Quilters Day Out

Yesterday my guild held a Quilters Day Out. We do this a couple of times a year as a social get together. Typically the organizers have a quilt planned for us to do but the participants don't have to if they'd prefer to work on their own project.

Our project yesterday was a simple mock log cabin that could be made using Jelly Rolls. I don't usually buy Jelly Rolls, but purchased this one by Moda specifically for the class. The colors are fun, but they didn't work out quite right for the pattern. We had samples of a number of different layouts for our blocks and the layout I liked best just didn't work because I didn't have enough lights for a good contrast. I did find one layout that will work and will end up with quite a bright quilt.

It was a fun day and it's always good to spend time with quilting friends.

I bought the 4x4 blocks of that pack and would have bought FQs if they had had them. It is a nice grouping. I like the idea of buying a Jelly Roll for a class. Quick way to get started.
