Announcing June's Jelly Roll Sew Along

Hello everyone!
Next week I am starting another FREE sew along project!
The Pre-cut of choice we will use this time is a Jelly Roll.
(40 strips of assorted prints 2.5" wide x WOF)

Or..for all of you savvy STASH BUSTERS out there - haul out your fabric bins and stay tuned, this is also a great Scrap Quilt project.

This month's project is not a real Mystery Quilt.
The Quilt we are making is called Willow Weave.
I created a beautiful "updated" basket weave design
based on an old traditional pattern.
It's super fast & simple with a lovely surprise twist.
The finished size is 60" x 72" but you can certainly make this smaller or larger.

The Sew along for June is Beginner Friendly.
Just one easy block with no matching seams in it.
Arrangement tricks make this a quick yet complex looking quilt.
Seriously, how is this for an easy block layout....

And the material list is simple too here is what you need:
* 1 Jelly Roll
* 1-3/4 yards of background fabric
* 1/2 yard of binding fabric

Instructions will be posted once a week on Wednesdays - beginning next week on June 5th. I will add a weekly Link UP at the bottom of each post for participants. If you'd like us to visit - add your blog link once you post your progress.

I've provided a Sew Along button and my blog link if you'd like to grab them from my sidebar for your blog. (additionally you will need batting and backing appropriate to the finished size of your quilt top)

every quilt tells a story....


  1. Looks intriguing Doreen...can't wait to get started!
    Have a wonderful week...

    Hugs, Nancy

  2. I am going to sew along even though I am supposed to be working on UFOs!

  3. Oh joy, a Jelly Roll I have (didn't have a layer cake) and this would be a great stash buster as well. Looking forward to making this one. Fun! Thanks Doreen.

  4. How Fun ! A jelly roll quilt this time ! I have the perfect jelly roll for this quilt :-D

    I am really excited about getting started on this quilt

    Thanks Doreen

  5. I'm in...this will be my first QAL with you...cant wait to get started!

  6. Julianne twisted my arm (from all the way across the USA to get in.) I'm in too!

  7. this will be a fun quilt to make I have made a few of these for my DD once when she was little and then another larger one when she was homesick at college and wanted a quilt...

  8. Sounds good, I have a jelly roll "over the rainbow" from Edyta Sitar. So I'm in... and so excited.

  9. Could you use a white jelly roll for the background color or do you need the yardage?

  10. How scrappy can this go? I have lots of little pieces of batiks friends have gifted me for my Jane Stickle quilt that turned out to be too small. I know one dimension needs to be 2 1/2 inches but how small can the other be and still be usable?

  11. This sounds like fun...I'll try to keep up with you!

  12. You got me on "no matching seams." ;-)

  13. Count me in, looking forward to Wednesday.

  14. Sounds like fun, don't really need to start something new but what the heck.

  15. I'll echo Gari, you had me at no matching seams! I've had a jelly roll occupying a spot for nearly two years and it's time to use it!
