    Angry Forgot What I Was Doing With A Layer Cake and Jelly Roll

    I finally got my mojo going again at the sewing machine by doing a donation quilt. As I was going through my stuff I came across a Moda Layer Cake & matching Jelly Roll. I had cut the layer cake into two different sizes plus use strips of the Jelly Roll and had 5 hand pieced blocks done but for the life of me I can't remember what pattern (if any) I was following. I laid the 5 blocks out and they do not go together at all so looks like I may do mug rugs out of them. Pitiful!

    Post a photo and someone will probably recognize the pattern.

    Do any of these look familiar??

    Ok, here are the quilt blocks

    The blocks are from a matching layer cake and coordinating jelly roll. They just don't look good together. Sorry the photo is upside down again.

    Try turning every other block so the 3 vertical stripes are horizontal.
    See what I mean? Don't know the pattern but I'm sure it will be nice when
    it's done.

    Maybe some variation on a rail fence or turning twenty?

    Since the layer cake and matching jelly roll are from Moda, check The Moda website for its free patterns. You may find some patterns that fit your criteria. Good luck!

    When I start any project, I copy the pattern of what I am making and keep it with the fabric already cut. That way I always know what I am doing. Good luck.

    I have had that happen many times before I started to do a little organization. Now when I order fabric I put a label on it as to what project it is for.

    I do that also. I'll start a project then want to do something else. So I'll put it in a bin where it usually stays. Sometimes the pattern is with it & sometimes it isn't. I told myself that this winter I am going to finish some of it.
