Bet You Can’t Eat This Jelly Roll?


All the rage right now is everything pre-cut.  Pre-cuts are a line of co-ordinating fabric cut into specific sizes bundled together.  They are usually released prior to the fabric being available off the bolt in yardage.  There is an endless supply of patterns, books etc. specifically for pre-cut fabrics.  They not only save you tons of time by not having to search co-ordinating fabric, but also they reduce greatly the amount of cutting you will need to do to piece your quilt top.  Below is a description chart from Moda Fabrics to explain just what those pre-cut fabrics are with those funny names.  Almost good enough to eat!  Click Here to view pre-cuts from our store.  Click Here to view pattern books exclusive to pre-cuts from our store.


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
