    Bought A Jelly Roll..... Now What?

    I purchased a beautiful jelly roll in the summer and I really want to use it, but I haven't seen any inspiring patterns.

    The roll is

    I'd love to find a pattern that showcases the bright rainbow colors and wondered if anyone had any suggestions

    Thanks so much!

    That is a fabulous jelly roll! I can see why you bought it. It would've been hard to resist.

    It think this pattern would be gorgeous for it. Use black for the background and have stars in all the colors.

    Almost anything with black to give it an Amish look or use white as a background color and have a pretty bright quilt. I don't have any patterns in mind, but I have 2 jelly rolls that are solid colors and that's as far as I've gotten. I'm afraid to open them and use them because I love them so much. I take delight in just holding them.

    Remember, take your lint brush and brush both sides of your jelly roll really well before opening it. I usually use 4 strips of the lint brush to really get rid of all the lint. Makes all the difference in the world!!!!

    I have been looking for some fun quilts made with Jelly rolls as well. I won one at a local shop hop. Probably focus on something for it after the holidays. Right now, I have a bunch of quilts and table runners I am trying to get done.
