Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes

>> Friday, October 2, 2009

And no I'm not talking about food--I'm talking about fabric, of course! In case you don't know, a jelly roll is a set of 2 1/2 inch wide by 44 inch long strips of fabric all cut from a single fabric line and then rolled up sweet-roll style--all ready for you to use for your next scrappy quilt project.

A layer cake is similar, except you get a stack of 10 inch squares rather than a roll of 2 1/2 inch strips. The thing I love about jelly rolls, layer cakes, sweet rolls, turnovers, charm packs, (yes, I'm still talking about fabric) is that you get a little sample of each piece of fabric in a whole line without having to buy a lot of yardage.

Now that you've had your fabric lesson for the day, here's the reason I'm posting:

Lila Tueller is hosting a generous giveaway at her blog. She is a fabric and pattern designer, and I absolutely love her work! Her newest fabric line is called "Eden", and she is giving away a layer cake, jelly roll, and a couple of patterns. Go check out her blog to enter the contest and to get some fun ideas and see some gorgeous fabric! Here's a sneak peek of "Eden".

About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
