Sew A Jelly Roll Day 2023 – Get Ready!

By September 14, 2023blog, projectjellyroll2023

Are you ready for Sew a Jelly Roll Day this coming Saturday? The third Saturday in September, Moda has declared to be Sew A Jelly Roll Day (or you might see the hashtag #projectjellyroll )

I do love a good Jelly Roll (forty 2.5″ strips by width of fabric all rolled up looking gorgeous!) and have been sewing along with Moda for Sew A Jelly Roll Day since about 2018!

This year we are having a virtual sewalong over in our Facebook Sewalong and Quilting Group. There will be some Facebook lives (if I can get the technology gods to be in my favour!), lots of posts and updates as well as some games/competitions and a couple of prizes!

We are sewing my brand new fun jelly roll pattern called Rainbow Slider – you can purchase it here and use the coupon code sliderblog to get a discount until Sunday evening the 17th Sept (Aussie time)

I have used Rainbow Sherbet for Sariditty, however you can use any jelly roll or fat eighth bundle that has five colour groupings in it. I explain more in my fabric requirements video.

There is also my Jelly Roll Patch pattern which is a great double sided throw size. It is for an adventurous beginner : )

But if my patterns don’t take your fancy, there are some other gorgeous patterns that Moda have released that are free! There are four this year: Verticals, Pocket Change, Half Step and Four by Four Cushions (pillows for the Americans). Just click on the links or images to download the PDF pattern!

Here is Verticals in Favorite Things by Sherri & Chelsi (this collection has sold out in our online shop!)

This is Pocket Change in Berry Basket (we just got some Layer Cakes of this collection!)

Half Step looks like a nice easy pattern!

And if you haven’t really got time for a whole quilt, then Four by Four Cushions looks great. One jelly roll makes four cushion fronts!

And you can always search on our website for ‘Sew A Jelly Roll Day’ and you will find the blog posts from previous years and the links to other free Jelly Roll patterns from Moda!

Hope you have a fun Day / Weekend sewing up a storm with a jelly roll!

We have a number of Jelly Rolls in stock if you want to grab one to start your project (won’t make it to you for Saturday, but you could start next week!).
