On A Roll

(giveaway closed)

Available now, stock # B1498

Moda Jelly Rolls have been around since 2008 and I can’t believe how many wonderful projects, tools, notions, patterns, and books have been created based on the 2 1/2″ strip. I will never forget the first time I used a jelly roll. After working a full day at the greatest job ever, I went home, opened a jelly roll and started sewing. So theraoutic!

The Moda All-Stars have done it again, each quilt is based on a jelly roll. Some of the quilts have additional fabrics added, some of the quilts are appliqued. There is something for everyone, 16 quilts all in all shapes and sizes sure to inspire.

Of course I’d like to make all the quilts but the one that I most want to do now is Sweet Butterfly. I am looking for a special pattern for special girl and this looks perfect.

It’s a toss up between Apricot Jelly and Not Too Sweet! Actually that’s one of the reasons I like apricot jelly, it’s not too sweet. (I crack myself up) thanks for fun give away Lissa.

How super cool would it be to have a jar big enough to hold mini quilts or enough mini quilts to even fit into the jar! That is what I am going for.

Sheryl shared many tips on finishing the mini quilts and I can’t wait to get finished to try some of them out.

The Quiltalong starts on March 25th and all you have to do is make 4 mini blocks a week. To find out more details, click here.

Be sure to use the hashtag #QuirkyLittleQuiltsQAL when you post about your progress on Facebook and Instagram. I can’t wait to see what you create!

The Happiness Project

Do you journal? I always have the best intentions but that does not get me very far. I have grand dreams of leaving elloquent books filled with wisdom and insight on life. There would be pages full of funny stories, copies of family recipes and historic happenings of the day.
WAKE UP! My abridged version of this is the Happiness Project journal. It is a small 5 year journal with about 3 lines per day. Just enough to jot a sentence or two of gratitude, major family events, a quote that caught my eye or a few words of happiness.
I am on to my second 5 year journal and will be finishing it up in the year 2020. Between these journals and my hot mess of pictures stored on google my family can enjoy a zany look into my mind!

I wanted to share some of the tips from Gretchen Rubin as great reflection and daily inspiration.  Enjoy!!

 

Twelve Personal Commandments

Be Gretchen.

Let it go.

Act the way I want to feel.

Do it now.

Be polite and be fair.

Enjoy the process.

Spend out.

Identify the problem.

Lighten up.

Do what ought to be done.

No calculation.

There is only love.

A Happiness Manifesto

To be happy, you need to consider feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right, in an atmosphere of growth.

One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy; One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.

The days are long, but the years are short.

You’re not happy unless you think you’re happy.

Your body matters.

Happiness is other people.

Think about yourself so you can forget yourself.

“It is easy to be heavy: hard to be light.”—G. K. Chesterton

What’s fun for other people may not be fun for you, and vice versa.

Best is good, better is best.

Outer order contributes to inner calm.

Happiness comes not from having more, not from having less, but from wanting what you have.

You can choose what you do, but you can’t choose what you like to do.

“There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy.” —Robert Louis Stevenson

You manage what you measure.

 

I would love to hear what is some of your favorite books.
