Cindy reporting in from Ohio!
Last week, Sandy said she was in a pickle. This week, I am in a jam…that would be a jelly roll jam!
When Sandy was here in August, she left behind 4 jelly rolls (psssst, me thinks she “accidentally” forgot them!) These Bali Pops from Hoffman Fabrics are very nice. There is a wide selection of brights and darks with lots of texture.
The Sun Print fabrics by Alison Glass are pretty and cheerful.
I bought this Dot Crazy jelly roll from Weeks Ringle when Sandy and I were in Chicago for the 2018 Quilt Festival. Weeks and Bill Kerr are the co-founders of Modern Quilt Studio and we very much enjoyed talking with Weeks about their modern fabric design and quilting journey.
So to summarize my jam, 4 Sandy jelly rolls + 1 Cindy jelly roll = 5 Cindy jelly rolls!
What should I do with 5 jelly rolls? I think I have some choices here:
A. Break apart the jelly roll packages, mix all 5 fabric lines together and sort the strips by color.
B. Keep each jelly roll package intact to “stay true” to the fabric line.
C. Entertain an unknown option I haven’t even considered.
What would you do? Let me know!

I got a smoking hot deal on those Bali pops at a quilt shop that was going out of business. I think this weekend was national jelly roll day — timely post, sister!
Well, the Bali pops will play together, that’s a given, right? What feels the most adventurous? I’d go with that one 🙂
Thanks, Wendy! I agree, the Bali pops will work well together.
B.. Keep them separate. That way you will have five different quilts.
Ahhhh, very wise….thank you!
You could do a little bit of both #1 and #2 with a step pattern!
Ok, will play with this idea.
Love the Bali Pops! Gorgeous.
I love jelly rolls so many great patterns out there. I’d keep them separate but that’s me.
Thanks, Christi! Separate seems to be the consensus for most of our readers so far.
Thanks, Christi! I am leaning toward keeping them separate!
Must put in a vote. Mix up all the Bali pops, and use them together. I’d be tempted to combine the Alison Glass with Dot Crazy.Whatever you do, it’ll be fun.
I’m always torn between following the rules or throwing everything into the air to see where it lands….I like where you are going with the Glass/Dot combo…
Yes, this just might work! Bali pop colors will all work together and then the Allison Glass with Dot Crazy will be nice and bright! Thanks!
It would be nice if maybe they could be kept separate in case there are some people who quilt on a budget but whatever you decide to make will be fabulous!
Thanks, Deb…most of our readers agree that separate is best!
