I always thought that the purpose of a jelly roll was that they all coordinated?
I would stick with the jelly roll. The quilt will end up looking a bit scrappier than maybe you intended but I do think those fabrics go together. Just think of them in terms of darks, mediums and lights rather than separate fabrics. That might make life a bit easier for you.

I think the reds and blacks look jarringly different. I vote for your option of finding other fabric. And while you're at it, you could find more Kona fabric to match the reds and blacks - that would be a striking quilt, wouldn't it?!

I kind of like the mix of the jelly roll and the Kona solids. Go for it!


Once again, you have the red/black kitchen combo. You'd better start making some chair pads. I like your idea of solid center/print center. The red blacks look too off from the others. And again-kitchen? trivets? Did you get one of mom's kitchen fridge magnetic scissors holder? If not, get pattern and make one red/black.


I support your instincts, the black stuff seems severe in this mix


I wouldn't have thought the blacks and reds go in this jelly roll. I like your first choice. I would go on a Kona hunt.

Go on a Kona hunt. It sounds good.

I'm catching up on your blog and I am so glad to see what you're doing with the jelly roll that you won from Fat Quarterly! Your blocks look great, and the fact that you are donating it makes it even more special.
