Thank you to Janette Harwood for showing ladies how to make jelly roll quilts on Saturday. There were several ladies busy sorting and sewing up strips. Near the end of the day there were at least 5 quilt tops close to completion which is great for a days work.
The quilts below were made by Janette and Maree well done ladies.

I was unable to attend on Saturday but have found a jelly roll at least 20 years old, unravelled and fraying so I intend to sew it up, just to make more room to store other things. The colours are 20 years old too and now I know why it has never been used! Looking forward to seeing pictures of some of the quilts.

Now for the next challenge. Don't forget out Christmas in July. The challnge was set lst Christmas "Blank Canvas". If you are new or decided not to do the challenge please still come a long for a day of fun and companionship. Now where did my creative juices go!!

Jelly Rolls

There has been a lot of talk recently at our group about jelly roll quilts.  They're convenient, you can do some wonderful designs with them and you don't have to match fabrics because all the hard work has been done for you!  I have a few *cough* unfinished jelly roll quilts and I also have jelly rolls sitting on my shelves that I just want to pull out and stroke every now and again!

The great thing about jelly rolls is that you don't have to just make quilts with these fabrics!  They're great for smaller projects too.

Here's a table runner that Julie has just finished.  It's beautiful!

What will you make with your jelly rolls?
