5 Fun (and Completely FREE!) Jelly Roll Quilting Patterns

Do you need to make a quilt quickly? One way to shorten the quilting process is to use pre-cut fabrics. A Jelly Roll is a pre-cut collection of quilting fabric that has been cut into strips that measure 2.5” by the width of fabric (approximately 40" - 42”). Jelly Rolls are the perfect way to get a sampling of all the prints in a fabric line or collection. They often feature 40 strips of fabric wrapped tightly together, though the overall number varies per company.

Do you have a Jelly Roll but aren’t sure how to use it? Here are 5 FREE Jelly Roll quilting patterns you'll love!
