I bought a couple of jelly rolls awhile back....OK, more than a couple...but it is not my fault!! Green Fairy Quilts has these GREAT sales...how could I resist????
Anyway, I could hear this one calling!
It is Cabbages and Roses by Moda...
When I first started reading blogs, I came across this pattern at Cluck Cluck Sew.
I don't know what is is about this one that I just love, I am not even a "pink" person! Maybe I have a recessive Victorian Romantic gene hidden somewhere!!?? Anyway, I thought that I needed to start this one..it was a rainy cold day, and this looked soft and warm!
One thing I have learned with Jelly Rolls, is that is a good idea to take them outside and unroll them and give it a good shake! There are lots of little bits that end up all over everywhere!
So here are my first few blocks...I am really excited to see this one come together!!
I am also being pretty good at keeping up with organizing my scraps as I go.
I am still trying to cut them up when I finish cutting a project..
I have a "strips" box, a "2-1/2" squares" box, 5" squares, and a "crumb" box. I have also added a "pieces" box, for bits that are larger, but less than 1/4 yard. Not sure why, but it just seemed like a lot of work cutting them up, and may use them someday ?? or keep them for many years and then cut them up LOL
