Jelly Roll Racin'


Confession:  I've never made a Jelly Roll Race Quilt.  Well, before last week anyway.  I just wasn't a fan.

But then the shop I work for needed one made and I volunteered.  I did a bit of searching on Pinterest and found a few that I loved that had these separating squares between the strips.  And I started to be converted.

When I sat down to start this quilt, I also started a movie.  I finished the quilt top before the movie was over.  No lie.  These Jelly Roll Race quilts really are that fast.

I quilted it the next day, using swirls and a paisley type design that sort of echoed what was in a few of the prints.  (I think all of these prints are from the Posh Pumpkins line by Sandy Gervais.)

The backing is a nice, soft flannel which will be perfect come Fall!

I know each Jelly Roll Race Quilt finishes at a different size - mine is 56" x 63" and I used 42 (2.5") strips and 41 (2.5") squares.  You can find the tutorial for the Jelly Roll Race quilt here.  Have you done the Jelly Roll Race??
