On April 27, I will be giving a lecture/trunk show for the Pensacola Quilters Guild using quilts from my new book, all made from 2 1/2" strips. Even saying it makes my knees a little shaky! I'm not nervous at all about one part of the presentation, though. Lissa sent me a package with the most wonderful variety of Moda Jelly Rolls that I'll be giving away as door prizes! The picture (below) doesn't come close to representing the beauty and quality of these fabrics. I want to unroll all of the bundles and play with the fabrics, but experience has taught me that I can't roll them back up as neatly as the smart people at Moda. (I'd really like to know how they do that.)
Anyway, here's a picture of the Jelly Rolls: Nostalgia by April Cornell, Gypsy Rose by Fig Tree Quilts, Objects of Desire by Sandy Gervais, and Urban Couture by Basic Grey.
Aren't they gorgeous? If you can't make it to the meeting, don't worry -- I'll be saving one of these for a special blog give-away. Thank you so much, Lissa. I hope the big guys at Moda know how lucky they are to have you on their team!
