One of the funnest fabrics that I receive to work with are Jelly Rolls. These are typically a roll of fabric from a collection by a designer. Most of the time, they Jelly Roll contains two 2 1/2″ x WOF cuts in the Jelly Roll. However, there are other Jelly Rolls available. Moda offers a number of Jelly Rolls that are all white fabric, all wheat-colored fabric as well as red and black Jelly Rolls and then Marble Jelly Rolls. USUALLY, I use the designer’s Jelly Rolls for quilts and the Moda Jelly Rolls for binding quilt projects.
Jelly Rolls are perfect for my “lazy quilter” status. 🙂
In October, I picked up some beautiful batik Jelly Rolls at Quilt Market:
Thus far, I have used them mainly to bind quilts – but, I truly want to put a simple quilt together with the remainder of my Jelly Rolls. I am thinking a quilt like this that I designed a few years ago:
Or perhaps I’ll design something else – fun and funky, to match the batik fabrics in the Jelly Rolls.
What type of fun quilts have YOU made with Jelly Rolls?
