Quilting with a Jelly Roll

I am a big fan of jelly rolls. I’ve made five quilts using them because they’re beautiful, fun, and a fantastic way to save time.

A jelly roll is a themed collection of precut fabrics.


The standard size of a roll is 40 fabric strips measuring 40” x 2 1/2”. There is a fabric collection for everyone, and there are endless possibilities of things to be made.

Here are a few to get you started:

  • quilts of all sizes
  • table runner
  • Christmas stockings
  • tote bag
  • stuffed animals
  • pillows

You’ll find more inspiration than you need if you head over to Pinterest and search for ideas. However, don’t forget about the option of tried and true pattern books with step-by-step instructions like the one below.

Have fun choosing your favorite collection, and happy sewing!
