National Sew A Jelly Roll Day!

This past Saturday we celebrated the first National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!

I decided to get some Quilting friends together and put them to work making Jellyroll quilts for charity.

We rent a room at our local public library and sew there every month.
I provided some refreshments and the ladies each brought something to share.
No Jellyroll event would be complete without Jelly Donuts and Jelly Beans!

Moda fabrics kindly donated 14 jelly rolls.

I didn’t snap a picture of my display fast enough and those rolls disappeared faster that the donuts!

We had so much fun sewing …

And chatting …

But also getting the job done!

Some got very creative!

Some quilt tops were finished …

And others will be finished at home and brought back next month when we each decide where our quilts are being donated.

We had a great time and I can’t wait to see all the completed quilts!

I wonder what we can come up with for next year!

Happy Quilting!

    You all did a wonderful job of those fabric jelly rolls – beautiful quilt tops! Love how jelly roll donuts were also on the menu – that fit perfect with Moda’s Bakeshop theme! It looked like a very fun time!

    Seeing those quilts made me think about “less is more”… no complicated pattern, nor lots of cutting, and gorgeous! Thank you for sharing, it should have been indeed a great day!

  3. I am so behind in my blogs! This looks like such fun. I made one of those jelly roll quilts years ago where you join the rolls end to end, and it was a blast, took no time at all.
