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!

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

Petunias are the unsung hero of the flower garden. Those vibrant petals and long-lasting blooms adorn my yard with color all summer long. Of course, as fall draws near, my petunias tend to look a little “long-in-the-tooth,” and by first frost, they’re ready to be retired.
