    Solid Jelly Rolls

    Hi....hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.

    I have two solid Robert Kaufmann jelly rolls...one in rainbow colors and one in medium colors and was wondering what pattern I can use for them that would show them up the best. I have been looking at jelly roll patterns and think I might end up with a boring quilt. Was wondering if I should use a print jelly roll with them....any ideas would be great.

    Thanks so much.

    I would probably use them with a panel that you can cut up, like a children's soft book. Use your 2.5" strips for borders around the blocks.

    Solid Jelly Rolls (many colors but solid)

    Hi.....hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season.

    I have two Robert Kaufmann solid jelly rolls....one in rainbow colors and one in medium colors and was wondering what would be a good pattern to use for them to make them pop. I have been looking at jelly roll patterns and fear I will end up with a boring quilt. I was wondering how they would look with a print jelly roll but that might be complicated for me....ha.

    Any suggestions would be great. Would love to know how you used your solid jelly rolls.

    Thank you.

    You could look at the antique Amish quilts. They were all done in solids and are very beautiful. They might give you some ideas.

    I love this log cabin and hope to make one similar someday. The white side sort of tones down the abundance of color on the other side.

    Finally finished!

    Set them in a black background like Kona black and go Amish but choose any pattern you like.

    Missouri Star Quilt Co. had a tutorial on a star using jelly rolls. It was SO MUCH fun to make and really striking. I used bright colors on a black background.

    In her book "City Quilts" by Cherri House, she provides patterns that use only solids. A lot of the pics are in deep dark colors, but in the book there are some lighter ones, too. Maybe google her name and see some of her work...
