  • Athenas Puzzle

    Athenas Puzzle (74" x 89")
    By: Jean Romack, Wisconsin, USA

    This quilt was purchased as a kit and thankfully, all the strips were precut into 2.5" strips. It took over 1 month to make this quilt, and that was working on it as often as I could. My daughter went quilt shop hopping with me one day and just had to have this one. It is gorgeous and she loves it

  • Buckeye Pinwheels

    Blog: I Quilt Scarlet and Gray

    This quilt was made from a Jelly Roll I picked up at the Buckeyes Quilters Retreat organized by Barb Sills of Your Sew Special in 2009 at the Amish Door in Wilmot, Ohio. I love the colors Scarlet and Gray and this quilt sure uses both those colors in addtion to Black. Let's go Ohio State Buckeyes!

  • Central Park

    By: Susanne Klemm, Germany
    Blog: Suleons Flickwerk

    My beloved Central Park Jelly Roll, Kona Cotton (Snow, Bahama Blue, Cerise, Plum, Petal) and a simple modern pattern. Added some free motion motifs. I hope it keeps me warm in winter (used thick cotton batting). See my blog for a Double Wedding Ring Pillow from the remaining strips.

  • Cobblestone Roads

    Cobblestone Roads (51" x 71")

    Blog: Love Affair With My Brother

    This quilt was laid out probably 15 times before I settled on the arrangement that I really loved! I used the tube method for assembling my strips.

  • Country Stars

    Country Stars (60" x 72")
    By: Jennifer Johnston, Ontario, Canada

    My mom broke her leg and she lives too far away for me to visit so I made her this quilt as a way for me to sew some hugs that could be sent in the mail. The pattern is "Bali Sea Star" from "Scrap Basket Surprises" by Kim Brackett. The fabric is "Summers End" by Kansas Troubles Quilters for Moda.

  • Fall is in the Air

    Fall is in the Air (26" x 46")
    By: Tonya May, North Carolina, USA
    Blog: Tonya's Sewing Room

    I made this quilt using a jelly roll. It's called the jelly roll race. And since I sewed it by myself, I won the RACE. Go me!

  • Feeling Fall-ish

    Feeling Fall-ish (58"" x 64"")
    By: Ainsley, Northwest Territories, Canada
    Blog: Patty-Cake Manners

    A wedding gift for a cousin. I had bought the jelly roll 2 years earlier with no plans in mind - just something I couldn't leave in the quilt shop. The colors suited my cousin perfectly, and we were all delighted with how it turned out.

  • Happy Hibiscus - For Kelly

    Happy Hibiscus - For Kelly (62" x 70")
    By: Lizze, Missouri, USA
    Blog: Wandering Stars

    My Aunt was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer last Spring. She lived in Hawaii for the past 15 years & had a sunny smile. I found this Serrendipity jelly roll, a Hibiscus Batik, backed it in Minkee & made this Strip Search quilt. She told me she took it everywhere. Sadly, she passed away last week.

  • Jelly Roll & Diamonds

    Jelly Roll & Diamonds (40" x 50")
    By: Amber T, Texas, USA

    I fell in love with this fabric when I saw it at a quilt show! I got a jelly roll and 2 layer cakes, then went online to get yardage for quilt backs and bindings. I made this quilt for a little girl's first birthday.

  • Jelly Roll Quilt Along

    Jelly Roll Quilt Along (60" x 72")
    By: Mary Schuberg, California, USA
    Blog: Needled Mom

    This was a quilt done as a quilt-along from Moose on the Porch. The jelly roll was a gift from a dear friend so wrapping up in this quilt always reminds me of the friendship and good times we have shared. The backing is flannel so it is a toasty quilt on cool nights.

  • Kevin, Molly and Max

    Kevin, Molly and Max (60" x 72")
    By: Nancy McElwee, Pennsylvania, USA

    I made this quilt as a wedding gift for my nephew and his wife. Each of the blocks represents something in their life. A heart for each of them and their little boy, one for their dog, a bluebird for their wedding theme, three houses representing their homes before marriage and their new home.

  • Mosaic

    Mosaic (56" x 56")
    By: CathyW, United Kingdom

    I cut all the marbled samples into 2.5" squares to enhance the mosaic effect, and I think the black background really enhances the colours. Then I had to go back out the shops to buy more marble for a border! A quilt I cannot give away...

  • Olivia Joy's Sweet Nothings

    Olivia Joy's Sweet Nothings (30" x 36")
    By: Nancy Dyess, Texas, USA

    Olivia's mommy, Kayla is a hero who I got to know when she served in the US Navy overseas. When Kayla came home, got married and then had adoreable Olivia Joy and I knew I had to make a special something for her. I used the Zoe Pearn's Sweet Nothings for the blocks and the scrappy binding.

  • Over the Rainbow

    I received this jelly roll of Moda Brights last year. After much thought about a quilt for the roll, I came up with this design, which uses rectangular blocks in a staggered setting.

  • Partriotic Flowers

    Partriotic Flowers (6" x 8")
    By: BeanNM75, New Mexico, USA

    This quilt was designed by a good friend of mine who taught it as a class at our local quilt shop. I fell in love with the jelly roll as soon as I saw it. I suppose if I win, I'll have to share the prize with her.

  • Punkin Patch

    Blog: Punkin Patch

    This quilt was made for my grand-daughter (Punkin) at a retreat. Using 'Jelly Rolls' I was able to make it in one weekend, enjoying the sewing without the cutting.
    The pattern is Posie Patch, which is why it is called Punkin Patch.

    It's my first jelly roll quilt which I made with my first jelly roll ever. Well, if I should say more, it was my first full size quilt top which I sewed and my first pattern which i designed. Now it's waiting for batting and quilting.

    By: Rhonda, Tennessee, USA
    Blog: Quilter in The Gap

    There was a race day on 1Choice4Quilting blog in the beginning of summer and since I had never done the Jelly Roll Race I thought it would be fun. I had to cut my own Jelly Roll since I didn't have any on hand. The quilt reminds me of Spring so I named Spring Races

  • Strip quilt

    Strip quilt (110" x 110")
    By: Janice Dietz, Pennsylvania, USA

    I sewed my jelly rolls into one long strip and then sewed together end to end and repeated until I got to desired size. I trimmed it to 60" square and used the remainder to make the piano key border. It was quilted on my TL18 using QBOT. It took me about 4 weeks to complete this one.

    The Quilt of Insanity (67" x 67")
    By: Ranch Wife, New Mexico, USA
    Blog: Lovin' Life at the End of the Dirt Road

    Last year I jumped in on Julie Herman's (Jaybird Quilts) hexagon quilt along. I am a fairly new quilter-3 yrs & this was my first quilt along. I pieced the entire top and didn't like it. My fabric no longer spoke to me so I ripped, & ripped, & ripped. I re-pieced it in a scrappy setting & love it!
