A New Jelly Roll Project

Yesterday was one of those days when all I wanted to do was quilt. That would be fine, great even, except for the whole work thing. So I worked with half a brain and thought about quilting with the other (women are the best multi-taskers right?). I do a lot of writing at my day job so I'm still hoping I wrote complete sentences without adding words like "jelly rolls" or "too much stash" or "wonder what new patterns Pat is working on" or "wonder what's new at Sweet Home Quilt Co." Anyway, I made it through the day and drove home, did not pass go, did not spend $200, did not get a speeding ticket and went straight to the sewing machine. (I did make a small detour to feed the cats, priorities you know). So I sewed, sewed, sewed until it was time to throw some laundry in and go to bed.
So here's a couple of the blocks I finished. The pattern is "Pandora's Box" from Jelly Roll Quilts (the best jelly roll book!). The fabric is Moda (of course) and the line is called "Twiggy". This is going to be a super quick quilt to finish up, hopefully this weekend.

They are just too cute. I must get that book as I have heard so much about it and I am in lust with both Moda and jelly rolls...well, anything bake shop.

Thanks for your loving comment, I felt the hug all the way up here!

We are the best multi taskers you are so correct. You probably got more sewing in today than most people...You got some quality evening sewing done.

As for wondering what Pat is working on...you will be the first to see I promise..the next time I see you... you get a private show and tell. Don't tell anyone. hahaha

Those blocks are lovely! I've yet to buy a jelly roll but now I'm thinking it's a must!

Must go look at the book. Tha's one I haven't done. Love the fabric-I think I have a jelly roll or two! I had a temper tantrum at Sweet Home last week because I missed the Fresh jelly roll by Moda only to come home and find I already bought it!

I love those blocks, Gretchen! Look forward to the rest (O: I've never bought a jelly role yet. Think I should do that one day!

Hey, those blocks are pretty, including the little woodgrain fabric. What could be better than spending the evening quilting...
