Jelly Roll Rug Tips and Tutorial!

Hi everyone! I’ve had a ton of requests for a Jelly Roll Rug tutorial and so I’ve partnered with Roma Quilts to bring you this fun and easy tutorial along with my tips for sewing the Jelly Roll Rug!

Watch my Jelly Roll Rug Tutorial here!

I used 1 Full Jelly Roll and the finished size was approx. 29″ x 44″. But you can use more or less strips depending on what size you want your rug! This pattern is super customizable 🙂

I hope those tips help and I would love to see your projects! If you post them on social media make sure to tag Roma Quilts and myself on Instagram so we can see what you’ve made!

Note: I’ve had so many questions about the quilt on the wall behind me! The barn blocks are from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book, and the baby pig, cow, and cat blocks are Lori Holt as well and can be purchased from Fat Quarter Shop.

    Thank you so much! I have had this pattern for a while but have been too afraid to start. Your video has helped so much, starting it tonight!

    WOW really. So there might be a little advertising, so what. It was a very nice demonstration and I learned alot. Can’t wait to start making a jelly roll rug thanks to Mrs. Arndt. Thank you for making it very easy to follow.
    And to Beckys comment, I hope you wake up on the right side of the bed next time and may God bless you with happy thoughts and a better day.
    Thank You again Erica

    What jelly roll fabric did you use? Is it a Bonnie and Camille jelly roll? If so, which one ? Thanks!

      I used Vintage Picnic by Bonnie and Camille 🙂

    Thank you for the wonderful tutorial ! Can you tell me the size of your extension table? I got a new machine and am contemplating getting an extension table instead of a table with insert. I’m not sure what size table would be good for quilting free motion and with rulers. My machine has 10” to the right of the needle (Bernina 740). 😊 thank you.
