Jelly Roll Challenge The Challenge is to use jelly roll (2.5-inch) strips in a project. Any sewing or craft project is acceptable. Your item can be a quilt, wall hanging, purse, tote, home d?cor, apron, coat, rug, whatever you can dream up. You will then bring it to club and show it off, giving a description of the techniques you used to create your design. If you would like to demonstrate a particular technique, we will have the Solaris and the Triumph at your disposal. Also, if you cannot make it to club that day, drop it off earlier with your name and a description of the techniques you used. We will then number the items, display them in the shop and post them on social media for our customers to vote on their favorites for the next week (yes, this is going to be very difficult with all the talented people we have!). After the voting period has ended, we will then announce the winner.
