Top 10 Jelly Roll Quilt Patterns

Get ready to roll with my TOP TEN jelly roll quilt patterns! I’ve collected some of my favorite jelly roll-friendly quilt patterns to share with you.

If you’re new to quilting, Jelly Rolls are 2.5″ x 42″ strips that also go by Bali Pops, Roll-Ups, Rolie Polies, or Design Rolls (depending on the manufacturer). But no matter what you call them, they’re fun to sew with and oh so, pretty.

All these quilts listed below are available in paper and PDF versions, and if you’d like to see the full video of my picks, read on.

I love Jelly Roll quilts because they’re easy to get started! (That is, if I can bring yourself to cut into that perfect little Jelly Roll!) If you don’t have a Jelly Roll to use, simply cut your fabric scraps into 2.5″ strips, and you’ll be on your way.
