Free Pattern Friday – Jelly Roll 1600

What is 1,600 inches long when it starts and finishes 48” x 64”? The Jelly Roll 1,600 Quilt!

Heirloom Creations shared their tutorial on how to create a quick quilt using all the strips in a jelly roll sewn together! They even had “Jelly Roll Races” to see who could finish the sewing the fastest and one woman finished it in 35 minutes!

This is a great way to do a fast, fun project with a jelly roll that you just aren’t sure how to use.

Curious as to how they did this?? Watch the Missouri Star Quilt Co Tutorial!

Here is a photo tutorial that might be helpful if the video goes too fast.

  1. very nice, thanks for the idea.as for the lady who did hers in 35 minutes,she musta had the peddle to the metal.

  2. I just made one from Christmas and I did stitch in the ditch on every other row. I then hand quilted the border in a scroll design. The fabric I used had a lot of gold metallic so I used one strand of gold metallic embroidery thread for the quilting. It turned out beautifully.

  3. Thanks for the plug!
    I also made a queen size version, which can be found here http://happierthanabirdquilts.blogspot.com/2011/07/spiffing-stripes.html
    I can’t remember for sure but it took the equivalent of 3 or 4 jelly rolls to make it, I bought yardage and cut the 2 1/2″ strips. And I added a solid lime green stop border than additional borders in the same style as the 1600 strips. As you can see on the back, I had some left over strips I pieced into the backing.
