Blogger's Choice: Katy Jones - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Blogger’s Choice: Katy Jones

Katy Jones of I’m a Ginger Monkey, put together the perfect Summertime bundle that is begging to be made into a quilt and then taken on a picnic. Lucky for you, that bundle is available at the Fat Quarter Shop! She chose 12 prints and 3 solids to include in her Blogger’s Choice Bundle. Keep reading for a bit more from Katy and a chance to win one of her blogger-approved bundles!

Q: What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
A:Literally as soon as my blogger’s bundle arrived I started cutting and piecing and by the end of the day I had a quilt top! I added in one extra fat quarter (a timeless treasures sketch in an aqua blue colour – not sure of the exact colour!) so I could make a total of 16 St Louis 16 Patch blocks.

Q: What quilt project are you currently working on?
A:Right now I’m working on too many things all at once because I get easily distracted. My favourite of the bunch is a quilt from my book (25 patchwork quilt blocks) in a heap of different pink fabrics which will be for my daughter once it’s done, but I also have english paper pieced blocks to work on at night when I watch TV.

Hot Seat:
1. jelly roll or layer cake
2. planned or scrappy
3. prints or solids

  8. My guess is jelly roll and planned prints.If I had to guess her favorites in this line, it would be the red and white stripe and the aqua with cherries. Or, maybe those are MY favorites.

  9. I would choose layer cake, scrappy and prints. I think that is your style. I love the color combinations in these fabrics. Such fun and inspiration to sew and create.

    Thanks for the chance to enter.

  10. jelly roll

    Love the idea of the curtain rod and clips to hang a quilt in progress! Will copy it asap!

  11. I think Katy would choose a jelly roll, planned and prints.. She might also love scrappy so that is the hardest one for me to pick.
    Your winner will love this bundle of fabrics.

  12. Jelly roll, scrappy and prints. I love the idea of a curtain rod and clip to hold up quilts in progress! I have no floor space and so I'm stealing that idea!

  13. I think that the choice would have to be Jelly Roll, Scrappy and Prints! I would really love to win this bundle; those are "my" colors! Thank you!

  14. I am going with jelly roll, scrappy, prints! Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful fabric!
