What is a Jelly Roll Strip Quilt Pattern?

A jelly roll strip quilt pattern is a vibrant and fun way to bring life to any space. It refers to a quilt pattern made using pre-cut strips of fabric, usually 2.5 inches wide, known as “jelly rolls”. These strips are sewn together to create an eclectic and eye-catching design, perfect for quilts, throws, or even a stylish wall hanging.

Materials Required

To create your own jelly roll strip quilt, you’ll need the following materials:

  • A jelly roll strip set or an assortment of 2.5-inch wide fabric strips
  • A pair of fabric scissors
  • Quilting pins
  • A sewing machine
  • Thread to match your fabric
  • Quilt batting
  • Quilt backing fabric

The Tutorial: Creating a Jelly Roll Strip Quilt

Step 1: Unrolling the Jelly Roll

Start by unrolling your jelly roll strip set and laying out your strips. This will give you an idea of all the different fabrics you have to work with. Try to arrange the strips in an order that’s pleasing to your eye. Remember, there are no rules when it comes to creativity!


Step 2: Sewing the Strips Together

Take two strips, place them right sides together, and sew along one of the long edges using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Open up the sewn strips and press the seam with an iron to create a crisp, flat join. Repeat this process, adding one strip at a time until all of your strips are joined together.


Step 3: Creating the Quilt Top

Now, you’ll need to decide how wide you want your quilt to be. Measure that width on your strip set and cut. Continue this process until you have enough panels to reach your desired quilt length.

Step 4: Joining the Panels

Place two panels right sides together and pin along one edge, then sew with a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Repeat with the rest of the panels until your quilt top is complete.

Step 5: Adding Batting and Backing

Finally, layer your quilt top with batting and backing fabric, then sew around the edges. Quilt as desired, bind the edges, and voila! You’ve just made a jelly roll strip quilt.
