July Swap: It’s A HUGE Jelly Snowflake Mystery!

I am so excited about the Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt Along at Jolly Jabber.  Christmas in July.  Christmas sew-alongs.  Christmas quilts!  And I think this is going to be a fantastic Swap, too, because who doesn’t love Christmas and making new friends!?

About the Jelly Snowflake Mystery Quilt Along

You can read all about the Jelly Snowflake Quilt Along here at Jolly Jabber, the blog for Fat Quarter Shop.  In a nutshell, though, here’s what you need to know:

  • There are only 4 blocks, released once a week for 4 weeks.
  • The first block will be released on Thursday, July 2.  (Then Thursday, July 9, 16, and 23 for the other 3 blocks.)
  • The first block will be released on Pat Sloan’s Blog.
  • Thursday, July 30 they’ll release a video to show you how to finish your quilt.
  • All you need to start with are fourteen 2.5″ X 42″ strips (or a Jelly Roll) and 2.5 yards of background fabric.  (Be careful.  Some Jelly Rolls have 40 strips but some only have 20 or 22.  If you’re making these blocks for yourself AND your Swap Buddy, make sure you get enough fabric.)
  • You will need 5/8 yd for binding and 3 3/8 yd for backing if you want to complete the quilt.
  • This quilt finishes at 50.5″ square.
  • I’ll be sharing our weekly progress in the Fabric Swap Happy Mail Group on Facebook.  Make sure you join the group!  We want to see your pictures, too!

Fat Quarter Shop has a huge selection of Jelly Rolls!  Their prices are great and delivery is fast.  

Now, Let’s Talk About the Swap!

What to Swap:

You only need to send one (1) of each of the four (4) blocks to your Swap Buddy.  You do NOT need to send a completed quilt.

Contact me again to confirm that you and your Swap Buddy have made contact as soon as possible.
