    Jelly Roll Race Quilt

    I am going to order the Daily Deal today and get two jelly rolls for the price of one. I plan to make a couple of jelly roll race quilts. The instructions come only on video, and there are no printed instructions. I don't know how much fabric to buy for the edges or the back. I can always figure it out later, but it would be nice to grab the appropriate fabric if it goes on sale. Has anyone made one of the jelly roll quilts? Are the directions printed in any of the old Block issues?

    check the blog site for jelly roll quilts. They have the transcripts of the tutorials and sometimes they add extra information. Just click the button just to the left of quilt tutorials in the header.

      You can probably just Google Jelly Roll Race quilt and get the instructions too.

        My understanding is that today's DD is NOT two jelly rolls for the price of one. Rather, you can order two jelly rolls at the DD price instead of just one like normal.

          This is true... and it's sold out. You can order two at the sale price.... or 22.95 each.

          I didn't like it.

            I have made dozens of jelly roll quilts. They end up being 50-55" wide and 64" long. I figure out how wide I want my side strips, and multiply by 7, because that opus how many strips it takes to make a border. I would buy 3-1/2 or 4 yards for the back.

              You are all exactly right that it is not a 2 for one daily deal. It is a 2 for daily deal price. However, I waited too long and they are all gone. Oh well. The Jelly Roll Race is produced only in video format, not written format.

                  Hi,

                  Versions of the jellyroll race pattern have appeared in the Block magazines and they also have patterns that can be purchased. Below is the link to the digital version of the jellyroll race II pattern.

                    Re: Jelly Roll Race Quilt

                    OK, for this project what you’re going to need is a Jelly Roll lots of us have Jelly Rolls and we’re not exactly sure what to do with them sometimes, and this is a fun one, “The Pezzy Print” by American Jane, and you’re also going to need your scissors. That’s really all you’re going to need to complete this project.

                    OK, so what we’re going to do is we’re going to open this Jelly Roll and we’re going to leave it intact the way it comes on the roll. So, we’re going to find the end of it here. There we go, and we’re just going to open it up like this and lay it down, and we’re going to start sewing these together. So, what I’m going to do is I’m going to bring my sewing machine over here.

                    You’re going to want to make sure you have several bobbins wound because really all you do is sew. I mean you’re just going to sew, sew, sew, sew, sew, sew. We’re going to attach all these together. You’re going to bring your Jelly Roll over here by your sewing machine and these strips are going to go together just as they came off the Jelly Roll. We’re going to put them together just as they came off and we’re going to put them together like this and we’re going to sew corner to corner on the forty-five. (The opposite forty-five degree angle from what Jenny is pointing out. Simply sew your strips together like you would for binding.) So, you just want to make sure that you sew corner to corner on the forty-five. We’re going to sew all these strips together. So, you’re going to have 1600 inches of strips that go way out there! I mean it’s just going to be this one long Jelly Roll strip. So, let’s go back and let me show you how we do this. How we attach these, so you can see them real easy.

                    OK, so, get comfy behind your sewing machine. Again we’re going to sew our strips together one after the other, after the other, and we’re just going to sew at the forty-five from corner to corner. This isn’t rocket science. It doesn’t have to be perfect. So, we don’t have to draw the line and all that. We’re just going over to our sewing machine and we’re going to attach these and just “eyeball it” just straight across and sew from corner to corner.

                    So, here’s what we do. So now the next, you’re going to take this end piece right here and you’re going to put it over here, and you’re just going to keep attaching these strips. So here comes the next one, and then the next one, and we just keep attaching these like this. So, as you get to the end of your strip you’re going to reach down and you’re going to grab ahold of the tail end of that and you’re going to lay it up here and we’re sewing these right sides together.

                    This is really the hardest part right here. So, you grab your tail, lay it up with your color, your bright side up. Then you put your bright side down toward it, right sides together. Turn it and put it under here and sew it, and we’re just going to keep doing this.

                    OK! So, we’re through with the first part. So, now what we have to do is cut all these apart. We’ve got this great string of them going here. We just chain pieced them right through. So let’s grab our scissors. Now here’s what we do. We’re going to trim this off like this and clip it, okay? So, we’ve got to do this to the whole roll. So we’re trimming and clipping, and they’re all right there together. Trimming about a quarter of an inch, so, let’s get doing that!

                    All right! This is the last one! Whew! That was some work right there. OK, so the next thing you’re going to do is you’re going to cut off about 18” of this strip and I say about because it just really doesn’t matter so we’re right there. The reason you do this, and this just goes away! The reason you do this is you want your staggers to be in the center, not right on the ends.

                    OK, so, now what you do is you take this piece and you’re going to find the end of your strip which is going to take some time… OK, whew! There we go! Here we are at the end, then you’re going to put these right sides together and you’re going to sew those two strips together. You know when guilds do this, this is where the racing begins. You know you get all that first start done where you’re sewing them at the forty-five, and then everybody has their two strips and then this is where the racing begins. So here we go!

                    OK! Here we are at the end! Finally, finally! These first two pieces take the longest, because you’re sewing 1600 inches now we’ve got the ends here. We’re going to open those up like this and then we’re going to find the other end. We have to go through all this. Now we’re down to 800 inches only! Of Jelly Roll strips! Now we’re going to sew these two together. Here we go. OK, so, now we’re going to put these two right sides together with these two just like this and sew again, and we’re just going to keep doing this. When we get to the end you cut that fold and bring that piece up and attach it to the front and sew all the way down. So let’s go ahead and do this a few more times.

                    I know you can’t believe it but we are down to our last row! Didn’t this go fast?! Isn’t it amazing?! All right hang on just a sec here. We’re in for the home stretch! This is the closest you’re ever going to see me to a marathon! Actually someday I’d really like to run a marathon. All right, here we go! All righty! So let me check this out, and now I’m going to cut this last one in half right here. All right, you ready for the big reveal? OK, here is our “Pezzy“ top! Look at that, how cute is that?! No planning, straight off the roll! We got some colors together, some not. It just goes like this and this is that awesome, oh, “Pezzy Print” that awesome “Pezzy Print” Jelly Roll, and in that amount of time we made this little top. It’d be fun to border it in a solid. I think I’ll do it in a solid. Maybe orange, or green, or even red. Your top is done! Just like that. It’s so much fun!

                    So a few things to watch for. Watch for your top thread not to run out. Watch for your bobbin not to run out. We have to stop and do a bobbin check every so often. Watch to make sure you’re actually sewing your rows when you think you’re sewing your rows, and other than that this is a piece of cake! We hope you enjoyed this tutorial from the Missouri Star Quilt Company!

                      Re: Jelly Roll Race Quilt

                      Here are the directions for Q/K size jelly roll race

                      Queen/King Jelly Roll Race
                      This only works on the original Jelly Roll Race and not Jelly Roll 2.
                      I made one with just 80 strips and it takes an extra step plus borders to make it work. However there is also not the 18″ waste at the beginning, so you will not cut any off.
                      To make a jelly roll race large enough for a queen bed without any borders would take 98 strips. King size would take 116 strips. And you still have to start with three separate strip piles divided equally into thirds.
                      When using two jelly rolls you must start with three groups of strips instead of just one long one.
                      Open your jelly rolls and leave them in the order they came in with the second jelly roll under the first.
                      Put the first 26 strips in your first pile.
                      Cut off 29 inches on the 27th strip and add to the end of the first pile.
                      Start pile 2 with the remaining piece of the 27th strip and add 26 more strips.
                      Cut off 14 1/2 inches of the 54th strip and add to end of pile two.
                      Start pile 3 with the rest of the 54th strip and add the remaining 26 strips.

                      Follow the videos direction of how to sew the strips end to end.
                      Begin with pile 1 and sew the strips end to end so that you have one giant strip that is just over 1100 inches long. Repeat with pile 2 and 3.
                      Sew those three separate piles side by side so you now have one piece 6.5 by 1100.

                      Now you can follow the regular directions of folding in half, sew down the length, and clip the end so it lies flat. Now you are 6 strips wide. Bring the ends together, sew and snip and continue to repeat until you reach the desired length.
                      You will come up with a quilt top that is approximately 69 x 96. You would need to add 8 inch borders to the sides only to make it wide enough for a queen size quilt if you 80 strips. To make a jelly roll race large enough for a queen bed without any borders would take 98 strips. King size would take 116 strips.
                      Boom! Wish granted!

                          I made one recently myself, and it measures approximately 46" x 64". This is a total of 32 rows of
                          fabric.
