Discovery



If you read my blog you know I truly love the Jelly Roll Quilts book and the followup book, Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by the Mother/daughter team Pam and Nicky Lintott. Well I headed off to Borders last Friday to look for another book, 40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts for another project I signed up for. Didn't find that book, but looky what just hit the shelves! Apparently the authors had 'authored' ~yuck, yuck!~ a jelly roll competition and the new book features the winning designs! Number one, I had not heard of this contest (not that I would have entered but still...) and Number two, I had no idea they had a new book coming out, and I had a 40% off coupon and $5.00 in Borders' Bucks to boot. So I got the new book for $10 and change! And it does not disappoint, a dozen new designs by a dozen creative people.

I also found a video about the challenge on youTube. Hope it works.



I hope you had an opportunity to check out the Schnibbles October Parade over at Sherri's and Sinta's blogs. Sinta somehow overlooked my Schnibbles so I was not included in the Parade. I was amazed by all the many different ways the pattern was interpreted.

Put all the qualifying names in a hat and drew Annette for the pillowcase kit, fat quarter and box of tissues. You need to email me your address. Thanks to all who entered and thank you for visiting!

Glad to know there are other quilters who buy books the way I do...just because. Great find!
