Yummy jelly rolls

I have some new pics to share, if only Blogger will cooperate! Is it me, or is Blogger unbearably slow to upload pictures?

This is a jelly roll, not the edible kind that with all those delicious sugary calories. This one will definitely not be added to my hips! Jelly rolls are the name given to 2 1/2" cuts of all the fabrics in a fabric line, this one being called Spring Fling. I think there are 40 fabric prints in total. Isn't it gorgeous! This is going to be used in the quilt class I signed up for tomorrow, for a pattern called Twisted Log Cabin. Marg and I saw saw samples of these at our last quilt block meeting and couldn't resist. Tomorrow is a full day class and in 2 weeks, we finish up with a 1/2 day class. What a great reason to take the day off work.


Next up is my latest finished sock. And I've got to hurry up and finish the other one before Nancy entices me into some new start at the Knitting Frolic Day she is tempting me with. She knows my weaknesses!



And finally my Sampler Gameboard which I managed to pick up this weekend while at a stitching gathering at Marj's house. I got 2 houses, one motif, and some lettering finished up as of Sunday night. Tonight I'll have to get my things together for the class tomorrow! Can't wait....

Hi Wendy,

I hope you enjoy your class. The sock looks so pretty and that jelly roll rivals any bowl of jelly beans for pretty colors. Have a great week.

Margaret said...

Looks yummy and certainly not too fattening. Your class sounds like it will be great fun.

Great progress on your GB. I know it's a little early but how will you finish this piece?

Have a good week.

You had a little bit of everything in your blog today. The quilt fabrics are lovely, as are the colors of the sock. In addition, your gameboard is progressing nicely. You've been very productive. Have fun at the quilt class, I had a lot of fun at the one I took.

That jelly roll is sucking me in.........and me not even a quilter yet, lol..

I was looking for garnstudio yarn today and came across a site that had socks and slipper patterns and thought......'oooh, maybe I should try to knit some slippers.....or maybe some snazzy socks' hehehe.

I'm my own worst enemy!

Lili said...

Your Gameboard is very tempting, Wendy!...
It's nice to see a pic of you, you look great on it!
Thank you for leaving a kind message on my blog, this really touched me.
I just love this roll of fabric and I intend to give a try at quilting, just don't see which one to try first yet... Log cabin? Squares? Decisions...
Take care.
