1600 Jelly Roll Quilt Top


I saw this goofy video in a tweet from Chawne, and really wanted to try it. I mean, a quilt top in under 3 hours? Impossibly awesome, right? It would be great to be able to give these away to friends and family as a christmas gift! So I went and got a Moda Jelly Roll (Oliver + S 'City Weekend'), and got to it! You can find instructions to make your own here: 1600 Jelly Roll Quilt. I'm doing my best to work through some of my sewing and knitting stash. I really don't want to have to move it all again, and that means that I have a year to cut it down to a more manageable size.

  1. That is so simple and clever and looks great! I bought a jelly roll ages ago but never thought about what to do with it. I think I have a plan!

  3. Oh! Maybe it's time to pull out the sewing machine that has been in hibernation.
