along Backing

After three months of not working on my Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along, I determined the backing – light blue with swrils.  It is part of Moda’s “All about color” Cozy Quilt Design line.  I had to venture all the way to Orlando to stumble across this fabric at Quilt’s Cove.

Here is a glimpse of the four squares so far with the backing.


Orange or Green?

I am working on a simple quilt using a Jelly Roll with the Shades of Blue fabric by Moda.  The instructions — or recipe — is posted on Moda Bake Shop.  It is the Whirly Wheels Quilt.  It reminds me of easy pinwheels!  Now the big decision: GREEN or ORANGE for the sashing?  Thoughts?


Jelly Rolling Along

Believe it or not, I am completely up to date with the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along that is hosted by Konda’s Moose on the Porch Quilts Blog.  Here are the first four squares:

On a [Jelly] Roll….

Two blocks in three days!  I am on a roll with my jelly roll quilt along.  I thought that I was all caught up with my three blocks…then I realized that block four was posted yesterday.  My new goal is to keep on schedule.  Stay tuned to see the progress.


Second Square for the Jelly Roll Quilt

Although it is almost a month behind schedule, I finished the second square for the Jelly Roll Quilt Along.


Ready for Quilt Alongs

Not only am I very excited for the Pinwheel Party and the Mystery Jelly Roll Quilt Alongs to start today, my mom is also excited.  We visited a local quilt shop, Chester County Quilting, to pick out her fabrics.  Here is a preview of her fabrics:

Mystery Jelly Roll

Two months ago, I impulsively picked up a Jelly Roll with no intentions.  It was my first pre-cut fabric purchase.   I had many ideas from a coin quilt to a table runner.  I finally made up my mind when I saw the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along hosted by Konda’s Moose on the Porch Quilts Blog.  For a twist, it is a mystery quilt too!  My jelly roll is Moda’s “All about color” Cozy Quilt Design.  For the background and sashing, I am using Robert Kaufman’s pure black.
