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.
