Guilty pleasure

Guilty Pleasures. I think we all have them. I have many; food related mine are ice cream or pizza and entertainment related it is Fringe or Haven in TV. Love it, and I feel most happy on my sofa under a thick quilt when I can watch an episode of Fringe and if I allow myself an ice cream while watching .....then... well.. it is heaven.....

But the other day I also realised I have a guilty pleasure when it comes to quilting. And that are jelly roles ! Yes you heard right, jelly roles. I used to hate them and still do when I unroll the thing and it makes a blooming mess everywhere. But they do satisfy a need for simple quilting in me and in particular when I just finished a big and complex project.

I love strip quilts as you probably know by now and a jelly role fulfills just that love in a quick and sort of dirty way. You just unroll, place the strips in a pleasing manner and start sewing... 2 hours later you have a quilt top !

Tell me do you have quilting related guilty pleasures ?

This here is a strip quilt from the new Momo for Moda collection 'Oh Deer' that I purchased some weeks ago. This quilt top has been finished a few weeks ago but because I was working on this super secret project for the past 10 days I didn't have time to share it with you. That is also the reason why I did not blog much either. I thought I'd rather not bore you with randomness and come back if I have to show something.

The secret project will be revealed towards the end of next week but I can 't help put hint that it involves a rather prestigious well known British Fabric House.

I can't wait to spend some quality time with this quilt top tomorrow and am still quivering with excitement about the secret project!

Have a lovely weekend everybody.


  1. Your jelly roll quilt looks good. Can't wait to find out what your secret project is! I'm liking the sound of your hint ;)
    My quilting guilty pleasure would be handquilting in my pyjamas with a glass of wine beside me (and a tub of Pringles would make it heaven!)

  2. I, for one, am clutching at straws and awaiting a fabulous Liberty project from you!!??!!!
    I am going to be eating chocolate, sewing hexies and watching Eastenders this evening - guilty as charged!


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
