Jelly Roll Week – Layer Cake and Jelly Roll Quilt


Hi, I’m Natalie, from the Missouri Star Quilt Company and we have another fun Jelly Roll idea for you!

We made this quilt using Sandy Gervais’ Objects of Desire. We used one Jelly Roll and one Layer Cake. And what we did is, we took our 10″ squares and we cut them into a 6″ & 4″ piece, and then we took our Jelly Roll and we cut them into a 13″ piece and a 10″ piece.

And so what we’re going to do is mix these up and put our strips inbetween our layer cake. And then you come up with these really fun scrappy blocks. You sew them all together and you have this really great quilt that is fun and a good idea to do with a Jelly Roll.

Very simple, minimal cutting, thinking. It’s quick to go together, we enjoy it a lot! So, hope you enjoy this Jelly Roll idea for Jelly Roll Week from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

    Hi!  I am fairly new to quilting and I am loving learning with you ladies at the Missouri Star Quilt Co. Can you please tell me what size quilt can you make out of the one layer cake and one jelly roll???  What if i wanted to make them for a queen size bed?  How much of each would i need?  Thanks so much and God Bless, Eva

      You should be able to make a queen sized quilt with a jelly roll and a layer cake combined!  Good luck!

    6″+2.5″+4″=12.5, then you take 1″ off for the quarter inch seam, and that is 11.5″. Why the 13″ piece to attach at the bottom?

    I know this is an older tutorial, but there is hardly any information given. I’d love to make this, but I am not getting the math for these squares.

      that is correct Melissa – the jelly roll strip should be cut at 11.5″ not 13″ 😀
