Whew! What a weekend!
These were some of the ladies at Not Your Mama’s Quilt Store in McKinney, Texas. That’s Miss Tatum in the upper-left – we think she’s adorable.
Thank you! That’s the first best place to start. Thank. YOU.
If you went to their favorite quilt shop to sew, visit and/or shop – thank you! If you’re a shop owner and you held a National Sew A Jelly Roll Day event for your best friends – thank you! If you sewed along with us – with friends, your guild, with beloved critters and family or by your-lovely-self – thank you. We love you!
But we have to ask… did you do it? Did you rip the plastic off and quickly unroll a new, un-opened Jelly Roll?
A few of you said you would… but did you actually do it? (We know how hard it is so… we’re not judging. I promise!)
Did you start a new project? Book or pattern? Did you race?
More importantly, did you finish what you started?
We’re asking because we want you to finish so… we’re having a National Sew A Jelly Roll Day UFO Contest!
To enter, post a picture to Instagram or Facebook with both of these hashtags – #projectjellyroll and #projectjellyrollUFO
There are two parts to enter –
- First, post by Midnight, October 1st with your current status. Start your post/comment with UFO Status.
- Second, post your finished quilt top by Midnight, October 22nd. Yes, quilt tops will suffice. Start your post/comment with UFO Finish.
- And… there’s one more option! If you finished your quilt top this past weekend, finish it with quilting and binding to entry. Start that post/comment with UFO Final!
- And if you’re still a WIP and finish your quilt top, and get it quilted and bound by the 22nd, post a picture for an extra entry.
I know… there are a lot of steps but we really want you to finish your Jelly Roll quilt. Why? Because finishes are fun! And so we can send you something new to sew – a new Jelly Roll. (And probably another goodie or two… just saying.)
Two winners will be chosen at random from the pool of entries marked Finish and Final – two on Facebook and two on Instagram.
Are you in?
In the immortal words of Larry the Cable Guy… “Git ‘er done!”
