What’s on the design wall today?

Konda Luckau of Moose on the Porch Quilts has organized a sew-along.  The project is a sampler quilt made out of a jelly roll.  Not the pastry.  A jelly roll is a collection of fabric strips 2 1/2 inches wide by 36 inches long.  The strips are then rolled up in a circle and tied with a ribbon which makes them look like a jelly roll – hence the name.  I happen to have a jelly roll that has been sitting in a drawer for a few months.  It is from the fabric line called Objects of Desire (shoes).  I bought it to make something for my oldest daughter who loves shoes.  I haven’t been able to decide what to make out of it, so this is a perfect project.  12 designers have each selected one block to put in the quilt.  This is the first block.  You can see the participants work on Flickr at www.flickr.com/groups/1343277@N20
