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!
