happy national jelly roll day ~ & a giveaway

Giveaway closed and winners notified.  Thank you so much! :)

My new jelly roll friendly pattern Clematis was inspired by a print from First Romance. 

It's new in my shop today! (There's also a mini version. :)

As a brand new fabric designer for Moda, it's crazy exciting for me to actually hold - in my bare hands - a jelly roll that swirls with the prettiest colours of "First Romance" (in stores soon for all you lovelies who have been so patiently waiting for months now, thank you thank you thank you).

Even better, Moda has give me TWO First Romance jelly rolls to give away!  PLUS, to help inspire you to make something with a jelly roll, I'm going to email the winner a PDF of my new jelly roll pattern Clematis (see above).

If you'd like a chance to win a jelly roll of my debut collection and a pattern, simply leave a comment here telling me the name of your favourite jelly roll pattern - either one that you've made or one that you'd like to make.  There are literally 743 million jelly roll patterns out there to choose from.  I also highly recommend checking out Moda's Bakeshop - a website chalk-a-block full of patterns designed specifically for precuts, including our celebrated jelly roll.  Oh, and did you know all the patterns over there are f.r.e.e?


100% zero dollars ... AND 100% zero calories.

Giveaway closes Sept 16th and is open worldwide.

Happy National Jelly Roll Day everyone!

I think a tote bag of some kind and also some zipper pouches would be cute in a jelly roll. survivor972002@midco.net

Your new pattern Clematis combined with First Romance are inspirational & I will be trying to make my first quilt for many years with this combination. Thank you for leading me back to the world of pretty colour & wonderful hand made items.

I like the Shortcake jelly roll pattern!
September 14, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterMartha
I am new to quilting, so I do not have a favorite yet. I do like the jelly roll jam idea. Can't wait for your beautiful fabric.

I love the Shortcake pattern by Cluck, Cluck Sew for jelly rolls. โค๏ธ So excited for your fabric line. You have such an eye for detail!

I'm liking the Sweet Sixteen Quilt by Shannon Mower. Otherwise I would just take 1 3/4" diamonds and make EPP 6-pointed stars and join with not necessarily white background diamonds--just something that would set it off well. Your colors in this line are so pretty!

A log cabin quilt would be absolutely gorgeous in your new fabrics!!
September 14, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterVicki Sprain
What a lovely quilt! I'd wanted to make a friendship braid quilt for years, but kept putting it off. I thought it would be a lot of work. Then I found out you could make one using a jelly roll and the binding tool. So easy and quick! I've made 2 now and plan to make another. Thanks for the opportunity to win a jelly roll. We can never have too many!

I made a Summer in the Park variation quilt for my little sister when she was having major surgery a few years ago. That one meant a great deal to me. There are so many jelly roll quilts on my "to do" list, but I have to say your Clematis pattern has caught my eye and my imagination.
September 14, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterKaren M
I would LOVE to make a traditional RailFence pattern in brights and pastels, like your jelly roll designs. Fabulous!

I like making vintage looking quilts like the ones my grandmother would make using pinwheels. I love making most any kind of quilt. And love to make them and give them away as gifts. Now that I am on disability making gifts for my grandchildren is often times the best I can do. I would love to have some of your new jelly rolls. I just love the colors and images on the material. Thanks for sharing.
