National Sew A Jelly Roll Day 2019!

It’s in less than four weeks – Saturday, September 21.

On Saturday, September 21, 2019, we’ll be celebrating the THIRD National Sew A Jelly Roll Day with our favorite quilt shops. There will be free patterns to share, Jelly Roll giveaways and lots of Jelly-fun!

Free patterns? We’ve got five patterns that are “Shop Exclusives” – meaning, the only way to get the patterns is to go to a participating shop.

This is A Garden for Harper. It’s made with a Jelly Roll of Harper’s Garden – in shops in the next week or so. The finished quilt measures 72″ x 72″.

Participating shops? To make it easier for you to find them, we asked shops to register for Project Jelly Roll. If your favorite shop isn’t listed – ask them why not? And keep checking back as the Store Locator will be updated weekly leading up to September 21.

Project Jelly Roll – National Sew A Jell Roll Day 2019 Store Locator.

Ruby Star Cascade – 50″ x 60″. This is made with three Ruby Star Society Junior Jelly Rolls (20 strips in each) of Social by Melody Miller, Pop! by Rashida Coleman-Hale and Abstract by Kim Kight. The backgrounds are from Alma and Add It Up by Alexia Marcelle Abegg.

We’ll share more soon but Save the Date! Mark your calendars!

Saturday, September 21, 2019.

We’ll be Jelly Rolling all day – and we hope you’ll join us!

  1. I am sorry but when I applied for this email service, I thought I would be receiving quilting information. I am a quilter and I love Moda fabrics. If there is an email where I can see/buy fabrics, I would appreciate being put on their list. Thanks

    1. Hey Pat… this blog is a really good one! Carrie and Linzee (the authors) are both quilters. Carrie writes patterns, Linzee is a fabric designer for moda. They always have interesting things to share that are quilting related. If you want to buy moda fabric you might check out Missouri Star Quilt Company or The Fat Quarter Shop. They are two of the larger online retailers that sell moda fabric. They both have email lists with daily deals and offer free pattern and tutorials! Hope that helps! (I’m a quilter too and I love moda fabrics too!) Warmly, MamaPris

  2. Hola Vivo en Argentina… tengo la posibilidad de estar en ninguna tienda el 21 de septiembre…una pena

  3. Has the Moda website updated the freebie patterns from 2011? I know they said they would be back eventually a couple of months ago. I have my jelly roll ready to do The Cross Terrain by Lee Henrich pattern for Jelly Roll Day. I hope they get it back on the website in time. I am looking forward to participating this year.

    1. Hi Linda – That’s the Moda Bake Shop and it is my understanding that while the updating of the archives is ongoing, some of the files have been lost. But I will pass along your request for that pattern.

  4. I’d love to go to one of the participating shops, unfortunately, the closest one is 62 miles away. Moda really needs to have shops in Western PA.

    1. BarbaraAnn- just contact your local shop and ask them to register. It’s a great promotional opportunity for them to sell jelly rolls and draw customers and receive the free patterns to make available to them from Moda. Moda fabrics are sold in every Western PA shop that I’ve ever been to, (and I don’t know of any I haven’t been to! Lol)

      1. Hello Sandie, I think you missed the point. The closest quilt shops, for me, are an hour from my home. Perhaps “Western PA” is misleading. While I am indeed in Western PA, I am close to the Ohio border, north of Pittsburgh by 50 miles, closer to the Turnpike. I am curious though, several asked if this will be online, also. I hope so. Thanks for your response.

        1. Yes, we will be celebrating NSAJRD on our Facebook and Instagram with giveaways and some of our patterns. 🙂

    2. We’re working on that – and we’re going to make sure that everybody gets to participate, whether they’re near a quilt shop or not. 🙂

  5. Will there be online shops, my closest is 50 miles away ?? I LOVE the fat quarter shop though !! Fingers crossed 🙂

  6. Will these patterns only be in the shops? As German there’s no way I’l fly to the USA for the patterns. Or are not_USA shops participating in the Jelly Roll Day too? I know I’ll use the Hide&Seek pattern.

    1. The shops will have the patterns first but not to worry, we’ve got everybody covered. 🙂

  7. Please don’t leave us hanging three weeks…what is the name of the lovely striped fabric in the header photo – courthouse steps blocks? Thanks!

    1. The stripe fabrics are from Ruby Star Society – Rashida Coleman-Hale’s Zip!. The collection is in shops now. The pattern is from Jelly Filled – Vanessa Goertzen’s just-released book of Jelly Roll quilts.

  8. I am off to a quilt shop that I have never been to .
    Looking forward to getting the Fat Quarter patterns.

  9. I don’t have a quilt shop close to me participating. The only one is 78 miles away. I couldn’t find any shop in Portland Oregon in this. So where do I get the free patterns?

  10. Please post details on which fabrics and the amounts you used for background on the Ruby Star Cascade quilt!

    1. Hi Rebecca – That quilt was made using three (3) Junior Jelly Rolls – Alma/Add It Up by Alexia Marcelle Abegg, Pop/Zip by Rashida Coleman-Hale and Abstract/Grid by Kim Kight. For the backgrounds, we used random amounts of three Ruby Star fabrics – Alma She White RS4003 20, Add It Up Metallic Copper RS4005 12M, and Add It Up Khaki RS4005 14.

  11. Oh man I wish I lived near a shop that was participating today! Will the patterns be available after for those of us who don’t live near quilt shop? Please please please!

  12. What can I do if no one in my state (South Dakota) participates? I’d love the ruby star pattern and can’t find it…..
