**For anyone just joining us, welcome! Come and play! Grab a jelly roll and play catch up. Let me clarify a little upfront:
1) There isn't an email list to remind you when the blocks are available. You can sign up to be notified when my blog is updated. I have posted instructions HERE.
2) All you need to do now is make your block and post it onto our Flickr group HERE. If you need help, try THIS post.
3) You can always check this post for the new blocks, but they are first listed as a post on my blog, then I add that link at the bottom of this post.
I am excited to introduce something that I have had in the works for a little while now:
A Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along!
From March 1 to August 2, every other Monday, instructions for a new 12" block will be posted. All of the blocks will be made from jelly roll strips and yardage.
Each block will be designed by a different person. Every two weeks there will be a guest blogger on my blog introducing herself and her block. At the end, you will have made a fun quilt 58" x 72."
Of course, all along the way there will be prizes for those who complete the blocks. Here is a picture of the quilt:
I will fill it in as we go with the blocks that we make.
Here's the nitty gritty:
Fabric Requirements --
1 jelly roll
2 yards background and sashing fabric
1 1/2 yards outer border fabric
2/3 yard binding fabric
3 3/4 yards backing fabric
Grab a jelly roll and some background fabric and let's get started!
The first drawing will be on March 1 when I post the first block. To enter this drawing, comment on this post that you want to join us and what fabric line you are thinking about making it in.
P.S. Scrappy is absolutely fine too. This quilt would make a great stash buster project.
P.P.S. I am making mine out of Attitude Girls by Mary Engelbreit for Moda.
The second drawing will be on March 15 when the first guest blogger posts the second block. Anyone who has made a block and posted it on a flickr site: (http://www.flickr.com/groups/1343277@N20/) will be entered in the drawing.
There will be another drawing each time block instructions are posted. Anyone who posts a picture of a new block since the last drawing will be entered in the next drawing. The block that you post a picture of doesn't have to be just the previous block. It can be for any of the previous blocks that you haven't posted yet.
