Konda is hosting the Jelly Roll Quilt Along and asked me to join her as a guest designer for one of the blocks. Of course I jumped at the chance. And it isn't too late to join us. We are just 2 blocks into the sampler and a new block comes out every 2 weeks. Even I can handle that and keep up! Doesn't everyone have a jelly roll on their shelf that needs to be used?
I recently acquired a Mini Muu Lecien Sushi Roll. The Sushi Roll is just very slightly wider with a few less pieces in it than a jelly roll. So I have to trim off a tiny tiny sliver of fabric but I don't mind that at all.
The instructions also call for a background fabric to be added to your jelly roll. So I chose this strawberry print.And since I will need some extra strips I'm adding this little fabric candy that a *friend* sent to me earlier this year. It goes perfectly.
So this is block #1. You can find the instructions here. It is designed by Konda herself. It is easy and really fun. You can make it in less than an hour.
This is block #2. You can find the instructions for this one here. It is designed by April and was also fun and easy to make in under an hour. Ha, I just saw my stripes are not in the same direction. Oh well. I'm not redoing it.
Sorry for the fuzzy sneak peek. This is the block I designed and mine will be block #6 with instructions out on May 10.
Come on and join us! There are prizes and also a flickr group started to see what everyone is making. Dust off that jelly roll. It isn't a time consuming project and if you keep up it will NOT become a UFO. You can grab the button on my side bar and post it on your blog. And even if you don't have a blog or join the flickr group, you can still sew with us. Come on!!
