    What to do with 2 gorgeous jelly rolls?

    I have 2 beautiful jelly rolls of Moda Etchings and I am at a loss of what to make.
    I don;t have anything in my stash to add to it, I was thinking either of a keyhole quilt or tube quilt.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks a bunch

    I made a zig zag quilt from 2 jelly rolls - do you have a good mix of light and dark fabrics in your rolls? Or you could separate by color.

    I used this tute: http://beesquarefabrics.blogspot.com...t-without.html

    I am working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt that uses jelly rolls called Boxy Stars and I like the way it is turning out. Check out her site for the patterns.

    I have done the boxy stars a couple of times - I love that pattern. Google jelly roll patterns - there are a ton of them out there - have fun.

    I found the pattern. I love it! I can't tell from the instructions, however, how many jelly rolls it takes. I suppose it depends on what size quilt you want. Can you get a quilt out of 1 jelly roll?

    Thanks for all of the suggestions! I love that zig zag quilt - just beautiful!

    I finally made a decision - forgot that I had the Scrap Basket Sensations book - I think I'll try the Blessings from Quilt Hollow. Should be interesting to see how it turns out since it is featured in more traditional fabrics than the moda ethings line. But that should make interesting for me to do.

    This will be the first quilt that I make to keep. I am still new to do this quilting (about a year now) and so far everything I have made has been gifted. lol...2012 is going to be about making quilts for my house!

    Yes, black & whites, or red & blue, or blues & greens, or pinks & tans.... I keep dreaming up variations, I'll have to live to 125 years old to make all the quilts I want!

    Beautiful quilt Peggi.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
