It’s A Race To The Finish, A Jelly Roll Race…


With the heat of summer upon us, we usually look for fun projects to do before the mad rush of the fall when our die hard quilting starts to take over our lives once again.  One such project is a Jelly Roll Race Quilt. The only requirement you need to make this fun and quick lap size quilt is a Jelly Roll.  What is a Jelly Roll you may ask?  Well it belongs to the pre-cut family of fabrics.  It consists of 40 strips of fabric that measure 2 1/2 inches wide by approximately 42 inches in length.  All the fabrics will co-ordinate with each other as they will be from the same fabric line.  You sew all the strips together to make one continuous long strip.  Then the race begins, sewing and cutting. Sewing the ends together and cutting the strip in half repeatedly until you have a finished quilt top.  You can have your quilt top finished in less than an hour easy.  Click Here to see a listing of  our Jelly Rolls to choose from to make your own Jelly Roll Race Quilt.  Click Here to purchase the kit featured in this post.  For the free pattern Click Here

Mini Jelly Roll Race Doll Quilt


Denise created this cute little doll quilt using the Jelly Roll Race Pattern.  Instead of using the traditional 2 1/2 inch Jelly Roll strips she used 1 inch strips that she cut.  A  stop border and larger border were added.  With left overs the optional little pillows were made.  This is a great project for dolls 18 inches to 20 inches.  For a downloadable copy, Click Here for Jelly Roll Race Pattern.
