In a year when my world (and I suspect yours!) has gotten smaller, commitments have evaporated, and trips outside of the neighborhood are few and far between, anything goes. One day, I’m thinking that I need to make new window treatments for my living room, and the next, I’ve removed the drapes and rods, my husband has spackled the holes, and the two of us are debating a new color for the walls. Is this a project we would have taken on in a normal version of 2020? Maybe not. But this year we do it because we can.
Similarly, when a reader contacted me about my Ridiculously Easy Jelly Roll Quilt pattern in different sizes, my knee-jerk reaction was to politely send her on her way—it was an old, free pattern in one size that I wasn’t interested in revisiting. Then I thought, Why not? Within two weeks, I had designed the pattern, asked two tech editors to review it, and had posted it on Quilt Pattern Mart. Because I can!
So for you fans of my modern take on a chevron, this post is for you. The Ridiculously Easy Jelly Roll Quilt now comes in five sizes: child, lap, twin, queen, and king. I wrote the pattern for two different design options for all of your stash-busting and quilt-making needs. And because we are in the home stretch of this weird time called 2020, the pattern is $5 through the end of the year. To sum up, the pattern is still ridiculously easy, and for the next five weeks, it’s ridiculously cheap, too. : )
Can you relate? What quilty endeavors have you taken on this year that you wouldn’t have if life were normal?
