A Late Birthday Treat

For my birthday in June, I received a gift card to Amazon.com. I've been waiting for just the right item to use my valued gift card. I even lost the gift card for a day or two so I decided that it was time to buy something. I searched through the new fictions titles and the quilting books. When I discovered that the Jelly Roll Book folks had a new book, I knew that was what I would order. I don't like to purchase a quilting book sight unseen, but I took a chance on this one. I'm pleased with the book. There are at least two or three quilts that I would like to make. The best thing is that I didn't feel that I had to use special Moda pre-cuts for these projects. I felt like I could use some of my existing fabric and add to it with yardage from my favorite quilt shop, Sweet Home. I'm thinking that Melisa has this book on order. She stocks the other two books by these same designers. Make a trip to her shop or visit her online. You will be happy that you did.
