National Jelly Roll Day has arrived. Part of the day’s celebration are free Jelly Roll patterns from Moda fabrics, While we’d love to have you visit the little shop on Meadow Street, we know everyone reading this is not close enough to travel here for our National Jelly Roll Day doings. If you can stop in, printed copies will be available here at RCQ for all our guests. 

Now that NSAJRD is here, with Moda Fabrics United Notions'  permission, we can release  the much anticipated #projectjellyroll patterns here on our blog today (scroll down for your free downloads).

A BIG thank you to Brigette Heiland of Zen Chic , the Ruby Star Society 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 copy, print out or keep as a handy reference on your smart phone or tablet.  If you are nearby and can come into the shop we will give you a tip card when you buy a Jelly Roll (while supplies last) If you visit the shop for Jelly Roll Day be sure to ask about the in store specials on Jelly Rolls and Jelly related patterns , books etc.



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.

XOXO Quilt #Moda #Aurifil @abihallcreate

Well I could scarcely help myself the other day, after measuring out some Kiss Kiss fabric for a customer...in a weak moment I busted open a Kiss Kiss  layer cake and got busy stitching up this XOXO quilt.  The pattern from Me and My Sister  is a free download from the designer's website.  You can download yours  HERE.  Please adhere to their allowable uses for the pattern.  This is so quick to put together  when you start with a Layer Cake

I used  DOTS TONAL LIPSTICK 35255 23  to bind it .

I used DOTS TONAL LIPSTICK 35255 23 to bind it .

This sweet quilt only took a few hours to put together, a  Kiss Kiss layer cake and one yard of fabric ( I used Dots Cloud 35255-11)  are all you need to make the quilt top. Kits Available

Following instructions in the pattern download, place a  square on the corner of your layer cake square and stitch diagonally across the smaller square.  I use the  Clearly Perfect Angles  cling and I don't ever have to draw the diagonal lines on the smaller square to stitch on.

BONUS FUN TIME!  Before you cut away the corner of the square run   a second row of stitches   1/4" away from the first diagonal.

 This will create a Half Square Triangle (HST) that you can use in another project.  I confess that I am often too lazy to do this extra stitching, but this fabric is SO   cute I didn't want to throw away those corners

The XOXO Quilt needs 36 blocks, so you will create 72 bonus Half Square Triangles!

I especially like the Churn Dash block so using some additional fabrics from the  Kiss Kiss  fabric collection by Abi hall, I fussy cut some lovebirds for my center squares, then  used Lipstick Dots and Cloud dots to create the needed units for my churn dash blocks.

I like to swap out the squares until I get a block I like.

Stitched together:  the 72  leftover corners from your  XOXO quilt are enough HST to make 18 Churn dash blocks! (You'll need to use additional fabric for your center squares and side units.)  What are some blocks that you like to make with HSTs?  (comment below if you'd like to share your ideas) Thanks for reading! - Carol

Holly Jolly This and That

Sew many patterns I want to make!

 A book by Sherri Falls for This and That Pattern Company

Now that Thanksgiving has been enjoyed, I am revisiting this Book (it has 18 great Holiday Projects in it!) This is my favorite book in the shop right now.  Even more so now that December is afoot!

 One sweet pattern in the book is the 'Oh Christmas Tree'  tree skirt.  I made this one from a 25th and Pine Jelly Roll click HERE to get your Jelly Roll.

 Besides being fun to make and pretty when finished , I like that this project uses up nearly the entire jelly roll.  You'll need some other fabrics to make the binding, ties and backing.

The hexagons in the tree skirt are pieced in nifty rows,  No set in seams or tricky business in this festive project.  A 60 degree ruler is a most helpful tool for cutting the tree skirt pieces.  I like this one from Creative Grids rulers
