Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes & Charms - OH MY!

Okay, how many of you knew that Moda is the one that captured the jelly roll, honey bun, layer cake , turnover, etc names? I thought that was universal - well now we know that Moda has the rights. Of course Charm Squares is open to one and all.


Lisa did an outstanding job of not only showing us what these items were, but how to use them. Oh my! - also to the patterns and books that are out there to make these collections of a line worth obtaining. You get a sample of the entire line of fabric, your cutting is "trimmed" up to basics and what you have to buy to coordinate with is a cinch. Okay, maybe a little pricey, but for those of us that can not tell if a color has a pink, gray or whatever mixed in so we think all blues are blue - what a life saver.



And what about that new Creative Grid 45 degreee double strip ruler?






Like many of us, Lisa has given away a lot of her quilts that would have made great examples, but she did not run short - Jan brought in a couple to help round out the possibilities for all of us.
Thank you Lisa for sharing your books, patterns and ideas. Betcha no one looks at Moda's Bake Shop offerings the same after this.
