Jelly Roll Race!

Camp Wannamakeablankie quilt retreat is next month and a member of my small group heard of jelly roll races and thought it would be a fun evening group project. Check out this You Tube video from Heirloom Creations of Souix Falls, South Dakota.

Clever group.

I have finished the Stars over Bethlehem quilt, just have to sew down the binding. I am working hard on prepping the whole Roseville Album quilt. I am up to the two side borders and have the long trees traced and ready to cut.
I am machine appliqueing RA and have been plodding along one block at a time and decided I want to get all of the blocks assembled and then I can maybe do better snatching out a few minutes here or there to do some blanket stitching. There is an alternative motive also, I want to get into the Kaffe stash and start using it for other projects (but did not want to use a fabric needed for RA) Like maybe some 2 1/2 inch strips for a jelly roll race : )

Happy Stitching All


  1. Cheri, OMGosh! Thanks ever so much for the link to the Jelly Roll race. Just finished a quilt using this method for my dear brother-In-law, and I was in such a quandary as to what kind of quick to piece pattern to make for him.
    It came out great.
    Thanks again,
