Celebrate With Me One Last Time! DS Quilts Jelly Roll Giveaway!

I can't believe how much I've been enjoying my blogiversary giveaway.  I come home from work and race to the computer to see the comments folks have left.  I've discovered some way-fun new-to-me blogs, and really enjoyed finding out what projects everyone is working on.  Everyone is so busy and it seems like most people are like me - several projects going at once.

So fun!  It has really brightened the last few weeks.

Yesterday, I asked for input about what to do for this last giveaway for my blogiversary month.  Many of you were very kind and said that all the choices were great (including my homemade ones), and you couldn't decide.  The rest were pretty much unanimously in favor of more DS Quilts fabric. Well, have I got a treat for you!



My friends at Westwood Acres have generously agreed to donate a DS Quilts Jelly Roll to help me celebrate this final week of my blogiversary.  I haven't got all the details yet, but I know that it will contain 2-1/2 inch strips of all of the DS Quilts prints.  I'm so excited!  I want to win it myself.  Thanks Westwood Acres for helping me celebrate!  Westwood Acres has a few FQ sets and jelly rolls left to sell, so if you're dying for this DS Quilts fabric, head on over.



EDIT:  I just found out that this jelly roll includes TWO! strips of each fabric  for a total of 42 strips!  Generous, huh?

So, how do you enter to win all this DS yumminess, you ask?  Well, I'm glad you asked.


1.  Leave me a comment and tell me what you would make with this beautiful jelly roll.  If you have a favorite jelly roll tute on the web, please let me know.

2.  Be sure you're a follower, and leave a comment to let me know.

3.  Invite a friend to be a follower and leave a comment to let me know that you did.  If they become a follower too, you will get a 4th chance to win. 

EDIT:  Someone commented that I don't have an end date here, and I totally forgot.  This giveaway ends Thursday, April 28 at midnight.

And now, (drum roll please!) for the winner of last week's giveaway, which was a selection of 7 fat quarters of the new DS Quilts Picnic and Fairgrounds fabric...

  5. I have never used a jelly roll before so I am not sure what I would use it for. The colors look like they would make a really nice table runner, OR some really nice mug rugs, OR..... The possibilities are boundless! :)

  6. I think a jellyroll is perfect for a strippy table runner! These colors would be amazing on a table!

  7. I just saw your post on the 3 x 6 flickr group. I think I might make a quilt top from my "Jelly Roll Quilts" quilting book. This book has been on my shelf for a couple of years and I still haven't made anything from it. Congrats on your blogiversary.

  44. fun, fun, fun! I love this line so much that I think I would have to use every spare piece of fabric in that jelly roll. That means, a strippy quilt of some type. There's one in the Moda Bake Shop that has the rows offset. I think that would be gorgeous with a solid Kona.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Happy Blogiversary!

    What would I do with that jelly roll? HAVE FUN! I'm thinking that a simple quilt would work the best, I forget the name of it but it's similar to the rail fence block using 5 strips. it would create a wonderfully scrappy look. And I would use it in my bedroom! I love cheeriness in the morning.

    Thanks so much for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Brand new follower here, glad to have "met" you.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I am not sure what I would make...hmmmm, maybe some hexagons, or a mug rug.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have never used a jelly roll or any precuts, but Lynne of Lily's Quilts seems to have some great ideas that I'd like to try. Such as her Little Big George. I think that making a quilt of those blocks could be a lot of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  73. i would make some bright cushions, or maybe use them as legs and arms for little creatures...

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm not sure, probably a mixture of patchwork bags, table mats and cushions.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think a strip quilt out of picnic and fairgrounds would look awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I would love to have a chance to win these beautiful fabrics...I don't have any yet as my Joann's never got any! I would definitely make a quilt of some sort!

    and another at

    http://new2quilting.blogspot.com/2011/04/four-in-nine-patch-quilt-complete.html

    The colors in your giveaway are so much "fresher" than the ones I used. Mine look so old fashioned. But I still love it.

    And now that I have a new sewing machine I would also machine quilt the quilt instead of knotting it. Sooooo much better!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I would love to win this jelly roll, and use it to create a strip quilt with ruffles. {or course I can't find the tutorial right now that I want to use, but will e-mail it to you when I find it). Just think crib size with strips and a ruffled fabric strip over a matching strip.

    DS fabrics, gorgeous, smart, ageless, timeless, what is there not to love!Enjoy you Blogoversary, and may there be many more!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wow, I would love to win this jelly rolly. HOnestly, I would probably hoard it, but eventually I would make something I'm sure!

    ReplyDelete
  107. The question should be what would I NOT make with a jelly roll?:) To be truthful...I have purchased 3 jellyrolls since I started quilting two years ago and I haven't busted into them because they are so pretty just sitting on my shelf!:)
    But I have cut out tons on 2 1/2" strips and I love to make the rail fence, log cabin, bentos and 9 patch or just sew strips together and cut them up again and sew them back again and see what happens!:)
    Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I just received the coolest jellyroll quilts book as a birthday gift from a friend, and am excited to try out some of those patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I would like to make a picnic quilt. The colors are so cheerful. Thanks for the happy giveaway!

  110. I would either make a handbag or pillow case. If most of the strips are light colors, then it will definitely be a pillow case.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I follow your lovely blog :) These are fun prints, I would make a baby quilt, or maybe some travel size pillowcases.
