Modern Patchwork Note Cards

I made a slew of these for gifts at Christmas, and they were really well received. In fact, someone requested I make some for my shop. So, I pulled out my scrap bins and had lots of fun playing with color and fabric combinations.
I may or may not have made a ridiculous number of these modern patchwork note cards. I've listed them by color in sets of six. Even more to finish and list soon.
I linked to a tutorial before by PioneerValleyGirl, although this time I developed my own technique for making them. Foundation piecing each rectangle on muslin allowed me the control I wanted.

They are super cute... might have to borrow your idea for some markets at the end of the year... if you don't mind?

I love these! What a great way to have notes on hand, I've had to run to the store 3 times in the last month for just this type of card. Needless to say I wasn't thrilled with what I ended up with either.
Thank you for the link to solving this problem.

I just found your baby boy pattern using a Moda jellyroll. Is that jellyroll still available, or was it last year? I am having a hard time finding those colors. It is perfect for what I want. Susan

Susan. Yes, you should still be able to find a Pure jelly roll.
As of March 2011 they have them here http://jellyrolls2go.com/pure-moda-jelly-roll.html
and here http://thequiltedcastle.com/item_5292/Pure-Jelly-Roll-by-Sweetwater.htm
and probably other online retailers. I haven't used these sellers before, just FYI.
Hope that helps, and I hope you enjoy the pattern!
