We woke up this morning with the happy realization that the first annual National Jelly Roll Day had finally arrived.  A banner day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone here at RCQ and all our guests. 

Now that the daylight has vanished from the Illinois prairie we can, with Moda Fabrics United Notions'  permission, release  the much anticipated #projectjellyroll patterns here for you as free downloads

A BIG thank you to Brigette Heiland of Zen Chic and Moda for providing  these NSAJRD patterns.

To start you off - here is a little gift from RockingChairQuilts.com : A Jelly Roll Tip Card and pre-cut yardage chart for you to download and keep as a handy reference.  If you are nearby and can come into the shop we will give you one when you buy a Jelly Roll (while supplies last)

HERE ARE 10 IDEAS FOR JELLY ROLL STRIPS AND SCRAPS:

  1.  Make strip sets for 9-patch blocks
  2.  Make strip sets for 4-patch blocks
  3.  Cut strips 4 1/2" long. Use with 2 1/2" squares (Moda Candy squares work great) to create scrappy Flying Geese blocks.
  4.  Sew strips together for a scrappy back.
  5.  Make "framed" 9-patch blocks (1 Jelly Roll strip is enough to frame a 6" finished 9-patch.
  6. Make a "coins" quilt using left over Jelly Roll pieces.
  7. Make Log Cabin blocks.
  8. Make piano key borders for a scrappy quilt.
  9. Make kitchen accessories: pot holders, place mats, mug rugs, or coasters.
  10. Make scrappy binding by cutting Jelly Roll strips into fourths and then sewing together as many pieces as needed for the length desired.

We're not picking our favorite block photo, or looking for nice seams or anything like that.  This isn't a sewing contest - it's a neighborhood of quilters sharing pictures of their projects and ideas.  This is a FUN neighborhood we're building, such a happy place that the quilt police need never come down our streets, so don't stress about it -  just let the construction begin.

Stitch up your block, snap a picture and send it off to us. The weekly winner will be chosen in a random drawing from all the people who shared a photo of that week's block with us - we just want to see your blocks so the weekly prize drawing is a way to thank you for sharing photos of your Be My Neighbor quilt blocks.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT

YOUR  BE MY NEIGHBOR QUILT -FROM MODA:

  • The finished quilt will measure 68″ x 84 1/2″.
  • There are 16 blocks in the quilt top.  The rows are separated by horizontal sashing strips.
  • These are very scrappy blocks so exact yardage for a set number of fabrics has not been calculated. Mix your favorite Moda prints to create your colorful neighborhood!

Fabric Requirements:
16 House Blocks: Assorted Prints & Solids
Background and Sashing: 4 -1/2 yards
Borders: 1 – 1/4 yards
Binding: 2/3 yard
Backing: 4 – 3/4 yards

For a quilt using the same background for blocks, sashing and borders, you will need 5 – 3/4 yards total.  For scrappy backgrounds, sashing and borders, allow for just a little bit more fabric.

 Get your FREE pattern, get some fabrics together and get sewing!  WE are having fun enjoying all of the Be My Neighbor blocks.  I appreciate everyone who is taking the time to share their blocks. I can't wait to see the pictures of block 10! -Carol
