Jelly Roll Sampler

Our next door neighbour is having a garage sale this morning so it is essential that Chloe monitor and keep an eye on things. She'll be able to tell us at the end of the day how many cars dropped by....

I have laid out my Jelly Roll sampler and have decided to go with a sashing layout as shown on Moose on the Porch quilts.

I am going to use cornerstone blocks in each corner of the sashing. I am going to use a variety of the fabric rather then just one fabric in order to use up some of my scraps.

 I won a Jelly Roll and Layer Cake of Rural Jardin from Kelly, our fearless leader of the Charming Girls Quilt Club a few months ago and this is what I used to make my Jelly Roll Sampler. I ordered the sashing and border fabric this morning from Kelly's Cotton Charm Quilts, and to my delight they were on sale!
I won't receive the sashing and border fabric for about 2 weeks so will continue on my quest to finish projects and sew more blocks for my king size quilt.
Enjoy your weekend!

Chloe on patrol....LOL I love it...

Ooh, your jelly roll sampler is going to be GREAT. I, too, am using a simple sashing technique to put it together. I look forward to yours.
