Jelly Rolls

No, I'm not talking about this kind of jelly roll:


Though that does look good.

I stopped by Joann's yesterday to buy some fabric. They were having an amazing sale, and I had several 50% off coupons, so I thought I'd take advantage of them.

That is a dangerous place when they're having a sale.

As I was walking through the store looking for my items, I saw this out of the corner of my eye:


It's called a Jelly Roll. It's a roll or 2 1/2" by 42" fabric strips.

How can you resist that?

I loved the color combination for this Jelly roll - it's called "Neutral Mediterranean". I want to make a quilt out of it. I'm not sure what room I'll use it in yet, but I love those fresh colors, so I'm going to find a place to use it.


Pretty, no?

Yay for Jelly Rolls!


P.S. A big congratulations to my friend, Amber, who just welcomed her sweet baby girl, Eden Grace, into the world on April 7th! Amber and I went through the same sort of problems getting pregnant, so I was thrilled when she got pregnant a couple months after I did! Her little girl was also born three weeks early, just like Wyatt, and she's doing well. So happy for you, Friend!

so the jelly rolls are just what they call them at the store? and then you open it up and use the fabric?
i'm interested in talking to you about FAM-pregnancy achievement and what you have learned so far using FA.

Joann's is so much fun:) I like those colors too - can't wait to see what you make with it!

Amanda said...

Whatever you do will look nice with those colors. Jelly rolls are exciting. lol. I bought a Moda Bliss jelly roll a while back and can't decide what quilt pattern I want to use for it yet. I just get it out and look at it once in a while. haha.

Beautiful colors, and patterns. I never knew they were called that, but I don't visit fabric stores very often, maybe that's why, hehe. ;-)

I love those colors, Callie. :) I wish I could find some more time to sew.

I used one of these to make a quilt for Baby Girl! They are awesome, because if you've ever quilted before, you know...cutting and measuring is the worst part!

Mandie said...

That fabric is so bright and cheery. I'm a knitter myself and I can go all kinds of crazy over yarn - definitely understand the thrill of finding some beautiful textiles to get creative with!

Elisabeth Allen said...

What a gorgeous quilt! I love the sunny colours. They make me want to start quilting too!

Eden Grace is a BEAUTIFUL name for a little girl ...
