Jelly Roll Jam II Quilt...

Yesterday I chose the fabric I'll be using for our retreat group project.
All I had to do was go shopping in the studio! (I have a boat-load few jelly
rolls from which to choose.) I thought it might be fun to use this colorway
from Minick & Simpson's Midwinter Reds. It's a Moda fabric, of course.
 
If you're interested in seeing what the whole collection looks like (before I
make my Jelly Roll Jam II quilt, click this link to see every, luscious fabric!
I'm considering this polka dot fabric for the backing, but I won't make my
final decision until the quilt top is done. I may end up not using the tans at all.
The pattern (free from The Fat Quarter Shop - with a link below) only calls for
one jelly roll to create a 36 1/2" x 38 1/2" quilt. I'm planning to make a large 
one, using two jelly rolls. I'll see how many blocks I can make without the tans.
If you'd like to make your own Jelly Roll Jam II quilt, let me know. I think it
would be fun to share all the images in a future blog post. I'll make my quilt
top at the retreat, but if you want to make one, too, I'll set up a Flickr page.

I'm also embedding the Fat Quarter shop video tutorial for this quilt
into this post for you. Grab a cuppa and relax while you watch it!

Enjoy! More to come on this project after the retreat...
