Jelly Rolls, charms and layer cakes, Oh My!!
Yesterday I spent the day on the couch with the remote and an ice cream bucket. It’s been years since I had the flu. I awoke today to a phone call from my daughter wanting to go on a quilt shop run. Who can resist that?? Not me! Thankfully I was feeling better and even better news….the quilt shop had a FABULOUS sale! Moda Charm packs $5 and jelly rolls and layer cakes were $20…I’ve never seen them that cheap! So I had to buy some….LouAnn’s had such great deals and lots to choose from. I was really proud of myself that I only bought this….
I had to laugh at my daughter Kelli. She bought some things too and had to come home and pet and reorganize all her purchases. I just keep my jelly rolls rolled up until I use them…not Kelli….
Here she is unrolling and reorganizing.
Tomorrow I am going to take the charm packs of the Charisma fabric and work on the a disappearing 9 patch quilt. We have a wedding next weekend and I’d love to have it done for a gift. I’m always running a little late. Last weekend I finished and gave this quilt as a graduation gift.
This was made with a Moda’s Charisma charm pack and a little extra fabric. The pattern is from Quilts and More Winter 2008 issue. I should have taken a better picture..but like I said I am always running late and had to get it wrapped.
Check back and see what gets made out of these Moda charm packs and jelly rolls. I hope I get lots sewn and can get back to LouAnn’s. The sale runs to the end of the month….this could be dangerous to my checkbook…maybe my marriage too.
