Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt

Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt


In this series of workshops we will make a beautiful lap quilt measuring approximately 56” square.
This quilt is made using one jelly roll (or 40 x 2 ½” wide strips), 2 ½ metres of background fabric, plus binding, wadding and backing fabric.
This sampler quilt is made up of 4 x quarter blocks each comprising of:

  • Japanese Star Block
  • Crow’s Foot Bloc
  • Love in the Mist Block
  • Fan Block
  • Flying Geese Block
  • Four Patch unit Block

In making the blocks you learn and use various techniques including making Half Square Triangles from a Jelly Roll, Flying Geese, Four Patch Blocks and Nesting Joints – accurate cutting and piecing is essential in making this quilt.
Due to the random nature of fabrics in a jelly roll careful thought needs to go into planning which fabrics go where in your quilt to maintain a random effect. Prior to the workshop sort jelly roll strips and roughly plan which strips you will use in each block
