Jelly Roll Jam Quilt Patterns Made Bigger

Size Up Jelly Roll Jam Quilt Patterns To Make Larger Quilts

One Moda Jelly Roll consists of 42 strips, and using the ‘Jelly Roll Jam’, you can make two 36 inch square baby quilts. To make the quilt sizes larger, follow this guide to use when making a Jelly Roll Jam quilt .


Kimberly mentions that you’ll end up with some extra blocks for some of the sizes using these measurements. Use the extra blocks for a table runner or mini quilt. The excess fabric after cutting 6.5 inch blocks from the sewn strips, can be turned into appliqued letters to make matching pillows!
