Is it possible to make this quilt without a machine? I realize it will take longer and won't be as easy but I don't own a machine and have never quilted before. I would really like my first one to be 100% hand sewn, and this pattern is so pretty!!
Yes, perfectly possible. All quilts used to be hand sewn. As you say, it will take a lot longer, but it will make a wonderful keepsake. Go for it :-)
Thank you so much for the response! I have started hand-piecing my blocks, and am wondering why people pay so much for therapy when sewing can be so relaxing?! Haha!! ;)
I totally agree !!
Love this quilt! I want to make this as my first one. I already have fabric in mind for this quilt. Can anyone tell me before i buy the pattern if it gives instructions only pertaining to jelly roll fabric? Can i convert the measurements for the jelly roll fabric to my own? Is this easily done? Thanks!
Hi Nicole.The instructions tell you how many jelly roll strips you need for each size of quilt. It is a very simple matter just to cut that number of width of fabric strips from your own choice of fabrics, and then just follow the pattern in exactly the same way as someone using a jelly roll.
Wow - very pretty! Will I need any special rulers to make this quilt - I only have a 6x24. I'm wondering if that will do the trick or if i'll need a 6.5" width. Thanks!
I have been trying to purchase the pattern for three days and it keeps saying it is a error. Can you tell me if it is not available anymore.
Wow, awesome you have a good eye for color.
I made this as my first king size quilt and it is fantastic. My quilting is a little wonky but its only for me so not fussed. Great pattern and easy to understand. I used similar colours and its looks so vibrant!
Well done, and I'm so pleased you like the pattern :-)
I made this but as a bed runner, added a two inch border then a piano key border and it turned out beautifully. I tried to add a picture on here but couldn't seem to manage it.
Sounds lovely Annie. Perhaps you could add a picture to my Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/MackandMabel so we could see it there?
Love this quilt, but just for us beginners to jellies: Not all jellies have the same number of strips in them. I purchased mine, got it home and discovered there are only 30 strips, not 40....needless to say I was disappointed that I had to make a MUCH smaller quilt than I intended! So - bear this in mind when shopping and reading patterns!
I just purchased your quilt and can't wait to get started. I am a beginner and looking over the directions and I have a question. I will be making the king size quilt and the directions say to buy 3 jelly rolls and sew them together along their length. Cut them into 6 inch strips. How do you get 143 strips?
It looks like you would take three strips, sew them lengthwise and then cut six inches off the length to make the six inch strips.
I love this and will try it soon.
What is the name of this jelly roll collection? I'd love to get a closer look. It is just BEAUTIFUL!! and I just checked out your blog and think I need to start knitting baby caps! precious!
Hello there. I am a newbie to quliting, just joined and adult education course and haave just completed a tean cosy! I am now ready to make a quilt. Love this pattern but would like to make a single bed size. would one jelly roll do?
apology for spelling, its the new key pad attachment for my ipad!
You need a total of 49 strips for this size, which means buying 2 jelly rolls (usually 40 strips in a roll). You could use up 8 of the leftover ones in the binding if you wanted it to have a scrappy lookAlternatively you could buy one jelly roll and 3 fat quarters of your favourite designs in the line.
How many jelly rolls for a queen size? Also, what is the NAME and MAKER of the jelly roll fabric shown in the Craftsy quilt??
You need 2 jelly rolls for the queen size. The fabric is a Moda Jelly Roll and it was called TradeWinds.
I love this pattern! I really like that the number of jelly rolls needed was included in each quilt size.. that is a big help to a newbie. This is my third quilt...about to quilt the top, well I should say re-quilt the top. I have made some newbie mistakes. I took one of the online classes, I think perfect piecing.... very valuable info. Not all my squares lined up nicely, but everything was measured correctly....I had used too much pressure pressing my seams and ended up stretching the fabric. I also have a new sewing machine and had run out of thread just as I started. Ran to get thread and got back to sewing. I was almost done, when I noticed my threads were starting to come undone and I had locked my stitches. I turned my quilt over and there were loops all on the back where I re-threaded... I threaded my machine like my old one...oopsie. Well, at least it was easy to rip those seams. I think I will alter the quilting a bit so that my mistakes won't be as noticeable. So now that I have figured out my mistakes. I am making one for my brother... I found a cool southwestern jelly roll and bought two. I am using a light beige instead of the white and I think I'll make a mini one for his dog.
how many jelly rolls would a king size need?
You need 83 strips for the king size, so that means buying 3 jelly rolls. A cheaper way to do it would be to buy 2 jelly rolls (that's 80 strips) and a quarter yard of one of the fabrics in the jelly roll.
Please see my query about a queen, above. LOVE that you gave a "cheaper" way TIP. That's really great "customer service" in these times. You are to be commended!
I want to make this in queen size but I will substitute a dark color for the white...
Nice idea. That will look great!
How much of the 'white' or 'dark, in this case' yardage for a queen size?
and a king size?
I'm new at this and like Julie I too have the same skill's as Julie does ....Quilting is new to me and so is the lingo flippen heck Jelly Rolly's .Layer cake's, Turnovers. you would think your in a bakery and not in a quilt shop ; This quilt is lovey I haven't used a Jelly Roll yet but I love the colour's in a Roll with them being all from the same line...Its just smashing the idea...My mum worked for Marks and Spencer's I remember my teacher getting very peaved at me because she couldnt teach me any thing I didn't know about sewing....lol I returned back to Canada after 6 wks hol in the uk 3 sizes larger at the age of 15 teacher in class asked that we made our self a dress for the fashion show in the Dec of that school yr.....I did but two days before the Fashion show I was told I had to redo a dress because the one I made was way to big due to me loosing all the weight I had put on while in the UK ...lol she was always trying to loose weight I dont think she liked me to well because of all this ....thank you Julie .....lol Julie In Canada

Does anyone know what size the quilt is in the picture?
The one in the photo measures 60" x 76"
Hello, I live in New Zealand. Please explain to me a jelly roll. I am a reasonably new quilter !!! What size are the squares, strips and the small squares in the white strips.
A jelly roll is a pack of 2 1/2" strips cut by width of fabric, 40 to 42". They are usually from a single line so they easily coordinate. A honey bun is 1 1/2" by width of fabric. A layer cake is a stack of 10" squares, usually 40 to 42. I recently bought one that has 68 squares (yeah). A charm pack is a stack of 5" squares. All of these may include several of the same fabric within the line. There are even solid white or colored packages. It saves a lot of time cutting and people are getting very creative making patterns. If you can get youtube, pull up the "jelly roll race". It might give you some ideas. Hope this helps. Wish I could come visit, I hear New Zealand is spectacular!
Thank you so much for answering this so succinctly for me. A jelly roll usually has 40 strips in it, but do check the labels, some have less. The pattern tells you how many strips you need for each of the sizes
very nice ,. iv made one similar to this . love color choice
Does anyone know if the lap quilt and twin sizes call for one jelly roll or two?
I think its one large jelly roll but I would buy two the extra fabric can be used to add to a different quilt...
The first three sizes just use one jelly roll, the twin and queen sizes need two
I used two, because I like a scrappy binding and wanted to pick and choose the strips.
two isn't bad for queen. I wonder if they tell us how much white is needed for the front AND the backing? That's going to be a lot of white to buy! I think I might have enough of other (older and not being used) fabrics to piece a backing, since I'm planning on a queen to stay on my bed :)
this is just beautiful.....would love to make it....my Gramma was a quilter out of necessity and it also was a great way for her to you her artistic flair!!!
It is very simple I have a jelle roll and I was not sure what to do with, it s a good one
you eat it dont you.....hehehehe!!!
I really like that
It looks very easy and yet it is so pretty.
The part that I'm not going to like, or do well at, is all the white strips with 'corner stones', they never line up with my blocks :(
