Which came first – Project Jelly Roll or National Sew A Jelly Roll Day?
Both! While trying to think of how to celebrate the invention of the Jelly Roll, we decided that the best way to celebrate any birthday is with a big, fun-filled party. The invitation – that’s the Project Jelly Roll part of it, and the party itself – that’s National Sew A Jelly Roll Day.
The most important place to start is when – September 16, 2017. The third Saturday in September. Why September? The first Jelly Roll arrived at Moda in September, 2006 in anticipation of Fall Market. This is going to be an annual party so we picked the third Saturday instead of a specific day.
Project Jelly Roll is about everything related to the big day. It’s where you can find your invite to the party, the dress code and everything you might want or need to know about celebrating with us and Jelly Rolls.
How to participate… That’s the easiest part of all – you just have to take one Moda Jelly Roll and make something with it. You can make anything you want, and we’ll be here to help with ideas, tips and inspiration. You can celebrate on your own or with a group of your best quilty-friends. If you’re in a Quilt Guild or have a favorite quilt shop, there might already be a celebration planned. If there isn’t, they might just need someone to step in to organize it.
