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 have never made a jelly roll quilt because I have not seen a pattern that really inspires me, until now! I love your clematis pattern.

Jelly Roll Slice - a free pattern on the Fat Quarter shop site, has been a favorite of mine. I would love to make Camille's spool quilt that is jelly roll friendly some day. Your fabric is so soft and pretty - love the colors and designs - and your new Clematis pattern.

My favorite jelly roll quilt is the Fractured Paintbox.

I would have to say my favourite jelly roll pattern is ... I don't have one! I've NEVER bought or made anything from a jellyroll! I've always been so intimidated by all precuts but charm and layer cake cuts. So, maybe I'll say the Clematis Pattern because your pattern would halo me know how and it's a nice modern pattern which is my aesthetic. Thank you!!

Oh my these colours are just perfect...have had trouble finding colours that are me... bright but lighter...and these are gorgeous. I do need to confess...have no specific favourite among all the jelly roll patterns, but all I can say I do love the more traditional blocks...made a bit more modern. And another confession...do have trouble wrapping up a jelly roll ...lol...

I have a Christmas jelly roll all ready to make a Log Cabin quilt or an Irish Chain quilt. I just haven't been able to decide on the specifics yet. I do believe that New Romance will become my new favorite Moda collection.

I love your new line. So pretty and delicate. I would like to make the Cutting Corners quilt as shown by The Fat Quarter Shop. Congratulations on a job well done!

I have to admit that I don't have a favorite jelly roll pattern----I collect jelly rolls, but I don't use them!!
I'd love to win this beautiful roll and pattern so I can break my habit!
Thanks, and have a good weekend!

My first and favorite jelly roll pattern is Lattice Bones by Julie from 627handworks. I found it at the Moda Bakeshop when I started back to sewing quilts a few years back. I've been dying to make it again.

I love making the jelly roll jam pattern from Fat Quarter Shop. It went together quick and turned out very pretty. Thanks for the chance to win!

I think Clematis is my favorite jelly roll pattern. I have only made one jelly roll quilt several years ago, so I haven't had a favorite pattern. Yours is lovely, but part of that is the fabric. Love the fabric!

I made a Moda Bake Shop quilt called "Granny's Insanity Quilt" by Haley Anderson (Happiness in the Making) and love it...it went together very quickly and really show cased the fabrics...can't remember the jelly roll that I used but plan on making another one soon.

Your fabric collection is very pretty! My granddaughter would love a quilt using these fabrics! I recently saw a jelly roll quilt called Front Porch Swing that I would like to try!

I love, love the Clematis pattern and the "First Romance" jelly roll. That is a collection I have to have. I have a jelly roll stash put aside to make a postage stamp quilt. I have made several other quilts from jelly rolls but I think, my most favorite is going to be clematis, love the little flowers with the jelly roll strips ! Can't wait to get this collection and DO IT......................

My favorite jelly roll pattern is "Ribbon Candy" by Amanda at Little Bunny Quilts. I have pinned it to sew. One day, hopefully, I will. This pattern that you are going to release is very cute, also. I love how the fabric inspired your pattern. Thank you!

Your quilt is so beautiful and I love the bright happy fabrics. The next jelly roll quilt I hope to make is twinkle twinkle, in a book called Striking Strips, by Kate Henderson. She is an author that lives close to home in our sleepy corner of Western Australia :-).

I really like your new pattern and I'd use that darling new fabric collection of yours to make it.

Seeing your email announcing your new fabric jelly roll this morning put a smile on my face and made my feet dance... with the week I had... though I have no right to complain since we have so many who have lost all... my firbro and I have had a really bad week and this would make it all better... love all your work.. but this new set of designs would make a wonderful addition to my fabric stash!
Have a good weekend everyone!

Oh that is a difficult choice. There are so many lovely patterns all equal in desirability! I do like Lori Holt's Granny Squared Quilt (made but not quilted) and Stems by Fig Tree. I can not chose and just say I like them all and can't wait to purchase some of your fabric!!!
