Happy National Jelly Roll Day!

Did you know this was even a thing? Moda was the inventor of jelly rolls, a a lovely roll of 40-42 2 1/2 inch wide strips, one from each print of a collection. Other fabric companies jumped on board , though their rolls are known by other names. Copyright and all that. Anyway, in honor of the day, I thought I would share a few jelly roll quilts that I have made.

Did this put you in the mood to break open one of your own jelly rolls? I hope so! They really are fun to work with.

And if you don’t have any jelly rolls, you are in luck! Fat Quarter Shop is having an amazing sale with jelly rolls up to 40% off to celebrate the day. Click the link to head to their homepage, click on the menu, then “On Sale”, and then choose jelly rolls. The sale is only good through tomorrow. While you are there, check out their daily Flash Sale.

Now, go unroll that jelly roll you’ve been saving! Have a great day!

    You used French General jelly rolls for that granny square quilt? I would sure love to know more about your process or a hint at a pattern. It’s a great quilt!

    Val’s comment cracked me up—I only have one jelly roll too!

  2. You have so many beautiful jelly roll quilts! I love the Amy Butler one and have been wondering what to do with my AB stash – now I know. I’ve the perfect fabric for the border and blocks. Thanks so much for this inspiring post!

  4. Well, that was a fun mini quilt show! Thank you. I have a half jelly that I’m thinking about sewing up today. I just need to settle on a pattern while I finish my morning coffee (late start to the day).

    Beautiful quilts, Katy! You definitely know your way around a jelly roll. My one and only jelly roll is still waiting to be called into action. I’ve unrolled and rerolled it a few times so at least it gets a little exercise.

  7. What a wonderful collection of jelly roll quilts you’ve created! WOW!
