Easy Beginner Jelly Roll Quilt Tutorial

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Everyone!

Today is a fun tutorial!  This is a super easy jelly roll quilt… like a great first quilt top tutorial type of project.  All you need is a jelly roll pre-cut, some coordinating thread and a sewing machine!


Here are some of my favorite options for jelly rolls.  Pick an ombre solid pattern or a bold fabric combo because the construction is so simple, that will really make it pop!

I chose an Amy Butler jelly roll because I love how colorful and patterned her designs are.  The great thing about a jelly roll quilt is that you can use the whole line of fabric!


I often get asked what sewing machine I have… here it is and I love it ;).

Jelly Roll Quilt Written Instructions:

*This instructions were so simple, I didn’t end up doing a pdf download for it, but if you would prefer that, let me know.

1.Unroll jelly roll and arrange how you would like for it to look, or just place in a pile to grab randomly.

2.Place right sides together and sew 2 strips together lengthwise using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

3.Grab the next strip and placing right sides together, sew in the opposite direction of the previous strip.

4.Continue until all rows have been sewn.

5.Press. Press seam open, or to 1 side based on your preference.

6. Fold in half “hamburger style” and then again so that you can trim the uneven edges.  Do your best, but if it’s not perfect, don’t keep trimming because you can adjust later after the quilting step. Not bad right?

Hope you liked this quick jelly roll quilt tutorial!
