Do you work with jellyrolls very often? I use one every now and then and I like them. You get a long strip of fabric that is 2 1/2 inches wide for every fabric in a family of fabric. I'm amazed by what I can make with those strips. I usually complain a little when I work with jellyrolls, how do I account for those little clipped points on each side and those clipped edges usually produce fuzz that floats around my sewing table. I'm not complaining about those clipped edges anymore, this is what a jellyroll use to look like, when they were cut with a straight edge.
This is a jellyroll of Roman Holiday by 3 Sisters for Moda, I'm not sure when that family of fabric was released, but I think it was at least 5 years ago. By the looks of this roll you would think I've been carrying it around in my purse for 5 years, but it has just been molting in a bin in my sewing room closet. I figured I better use this roll for a quilt before it was just a useless ball of thread.
And this is what I'm going to make with that fabric.
Vintage Holiday by Camille Rosekelly for thimble blossoms. I've seen these adorable ornament blocks pop up all over blogland and thought I would join in the fun. That Roman Holiday jellyroll is the only holiday fabric have in my stash, that sure cut down on the fabric drama for this project.
I think the blocks in the pattern finish at 9 inches, I'm shrinking mine down to 6 inches.
The blocks are easy and they go fast, the perfect little project to squeeze in between all the holiday hoopla. I just love working on a holiday project during the holidays.
