I just bought this awesome retro reproduction fat jelly roll (5" wide as opposed to 2.5").

I really want to do something modern with it.  Something that twists modern with the retro fabric to give it a fresh look.

Does anyone have suggestions?  Pictures please!!

I ran across this pattern a week ago and have been recommending it to all my crafty friends. It's a jelly roll quilt and I think it would work well with the bright colors you've got there.

Very cute!  That one jelly roll makes two quilts.  Mine is a fat roll (5" wide) so it would make a lot more!

LOVE those fabrics. Too cute! I made a quilt using a slightly modified pattern from Oh, Fransson - the New Wave quilt. I made mine with all 30's reproduction prints and called it my Retro Wave quilt. I love the mix of a more modern pattern with the reproduction prints.




Have fun!

monkeybeans, I love that pattern too!  This fat jelly roll has 52 prints though!  i can't imagine making 52 waves.  But who knows I may have enough for more than one quilt.  I did come up with a plan. Its a mix of whirligig and a few modern squares. 

The fabric is ready for pick up but I can't get it till Monday Sad
