Best Day Ever... Jelly Roll Pattern...

So, I have decided to make the quilt the Best Day Ever next with my Jelly Roll...  Moda Bake Shop has great, free pattern's.  I am very excited to start this quilt... simple, easy, and fun!


So Much Going On...

So, I have to admit I am really trying to get myself to really focus on Blogging.  I love reading everyone Else's Blogs and seeing what they are making.   However, I have just been in a funk these past few months.  My beautiful cousin passed away at 51, after battling Breast Cancer for 10 Years.  She was the most beautiful, loved, charismatic & wonderful mother to ever walk the face of the earth.  It was and still is so devastating, especially with the holidays coming up.  My cousin Maggie could Light up a room whenever she walked in...  I am still grieving and it makes it really hard to focus...  That is my Maggs in the Middle, and to the right with the dark hair is my sister and then Maggie's daughter and my cousin Francesca...  The guy in the white shirt is a Waiter who accidentally photo bombed our pic (lol).  What I wouldn't do to go back to that time in our lives.  Now, I am trying to use my grief to help me to be a better, more productive person... And it starts with my quilting and trying to learn to be a phenomenal quilter and sewing enthusiast! 
Have a Wonderful Day!

What to do with a Jelly Roll?

Jelly Rolls are a great way to make a fast, fun, and easy strip quilt.  Even beginners can whip out a quilt easily.  Quilting with Jelly Rolls are one of my favorite methods of making a quilt.
I love to buy Jelly Rolls online and at quilt shops, they always look so pretty and the quilting possibility's are endless.

My last Jelly Roll Quilt was called Split Decision.  This quilt was so much fun to make, however, it's not a free pattern (insert sad face here).  Currently, I am also looking through this list to decide which quilt to make with my new Jelly Roll... Lilac Hill by Moda

Here’s a list of free jelly roll patterns that I found online... Enjoy!

The Disney Movie Pollyanna....

 I finally bought the Disney Movie, "Pollyanna," on Google Play.. I watched it with my 2 & 4 year old.  I loved every second of it and it brought back so many wonderful memories of these great movies from when I was young.  Even after watching this movie so many times as a kid, it still makes me cry today.  The house and the costumes that they used in the movie were so beautiful.  I was so anxious to see where they filmed the movie.  I found this wonderful website... 

 You have to check out this site.  The woman that writes the blog has tons of homes that are featured in movies and tv.  Another one of my favorite shows of all time is, Charmed.  She has a wonderful article on the famous Halliwell Home!  I have to thank her for bringing back so many treasured memories of my childhood with her information and writing.

The Grand Victorian Mansion used in the movie "Pollyanna"

After 11-year old Pollyanna is orphaned, she goes to live with her stern and humorless Aunt Polly (Jane Wyman), who lives in this three-story mansion.
Pollyanna movie Victorian house
The movie was based on the classic 1913 novel by Eleanor H. Porter and takes place in 1910, so the filmmakers faced the challenge of recreating the era. They decided to film in Santa Rosa, California, but couldn’t find a three-story house that would work. The solution? A little Hollywood magic.
