What could one do with a Jelly Roll?

Many a time, clients would ask what could they do with a Jelly Roll. The ladies always buys Jelly Rolls because it is so beautiful and pre cut but in the same sentence they would pose the question of what are they going to do with the Jelly Roll.

I love the Jelly Rolls and also have a stack of beautiful jellies that still need to become something. I have been dwelling on the idea  and came across the following book. Jelly Roll Samplet Quilts, written by Pam & Nicky Lintott.

One could make 10 different sampler quilts or 50 patchwork blocks from the patterns provided in the book. The instructions are user friendly and illustrated step by step by means of colour images.

I like that fact that one could choose from 8 " block sizes to 16" block sizes. What I like the most is the fact that one could make a whole quilt top by using one Jelly Roll.

I have started with my quilt top and is using a Jelly Roll from Moda Fabrics. I have chosen Sassy which was designed by Sandy Gervais. Although I love pastels, this Jelly Roll is such a bright and fun roll which I could not resist.

  1. Jelly rolls and any type of pre-cut is really useful. It saves quite a bit of time, and yu are guaranteed straight edges, always useful when cutting straight is a challenge
