April’s Precut

After getting my sewing space set up today I actually started my April Jelly Roll quilt. I debated several projects and knew I needed something simple as I’m still distracted with other tasks related to the new house. I’ve seen several quilts using this block online and I know I have a pattern in one of my books at home but when I was searching, I found a free version online at ChristaQuilts. Here’s my first block.

I’ve pulled other strips from the Jelly Roll to get started. My quilt will be set 6 x 8 blocks and finish at 48 x 64 inches so I can pick and choose which strips I want to use. The light fabric in the blocks will all be the same print.

Are you making a Jelly Roll quilt this month? What block/pattern are you using?


  1. Hi Mary! That sure is pretty. I love the light constant fabric – it looks like it has all the strip colors in it. I sure am enjoying your setup posts about your new home. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. This is so pretty! I don’t know how you get so much done! You are a marvel! I have some Tula Pink yardage with spatters and birds that could be used in much the same way as your background fabric. I will have to keep it in mind.

  3. Last month I made a Bento Box quilt for someone in a medical rehab — thanks to your idea and help. I used that jelly roll (Bluprint?) Unfortunately, because of this virus, she has not been released to go
    home. So many of your quilts are quick to make for people in need. Thank you so much for your constant inspiration and patterns!!
    Love your sewing space! It’s always fun to watch you transform and decorate your home, no matter where it is!

  4. Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt. I like the fabrics! I love jelly rolls but always struggle to find a pattern for them.

  5. I love your jelly roll fabrics. I’m making a crib quilt using a pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew. I think it’s very ugly now but I might change my mind when it’s done. Ugly because it’s really dark fabrics.
