jelly roll quilt


For my sister-in-law's birthday back in June (can you tell I'm just now catching up on things since our July move?), I made her a quilt. I knew I wanted to do something simple, yet try out a new technique, so when I saw Deborah's quilt made from the Jelly Roll 1600 quilt tutorial, I knew it would be the perfect project.


For the quilt top, I used an all-solids jelly roll from Moda that I'd been hoarding for over a year.



For the back, I used a Nani Iro double gauze (so soft and pretty and perfect for the back of a quilt, though a bit fussy to work with!) and paired it with two simple prints, including one by Denyse Schmidt. Thanks to the double gauze, the quilt turned out super cuddly.



I love how the quilt turned out---as did my sister-in-law!---and how quickly it came together. It's definitely a pattern I'll be using again.

  1. That looks great! The simplicity and colors are a definite win. Maybe a similar wall hanging is in my future...

  2. I risk repeating myself in your comments, but: the colors are great! You've also reminded me that I have a little charm pack somewhere in my stash, so I should look up patterns online and finally DO something with it!

  3. I love both yours and Deborah's - I like how the solid colors give this one a grown-up, modern feel. You're really developing a clear style with your quilting. I like it.
