On a Roll – 14 Jelly Roll-Friendly Quilts

When it comes to speed of putting together a quilt top, Jelly Rolls are the Usain Bolt of the precut world. Is there anything faster than unrolling a spiral of 2.5″ wide coordinating precut strips and cutting them to size? Next thing you know, you’re sewing strips together for a quick and easy quilt top.

To capitalize on the fun and fabulous versatility of jelly rolls, the team of designers at Moda – the Moda All-Stars – have put together a collection that uses the irresistible Jelly Roll.

Patchwork reigns in 14 quilt patterns created by favorite Moda designers, including Lisa Bongean, Sherri McConnell, Joanna Figueroa, Sandy Klop, and Corey Yoder. From simple and classic to fresh and contemporary, beautiful quilts will inspire you to get the ball rolling!

A Sampling of the Quilts

Some of these quilts can be made in a weekend, like the One-Roll Wonder quilt by Me & My Sister Designs (below). This quilt uses one Badda Bing Jelly Roll as the main fabric and looks so cheerful and satisfying to make.

Jelly Roll strips and some well-placed applique make Rule the Roost by Anne Sutton worth crowing about!
Sweet Butterfly by Stacy Iest Hsu transforms plain strips into beautiful butterflies.
Betsy Chutchian takes a scrappy approach to this lap quilt, Mountain Climbing, which can look traditional or modern, depending on your choice of fabrics.
Prairie points (folded triangles) are the star in Flip Side. Pam Ehrhardt and Linzee McCray make use of this oft-overlooked embellishment in a design that’s sure to become an instant classic.
Each pattern in of Moda All-Stars – On a Roll – 14 Quilts That Start with 2 1/2″ Strips comes with beautiful photos and detailed full-color instructions. Pick up the book, a Jelly Roll, and some background fabric and you’ll be rockin’ and rollin’ in no time!
As an added bonus, all royalties from the book will go to School on Wheels to make a difference in the lives of homeless children.
