More Jam?

The best thing to do with a jelly roll ?……………. add more jam! I purchased this gorgeous 1930’s repro Moda, Chloe’s Closet jellyroll at an Oast Quilters meeting in Canterbury.


It was so beautiful I couldn’t resist it.

I added in a few other  ’30’s style prints I’d been collecting and selected some more red “jelly/jam” for contrast.


There’s some of that fab Riley Blake print I picked up in Bath in there too (top and bottom rows).


A little trip to my local quilt shop, Emporia in Ashford for the blue binding and voila!

April issue of Popular Patchwork magazine will be in the shops in the UK on Monday 9th March (subscriptions should be out this week). The instructions on how to make this quilt are inside, along with the final part of the Sew Happy Quilt Along and some of the group quilt tops made by Jo Blox. Check out the forum on their website to see more QAL pictures too 🙂

    Thanks Doreen, sometimes it’s best to keep things simple and just enjoy the fabrics 🙂

    I have one of these Chloe’s Closet vintage look jelly rolls and I haven’t decided how best to use it yet. I like to just get it out from time to time and look at it. I love the design of your quilt, it really complements the fabric and looks like you have had it forever.

      It must be the softness of the colours that make it look used, funny how having it forever is a good thing with quilts – enjoy your jellyroll 🙂

    I always admire such beautiful corners, but I especially love the way those bright red squares add such a spark to the pastels!

      You can’t beat a scarlet polka dot for a bit of “pop”!
      Thanks for your kind words ladies 🙂

    I wouldn’t have been able to resist either but the fabric would have gone on display in my home, what you have created must have took hours!

      It didn’t take too long Mrs Fox, you’d have needed larger pieces for a dress!

        Or just make a patch work dress! 👗
