Jelly Roll Quilts


This month's favorite Summer Project for A Quilting Life  is your favorite Jelly Roll Quilt Pattern.  I have a lot of 'go-to' JR patterns, but I love this one for the flow and color.  It is my own design and the tutorial can be found HERE.  It is a Faux Braid using just a half log cabin block - yes, just ONE block.



 You get the design by color lay-out and setting of the block.  Very quick and very easy as long as you label your rows.



And this was the first quilt I had long-armed by a new longarmer in the area and I love this pattern that flows from one area into the next adding to the design of the braid.



The fabric is a Bunny Hill design 'Lily & Will' and I added some of my stash lights.  The backing is a Benartex lite brown floral on brown. Finished size is 58" x 66".



Maybe you have a favorite or go-to Jelly Roll quilt pattern that you would like to share.  I will be linking up  HERE - you may want to check out some of the other quilts for inspiration and resources.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. Beautiful quilt, and that quilting design is fabulous! Your new longarmer did a wonderful job! I'd be interested to know the name of that quilting design as I think it would be very versatile.

  14. I love your design and quilt Sharon! Very simple and effective - the best kind. I've only done one JR quilt using a Bali Pop. I adore the quilt, but I really struggled because many of the strips were not a true 2-1/2". I haven't bought a JR since!

  21. Just beautiful. I'm not a lover of edge-to-edge longarm quilting, but in this case, it's perfect for that quilt. Wow!! I'd bring more quilts to her, for sure!!
