Jelly Roll (noun): Jelly Rolls are collections of 2 1/2″ x 42″ strips of fabric produced by Moda Fabrics. Jelly Rolls typically include 40 strips of fabric but can vary. Other fabric manufacturers offer similar products such as Pops, Twice the Charm, Rolls, Roll Ups and Rolie Polies – you get the picture!

Quilt Along

For the third week, the Jelly Roll precut, quilty blogger Jen of Heritage Threads made the Jelly Roll Twist Quilt using the Road Trip 2.5″ Strips by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics.

She says, “Jelly Rolls are so easy and fun to use. When choosing a project for a jelly roll, consider if the pattern would work best with a fabric line that has more prints, or if it will work better with a fabric line that has a lot of repeats in the jelly roll. ” Great job Jen!
