STOP STRESSING OVER QUILT CALCULATIONS

Let Quilt Geek do the quilt math for you!

What is a jelly roll quilt pattern?

As the name suggests, jelly roll quilt patterns mainly use jelly roll precut strips. Jelly roll strips are usually 2.5’’ wide and 42’’ long and often come in gorgeous fabric bundle collections, called jelly rolls. Using them means you can skip the fabric-cutting step, which makes quilting projects quicker and easier, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced quilter.
