Before I share my full Jelly Roll Twirl quilt top, would you like to prepare to celebrate Easter by growing in wisdom while making a beautiful quilt? The Women of Wisdom QAL and devotional journey is a quilt along, plus 40 days of devotions delivered to your inbox, all focused on the wisdom of biblical women. While we learn from their stories, we'll also be making our quilts together 😊 The fun all starts on February 22!

Now on to the Jelly Roll Twirl quilt!

I don't usually use precuts, but I have to say it was super fun to be able to start sewing right away, without needing to cut anything first! I used a jelly roll of Simply Delightful, by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda. Aren't the colours...well...simply delightful? 😄 I think the flower print might just be my favourite. Because I had navy Bella solid for the accent, I removed most of the dark blue strips so they wouldn't blend into the navy. I don't mind at all that this means I have a few beautiful blue strips to use in some future project!

The Jelly Roll Twirl pattern starts by sewing strip sets and I decided to colour coordinate my sets as much as possible, to help highlight the large shapes created by the piecing. Sewing the strip sets together was the perfect bit of mindless sewing on an evening I wanted to sew, but didn't want to have to think about it. We all have those times, don't we?

I love how bright and cheery the quilt top is!

The quilt top is 48" square, which is a perfect baby quilt size, and it'll make a great donation quilt once it's quilted (eventually!). I haven't decided how I want to quilt it yet and I seem to have accidentally started a collection of quilt tops waiting to be quilted. Oops! I think my WIPS-B-GONE 2023 might have to focus on quilting up at least some of those tops.

  1. Like you, I don't use precuts, but gosh, this is sure a pretty quilt! love all the colors with those anchoring bits of darker blue. Perfect. The idea of having all the strips cut out ahead of time is appealing, isn't it? It is most definitely a good baby-size quilt, and will make a great donation. Good for you!

  2. Ditto what she said! Love the bright colors that remind me we might have spring - eventually! Thanks
