Project Jelly Roll 2020: Project Inspiration and a Sew Off

Sew a Jelly Roll Day is just over a week away, Saturday September 19.
Starting today, when you buy a Jelly Roll at our shop you will be given a free pattern, there are four to choose from. 
Esther, Carrie and I all started a new Jelly Roll Project this past weekend to provide some inspiration for you. 
Esther made this Jelly Roll Rug using Cider from Basic Grey. We have just a few of these Jelly Rolls in stock, and the yardage will be shipping later this fall.
Carrie is working on a Jelly Weave Quilt (pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew and available in our shop) using a really fun new Christmas collection Jolly Season by Abi Hall. 
I made this quilt using Branded by Sweetwater, the pattern is called I-strip by GE Designs, and it came together really quick, as in I took the jelly Roll home Friday afternoon, and brought a completely finished quilt with me back to the shop Tuesday Morning.
These 3 patterns are all great uses for Jelly Rolls, we also love the Jelly Filled book by Vanessa Goertzen, it has 18 patterns ranging from beginner to more advanced all written specifically for Jelly Rolls. What are your favorite Jelly Roll Patterns?
These are the limited edition Grunge Jr Jelly Rolls available for Project Jelly Roll this year, use them on their own, mix them up, or use with a collection of fabrics.
We have early released Jelly Rolls from Balboa, Cider, Folktale, Figs and Shirtings in stock, the yardage from these collections will all be available in our shop later this fall. We also have Jelly Rolls of several of Moda's current fabric collections in the shop just waiting to be purchased, unrolled and turned into something beautiful. 
This year Esther, Carrie and I will be doing a sew off. We will each choose a jelly roll and race to make a Short and Long quilt, this is one of the Free Patterns available for Project Jelly Roll this year. We will start at 10am with a live video on our Facebook Page introducing each of us and the jelly roll we chose, and then live checkins at 11am, noon, 1pm and 2pm to see our progress.  We would love for you to join us in this race from the comfort of our own home. You can post pictures of your progress in the comments section of the video or our final photo of the day if you wish. 

Have a great weekend,
