    A Little Help?

    Hey everyone, we're looking to do a jelly roll week on the blog (and a corresponding sale in the shop) but could you gals take pictures of any project you've done with a jelly roll and post it up in here, then we'll feature them throughout the week on the blog? The YSGLCG is working on a video to show the steps for posting a photo on here if you're having trouble, so don't worry if you're having trouble attaching a photo, just take them of every quilt you've done personally and then write a quick blurb about how you got the idea and so on?

    Thanks!!! This should be a lot of fun and hopefully will help some people get new ideas.

      I'm not much help either. I did not finish a Jelly Roll project I had a lot invested in - it was boring and bland all in one fabric line. I have long cut my own 'jelly rolls' (2.5"strips WOF) as I prefer my own fabric and color choices to mix in a project, Just yesterday while on our road trip I saw a wonderful 'strip set' of fall colors - and I should have bought it as it 's just the sort of thing I enjoy! (bought the Square in a Square ruler and book instead, the author, Jodi Barrows, was visiting there!)
      If you can't see it riding by on a fast horse - it ain't there.

        I don't have any jelly roll projects either, darn! I usually cut out the strips my self. But that does not mean I won't buy any in the future. I have layer cakes and charms squares though.

                  I bought a Jelly Roll of last season's Christmas fabrics(It's Snowing by Deb Strain), and haven't done anything with it. Sorry. I have seen some neat zig-zag, weave, or braid quilts made with them. I just haven't gotten around to actually making anything yet. I probably wouldn't have bought it, except that it was at a huge discount in the clearance section of the LQS this summer.

                    Oh color me envious.. I'd have bought that in a heart beat, too.. I have the nickles (sharm pack) and have a plan, but like you have not used them yet
                    I just saw a great braid pattern/instruction in a magazine.. McCalls Quilting - August 2009.. page 69 ..

                      OK! I'll have to check that magazine out.
                      I was hoping to do something with the Jelly Roll fabric before Christmas this year, but since it is really for me, I probably won't get to it. I am going for "homemade" things this year as gifts. Yikes, that adds stuff to the "To Do" list though.

                        To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.
