Default Jelly Roll Quilting

I have been reading a lot about the jelly roll quilts lately. I need to know how many rolls it takes to make a baby quilt and whether anyone has a turorial for one.

I made a quilt for a friend to use on her couch or throw over her when she has a treatment at the hospital. That took two jelly rolls. You can look at Missouri Star Quilt or go to You Tube and look for jelly roll quilts. There are many. I saw a new one the other day. Just google it. And if you want a "baby quilt made from jelly rolls" google that specifically.

I just made one for a baby. It came out 38 1/2" x 39 1/2". I used one jelly roll and cut the strips in half (on the fold)with scizzors. It wasn't real exact. I used about half of the strips. You might want to cut off some of the first strip like they do in the tutorial. That will stagger your seams.

I have a decent size one that I made from one roll into a rail fence, When I put borders on it will be roughly a twin size. I thin it depends on the pattern you plan to make

Thanks everyone!

I managed to get a sale on one of the quilting sites which offered a free Jelly Roll as a bonus. Now I have enough to finish two or three quilts and lots of good information from you laides about where to find patterns.

Thanks again!

I was at "Three Dudes Quilt Shop" in AZ, Ray has a jelly roll quilt, which is demonstrated on Missouri Star Quilt Co(YOU TUBE). The pattern was free...need one jelly roll, another yard and a half, 2 extra jelly roll strips....When Ray explained it...looked really easy.

I thought it might be nice to share what eventually happened after I posted this question. After our arrival in the states on April 26, I put together quilt blocks made from jelly roll strips to make a twin bed quilt for our new great grand daughter, Cadence Rose. *One set of strips was light pink; the second set was light pinks and spring greens; another was different prints of lavender and the last*Jelly*Roll*was strips of purples. *You can find other combinations at this site:*http://www.jellyrollfabric.net/

This is a link to the tutorial that I only saw once before I started her quilt.

I sewed one strip from each set together to make a 8.5" wide stripe--just like the video shows. *From there I cut the striped set to be 8.5" squares. *Finally, I laid out two squares facing each other (going opposite directions) and stitched them around the outside on all four sides. *Then I cut from corner to corner (both ways) making four triangles and opened them up to put the triangles together to make the blocks you see.**

What I did turned out totally different than I had expected, but it was a nice “first time” adventure. Thanks for looking!

What a great quilt! It's fabulous! I've gotten jelly rolls from that site, too & been very happy with them (especially the free ones!). Congrats on your newest little one!
