Fast Fabric Friday

11 comments
So Blogger has new editiing capabilities.  Let's just say "ABOUT TIME!".  And I hope the features work (for me) and I learn to figure out how to use them.  As most of you know I'm hosting a quilt retreat today and tomorrow at my house for my sisters and nieces that want to learn to quilt.  Our theme is "Freda" for this retreat.  And we'll be making my "Freda's Flower's" quilt using jelly rolls.  I've been thinking a lot about jelly rolls since I was in the sampler quilt this summer.  And the thing I love to do is make up my own jelly rolls.  I wish more Etsy sellers would customize precuts sorta like Sew Mama Sew does with their fat quarter packs.  Some other shops do that, too.  I think that is more fun.
I do like these 2 new Moda lines for precuts.  The one on the left is Punctuation and the one on the right is Dream On.  They are both really special.  Speaking of special, the jelly rolls are on top of one of my favorite vintage pieces.
I thought these Japanese tiny florals would make a good jelly roll.  And I did have a jelly roll with some of these fabrics in before, but I used that for my sampler (along with other fabrics I pulled).  I just may make these prints into a small jelly roll by cutting my own 2 1/2" strips.
So of course I'm busy with my retreat and so I'm posting ahead.  But I had to add this little Michael Miller fabric into my post today.  It doesn't fit with the jelly roll idea but you have to admit they are pretty sweet.
I've also been very busy with this little girl this week.  She's been helping dry and bottle pears and (cough) "helping' me get ready for the retreat.  Chelsey came from California for Jamie's birthday Wed.  So she's been at our house, too.  Busy busy at the hive!  I will try to catch up on my comments and google reader next week (behind yet again).

I brought my Bliss Jelly roll with me to San Diego to get started on my own Freda's Flowers. (Thank you again for your generous gift of the pattern). I will be working on mine while your family group is working on yours. I will be ESP-ing you.
