Jelly Roll Quilt and Giveaway Week #4

I love jelly rolls.  It is fun to able to have a little piece of every fabric in a collection and create a beautiful quilt.  Here is a quilt I made using a jelly roll from the Vintage Modern fabric line.  



Amazingly, this entire quilt is made from two jelly rolls (one of those jelly rolls being prints and the other a solid) and an additional 1/2 yard.  The pattern for this quilt is a free Moda Bake Shop pattern called "Sweet Menagerie" and can be found here.  The finished size of the quilt as written is approximately 66 x 90.  I was able to stretch my jelly rolls even further and squeak out several more blocks to make a quilt that measures approximately 80 x 90. 


Work in Progress

Here is sneak preview of some blocks I am making using another jelly roll and a different pattern.  This is a NEW jelly roll from Moda's Hubba Hubba line by Me and My Sister Designs available in my online quilt shop here.  I am ready to start assembling the blocks.  I will reveal the finished quilt soon.

  1. I recently made a quilt from a pattern called "under the sea" from the book "quilts from sweet jane" by Sue Pfau. I think it would be lovely in many different colors and collections of fabric. In case you aren't familiar with the pattern, you can see my version here:

  4. Love this! You have 'made' me want to go shopping for jelly rolls!! . . . I have only done two quilts with JRs, a JRR quilt and the square in a square. Liked making them both but love the square in a square look.

  28. I am not a scrappy quilter, so I have never used a Jelly Roll before, but this year I am trying to learn to get out of this box of tailored, structured and matching quilt style I am in, so a Jelly Roll of any kind would be a great place to start!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd love to make "Off Track" with a Jelly Roll. The first quilt I did was a jelly roll race and it was such fun. Of course it took me about 4 hours, so I think I came in last, but I still love it! Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. LOVE this! this quilt is so cheery. What a great use for jelly rolls. Although I love cutting and sewing with strips, I have to admit that I've never bought a jelly roll! I love all of the fabric variety though!

    I'm so glad you shared at Needle and Thread Thursday!

  39. I've used jelly rolls to make baby quilts. I have a few jelly rolls that I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with yet, but it's fun looking at all the ideas!

  42. Your jelly roll quilt is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. I'm planning to make this Wishes String Quilt featured in the Moda Bakeshop. http://www.modabakeshop.com/2014/01/wishes-string-quilt.html#more. My favorite thing about quilting is looking at the lovely fabric, and this quilt showcases it well. And it will be great to sew with precut jelly rolls! Thanks for the awesome chance to win! Your shop is lovely.

  45. I really like using the jelly roll strips in patterns that call for 2 1/2" strips. I've made the Jelly roll race which was fun. Right now I'm finishing a quilt pattern, "Saluations by Happy Quilting Melissa" which uses a jelly roll, layer cake and plain yardage. I'm loving how it's turned out. Thanks.

  46. That quilt is really cute. I haven't tried that pattern but it looks like fun.

  47. I am a follower through email. Thank you for the chance at the giveaway. Had a peek around your shop too. Lovin that Twice as Nice bundle.

  48. One I have in progress is a variation on Carrie Nelson's (Miss Rosie Quilts) Quadrille, done in the Aviary fabrics but from Moda scrap bags, which requires a ton of trimming to get 2 1/2" strips and piecing two strips with a 1 1/2" inset to make the 5 1/4" quarater square triangles. Gaahhh.

  52. The Hubba Hubba Jelly Roll would be so much fun for a fresh spring quilt - beautiful bright colors.

  53. I would love to try the Sweet Menagerie pattern jelly roll quilt. A beautiful pattern to try out the wonderful colors that the jelly rolls have to offer.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I' a Bloglovin' follower and I am lovin' your blog!

  55. I've got so many strippy projects in mind that I could use a hundred jelly rolls to save cutting strips. I do have a couple on hand, and now am motivated to make the quilt you've shown. Have downloaded the instructions and will be happy to cut the solid strips. They likely won't be "solid" tho -- probably a light colored batik or tone on tone. Glad you are sponsoring these giveaways and thanks a bunch.

  56. I bought an ivory jelly roll, but, have yet to untie it. Still waiting to have the time to begin a new project I love pre-cuts, too.

  60. I love making quilts with jelly rolls and your quilt looks fabulous! I'll have to add that one to my list. I made the cartwheels pattern from the bake shop and it turned out so cute. It's twin size.

  61. one of these days, I plan to make a "1600" jelly roll quilt. I haven't decided WHICH jelly roll to use, so I keep buying candidates ;->

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love your patterns. I made a quilt called tessellating stars from a jelly roll that I love.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I am fairly new to quilting even tho I have sewn for years. I really love the new Moda fabric and the Hubba Bubba collection. I think I would like to try and make something with that one for sure. I am looking and have seen a lot of new fabrics that aren't in my local store. I am getting very excited!
