National Sewing Month ideas: start with a Jelly Roll (and a sale)

We’re kicking off National Sewing Month by celebrating a NEW national day of sewing: National Sew a Jelly Roll Day!

National Sew a Jelly Roll Day

On Saturday, September 16, quilters around the country will unfurl their Jelly Rolls, sew them together, and create beautiful strippy and scrappy quilts—just for the joy of it!

It’s the perfect time to open that Jelly Roll you’ve been saving for a special quilt. Why? Because today you can save BIG on books jam-packed with Jelly Roll fun—SAVE 40% RIGHT NOW! Whoo-hoo!

Peruse patterns from the five books below—pick a project, pair it with a Jelly Roll, and let’s get this patchwork party started!

CHOICE #3: Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson

CHOICE #4: Scrap-Basket Beauties by Kim Brackett

Star Blossoms Jelly Roll quilt
Star Blossoms is filled with strips from several fabric collections from the same designer. If you have a favorite designer, do the same to make a quilt with a designer “signature” (although assorted strips would be just as charming).
