Saturday Stuff

Just taking a break to give you a peek of what I'm working on today -- a new project using a Portobello Market Jelly Roll. Chain-piecing like crazy!

Have you seen the new That Patchwork Place 2010 calendar? It was released in August and I forgot to tell you. Oops. It features 12 quilts from different books published by That Patchwork Place, and includes the instructions for each. And my quilt, Past and Present, appears in September!


You'll probably recognize at least some of the quilts on the back cover. Wouldn't it be fun to make one of these every month?

Okay, back to work now. Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

I am also anxious to see what you are making with your jelly roll. I have the Blessings jelly roll and just can't seem to land on a plan but I really want to start a machine pieced project.
