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

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.
Is it Monday yet? I can’t wait to start the first blocks for this quilt and the pinwheel quilt!
