A New Free Pattern!

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been working on a new quilt design with a “Dot Crazy” jelly roll.  These fabrics were designed by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr of Modern Quilt Studio.

Sandy and I collaborated over the miles on this design.  Thank goodness for cell phone technology…what would we do without it?  I would send her photos of different layouts and she would give me feedback.

Below is the result of our collective design strategy and we are calling this quilt “Corner Kick”.

We love these fabrics because they are bright, bold and modern.  The blue and white diamonds help anchor the blocks and bring all these fabrics together in a very easy, beginner friendly quilt.

We think these bright fabrics make the perfect quilt for sunny day picnics or a casual throw on a cool summer evening.

In a Jelly Roll Jam

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!
