Jelly Roll Quilt Race – Lasagna Quilt

The folks at the quilt shop Heirloom Creations ran a “Jelly Roll Race” which produced what the Stashbusters are calling a “Lasagna” style quilt. This looks so easy! I can’t wait to try it myself πŸ˜‰ They offer the specific instructions here….

    This is great! How big is the quilt top?

  2. admin says:

    Hi Diane, the quilt finishes out at 48″ x 64″ – which is smaller than a twin size (63 x 87) but still a nice sized quilt πŸ™‚

    What fun, and what a clever idea! I watched this clip three times. Who thought up this technique/idea? Personally, I enjoy relaxing and leisurely constructing my quilts, but I can certainly understand when speed might be an important factor….

    I loved seeing all the smiles on the ladies faces. They are so lucky to be able to get together and sew like that.

    I thought this was hilarious and inspiring……so far I’ve made three! And it really took me less than an hour and a half from start to finish! I love this instant gratification and not knowing exactly how they will turn out……. I’m hoping to get my guild to do this! So fun! Thanks for sharing!!!!!

    Loved it, would love to see a gallery and the name of the jelly roll used.. Very nice and alot of fun!

  23. Brenda says:

    If you used one large jelly roll (40 strips) and one small (20 strips) would you get a wider quilt – ie. double bed size or even a queen by using two 40 strip jelly rolls?

  24. Juls says:

    I am a beginner in every sense of the word… can hardly problem solve a sewing machine issue and Im 52! BUT I … I did this with a batik jelly roll and it is awesome…The lady at a quilt shoppe told me how… Had to do it in lots of little increments because of my scedule, but I am hooked!! Im not real patient and like quicker gratification so this is perfect!!! Its all pinned together and waiting for me to quilt… Just looking for suggestions. I like meandering but not sure if echo is better or what to do… I am really lousy at stitch in ditch or straight lines!! Any ideas?

  25. Joyce Hodges says:

    Ladies must have metered all the selvages before sewing strips together. I just finished a top today and certainly took me more than 35 minutes. It was fun and quick – now just need to do backing.

  26. Marci says:

    Is there a way to make the quilt bigger without adding rows along the side. What if you sew two jelly rolls together, would that make it wider or longer?
