Five Friday Favorites: Jelly Roll Quilt Tutorials

Welcome to another installment of my 5 Friday Favorites!  Today I'm sharing my favorite Jelly Roll Quilt Tutorials.

I always have a jelly roll or two (or seven) in my stash and I'm constantly on the look out for great ways to use them!  The five tutorials I'm sharing today are my favorites - and ones I'm hoping to use in the next year to be able to use some of those favorite jelly rolls that are just sitting there on my shelves.

Here they are (in no particular order!)

#1:  Sunny Skies

The Sunny Skies tutorial is actually a video tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co.  But it was this version (shown above) from Megan Pitz (Canoe Ridge Creations) that caught my eye!  You can watch the video tutorial here and read the blog post about it here.  I'm hoping to make a Christmas version of this sometime soon.

#2:  Positively Perfect

The Positively Perfect quilt is one of my all time favorites from the Moda Bake Shop.  I'm still (and have been for awhile) in love with plus blocks.  April Rosenthal's tutorial makes a great size quilt - 54" x 66".  How sweet would this be in all pinks?  

#3:  Ins and Outs

I love that this quilt was made with a jelly roll and then some low volume scraps.  I definitely have enough low vol scraps to make one of these.  The quilt is designed by Jo Kramer (blogs at Jo's Country Junction)  This is technically not a tutorial, but they do have a free, downloadable / printable pattern that's as easy to follow as a tutorial.   You can read about the quilt here, along with the link to the free pattern. 

#4:  Cross Terrian

This is another Moda Bake Shop tutorial, this time by Lee Heinrich (Freshly Pieced).  It's a clever way to use a Jelly Roll - and I mean every. last. bit.  See that cute little pieced border?  Those are the leftover bits from the Jelly Roll strips.  I love how scrappy this quilt looks too.

#5:  To The Point

I love when Jelly Roll quilts don't look like they're made with a Jelly Roll.  This To The Point tutorial by Amy Gibson (Stitchery Dickory Dock Blog) shows you how to make the blocks, and then gives you SIX other layout options.  So awesome.

Looking for more ideas?  I have a Pinterest board dedicated just to Jelly Roll quilts!  Have a great weekend!
