About

National Sew A Jelly Roll Day celebrates quilters of every generation and skill level with event.

If you’re a quilter, you collect fabric.  You may also collect “pre-cuts”, those tempting packages of many pieces of fabric already cut for you into charming sizes.  They’re so popular, there is even a special lingo associated with them – layer cakes and dessert rolls, honey buns and jelly rolls.

Recent studies have shown that many quilters collect these pre-cuts without knowing what to do with them, without having a purpose.  The Jelly Roll in particular is left in it’s original packaging and stacked on the shelf to gather dust.  Despite a huge resource of inspiration, many quilters report that they’re waiting for a special reason to break out the Jelly Roll and use it for a project.

That’s where Project Jelly Roll and the National Sew A Jelly Roll Day come in.  We’re designating the 3rd Saturday in September of every year as National Sew A Jelly Roll Day to encourage collectors to tear open a Moda Jelly Roll and make something for themselves, as a gift or for charity!  It can be a quilt or a tote bag, a pillowcase or something to wear, it doesn’t matter so long as we seize the day and celebrate the joy of being a maker.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
