City's Edge Studio News - National Sew A Jelly Roll Day

Studio News

August 29, 2017


Jelly Roll -  Definded as:  a cylindrical cake with a sprial cross section, made from a flat sponge cake spread with a filling such as jam and rolled up.  And we love these beautiful confections - Yum!  "Who invented that??"  per wicipedia the founder is unclear.

In the world of quilting we take this word to a whole other meaning that only a select group can imagine and understand.  This beautiful roll of fabrics that you may have bought as early as September 2006 when the first Jelly Roll was introduced by MODA at Quilt Market.   
Jelly Roll - Defined as: a 40 piece collection of designer fabrics in 2 1/2" strips rolled up and tied with a tapemeasure.  "Eye Candy" for the Quilter and Sewist".   What can you do with this creation of perfection?  Set it on a shelf and decorate your sewing room for years to come to provide inspiration for future projects you have in your mind?  Or maybe...just maybe... you pulled it off the shelf and made a purse or tote bag, a skirt, pillow, chair cover, or dare I say .... "A QUILT"?  

No matter what you did with your jelly roll - we want to see your projects.  Please bring your projects to our National Sew A Jelly Roll Day for a "Roll Show" to inspire others who have not quite pulled them off the shelf yet.  Each project enters you in a drawing for a free  Jelly Roll.   Can't make it to the In-Store Event?  Post on our facebook your finished project made with a Jelly Roll, Like our Page and in comments,  #projectjellyroll to post to MODA.  There just might be a drawing for the those that go to Facebook for a......   JELLYROLL!

In addition to the "Roll Show"  we have seeveral other events for the day!
