I decided to join the fun and participate in the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along. The completed blocks are available to view on Flickr and it’s great fun to see what everyone else has come up with. There are 300 members right now. That’s a lot of creative energy all directed at the same task.I’m using scraps as my local Spotlight has exactly one variety of jelly roll, the fabric is wafer thin, I don’t like it much and it’s just under $30. That means more cutting, which is a pain, but there really wasn’t any alternative.
My blocks are consistently finishing at 12 inches, not the 12 1/2 they’re supposed to be. Seems my cutting is too fine and my seams aren’t scant enough.
I have decided to see the positive and say, “Well, at least I’m consistent,” and just keep going. I can make up the difference by cutting my sashing a little wider.
