Jelly Roll Quilts - Pam Lintott



We always love Log Cabin designs but this one we really love because with straight lines you can create the illusion of circles. This is done by cutting the background strips narrower than the jelly roll strips. We chose to have lots of different background fabrics but it would look equally good using just one background fabric. We used a gorgeous blue range designed by Edyta Sitar.

Vital Statistics

Quilt size: 60in x 60in (152.5cm x 152.5cm)

Block size: 12in square (finished)

Number of blocks: 25

Setting: 5 x 5 blocks


One jelly roll OR forty 2¹⁄2in strips cut across the width of the fabric

2¹⁄4yds (2m) of background fabric (or nine long quarters for a scrappier background)

¹⁄2yd (50cm) of binding fabric (or use six spare jelly roll strips to make a scrappy binding)


Choose thirty-four jelly roll strips for the quilt. These need to be darker than the background fabric. The remaining six strips can be used for a scrappy binding if desired (see Step 13).

Jelly roll strips

Cut each of the thirty-four jelly roll strips into the following (and keep the pieces together).

Three 2¹⁄2in squares.

Three 2¹⁄2in x 3¹⁄2in rectangles.

Three 2¹⁄2in x 5¹⁄2in rectangles.

Background fabric

Cut fifty 1¹⁄2in strips across the width of the fabric (or, if using nine long quarters, cut each long quarter into six 1¹⁄2in strips). You need fifty 1¹⁄2in strips in total. Subcut each of the fifty strips as follows.

Two 1¹⁄2in x 6¹⁄2in.

Two 1¹⁄2in x 5¹⁄2in.

Two 1¹⁄2in x 3¹⁄2in.

Two 1¹⁄2in x 2¹⁄2in.

Binding fabric

If you are not using the spare jelly roll strips to make a scrappy binding, cut seven 2¹⁄2in wide strips across the width of the binding fabric.


1 Working with squares and rectangles cut from the same jelly roll strip, sew a 1¹⁄2in x 2¹⁄2in background rectangle to a 2¹⁄2in jelly roll square. Press in the direction shown in the diagram.


If you are using different background fabrics, you can choose how scrappy an effect you want to create. We chose our background rectangles randomly and tried not to have the same fabrics next to each other.

2 Sew a 1¹⁄2in x 3¹⁄2in background rectangle to the right-hand side of the unit. Press as shown.

3 Sew a 2¹⁄2in x 3¹⁄2in jelly roll rectangle to the unit as shown and press.

4 Sew a 2¹⁄2in x 5¹⁄2in jelly roll rectangle to the unit as shown and press.

5 Sew a 1¹⁄2in x 5¹⁄2in background rectangle to the unit as shown and press.

6 Sew a 1¹⁄2in x 6¹⁄2in background rectangle to the unit as shown and press.

7 Repeat with all remaining squares and rectangles from the same jelly roll to make three quarter-blocks from one jelly roll strip.

8 Repeat with all thirty-four jelly roll strips to make a total of 100 quarter-blocks.

9 Choose four quarter-blocks and sew together as shown to create one block, pinning at the seam intersections to ensure a perfect match. Press the work. Repeat to make twenty-five blocks.

10 Lay out the twenty-five blocks into five rows of five blocks. When happy with the layout sew the rows together pinning at every seam intersection. Press the seams of alternate rows in opposite directions so the seams will nest together nicely when sewing the rows together.

11 Sew the rows together, again pinning at all seam intersections. Press well.


12 Your quilt top is now complete. Make a quilt sandwich of the quilt top, the wadding (batting) and the backing. Quilt as desired and then bind to finish.

13 To make a scrappy binding, cut each of the six jelly roll strips allocated for the binding into four pieces, mix them up and sew them together into a continuous length, making sure you do not sew rectangles of the same fabric next to each other. (Six strips is rather tight, so feel free to add a bit extra.) Now make your double-fold binding.


For those familiar with our patterns, you will know we normally use ‘just one jelly roll’ for each quilt design. We are ringing the changes with this quilt as one jelly roll wasn’t enough! This is a classic Trip Around the World design brought up to date with subtle shades of aqua, pink, green and yellow, designed by Tanya Whelan. You need four similar sets of sixteen strips for each of the four quarters of this quilt, otherwise you might lose the distinct design. We used four identical jelly babies (twenty jelly roll strips in each baby), which was absolutely perfect, but two jelly rolls will work. You need to sort them a little more but artistic licence can be used. If you press your seams as we have suggested, there really is no need for pinning, as your seams will butt together nicely.

Vital Statistics

Quilt size: 64in x 64in (162.5cm x 162.5cm)

Quarter quilt size: 32in square (finished)

Number of blocks: 4

Setting: 2 x 2 blocks


Two jelly rolls OR four jelly babies OR eighty 2¹⁄2in strips cut across the width of the fabric

A scrappy binding can be made from excess jelly roll strips


Divide your jelly rolls into four sets of sixteen strips, ensuring each set has similar colours. Each set will make one quarter of your quilt. Using four identical jelly babies is easier as you know you have four strips of each fabric. Spend some time deciding in which order to sew your strips together. To assist in your decision, note that strip 1 will be the top left corner fabric – we used aqua. Strip 15 becomes the centre fabric of the quilt, surrounded by strip 14. Strip 16 (orange) is the only fabric that has a full ‘round’ and has no repeat.

Reserve seven of the spare jelly roll strips for a scrappy binding.


1 Once you have decided on the order of your strips, sew strips 1 and 2 right sides together down the length. Then sew strip 3 to strip 2, making sure you sew in the opposite direction. This will prevent your strip unit bowing. Continue to add strips until all sixteen strips are sewn together. This will make one quarter of your quilt.

2 Press each seam in the opposite direction
