Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild hosted a Sewing Day at Seminole Sampler Quilt Shop (Thanks Linda for letting us use your shop to sew, and thank you to the Seminole Staff who were so nice to us while we were there!) I decided to make a Jelly Roll Quilt ~ Have you heard of the Jelly Roll Race Quilt Craze? Well the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and the DC Modern Guild are getting together on July 7th to have a Jelly Roll Quilt Race, but alas I will be out of town that day, so I used our Sewing Day to try one out for myself. You can check out the BMQG Blog for more info on the Great Jelly Roll Quilt Race and see pictures of other examples of Jelly Roll Race Quilts too!
Fold the strip set in half again (right sides together) and repeat the process of sewing down one long seam. Each time you do this your long seam will get shorter, so it sews up pretty fast. Again, when you approach the end, flatten and finger press the fold then cut it with scissors, and continue stitching to the end.
Enjoy the day!
