These little cases have changed my mind about Jelly Rolls…I love having a little bit of every fabric of a line of fabric…and precuts enable this to happen…Jelly Rolls are awesome for strip quilts, mini quilts and you can make a lot of regular size blocks out of a jelly roll…When I get a precut I starch it until its totally wet and then hang them to dry…and do you know what? It does not shrink width wise…it does a little on the length but not the width..so NOW I want to sew with Jelly rolls..I have made this quilt, LOST MITTENS earlier this year…It was made from two jelly rolls and everything has a 2 1/2″ width except the last logs…I plan on making a bunch of quilts like this with different motifs on them…
I’m will be doing a table runner out of this Lakeside Gatherings Jelly roll next its all starched and ready to sew when I am ready it is safe in its fabric box! We have purchased a bunch of Lakeside Jelly rolls from Moda at special price and we can sell them to you for only $28.oo they are reg $39.99, so that is a nice discount, If you want to order the Lakeside Jelly roll for $28 click here JELLY ROLL…it is also shown in the strip box above.
See how I get sidetracked, this happens a lot to me lately… Back to the strip box… I love how the fuzz that precuts make are contained in this case and not all over my studio or on my shirt! I also think it would be great to store 2 1/2″ squares too so not only strips…You can order 1 strip case at 20% off, for $11.20 reg.$14…but I know you have more than 1 jellyroll!!! So 2 are $21 and three are 31.50…I know some of you have more than three but I’m not going to push it…You can do that on your own!!! Click here to order STRIP CASE. The 11.99 price will show up in your shopping cart…and remember to HOLD in comments if you want us to ship at the end…I remind you because if your like me I always forget to put the savings codes in when I order online…and please leave a comment up by clicking up at the top of this post if you want win a strip case!
I so love reading your comments everyday…I find out lots of things about you…and that is important to me. Lots of you have loved ones not able to come home or that are serving and they are coming home!… I have a nephew Tyler stationed at Fort Hood and he is coming home!… but then I also have a son Lance in Heaven who is never coming home again, so we all have people we love who cannot be with us…that is why we have each other and our stitching passion.
I also find out things like the Day 10 Valdani Books suddenly disappeared from the website at about 2am this morning??? They are back on now so if you didn’t get to place your order you can now.
Just a note about DAY 11-pinbowls..
Here is a message I got regarding the magnetic pin bowls…
I was just reading your blog this morning about your sew cute magnetic bowls. You were warning people to keep them away from computerized machines. I think that is a thing of the past, at least it is for Viking. My Viking Designer Diamond machine came out in 2008 & Viking says it would have to be a magnet to lift up a Volkswagen before it might hurt the machine! Lol I suggest you tell people to check with their machines manufacturer. This might help you to sell more bowls if people knew it was safe, 🙂 LOVE your patterns & your blog!
