January Project Updates

Dear Jane Updates

I have been a victim of the quilting doldrums as of late. Since completing my last blocks I have received three (3) of my monthly block kits. In all honesty, it was the applique blocks that did me in. But I'm back at it. After viewing many videos on reverse applique and getting my self re-grouped, I'm ready to get back at it. No more applique anxiety.

Tweet For Two Quilt Kit

My applique anxiety made think about motivation. I needed another project to help keep me quilting. So to the internet I went. ordered a cute little quilt kit from Stitchin' Heaven. This "back to basics" kit should be a quick cut and sew. And it was even a great price in the value kits. Watch for progress reports and a complete review of the kit when it is complete.

Jelly Roll Jam

I was watching DVR'd sessions of Quilt In A Day, Sewing With Nancy and other sewing related shows. Several had quick and easy Jelly Roll Projects. While I've seen the neatly rolled fabric in the store, magazines and the like, I had not given in, until today. Off to the Fat Quarter Shoponline store I go. There a sooooo many jelly rolls, I didn't know what to choose. I'm a very monochromatic quilter. I like things to Ba-lennnnnnd. I don't often pick brights or anything that screams, I'm a girl. So going outside my comfort zone, I ordered a bright little roll. Mixed Bag Jelly Roll by Moda
I hopped over to the free pattern, downloaded and now I wait. You can download a copy HERE.

Stop back for project updates and of course reviews of the Tweet for Two Quilt Kit and Jelly Roll Jam Pattern. Happy Stitching!
