In quilting, when we refer to a jelly roll, we’re often talking about a roll of fabric. But here, I made a 12″ quilt block that shows a slice of jelly roll cake (with whipped cream on top). This jelly roll quilt block is great as part of a food themed quilt or dessert themed quilt, but also would be a great mini quilt to give to any fan of jelly rolls … both the food and fabric variety.
This block is part of my free quilt block series… I’ve been offering a free quilt block each month for several years! Once you get this one, keep an eye on your inbox for more free quilt blocks, including access to all of the past free quilt blocks!
The Jelly Roll Quilt Block uses traditional piecing methods to put it together – no paper piecing or special techniques needed! This block is great for a confident beginner – it does have some smaller pieces, but all of the units are made with rectangles or stitch-and-flip corners.
