FREE PATTERN! - Check Out the Jelly Roll Jam Quilt!

My town is filled to the brim with springtime tulips, bluebells and forsythia, and I thought now is a good time to share a beautiful FREE quilt pattern for the "Jelly Roll Jam Quilt" developed by Sherri McConnell for The Fat Quarter Shop (you can find a link to the pattern near the bottom of this post).

Sherri used a "jelly roll" fabric pack called Giggles by Me & My Sister at Moda, or your can also cut forty 2-1/2-inch wide strips from your favorite Moda fabrics . . .

The Jelly Roll Jam Quilt is a shortcut quilt that is fast and easy to assemble and looks bright and full of spring.  Don't you agree?  It's also a great project to use up small pieces of Moda fabric from your stash!  I love Sherri McConnell's fabric selections and combinations, and I think these quilts would look wonderful on a table with a bouquet of flowers or in a child's crib. Here's some up-close pics of two versions of the quilt by Sherri:

If you are like me, I always learn better when I can watch a video.  If that also applies to you, you can see the video of how to make the Jelly Roll Jam Quilt here, or you can click on the television screen below!

I hope this has inspired you to get excited about a new quilting project, and see how easy it is to use jelly roll fabric packs!  I'm headed back to my workroom to pull out some fabrics and see what color combinations will look best for my own Jelly Roll Jam Quilt.  In the meantime, Happy Stitchin'!  --xoxo, Melanie


  1. Beautiful quilts. Love jelly rolls and layer cakes and charm packs

  2. Irena, I'm so sorry--somehow I missed your post until today! Thank you for commenting. Yes, I too love charm packs! --Melanie

  3. Quick question.....I always wash my fabrics before cutting and sewing, should I do the same with the jellyroll? Seems odd since so little.
