New Ways with Jelly Rolls - Pam Lintott

Return to Sender

This striking quilt, with its clean, contemporary layout, is quick and easy to make and uses all but four strips of the jelly roll. We used one of the distinctive ranges designed by V&Co for Moda, which has stunning geometric designs. These fabrics and the geometric layout we used for the quilt creates a very fresh, modern design.

The four spare jelly roll strips were put to good use by making four larger versions of the block and piecing them into the backing fabric to create a totally different, minimalist look on the reverse of the quilt.

Return to Sender Quilt


Sorting the jelly roll strips:

Choose thirty-six jelly roll strips for the blocks and pair up the strips to form eighteen pairs.

Four jelly roll strips are spare and can be used for the pieced quilt back.

Cutting the jelly roll strips:

Cut each of the thirty-six jelly roll strips as follows.

Two rectangles 2¹⁄2in x 12¹⁄2in.

Two 2¹⁄2in squares.

One rectangle 2¹⁄2in x 8¹⁄2in.

Cutting the sashing fabric:

Cut twelve 2in strips lengthways down the fabric.

Set eight of these strips aside for the horizontal sashing, which will be trimmed to size later.

Take the four remaining 2in strips and subcut thirty-one rectangles each 2in x 6¹⁄2in for the vertical sashing strips.

Cutting the binding fabric:

Cut six 2¹⁄2in strips across the width of the fabric.

Making the Quilt

Making the blocks

1 Working with one pair of jelly roll strips at a time, sew the 2¹⁄2in squares of one fabric to both ends of the 2¹⁄2in x 8¹⁄2in rectangle of the other fabric. Press the seams as shown. Sew the 2¹⁄2in x 12¹⁄2in rectangles to the top and bottom.

2 Repeat with the remaining fabric to form the second block in the same way.

3 Repeat this process with all eighteen pairs of jelly roll strips to create thirty-six blocks.

4 Four blocks need to be cut in half to create half blocks that fit into the ends of rows 2, 4, 6 and 8. After the blocks have been cut in half an extra ¹⁄2in needs to be trimmed from the top, as shown, to create the right size.

Assembling the quilt

5 Create rows 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 by sewing four blocks together with three sashing strips in between. Press the seams in the direction shown.

6 Create rows 2, 4, 6 and 8 by sewing three blocks and two half blocks together with four sashing strips in between. Press as shown.

7 Measure the rows and trim the horizontal sashing strips to size. It is important they all measure the same. Sew the rows together with the sashing strips in between. Press the seams.

Quilting and finishing

8 Your quilt top is now complete. You can now make a quilt sandwich as normal with your wadding (batting) and backing fabric, ready for quilting. Alternatively, you could piece the back of the quilt as we did by referring to the pieced backing instructions that follow. We made our quilt reversible and incorporated left-over jelly roll strips into our backing.


You can, of course, use any backing fabric, but remember to make it larger than your quilt front. When longarm quilting we like our backings to be 4in larger on all sides.

9 After quilting, sew the six binding strips into a continuous length and bind the quilt to finish.

We wanted our quilting to reflect the modern nature of our quilt, so we chose a quilting design called Modern Dew Drops by Anita Shackelford, with vertical lines and small circles that continue the geometric theme.

Making a Pieced Quilt Back

Cutting the jelly roll strips

1 Cut each of the four remaining jelly roll strips into the following pieces.

Two rectangles 2¹⁄2in x 18¹⁄2in.

Two 2¹⁄2in squares.

Cutting the backing fabric

2 Cut two lengths of fabric each 62in and subcut them as follows for the background.

Subcut the first length into three rectangles 12¹⁄2in x 62in lengthways down the fabric.

Subcut the second length into two 7¹⁄2in x 62in rectangles and four 6¹⁄2in x 62in rectangles.

Subcut each of the four 6¹⁄2in wide strips into one rectangle 6¹⁄2in x 13in and one rectangle 6¹⁄2in x 32in.

From the excess fabric cut four rectangles 2¹⁄2in x 14¹⁄2in for the centres of the four blocks.

Assembling the backing

3 Make the blocks in the same way as the blocks for the front of the quilt, using the jelly roll 2¹⁄2in x 18¹⁄2in rectangles and 2¹⁄2in squares and the 2¹⁄2in x 14¹⁄2in backing fabric rectangles for the centres of the blocks.

4 Referring to the diagram, sew the backing fabric rectangles together inserting the blocks in the positions shown.

We chose a gorgeous backing fabric in a grey and white pebble design called Flurry by Dashwood Studios. We had four jelly roll strips left over from the quilt top and these made up four large blocks using the backing fabric as the centre of the blocks. We liked the fact that the back of our quilt looked sophisticated compared to the fun colours of the quilt top. The quilt front and back were made by the authors and longarm quilted by The Quilt Room.

Stars and Stripes

This quilt caused us a dilemma because Nicky preferred the quilt back and would have liked it to be our quilt top. It also used more of the jelly roll strips – twenty-eight strips, whereas our quilt top needed only twelve strips. Our quilt with stars won the day on the basis that it required lengthier instructions – we suppose that’s as good a reason as any! It’s also a great example of a modern design.

Our quilt back is a brilliant pattern to make and has got to win our prize for the quickest and easiest quilt in the book, yet it still manages to look gorgeous. This is a great example of when you are working with lovely fabrics you can often let them do the work for you! These are called
