Adapted Jelly Roll Quilt (now titled the Four Corners Quilt)

jelly roll race adaptation

The tutorial I had originally written for this quilt top did not have enough details. So, it is under construction. Please feel free to leave a comment with your email address if you want to be alerted when I finish the tutorial.  The new tutorial is finally up!  Check it out here.

I love jelly roll race quilts and have made a TON of them as gifts! I actually just started working on a similar variation of it, too! I've got three started where I plan to proceed as normal until the quilt is *8* strips wide, then cut the looooong strip into squares. I plan to take those squares, then alternate how they're oriented (some with the strips vertical, some horizontal) and add sashing between them. I haven't done sashing before so I think it'll be a good skill builder and a fun variation on this quick, easy quilt :)

Thanks for sharing - and for the pat on the back about someone else having a similar idea to me!

I've never had a jelly roll to make on of those quilts but it sounds fun!! Yours looks great and well done for chopping it up, the quarters look perfect :)

I've heard of a JR race but never realised it was a pattern rather than a 'ready, steady, go!' type of thing! Yours looks great!

I just heard about the JRR quilts yesterday and finished mine today - also in Boutique! I like the way you divided it into quarters with the strips going different directions. I can't decide if I want to try it or leave it as it is. Your quilt is lovely though, and a great inspiration to try something different. Thanks!

Ohhhh this is fun!!!! Thanks for sharing!! Seriously I'm going to try this.

Ok I have one question, why did you add five? Am I missing something. I thought the jrr was just a jelly roll.

i love the quilt, but how did you sew the center block to the four square block sections. I'm not getting it?????? Why do you need the extra strips?????

Thank you so much, this is the only jelly roll "race" quilt worthy of a jelly roll. I love it, but so confused on how to construct. Making for my son's girlfriend for college in September. I am trying to figure out how to get you my email address.

silverdog said...

now I figured out the email. Why 5 extra stips and how to sew the center square to the big square blocks?
