Fabric Fest and a Rolie Polie Giveaway!

I’m so excited to share more of my Jelly Roll Race Quilts here today! Those of you who follow my blog know that I made a Jelly Roll Race Quilt in less than 24 hours from start to finish earlier this year, I called it my “#Instaquilt” because I Instagrammed the process of cutting fabric, stitching, getting it to the quilter, and binding it. Since then, I’ve been busy coming up with fresh ways to revise this new classic so that I can share them all with you at Riley Blake Fabric Fest here in Las Vegas.

three jelly roll race quilts

I first learned about this quilt when I was working at Quiltique, an awesome quilt shop in Henderson, just outside of Las Vegas. One of our customers shared it with me, and it was love at first stitch. I have 2 nieces and 3 nephews all born in the last 3 years (3 of them in the last 12 months), so having a fast “go to” quilt pattern is a must!

I’m going to be teaching the Jelly Roll Race Quilt at Riley Blake Fabric Fest this fall. BUT – not just the plain jelly roll race quilt. I’ve deconstructed, re-constructed, and updated the jelly roll race quilt. These variations add 10-30 minutes to the time it takes to make a regular jelly roll race quilt – and give you so much more variety! If you’ve never made a Jelly Roll Race quilt before, I’ll show you the basics. Then we’ll take it up a notch with fun ways to make the quilt your own. Let me take you through some of these new quilts I’ve stitched up…

Christmas Jelly Roll Race Quilt

This first is a Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt. If you’ve seen or done one, you can tell by the mitered seams, and the random placement of the fabric. I used 42 strips from Riley Blake’s new Christmas Fabric “A Merry Little Christmas“. Don’t you love how cheery it looks? This quilt is the perfect Christmas gift! I love giving quilts as Christmas presents, and these quilts are the best for making as gifts. They don’t take weeks to make, they look cute in any fabric, and there is very little waste. After piecing your quilt top, the only waste you have is one piece 2.5″x18”, and the little bit you trim off to square your quilt top.


This second one is so much fun! I used Riley Blake’s “Pirate Mateys” and added squares between half-strips of fabric. There are some secrets to putting this top together, but it is a lot easier than it looks, and the result is darling! I’d love to do more of these with bright colored squares that really pop against the fabric.

Pirate Jelly Roll Race Quilt

I’ve been enjoying this quilt a lot, it sits on my livingroom floor and my kids play on it all the time. My friend Nichol of A Desert Quilter quilted all of these for me, and she quilted some darling pirate motifs into this quilt top!

Appliqued Jelly Roll Race Quilt

This last one, made out of Riley Blake “Cruiser Blvd”  has me completely tickled. A Jelly Roll Race Quilt is like a deck of cards. You shuffle up the strips, stitch them together, and there is no telling where they will show up. For this quilt, I “stacked the deck.” I’ve mapped out the final locations of the strips, and I put them in the order I wanted them to give me a beautiful “solid” space to applique in. This technique is so much fun for anyone who likes to applique, who wants to super-customize a quilt, for machine embroiderers who like to have large areas to embroider on, or machine quilters who like to have space in which to stitch up quilts and really have their quilting stand out… really, just about anyone will love the options that stacking the deck gives you! Here is the whole quilt all laid out:

Applique Jelly Roll Race Quilt

My son is 4 and a half, and he loves this quilt. It is “his” quilt and he loves reading his name on it. Once you’ve deconstructed the placement of the strips in a Jelly Roll Race quilt, there are so many new possibilities that open up to you!

I still have at least one more idea up my sleeve … but I’ll wait to share that one at Fabric Fest. You’ll have to come to my class so that I can share it with you!


The base to make these quick quilts are Rolie Polies from Riley Blake. So, I’m giving away TWO Rolie Polies to one lucky winner! Just leave a comment at the end of this post letting me know which of these fast quilts you’d most like to learn more about! Make sure to include your contact information so that I can get in touch with you if you win.

  1. I’ve never made one of these before, so I would love to learn anout the basics! They all look great!

  2. ME Pendleton says

    It was very hard to choose which one but I LOVE the Christmas fabrics of the first one. My mom( who didn’t sew ) & I made. Christmas quilt when my kids were little . I’d love to make a Christmas quilt for my first grandbabys first Christmas this year .
    Thanks for a great giveaway !!!!

  3. These are such beautiful quilts! The colors in the fabric for the Winter quilt are adorable.

  4. Betty Jane says

    Love all your jellyroll quilts. But I am intregues by the pirate quilt and your placement of the gray squares. Like you said, it’s probably easier than it looks, but how did you do it?

  5. Lori Smanski says

    All of them are wonderful. I would love to make the pirate quilt.

  6. I would like to make the Jelly Roll Race Quilt, fast and fun!!

  7. Rachel Brown says

    i love the third one. My children would love a quilt with their name on it and i want to learn machine free-motion quilting. That solid area would be great for that.

  8. I really like the one where they’ve added the child’s name on top. Any child would love to have a special quilt with their name on it like that.

  9. Debra B. in CO says

    I am lovin’ all 3 of these quilts! If I were to try my hand at making one I would probably try the first one you made from ” A Merry Little Christmas”. debmutti@gmail.com

  10. I’d definitely make the 2nd quilt that has the “cornerstones” sewn at the end of each half strip. that’s a beautiful look……

    🙂 Shirley

  11. Jeanne OT says

    Love theJelly Roll Race Quilt. I have twin grandsons (2 1/2) who would really like having a quilt with their name on it. They are learning their alphabet and can recognize their names!

  12. Margaret Lawrence says

    I’d love to learn how to make the Pirate Mateys version of the Jelly Roll Race quilt. So cute with the squares between the strips!

  13. I love all of theses quilts! How quick and fun to make. My Grandkids would love it! Also a quick Christmas present idea!

  14. I love the quilt you made for your son with the space for his name. That would be the type I would like to make.

  15. edith mascia says

    I love them all but really would like to make a quilt with my ggrandson’s name on it.

  16. I love Logan’s quilt. What a beautiful keepsake to pass on to his children some day! I may not sew any longer but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate beautiful projects, like these. 🙂

  17. Jacklynn Grimm says

    I like the jelly roll quilt with the little extra squares – I would use a coordinating solid for a pop of color. I would still let it happen randomly at the end of the strip and still take off the 18″ to make it random.

  18. I really like the standard one with the diagonal seams. But I’d like to learn to plan out the placement; that could be quite useful! Thanks!

  19. I like the principle behind all of these fast quilts, but when I first saw the Logan quilt, my mind immediately saw “file folders”. Doesn’t it look like file folder tabs sticking up? It does to me, and I would like to experiement with that design. A jelly roll – or two – would be a great start!! Thanks for posting these cute quilts.

  20. Michelle Racher says

    I love all of those quilts! 🙂 If I had to pick just one, the Christmas quilt. I am going to have to make some seasonal decoration quilts soon! michelle at nechakonotionary dot com

  21. Wow! These are gorgeous! I wish I could quilt. I am so intimidated by it for some reason! Thank you for the inspiration!

    • Don’t be intimidated! Find a local quilt shop that offers a basics class – they’ll be happy to show you how it is done. But be warned! It is super addicting!! 😀

  22. I like the standard jelly roll race quilt and would love to make one. I have never made a quilt and would enjoy learning how to make it.

  23. My favorite is the jelly roll race quilt. I especially like the name on it.

  24. You are a quilting genius!! I love the one with the name on it! 🙂

  25. margaret Schindler says

    I have never made one before but I love Merry little Christmas . This looks like a fun quilt to make. thanks for the giveaway

  26. I want to try making your son’s quilt with little red riding hood:D

  27. These are so beautiful and fun! You are so dang talented!!! Love the fabrics.

  28. Patty Ghering says

    I would love to make the Christmas quilt but they are all beautiful!

  29. Wow – I love all of them – especially Logans! I’ve never made a jelly roll race quilt but would love to learn more. Wish I could be at the Fabric Fest but can’t make it. Thanks for the chance to win! : )

  30. Beautiful quilts, I never made a jelly roll quilt, but would love to. I would say my favorite was the christmas jelly roll quilt.

  31. Teresa Corradini says

    I am inspired by your Pirate quilt and the weave look. I love the idea of the block at the top of Logan’s quilt also and think I might like to combine those two elements in the next strip quilt I make. Such fun!

  32. Love, love, love Logan’s quilt! The colors are beautiful and go so well together. Quilting is just one of those things that I am just amazed at…pure talent!

    • Each of these quilts uses a single line of fabric – so the designer has created the fabric to go together. That’s the beauty of using a Jelly Roll or Rolie Polie for this – you don’t have to worry about matching the fabrics!

  33. I’m not a quilter, but love them! Those are amazing!!

  34. As someone who’s never made a quilt but always wanted to, this looks like a great place to start! I love the look of all of them, but I really love the randomness of the first one. 🙂

  35. Becky Greene says

    They are all wonderful, but I think I like the Christmas quilt the best. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!

  36. All of the quilts are gorgeous! I love the colors and the fabric. Since I’ve never owned a Jelly Roll before, I’d need to start with the basic Jelly Roll Race Quilt. Hard to believe that you can finish these so quickly. They would be great for a quilt retreat project.

    • They are so quick and easy to make! Absolutely a great retreat project. Depending on the group, you could even set it up as a real race at the retreat – everyone prepare their strips into one long strip, and then ready, set… GO!

  37. I like Logan’s quilt. I think when you can personalize something it means so much to the person you made it for. I am expecting a new grand baby in a month and what fun it would be to give it one with his or her name on.

  38. Ooooh, Logan’s quilt is SO cute. I’d love to know what method you used to put his name on it.

  39. Wow, what beautiful quilts!!! I really like the Cruiser Blvd quilt, they are all super cute. It would be so fun to win the two rolie polies from Riley Blake (I can’t find any local store where I live in Canada that sells this wonderful line of fabric). Thanks for the opportunity and good luck everyone!

  40. Cindy Smith says

    I love the 3rd quilt with Logan’s name on it. My grandsons would love their names on their quilts and it would cut down of fighting….. Love your quilts.

  41. I think Logan’s quilt is probably my fave design. I’ve yet to make a jelly roll race quilt and I love the simplicity and whimsy of the design. Thanks for the class intro and the giveaway!

  42. I love the name quilt. I have three young ones of my own and will try the name one to make “matching” quilts for my two girls! What a beautiful idea!

  43. Shelly Easton says

    I like the christmas themed one the best! I have been interested in jelly rolls for awhile!

  44. Love the second and third one! I have made one jelly roll race quilt and loved it!
    Different cuts and add in’s are a great idea! Thanks!

  45. Maria White says

    Ha! I love the idea of leaving a large block at the top for the name… sweet!!

  46. Great quilts. I especially like the one with the name. That would be my choice for learning.

  47. Ann Hunt says

    I have never made a jelly roll quilt, but since i am new to quilting it looks as if it is not too difficult to try. I especially love Logan’s and want to make one for my godchild. Thanks.

  48. I’d love to learn to make the second one with the squares.

  49. Nikki Wilson says

    I would like more information on the Pirate Mateys quilt. I think the little blocks give it more interest.

  50. The one that says Logan!!

  51. I love the Christmas one. It is so cheerful and I love how you put the name on there! I want to learn how do that. I’ve heard of these jelly roll race quilts but don’t know how to do it. I want to learn

  52. So awesome!!! I am always intimidates by thought of quilting — these look like something even I might be able to handle. Wahoo!

  53. Leah Glasscock-Sanders says

    I really like the basic race quilt, it’s cute & simple, but still visually interesting! Thanks for the Giveaway!

  54. These are amazing. I am really new to sewing and so would need the basics, saying that the ‘basic’ christmas quilt is stunning. I also like the idea of using a name on it for a child too. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  55. Kathy Romans says

    I really like the fabrics in the Christmas quilt, and it seems like a quick and easy quilt to make. I also like your Logan quilt. Would be a great one for my grandson.

  56. Mary Furber says

    I love the “Pirate Mateys” quilt and would love to learn your tips for quickly piecing it.

  57. Tasha Cooper says

    I would love to learn the basics to start. My favourite is the Christmas one – looks great! Thanx for the giveaway!

  58. Your quilts are wonderful. I haven’t sewn for years but since I’m going to retire one of these days I am anxious to pick it up again. I love the Cruiser Blvd. but that may be because I have a new grandson to make a quilt for. Enjoy your site it is like candy for my soul.

  59. I think my favorite is the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt, but all look great!

  60. Cheryl B says

    Love your Standard Jelly Roll Race Quilt and the fact that you don’t know what it’s going to look like until it’s done!

  61. Savannagal says

    I like the first one best, I think because of the colors.

  62. Kathleen Dalecio says

    I like your 3rd example with Logan’s name on it. I have a 17 month old grandson who would soon enjoy seeing his name on his very own quilt.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win some Riley Blake Rolie Polies! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed.

  63. We did a jelly roll race at our last quilt retreat and it is so fun! I would love to know more about the 3rd style and how to stack my deck properly for the next time!

  64. This looks like fun, I love quilts especially when they are gifts. I received a beautiful one for Dallice when she was born.

  65. I love #1, but Logan’s quilt comes in as a very close #2. Thank you for sharing and the great giveaway.

  66. This pattern is great!!! I really love the first quilt the best.

  67. Jacqueline says

    How cute are those pirates!!! I would love to know more about how you laid out the squares to break up the strips! =)

  68. I love the standard the best! I’ve had the desire to try this technique but am too chicken without specific instruction.

  69. Heather Hunt says

    I love the last one with the name! Honestly, they all rock!

  70. I LOVE the pirate quilt!!!! They are all truly wonderful, I’ve never tried a quilt like this, but I am very inspired to try!

  71. Heather Braun says

    My favorite is the Christmas one! I’ll need to be making some of those this year! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  72. Jennifer says

    I think #1 is my favorite–but I also really like #3!

  73. Oh man, I am in LOVE with the Jelly Roll Race quilt. I haven’t made a quilt in years but this one seems fast enough that I won’t lose interest halfway through 😉

  74. I absolutely LOVE jellies and making jelly roll quilts! I am also going to be at the Fabric Fest!

  75. Sara ryttersgaard says

    I love the original quilt and also the name quilt. Both are super cute!

  76. Rebecca T says

    I like the original the best… With the one in Ahoy Matey a very close second! With that said, they’re all wonderful!

  77. The Christmas themed quilt is my favorite, I’ve never used a jelly roll so would probably try the standard jelly roll race first.

  78. marjorie says

    I am drawn to the pirate quilt with the extra squares (and extra cuts). I would love to win a rolypoly!

  79. Joy Ercanbrack says

    Love Logan’s quilt and your idea for stacking the deck. For my first jelly roll quilt I sorted the strips in color groups and took one from each as I sewed them together. I found this was a good way to keep a balance of colors throughout the quilt top. You have a fun blog!

  80. Deb Rayman says

    Love the jelly roll quilts, I have made one good fast quilt for charity giving.

  81. Amy O'Hara says

    Pirate Quilt! I AgreeItWouldBeFunWithSquaresThatPop!

  82. I’ve never done the Jelly Roll race before but I’ve seen some cute quilts done that way. Your new ideas look like something I’d love to do. Can’t make it to Fabric Fest but I can’t wait for the details. Hope you post them on your blog.

  83. Annette Holbrook says

    I’d love to learn more about BOTH of these quilts. I’ve never made either. (I’m new to quilting!)

  84. Donna Mansker says

    The 2nd one. Although I love the 1st one, too.

  85. I really like the regular jelly roll quilt, but I think it would be great to learn how to make the Applique one.

  86. Elisabetta says

    thank you so much for this cance, I really like the first one as Logan quilt too ^_^
    I’d like to learn this tecnique

  87. The third one is super fun – love the color-blocking and name applique at the top!

  88. I like the last one a lot–the kids’d love it’!

  89. I would love to learn the Jelly Roll Race Quilt.

  90. It is hard to decide which i like best but I think I’d like to learn more of how to do the Pirate Matey’s one. I like to make each of my foster kids a quilt personalized for them when they go home and with limited time to sew, these Roly Poly’s would be perfect!

  91. Michelle Bowers says

    I like the first on (Merry Little Christmas) the best. I would love to learn more about it!

  92. Ellen Chavis says

    Tough call. Think I like the one with cornerstones in it the best. But the others follow very close behind! Thanks for the giveaway.

  93. I love how you “stacked the deck!” I’ve been wanting to see how fast a jelly roll race quilt goes together. I hope I win so I can find out! Thanks for the chance!

  94. Love these – makes me want to stop everything to make one!!!

  95. I love the standard and the stacked deck the most. They are beautiful!

  96. Elizabeth Jenkins says

    I really like the Merry Little Christmas but they’re all really fun looking. Thanks.

  97. I am determined to learn to sew, and quilts are things I love and would love to make! I love the Christmas quilt!

  98. Shelley C says

    I’d like to know more about the stacked deck one. I have a set of bunkbeds that I planned on making the race quilt for but as a qayg method…hope I’m not biting off more than I can chew! 😛

  99. Shelley P says

    I’ve always wanted to make a quilt from a rolie polie but haven’t found a good tutorial yet. I’m hoping to “learn the basics” and love the look of the xmas fabric. Would be a nice quilt to use while watching TV during the winter cold months 🙂 Thanks!

  100. I’d really like to make the Christmas quilt. Such cute prints… but they are all adorable!

  101. I love your standard jelly roll race quilt. I’ve made two of these, and they’re so much fun! Thanks for sharing your different versions. Wish I could be there to take your class 🙂

  102. Michelle caldera says

    I love the cruiser blvd:) all of them are cute!!

  103. Love them all, but the first one pops out at me because I’m expecting a baby girl. 😉

  104. I have three baby quilt to make this summer and the Jelly roil Race quilt looks perfect! Can’t wait to
    learn how to make it!

  105. Love, love all of these! I think my favorite is the basic Christmas fabric one. So cheery looking!

  106. All of them are fantastic. I love The Christmas fabrics and mitered corners of the first one, I love the cornerstones in the pirate quilt, and I love the large design space in Logan’s quilt. In choosing just one, I would choose the Christmas fabric and set it up with the cornerstones, then maybe add a solid piece to each end.

  107. I love the standard jelly roll race quilt in the merry little Christmas fabric!! I am still working up the courage to try my first quilt and this idea makes me think that I can actually do it!

  108. They’re all delightful, but it’s hard to improve on the original! So many fun choice to make for what sort of fabric!

  109. Madeleine says

    I’d love to learn about the one with the squares. So much fun!

  110. Toni Brooks says

    I have made a jelly roll quilt & love how it works out.
    Will have to try your version next time.
    Love to win, thanks

  111. Barbara Colson says

    I have always wanted to learn how to make the Jelly Roll Race Quilt, so I’d probably start with the original one, and then experiment with variations.

  112. These look so fun! I have a couple of baby quilts that I need to get done before the end of summer (in between the other stuff I have going on) and just can’t seem to figure out what to do. The stacked deck one looks like it will be just the ticket. Thanks so much for sharing!

  113. I love the Pirate Mayey’s pattern!

  114. I love the first one . . . no the name one . …. no the first one . . . Ok, all of the quilts are awesome! I’d love to win this giveaway, thanks so much for hosting!

  115. Chris Lynch says

    I love the Cruiser Blvd. Keep up the good work.

  116. I love the Jelly Roll Race quilt! They’re both beautiful, but that one really grabs me.

  117. I am new to making quilts and would love to know more about all three lusted above. Would love to try a jell roll race quilt. Your quilts are beautiful.

  118. I would love to learn more about the third quilt and how to applique a name on the quilt. It is simply to die for! I hope there are more instructions available at a later time. All the ideas are simply great! Thank you for sharing your ideas and talent and thanks so much for the opportunity to win!

  119. I love the pirate quilt pattern & would love to learn that one.
    Thanks so much 🙂

  120. I like them all but especially the first one with Christmas fabric because of the colors and how they are put together

  121. I like the last one with the name, i think that’d be great to make for my boys!

  122. Anna Jolley says

    The third applique quilt looks so great. I would love to learn how to make it!


  123. I like the race quilt! So special with the name added. 🙂 Thanks for the chance!

  124. Chris Shealer says

    Cruiser Blvd. is adorable and would be my choice to make. I know 4 little grandchildren who would all love a quilt with their names on it!! Love all of them!!

  125. Elizabeth Smith says

    Would love to make one for Children’s Hospital.

  126. I like the first one with the Christmas fabric.

  127. Linda Collins-Daman says

    I love the soft colors in the Christmas quilt and the appliqué of the Logan quilt. Looks like you could also embroider your label info in the red strips in the lower right corner….what fun 🙂 Thanks for sharing

  128. The challenge here would be to decide which one to make first. I think I like the one done in Pirate Mateys fabric. There aren’t any little boys around here, or girls for that matter, but I could make it for me, couldn’t I?

  129. I would like to learn the one with the corner stones. They are all wonderful quilts. I can’t imagine what your next version will be, but look forward to seeing it.

  130. Love the colors in the Christmas Quilt. I’ve been making Christmas quilts for family over the last few years. I’d like to try this method for one of my Christmas quilts this year.

  131. Kathy Lambert says

    My first quilt was the jelly roll race quilt (against my sister, we tied). That was all it took. Our home now has more fabric (everywhere) than you can imagine, computer room is now a sewing room and who needs a dining room anyway. I do love your jelly roll quilts (mine was quite boring, all pastel strips). But I do love your “Merry Little Christmas” quilt looks fresh and fun. Thanks for sharing.

  132. I love them all but my most favorite it the Christmas quilt. All are lovely. Next project decided!

  133. I love the Christmas fabric, I have done one jelly roll ‘race’ quilt and would love to do more. Fabulous giveaway.

  134. I love them all! I’ve been wanting to make a Christmas quilt.

  135. Love seeing new designs for the Jelly Roll Quilts. My favorite is the last one with a big negative space for adding a name; great idea for a child’s quilt.

  136. I really love the second quilt!! Thanks for the giveaway!

  137. Janice Peavler says

    I really liked all three, but seem to be a little partial to the first one. Love the colors in it, as well as the design. Great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  138. My fav is #1 but part of that is the fabric, those colours blend so well together 🙂

  139. I really like the last one made from the cruiser blvd. fabric. I love the personalization!

  140. I love the Christmas fabrics in the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt and it would be fun to make a fast, cute quilt like that!

  141. Aleana Wirtanen says

    would love to win!!!!!! this would be my 1st quilt!

  142. I would love to do either of them, I have never used a roll so either would be a learnign curve for me

  143. Barbara Gardner says

    I’m not sure which one I like the best – probably the first one, “A Merry Little Christmas.” What’s not to like in any of them?!

  144. I love the first one using Riley Blake’s Christmas prints! Thanks for the giveaway!

  145. Hello, I love the “Merry Little Christmas” design, it looks beautiful. Thank you for the giveaway!!
    (smjohns63 at yahoo dot com)

  146. These are great… the Christmas one is so pretty and I love the extra planning on Logan’s quilt.

    thanks for the giveaway

  147. Lucy Durston-Birt says

    I love these quilts and have always fancied having a go at them, but not yet got around to it, so winning the fabrics would make my day! I love riley blake fabrics 🙂 the quilt using the Cruiser Blvd Fabrics with the child’s name on the top is very unique and personal just the way I like making anything that I do. Xx

  148. Super Cute! I love Rolie Polies!

  149. I really like them all but the one with Logan on the top is especially cute. I know why he loves it!
    Thanks for this opportunity.

  150. I like the woven look of the Pirate quilt. What fun!

  151. I love the placement of the squares between the half strips and would love to learn this technique. Thanks for offering the chance to win some great RB fabric:)

  152. Janet Sabol says

    I did a jelly roll race last year with about 8 of my Quilt Guild friends. What a fun day! I’d love to know more about the quilt with the squares and half-strips of fabric. Thanks for the giveaways!

  153. I love the standard jelly roll race quilt! I have been wanting to make something similar for my little miss! So cute!

  154. susan tyler says

  156. KathScraps says

    That Logan quilt is darling – love something personalized they can keep forever.

  157. Love the quick and easy designs. Can’t wait to see them at Sewfest!!!!!

  158. I really like both. I think I like the applique better, but like the pirate material more!

  159. Just Jill says

    Love the quilts! great work!

  160. I love the last quilt – the Logan one.

  161. Janice King says

    These Jelly Roll quilts look like sew much fun! I especially like the third quilt, as I love how you appliqued your son’s name on it. It makes a quilt so special to a little one to have it for their very own, with their name on it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  162. Deb Cline says

    I love the second one with the squares and pirate motif. Looks so fun! Thanks for the chance to win.

  163. I love them all …. but, I love the Christmas fabrics in the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt. So cute!

  164. Jenny Nelson says

    I absolutely love the deck of cards jelly roll race quilt! They all look like so much fun to make! Thanks for the chance to win!

  165. Jill Froelich says

    The jelly roll looks so cute. I need to make one of those for sure.

  166. Darlene Krystal says

    I love the Pirate Mately’s quilt…that looks like a fun one to make…Have a great Fest….

  167. eileensideways says

    the pirate matey’s quilt is interesting. it looks like it is woven with the vertical blue stripes.

  168. Lisa Marie says

    I have also made some jelly roll race quilts with modifications. So many possibilities! The second quilt you showed intrigues me because it doesn’t look like a typical jelly roll race quilt.

  169. I love the Pirate Matey’s quilt. I love how the little squares break up the long strips and makes everything so much more interesting.

  170. I have never made one of these quilts before (I am making my first ever quilt at the moment) so I would like to learn about the original design first.

  171. LILA-ANNE says

    I would be interested in making the pirate style quilt.

  172. BRENDA SUTTON says

    Cruiser Blvd for me! Makes me think of a road trip. I would love to try a jelly roll quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  173. the jelly roll quilt looks really neat!

  174. Carolyn Faircloth says

    So cute! Love to try one!

  175. Michelle Naugle says

    I love the Christmas quilt. All of these quilts are so cute! Would love to make one!

  176. I so would do the Jelly Roll Race

  177. Sally Dixon says

    I’ve never made a jelly roll quilt but would love to soon. I really like the Christmas quilt!

  178. Belinda D says

    I’m a little bit smitten with RB rolie polies!! Would love to learn how to make something like that Christmas Jelly Roll Race quilt! It’s gorgeous!! I’m doing my very first quilt at the moment (stack & slash) 🙂

  179. I would love to learn more about the Jelly Roll Race quilt! awolk at rogers dot com

  180. Courtney Bullock says

    I just heard about this type of quilt last week and am thinking of trying one myself! Great ideas! I love the third one with room for “embellishment”!

  181. I really like your “Pirates Matey” quilt with the addes squares. I can so see this as a family quilt for the couch!

  182. Anne Marie says

    I have been wanting to make one of these quilts – my favorite is the Christmas quilt. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  183. Kay Statom says

    I love the Christmas quilt. It would warm up the season in more than one way. All the quilts a beautiful and would be fun to make

  184. Betsy Cook says

    I love all three of them but the race quilt is just a great idea for a childs quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  185. Michele T says

    Both quilts are really neat!! I’ve never been in a Jelly Roll Race, sounds like fun!! I think that I would enjoy making the quilt with the name on top… everyone would love that!!!

  186. You have inspired me to cut strips and start sewing

  187. I would like to learn the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt. Thanks for sharing the pictures and for the great giveaway.

  188. I personally like the orderliness of the Stacked Deck Logan Quilt. I also have been trying my hand at machine embroidery and this quilt provides the perfect place for a personal touch of embroidery. Having several grandchildren, I like that the Rolie Polie Quilts take so little time from start to finish!

  189. I like the merry little Christmas quilt, I like quilt tops that easy to put together because my favorite part is hand quilting.

  190. Wow, they’re all so fun! I love that they’re easy too — they are, right? Even for a beginner like me? Anyway, I think the first race quilt is the one I want to learn more about — at least for now. 🙂

  191. Rosemary Rivas says

    Wow! All those quilts are great especially the “pirate matey” I guess I like that because it’s a variation on the basic. I guess I should learn the basic Jelly Roll Race first but it would also be great to learn the variation. I heard there’s a U-Tube video on how to make the Jelly Roll Race.

  192. Linda Tunnell says

    I would love to know more about either quilt.

  193. Cindy Pilkington says

    I just love the look of the 2nd one. The little alternating squares give it a lot of interest! I’ve not done a jelly roll quilt before and I would to try this as my first. I have a jelly roll my husband gave me for Valentine’s Day, but did not have a plan in mind to use. I’ve recently started quilting this year and just love, love all the fabric choices!

  194. I love the Christmas one! Great colors!

  195. Peggy Starkey says

    I Love Riley Blake fabrics and the Jelly Roll quilt is just adorable. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  196. Rhonda Desgranges says

    I have never done a Jelly Roll quilt. I like the first one with the Christmas prints. I would like to learn about the
    basic Jelly Roll Race quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!


  197. I love the second quilt. I like the structure that goes with it – I struggle with complete random and there is no way that I could just shuffle strips then sew. I would absolutely have to stack the deck!! There is absolutely no chance of coming to a class (since a rather large ocean will keep me away) so anytime you want to share tips on this quilt they’d be greatly appreciated. My jelly roll has been sitting in the cupboard for 5 years now, so I can easily wait until all your classes are taught….

  198. I’ve never made a jelly roll race quilt. I especially like Logan’s quilt.

  199. I love your quilts! I haven’t made a Jelly Roll Race quilt yet, so I would love to try any of them. My favorite
    is the Christmas quilt and I love the Pirate Mateys quilt with the addition of the squares. Thanks for the chance to win.

  200. All of them are wonderful but I like the standard jelly roll race one the most.

  201. Love all of them. Favs are the Christmas and the one for your son.

  202. Jilliansews says

    I wan to know more about the one using cruiser blvd. I would like to try that.

  203. I love the Christmas quilt. The colors and pattern are so pretty.

  204. Lise Sculland says

    I love the Christmas one. What a great idea to put it on the floor and let the little ones play on it. So cute

  205. Lise Sculland says

    love the Christmas one. So colourful.

  206. Karen Gray says

    I think I would like to make them all they are all so cute. They would be perfect for my grand kids. They would love hem!

  207. I like them all but my favourite is the second one – Pirate Mateys!

  208. Mary Willis says

    They are all great! I want to make the one with the pirates and the squares.

  209. I am in love with these quilts! I have to try one!

  210. I’d love to try any of them, but since I’m a newbie, maybe the first one would be best for the first time. Love them all!

  211. lia van den brand says

    I would give your ‘Logan” quilt a try. greetings lia.

  212. Barbara Snedegar says

    I love the one, Pirate Mateys, with the squares added!

  213. Love the one that looks like it has cornerstones in it. Is there still room available at the event? Think I’d love to go!

  214. I am leaning towards the basic one…but maybe the personalize one would be fun to try!

  215. Sheri Eslinger says

    They all look so wonderful and using Riley Blake fabrics makes them even better.

  216. I`ve never made any of these quilts so I`d love to make them,they would be perfect for a gift and lap quilt.The one with Logan´s name caught my eye!

  217. Ruth Stark says

    Picking just one is a hard decision! I really like each for their own unique attributes, but I think that the pirate quilt edges out in front of the rest. I really like how you figure out a space to put applique on the name quilt, too. Such fun! creativeforays@gmail.com

  218. I have never heard of the Jelly Roll Race Quilt. What great quilts to make so quickly! I like the first one but I’m not sure if it’s because I am drawn to the Christmas fabrics … They are all beautiful quilts. Thanks for the giveaway!

  219. I’ve made only one so far, the basic miter, so I would love to learn more about the 2nd one, with the squares. It looks like there is a pattern to that & is very intriguing!

  220. I’d like to make the christmas one!

  221. I like the Cruiser Blvd. I especially like the Name on it. Done with Jelly Roll strips?

  222. I love these quilts! I really like the second quilt! I can imagine it in all sorts of amaing fabric lines! Thanks for a great post and a great giveaway!

  223. I love Riley Blake! My favorites are Oueces of Hope, So Sophie, Prairie Rose, and now Indie Chic!
    I like the race quilt with the squares between the strips.

  224. Elizabeth O. says

    All these quilts are lovely, I especially like the third one, the appliqué is stricking I would definately try to learn more about this technique! Thanks for being part of this hop!
    Have a wonderful day!

  225. I love the jelly roll race quilt. so cute!

  226. Melanie Dohojda says

    I have never used a rolie polie before because I never knew you could make such great things with it. I think I would like most to learn the personalized blanket, because I would like to learn how to do applique. Would love to win.

  227. I love all your quilts Caroline! They are stunning!

  228. I would love to make the Christmas quilt, it would look so cute against my red couches!

  229. I need a quick quilt for my granddaughter and like the second design, but will probably choose a line other than Pirate Mateys. 🙂


  231. “Cruiser Blvd“ is the one for me.

  232. I would like to make the Christmas quilt. It always seems like you need a last minute gift at this time of year.

  233. These are all incredible! I’m just mid-way through my first quilt, but I’m already hooked! I’d love to try one of these since they seem fast and easy. The appliqued one is my favorite. SO cute!

  234. Marilyn Tucker says

    I love the Merry Little Christmas quilt! They are all beautiful though.

  235. Susan Stanton says

    Your variation with the squares is so cute. I think making it with bright squares, like you suggest, would be a knockout!

  236. Hi!!! They are all wonderful!!!! But my grandson Jager would love the cruiser blvd one but with his name on it!!!! How fun!!!! Then I would have to do some kind of a princess one for his little sister Emma!!!! Thanks for the fun give away!!!!

  237. Susan Paxton says

    I have made one jelly roll quilt but then messed it up by trying to FMQ. I love the looks of all of your quilts but especially the Christmas one.

  238. Patty McArdle says

    Love to try these jellyroll quilts. I am thinking they would make fabulous Christmas gifts for the family!

  239. I would love to learn how you put together the pirate-themed quilt. So cute!

  240. Stacy Gregerson says

    Cute Quilts! My fave is the Merry Little Christmas one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  241. I haven’t tried a jelly roll quilt but I’d love to give them a try. I might try the second one first.

  242. I like Logan’s quilt. Children like to see their names on stuff they own, I think. Thank you for the chance to win.

  243. Allison D says

    I like the third one with the applique space, but they all look great. Thanks for sharing!

  244. I have yet to make a jelly roll quilt,and would love to know how you made the Merry little Christmas one! Thanks for the giveaway. On pins & needles for September to get here 🙂

  245. Pat Upton says

    I love the jelly roll race quilt! And the pirate mateys quilt too!

  246. Hi, I really love fast quilts for presents because typically other people actually use the quilts we gift rather than just admiring them like us quilters do, lol. Cute quilts.. my favorite is name appliqué quilt. It is a great way to personalize. Thank you for sharing and thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  247. Quilt #2 has my interest! I would love to see how that is done!

  248. Lori Morton says

    I’d love to learn more about the Jelly Roll Race Quilt, but am still pretty new to quilty life……this looks so fun…and easy! 🙂

  249. oh how I love that first one with the A Merry Little Christmas fabrics….makes me want to do a Christmas quilt so much! And you know me, I’m pretty much a non-sewer and the most quilting I have done was making a quillow a long way back….no piecing (is that what you call it?) You quilters just amaze me!!

  250. Jennifer Barr says

    love the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt

  251. I’m most interested in the one with squares, but the third one looks great, too!

  252. Sigrid Golnik says

    These Jelly Roll Race Quilts really look like fun. What a great way to use up Fabric too. My favorite one is the first Standard Jelly Roll Race Quilt as I am still a beginner to this type of quilting. I would love to learn more about how to do the third – personalized jelly roll race quilt.

  253. I would like to make the one with your son’s name on it. This would make a great gift for baby showers. Thanks for the chance to win.

  254. Jessica Gardner says

    It’s tough to choose only one. I like the Christmas Quilt for it’s simplicity and how fast it sounds to make, but the Race Quilt has to be my favorite. When I first saw it I said “Cool! My boys would love that.” I love the Cruiser Blvd fabrics and have been itching to try them out. I have 2 boys and 1 more on the way and have to say that most of what I can find out there for ideas are for girls. I’m excited that you did a boy quilt and I love it.

  255. Crystal Rose says

    I’d like to learn about the Standard Jelly Roll Race quilt, quilt #1.

  256. The 3rd quilt (Logan)

  257. Stacy Alfano says

    I love them all, but I really like the pirate one the best!!!

  258. I really like the standard jelly roll race. may be because i like the colors because i like the last one Cruiser Blvd also. shobbs@scarlette.com

  259. It is hard to pick but that Christmas one is ADORABLE. These are amazing, I am seriously impressed!

  260. usairdoll says

    All three of your quilts are beautiful! I’ve never made a Jelly Roll Race quilt. I know the strips are in random order so it would be great to stack the deck as you said. I’m picking the third quilt as I love to applique and do embroidery so having a nice big area to do that sounds great!

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win. Two winners! Woot! Woot! You Rock!


  261. I’ve made several jelly roll strip quilts but I like the 2nd one with the little blocks. Fun. Thanks.

  262. Karrie Smith says

    All 3 quilts are so pretty! I would like to learn about the last one because of the lettering. I haven’t done that before. Thanks for the chance to win!

  263. I like cruiser blvd the best! They’re all adorable though 🙂

  264. Love all of them, but the “Cruiser Blvd” looks like a lot of fun to make and you could do so much.

  265. I like the standard jelly roll run pattern best babscorbitt@gmail.com

  266. I love the third quilt with space for something personal. I need to make a quit for my daughter, only my second ever to be made, so would live to try this technique, it looks great!

  267. They are all really pretty but I am a sucker for Christmas fabric so my favorite has to be the one made from “A Merry Little Christmas”.

  268. Carol in E TN says

    I would love to make the Jelly Roll Race quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

  269. Lynn D in NC says

    I really like all the quilts, but the second one using the half strips and squares really appeals to me. Thanks for the chance to win.

  270. That quilt looks like FUN!

  271. Anne Rita says

    I lvoe all 3, but the second one is the most intriguing. I can imaging making all kinds of variations.


  272. All three of the quilts are beautiful. I’d like to learn how do make the second one with the cornerstones.

  273. Marie Sagers says

    I really love the Pirate Mateys one. It looks woven!

  274. I love all your jelly roll quilts. I would love to take a class. Wish I could go to the Fabric Fest. I would love to learn how to do them all but my favorite is the last one that is personalized. What a great gift idea!

  275. I like the Jelly roll quilt. I have not tried doing one yet but I have a roll that I just ordered. The one with the name on it is also something my grand children would just love and of course me … Ha Ha

  276. i’m really intrigued by how you figured out where the “solid” red strips were going to end up!!

  277. Jennifer T says

    I like the Pirates quilt. So cute. I love seeing handmade stuff for boys.

  278. I love the Jelly Roll Race quilt. I would actually like to try any kind of jelly roll quilt, they all look great!

  279. Lori Morton says

    I loooooove the Christmas one the verrrrrry Best!! Know my couch would love it too!! 🙂

  281. Sabine Wright says

    I would make the third version – the perfect baby shower gift

  282. I really like them all, but I am a sucker for anything Christmas themed! sguday at shaw dot ca

  283. I love the Logan quilt and would love to make one for my first great grand niece or nephew due in November.

  284. I like the coloring of the Logan quilt the most. Not sure I’d put a name at the top but it’s my favorite — and I have a nephew named Logan!

  285. Lorraine Wood says

    I love the Christmas quilt, but the third one looks fun too (and my granddaughter would love something with her name on it!).

  286. I love giving personalized gifts so the third one is definitely my favorite! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  287. Love all your jellyroll quilts and would love to make same for my boys)

  288. Brandy Pettit says

    Hello Carolina! Well, in case you’re still doing the drawing (there’s no submission date above :] ) I would love to learn more about the pirate jelly roll! The angled lines in the jelly roll quilts have always turned me off of doing one, but I really like it with the blocks breaking it up, I think it looks fancy that way. Sure wish I could go to Las Vegas and meet all you amazing people, I hope you have a lot of fun!

  289. I love the Logan jelly roll quilt!

  290. Hi Carolina! Love your Jelly Roll Race Quilts! Yours are the best of this type that I have seen. You mentioned a few tips & tricks that you taught at the Riley Blake Fabric Fest 2013. How about if you put this content on Craftsy? I would sign up for that class! Please let me know if you do that! Thank you.


  1. […] you seen what I’ve been up to lately? I FINALLY shared my variations of the Jelly Roll Race Quilt… and I’ve got one more I’ll be sharing […]
