Once upon a time….
Well, it SEEMS that long ago that Moda Fabrics and Martingale Publishing sent out a call to Moda’s Bake Shop “Chefs” to submit quilt patterns using Moda Jelly Roll® strips. As it happened, I had one in hand, and I had made the prototype with one of Moda’s collections, so I submitted it, and it was accepted!
My pattern, one of a dozen in the newly-published Rolling Along, is called “Storm Warning”, and the sample was made with a Jelly Roll of Minnick & Simpson’s “Northport” collection. The sashing and borders are Basic Grey’s “Grunge” basic in Peacoat Blue.
My quilt guild holds a weekend retreat on Sew a Jelly Roll Day each September, and several of my friends tested the pattern. I thought you’d like to see the pattern in different colorways:
Annette used 2.5″ strips from her stash, and added another row of blocks to make her quilt larger. (Note: A Jelly Roll only gives you enough strips to make the lap size in the book)
Martingale Publishing recently posted a trunk show video featuring all the quilts in the book:
After watching the video, I’m sure you’ll want the book, so, I’m giving away three copies. Leave a comment on this blog post for one entry. Tell me which quilt you would make FIRST. No extra credit for picking mine. ;0)
There will also be giveaways on my Instagram and Facebook pages. Just follow the links, and if you want to follow my blog and/or IG and FB accounts, that would be lovely, too! All winners will be chosen by random drawing on Wednesday evening, June 22.
Rolling Along is the latest in a series of Moda Bake Shop books, edited by Lissa Alexander and published by Martingale Publishing. Look for them at your favorite local quilt shops. If you don’t see them, be sure to ask for them!
