I made mention of it in another post but I’ll officially open this up to one and all. I created two sets of twenty blocks. They are 9-patch in design and I think they are spectacular. The problem is, I am trying to come up with a decent design to showcase them. I’m looking for ideas and, if I use your idea, I’ll mail you a jelly roll left over from the days when I had a store.
So, break out your thinking caps and let me know what you think I should do with these 9-Patch blocks. There are 40 of them, total, with 20 of them red/white and 20 of them blue/white. Obviously I am thinking of another American Quilt. I’d rather do a Twin or Queen sized quilt.
And, for the prize? Let’s go with something for Christmas. It’s called, “Countdown to Christmas” and it’s by Moda – the leader in Jelly Rolls.
For those who don’t know what a Jelly Roll is but also read my blog, a Jelly Roll is 42 strips of fabric from a fabric line. Each strip is 2.5″ x 44″. There may be duplicates or they may all be different pieces. Typically, about a third or so have duplicates.
So, please be so kind as to give me an idea of what to do with my 9-Patch blocks and I’ll gift you the Christmas Countdown Jelly Roll. Because I am only now sitting down to type out this contest (and I’ve other projects to occupy my time), I’ll give everyone until Friday, October 12th to come up with a grand idea for me. Judging will be done over the weekend and next Monday, I’ll announce the winner. From there, we’ll figure out how to get the Jelly Roll to your doorstep.
