Tuesday Archives # 37: Jelly Roll Quilts!

Welcome to the linky party that let's you rejuvenate your old quilting/sewing posts! 
(Check over in my right margin for the list of our November themes.)

Val's Quilting Studio


This week finds us skimming though our archives for quilts made from a jelly roll or 2 1/2" strips. Please tell me I'm not the only one who prefers this dish of Jelly Rolls over the traditional yummy, bready version! (Truth be told, I can't resist a good Cinnamon Roll!) 

But, never the less, I've only made one quilt from a jelly roll and it was this Halloween quilt for our youngest daughter back in the Fall of 2010 when I had just started quilting. It was my second quilt made. I think what I like about using a jelly roll is it's quick and easy.  I was able to make this quilt in a weekend. (And yes, Jackson even photo bombed back then!!)
The above is lap size quilt made from a pattern called: Strip Search by G.E. Desgins.
Anyhoo...I'm always grateful to each of you for stopping by and making Tuesday Archives a success! I so enjoy seeing your older posts and always learn something new from them.Sooo...with that said:


  1. I love quilts made with strips! And to my horror, I discovered I didn't have a photo of one of my favorites that I made for my niece in 2011, my pre-blogging days. I will have to ask her to take a photo... I'm ready for next week with my turkey quilt too!
    Pugs and kisses,

    1. Turkey Quilt?? Oooo that has me intrigued... :)

  2. That's a fun arrangement of strips in your Halloween quilt. It makes a change from the straight rail fence block.

  3. That was your second quilt! Oh Val you were born to quilt! It is great. I have never made one but I bet I will be inspired by these quilts.

  4. very nice, I have 3 jelly rolls sitting in a cupboard, I did use one but made small things, a bag for the cutting mat and other pouches for rulers etc. not sure where the rest went, probably into 2.5" squares and some went into the tula pink blocks

  5. Hi Val, Thank you for doing this link party each week. It has been lots of fun to enter and visit other blogs.
    I don't work from jelly rolls but will enjoy seeing other's posts! LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  6. jelly rolls are my favorite precut! I am working on the quilting for a quilt project for the Moda Bake Shop right now (project tutorial due to release early December) that is a full/queen size quilt with ONE jelly roll!

  7. I love love jelly rolls! I think my favorite part about them is how pretty they are all rolled up with the different colors. On my way to check out the other links, I just received some Lost & Found Love jelly rolls and I can't wait to use them!

  8. Oh, I love those colors in the quilt...makes me feel so happy on this cold and gloomy day. Thanks for sharing with all of us, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  9. I love using jelly rolls in quilts and table runners!

  10. What a bright and fun quilt! I don't do much with pre cuts other than fat quarters, so I've never made a jellyroll quilt.

  11. Your "Eye Spy" quilt is adorable! I love that your little ones love Cars, mine did too. Also, this linky party was a lot of fun. I love using Jellyrolls and have some "lying around" waiting for inspiration. Pre-cuts are great, aren't they?

  12. Oh man....so much Jelly Roll inspiration this week! Everything from Scarves and pillows to queen size quilts!! Thanks to everyone for rejuvinating such awesome archives!!! I can't wait to use up my Jelly Rolls that have been gathering dust!! V:)
