Exhibit A: I've finally started on the project.
I'm encouraging everyone to use a jelly roll or set of strips somehow, some way this month. You don't have to use the same pattern I do. Feel free to use any pattern out there, or make up your own, so long as you're busting some rolls. And please do feel free to go ahead and start on your project! Just because I've been procrastinating a wee bit doesn't mean that you have to procrastinate also!
Bummed/Disillusioned that I'm not hosting a formal quilt-along? Just so I don't leave you completely hanging, here are a few of my favorite quilt-alongs and step by step tutorials that use jelly rolls:
- Lawn Chair Quilts from Moda Bake Shop
- Avignon Picnic from Moda Bake Shop
- Gobble Chain Tutorial from Piece 'N' Quilt
- Hexagon Quilt-Along
- Postage Stamp Quilt-Along:
- Fat Quarterly Quilt-Along:
- A KitchenAid cover
- Cross-Terrain Quilt from Moda Bake Shop
Also, keep in mind that you can sub-cut your 2.5" strips into strips of varying widths (one 2.5" strip becomes a 1" strip and a 1.5" strip, or one 2.5" strip becomes two 1.25" strips) to make strings for a string-pieced quilts. Here are some of my favorite string-pieced tutorials:
