Jelly Roll Race Quilt Top Tutorial – Quilting for Beginners
Here is an easy Jelly Roll Quilt top that you will find quick and easy to do. It’s ideal for your first Jelly Roll quilt as we use straight seams to attach the strips to each other instead of the usual 45° angle.
We used a Paradiso by Kate Spain for Moda Jelly Roll to make this quilt and we are so happy with the result. This is probably no longer available however there are lots of lovely Jelly Rolls available.
