Jelly Roll Quilt a Long – Konda Luckau - and stuff from Paducah

I am sorry I haven’t posted anything in the last 2 weeks, I again, have no really good excuse, but life just got in the way. I went to Paducah for two days and had a really good time. One of the really neat things was that I got to meet the writer of the blog that I read Konda Lucau, she writes Moose on the Porch and posts the Jelly Roll Quilt a Long blocks that I have been working on. I talked to her quite a while at the show. I really didn’t even pay attention to her booth and after I left I wished I had bought one of her books, especially since I could have looked at it there and got her to sign it!

I also got to see Eleanor Burns at a show. She was really funny. She was trying to get you to buy the book she wrote Quilt Blocks on American Barns. It was all I could do to not buy the book. I am not sure that I would ever make the quilt, but it looked like a great book to buy and read.



This was the pavilion where Eleanor Burns had all her stuff for sale.

I bought a lot of stuff at the quilt show, several patterns and kits.

This kit is all flannel, I think it will be fun to make and really warm.


This is a 5 yard quilt kit I bought, I’m going to put it in the camper.


A couple of fat quarters I bought.


This was a $5 fat quarter bundle I bought. For some reason, I’m really into the fruit and vegetable fabric right now, not sure what quilt I am going to make with it.


Another $5 fat quarter bundle.


This was a bundle of fat quarters I bought from Hancock’s for $14.99. It’s a Moda line but I will have to look up what line it is.


This bundle was the same price for $14.99. One of these was an Aloha Line.


This was a jelly roll from Hancock’s.


I bought this ruler and book for strip tubing. If I ever make something with it, I will post it also.


This is a little binder ruler that makes the end of your binding easier to miter. We’ll see if I can figure it out.


I also bought a crazy ruler, but haven’t got it yet. I took a picture of the block that I can make with the ruler. Plus it uses all that fruit and veggie fabric I have been collecting, but not sure that I will do it with that ruler though.


All for now! Have a great week.
