NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

We woke up this morning with the happy realization that the first annual National Jelly Roll Day had finally arrived.  A banner day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone here at RCQ and all our guests. 

Now that the daylight has vanished from the Illinois prairie we can, with Moda Fabrics United Notions'  permission, release  the much anticipated #projectjellyroll patterns here for you as free downloads

A BIG thank you to Brigette Heiland of Zen Chic and Moda for providing  these NSAJRD patterns.

To start you off - here is a little gift from RockingChairQuilts.com : A Jelly Roll Tip Card and pre-cut yardage chart for you to download and keep as a handy reference.  If you are nearby and can come into the shop we will give you one when you buy a Jelly Roll (while supplies last)

HERE ARE 10 IDEAS FOR JELLY ROLL STRIPS AND SCRAPS:

  1.  Make strip sets for 9-patch blocks
  2.  Make strip sets for 4-patch blocks
  3.  Cut strips 4 1/2" long. Use with 2 1/2" squares (Moda Candy squares work great) to create scrappy Flying Geese blocks.
  4.  Sew strips together for a scrappy back.
  5.  Make "framed" 9-patch blocks (1 Jelly Roll strip is enough to frame a 6" finished 9-patch.
  6. Make a "coins" quilt using left over Jelly Roll pieces.
  7. Make Log Cabin blocks.
  8. Make piano key borders for a scrappy quilt.
  9. Make kitchen accessories: pot holders, place mats, mug rugs, or coasters.
  10. Make scrappy binding by cutting Jelly Roll strips into fourths and then sewing together as many pieces as needed for the length desired.
