Did you know tomorrow is National Sew a Jelly Roll day? Stephanie from my HeartStrings group shared that nugget so my plans changed a bit today. Instead of doing some assembly AND binding, I’m trying to get the Monkey Wrench blocks together so I can sew along this weekend.
I knew I had some Autumn Jelly Rolls from Connecting Threads in a bin somewhere … and bonus … look at the border fabrics I found with them.
I don’t usually use a border on my Windmill quilts but I will on this one. I quickly drew it out this afternoon. Of course the blocks will be scrappier than shown … Not sure which border I’ll choose yet. I’ll make the blocks first and then decide.
So all I needed to get ready to sew this weekend was a background fabric …. Yep, the ones I wanted to choose from were in the bottom two bins but Keith came downstairs and moved the bins around so I could look through them.
Are YOU going to sew a Jelly Roll quilt this weekend?
