Jelly Roll Quilt


hi thanks for joining me this is Angie @ my chicnscratch.com today we’re making a jelly roll quilt
The Fabric is Miss Kate Bonnie and Camille by Moda Fabrics and
what you’re going to do is open up the jelly roll you want to leave it as it comes on the
role or in the package and normally that’s what you would do but i have
found I’ve made several of these and what I
like to do when there’s fabric that’s exactly the same side by side I like to remove those so for example we
have three fabrics here that are the same color that means those are going to get
attached to each other so I’m going to separate this into a couple different
colors so I’ve got red and i don’t mean a couple different colors I mean a
couple different stacks and you’ll see what i mean in just a second I’ve got red red blue blue blue to
set these aside for a second Here’s my three stacks and then
what I’m going to do since this is my first stack I’m going to start with this this piece here so what I’m going to do
is take this one lay it there and then this one and like
it there so this is going to be i’m going to
start with this stack and sew them together. Before I sew them I’m going to remove the salvage at the end I’m going to sew this with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. I’m just going to remove on every single one of them I’m just going
to stack these up and then I’ll flip it over when i get my sewing machine
because that’s the one I want to start with. ok I’ve got all my strips ready what I’m
going to do is lay it on my lap I’m going to pick up the very first
strip one end and now before I attach the other one I want to tell you you
need to full bobbins to make one of these quilts so go ahead and have those
ready so you don’t have to stop Midway so now I’ve got the end of the first
strip I’m going to pick up one end of the second strip i’m going to put them together right
sides facing together and then i’m going to place it up here on my sewing machine. I’ve got my quarter inch seam foot
presser foot I’m just going to place it on here sew
straight across I’m just going to lift the foot just a
tad and pull it out just enough to give me some room to sew the next one so I’m picking up the end of this second
strip I’m going to pick up the beginning or
one end of the third strip and do the exact same thing and you’re going to do
this to all the strips there’s 40 strips when you get them all done you’re going
to have 1600 inches one long strip so again I’ve just taken the end of the
third strip i picking up a fourth strip and just
going to sew straight across now one of the things i did not mention
is that my version is different than some of the other videos I’ve watched on
the jelly roll race quilt that’s a mouthful for me you are welcome to change it make it however you want I’m not very
good at sewing at a 45 degree angle so I decided to make mine straight I’m going to sew a couple more of
these for you and then what I’ll do is I’ll pause the
video and show you the next step ok so we’ve got all the strip some
together all 40 of them this equals 1600 inches
one big long strip what you’re going to do now is separate
these so you’re just going to trim that thread right there I don’t know that you want to watch me
do this whole thing so what I’ll do is just do a couple more
and then the next step after you trim all these is you need to remove 18
inches on the very last strip so i will just grab that last piece and go ahead
and trim that real quick and I can do this when i turn the camera off so this blue strip here is my very end so I’m all i’m going to do is just place
it here on my mat and trim 18 inches and that can go on my scrap pile ok so once we get done trimming all
these threads I’ll go ahead and talk while I’m cutting
what we’re going to do is we’re going to put the two ends together and then we’re
going to place them together right sides facing together we’re going to sew down
the right side but i will show you that over there at the sewing machine ok so i’m back at my sewing machine I’ve got my two ends together i’m going
to place them right sides together and I’m going sew all the way down to the very end
again I’m using the same quarter inch seam I’m just going to place it on here on my sewing machine now what I’d like to do is
actually stop every few inches and make sure that i have it lined up when i get to a seam like this I make sure my needle is down and then i
will raise my foot a couple times to make sure that it doesn’t raise up any ok so i’m getting to the very end of
this first strip so I’m going to finish it and i’ll show you the next step so now that we are at the end all
we’re going to do is take our scissors and we’re just going to open this up and
we’re going to do every single time we get to the end so what I’m going to do now is I’ve got
my end here I’m going to find the other and we’re
going to do the same thing we’re going to face the sides together and then
we’re going to sew down the right side all the way to the very end so now i’m going to find that ok I’ve
got both of my ends together i’m going to do the same thing right sides
together and then a place it on the sewing machine and sew it down the
entire right side all the way to the very end I’m going to pause the video and when
i’m at the very end I’ll turn the camera back ok so we’re
here at the end again I’m going to finish this up and then I’m going to do the exact same
thing I’m just going to take my scissors and
just cut straight across i’m going to open it up and now I’m
going to find the other end I’m going to do the exact same thing so
i’m going to place it right sides together and sew all the way down the
right side and I think I can probably do this one on the camera shouldn’t take too long ok so here are
both of my ends. sew the exact same way … just going to
line this up. the bigger it gets the more challenging to keep it straight so I just stopped often ok so we’re here at the end again I’m
going to finish this up and then we’ll cut it same thing just going to open this up
take the scissors and cut. going to open this up we’re going to find the other
end and we’re going to repeat the process I’m going to sew down this right side
until I get to the very end ok so i’m almost at the end of this row
so let me finish it and then we’ll cut it we’re going to cut all the way
across again and then this is the final time we’re going to put our right sides
together and sew along the right side until we get
to the very end ok so here we go We’re almost at the very end of our final row I’m
going to wrap this up ok so now we cut it open one more time
and you might find it a little bit easier to do this on a table so what I’ll do is I’ll pause the video
and pick it back up where we cut it open ok so now we’re at the very end and all
we’re going to do is take our scissors and just cut straight across ok so now here is our Quilt top and you
will see a picture of it of course before the video it turned out
beautifully the next step of course would be i’m
going to go pick out my backing fabric take it to the long arm quilter and she
will wrap it up for me so it may be a little while before you see the finished
product anyway I think I think someone’s going
to really love this whoever i give it to …. have a good day
thanks a lot bye
