Immerse yourself in the sumptuous world of Jelly Rolls with 17 exciting quilting projects. Turn gorgeous Jelly Rolls into fabulous quilts, each of which can be made from just one roll. Jelly rolls are the new fat quarter bundle! Moda Fabrics introduced jelly rolls to showcase new fabric ranges. They consist of 2 ½ inch strips of 40 colour-coordinated fabric, rolled up to create a solid disk and tied with a ribbon. This book will encourage you to undo that ribbon and let it loose to reveal all those different fabrics. Just flick through the pages and see the quilts that you can make with just one roll! Or perhaps you have fabric stashed away that is just waiting to be cut up into 2 ½ inch wide strips.
Jelly Roll Quilts is the first book to show quilters the best ways to use these desirable, laboursaving fabric packs. Pam and Nicky Lintott show how to make 15 quilts; each perfectly suited to the colour-coordinated jelly rolls and includes variations in colour, style and size for each project. With names like Bars of Gold, Pandora’s Box, Starlight Express and Blue Lagoon, the quilts demonstrated in Jelly Roll Quilts are on the cutting edge of the craft.
There is a whole General Techniques section that will cover all of the useful advice you need for creating a quilt: rotary cutting equipment, the importance of maintaining an accurate seam allowance, including a useful seam allowance test, pressing, pinning, chain piecing, instructions for adding borders, removing dog ears, quilting stitches, tips for setting a quilt diagonally or ‘on point’, as well as a useful table showing fabric amounts when not using a jelly roll.
Jelly roll quilts are suitable for quilters of all skill levels, especially those quilters with a passion for a variety of fabrics. Step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams ensure that untying your beautifully rolled fabric will be the first step to quilting heaven!
Follow expert quilters, Pam and Nicky’s, unique advice on making the most of this fresh approach to fabric, as well as tips on adapting the quilts to your existing stashes. Be inspired by these colourful quilts to create your own.
