National Sew a Jelly Roll Day 2017

National Sew a Jelly Roll Day 2017

Our friends at Moda are hosting “National Sew a Jelly Roll Day today, Sept. 16, and we are super excited! We couldn’t resist such a tempting invitation to break into our stash of sweet 2.5” fabric strips, so we thought we’d share some of our all-time favorite Jelly Roll projects!

First one up is the Jelly Roll Race Quilt, a fantastic quilt for a beginner, and a wonderful way to show off an entire jelly roll! We think this Poetry Prints Jelly Roll would make a florally fragrant Jelly Roll Race Quilt.

Another fast and easy fabric strip creation is the Stack and Flip Quilt! It looks great in rainbow colors, but a Colors of Moda Blue Jelly Roll would create a blue sky or oceanic effect. Add some applique for a fun spin!

If you want to use a jelly roll to create a bag to hold…ahem…more jelly rolls, then check out Man Sewing’s Folded Fabric Strips Bag! This sturdy and spacious bag can catch all those fabric shopping trip finds, and a Coney Island Jelly Roll would make an absolutely divine tote!

We have lots of other jelly roll projects that you can find on our Missouri Star Quilt Co. Jelly Roll playlist! Click HERE to watch!

You can view our selection of 2.5″ strips HERE, and if you love your jelly rolls as much as we do, then our “Let Me See That Jelly Roll” shirt is a must-have!

This is How I Jelly Roll

How are you celebrating National Sew a Jelly Roll Day? Be sure to share your jelly roll projects with us on our Facebook and Instagram using #projectjellyroll and #msqcshowandtell! Have fun sewing!

Summer Camp Quilt Tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

Many years ago, Jenny took her very first quilt class. Even though she was already an accomplished seamstress, quilting seemed a bit daunting. During that class, she learned how to make a log cabin. And when she realized how simple and versatile that little block can be, a fire was lit! Before the class finished, Jenny had completed 12 quilts – and she’s never stopped quilting!

September has arrived, and I’ve already noticed the first few signs of fall. The sun is setting earlier, there’s a little chill in the morning air, and the geese are on the move! No matter how hot the sun is shining, that first southbound flock of the season tells me autumn is on it’s way.
