You may also collect &ldquo;pre-cuts&rdquo;, those tempting packages of many pieces of fabric already cut for you into charming sizes. They&rsquo;re so popular, there is even a special lingo associated with them &ndash; layer cakes and dessert rolls, honey buns and jelly rolls.</span><br /><br /><span>Recent studies have shown that many quilters collect these pre-cuts without knowing what to do with them, without having a purpose. The Jelly Roll in particular is left in it&rsquo;s original packaging and stacked on the shelf to gather dust. Despite a huge resource of inspiration, many quilters report that they&rsquo;re waiting for a special reason to break out the Jelly Roll and use it for a project.</span><br /><br /><span>That&rsquo;s where Project Jel</span><span class="text_exposed_show">ly Roll and the National Sew A Jelly Roll Day come in.&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/modafabrics/" data-hovercard="/ajax/hovercard/page.php?id=336301100246&amp;extragetparams=%7B%22directed_target_id%22%3A119763108684919%7D" data-hovercard-prefer-more-content-show="1">Moda Fabrics United Notions</a>&nbsp;has designated the 3rd Saturday in September &ndash; September 16, 2017 &ndash; as National Sew A Jelly Roll Day to encourage collectors to tear open a Moda Jelly Roll and make something for themselves, as a gift or for charity! It can be a quilt or a tote bag, a pillowcase or something to wear, it doesn&rsquo;t matter so long as we seize the day and celebrate the joy of being a maker.<br /><br />There are going to be all kinds of projects to share from fast, easy and fun to &ldquo;a little bit more going on&rdquo;. And of course, we expect there will be a race or two, a few giveaways and plenty of silliness.<br /><br />So start dusting off your Jelly Rolls and let&rsquo;s get rolling!<br /><br />Share your day on social media with&nbsp;<a class="_58cn" href="https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/projectjellyroll" data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;*N&quot;,&quot;type&quot;:104}">#projectjellyroll</a>.
