Pam and Nicky Lintott have a book out called Jelly Roll Quilts that is fantastic. I absolutely love it. It has a lot of quick and cute quilts, and I can hardly wait to try out a couple of their patterns. Now I just need the jelly roll :) and a little bit of time.

Would love to see a rail fence quilt made out of these fabrics. Thanks for the giveaway! And have fun picking out your quilt pattern:)

bethany said...

How about a zig-zag quilt. I love the look of them and that fabric is to die for and would look really cool!!!

Janice said...

OOO I LOVE Wonderland!
You could make a string quilt like over at "Film in the Fridge!"

http://www.filminthefridge.com/2009/04/27/a-string-quilt-block-tutorial-paper-pieced-method/

That is what I am working on right now and it is SO much fun! There is even a flickr group just of string quilts!

DeeRoo said...

Wow..what a great give-away!

How about a table runner or sewing machine cover or I think those would look sooooo cute as a tote!!

Michelle said...

Oh man, I was gonna suggest what Janice suggested, a string quilt like Film in the Fridge. I am working on one of those now, fun but a little time consuming. Good luck with ideas!!

Jennifer said...

Oh I love Wonderland. So soft and pretty. This pattern is way cute!

Congrats on your 100th post! I suggest making one of those big pincusions listed on the Moda Bake Shop.

Anything that you'll be able to see everyday, a quilt or a table runner, pillow covers for your couch. I love this line and just got a fat quarter pack and am in the same spot as you.....what to use it for!!

Jen said...

Maybe a coin quilt? Anything that keeps those fun fabrics in the biggest possible pieces.

ladmquilter said...

I like the idea of a string quilt. I think that would look great.

Andrea said...

I think a simple 9 patch or 16 patch with white sashing to showcase the fabrics.... or use them for the wonky log cabin quilt along?

Congrats on 100 posts!

Victoria said...

I think that would make SUPER CUTE pillow covers!

Victoria said...

I blogged about your giveaway!

I'm still a beginner quilter myself, so I wouldn't have any idea what to suggest that would do justice to that gorgeous jelly roll! I also wanted to say that I LOVE moda fabrics, and that one is no exception!
I'm also glad to have found your blog, as I'm a procrastinator too, and can totally relate! I look forward to reading up on some of your older posts, as well as the new ones!

Laura said...

Crazy mom's stacked coin quilt. I love that fabric!

Sue Cahill said...

A simple log cabin would be quite effective.

Thanks for the chance to win some very lovely fabrics and congrats on reaching this milestone!

I used a jelly roll for the ORBC quilt along(the first one) and it turned really cute! Or you could go with the current one and do wonky log cabin blocks:-)
I have a wonderland jelly roll waiting to be used too, so be sure to post pictures of whatever you make with it. I need some inspiration! :-)

Anita in Florida said...

Congratualtions on your 100th post! I wish I could help you about what to make with a jelly roll...I have one that I 'stare' at but am afraid to use...I don't want to 'waste' it.

Cindy said...

I love the name of your blog - it so fits me!

I think a bargello style quilt would be fun with that jelly roll.

Clair said...

Make a nine patch quilt or else a log cabin one. clairjuly at yahoo dot com

peaknits said...

I think my own Wonderland will be for the ORBC Wonky Log Cabin - but another possibility...hmmm. There are so many awesome books out there - good luck:)

Deb said...

I just purchased a jelly roll pattern book by Heather Mulder Peterson, and I love some of the jelly roll quilts in there. (The link is on my sidebar.) But..to save having to purchase something, I'd say a coin quilt would be a simple yet dramatic way to use Wonderland. Happy 100th post.

Anna said...

Hi Crafty Procrastinator! :)

I like coin quilts. That's what they're called, eh? Just rows of interesting fabrics without too much hassle.

That's my vote.

Check out bonnie hunters patterns at quiltville.com I made her pineapple blossom quilt and it was lovely...used my 2.5" strips so had to do alittle math to convert, but it was fine. Made for my daughter when she turned 16 with brights...she loved it!

Piwacket said...

Congratulations! I'm going to post about your contest and provide a link.

I just finished a Fiddlesticks quilt, a pattern from Kansas Trouble Quilters. I love to see various patterns done in different colorways. Although the quilt on the cover, and the one I made are in very traditional country colors, I think it would look awesome using your happy, bright Moda jelly roll!

Egater said...

Congratulations.
I thnk that I would do something very simple with stripes - fabrics are so lovely

ladmquilter said...

I think a wonkey log cabin someone on flicker Old Red Barn Quilt along is using that material and it looks great. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jackie said...

I think it would look wonderful as a modern double wedding ring quilt. Here is an example:

Happy 100th post!
