National Jelly Roll Day Sept 16th
"Recent studies have shown that many quilters collect these pre-cuts without knowing what to do with them, without having a purpose." A jelly-roll is a pre-cut bundle of 2 1/2″ wide fabric strips. The name “jelly roll” comes from the resemblance of the rolled-up strips to a jelly-roll pastry.
The strips are sewn together to create a large piece of fabric for quilting or other projects . The term was coined by Moda Fabrics.
Local fabric stores supporting the "National Jelly Roll Day" include a free pattern, compliments of Moda Fabrics, to use with any irresistible Jelly Roll.
