Jelly Weave

Jelly Weave, jelly roll quilt pattern

The last new pattern I wrote to accompany Backyard Blooms is Jelly Weave.  

This is one of those quilts that when you step back, or even just squint a bit you can really see the pattern.   I love woven looking quilts (like this, and this, and this!), and this one is so simple to put together.  

Backyard Blooms fabric

It’s made from a Jelly Roll (pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips) or you can cut strips from yardage.  

This is only the second pattern I’ve written with the blocks set on-point (on the diagonal).  The blocks are laid out and sewn into diagonal rows, and the edges of the quilt top are trimmed straight. 

If you’ve never made an on-point quilt, this is a good place to start with easy big blocks!

I made this quilt with just a few days until photos were due for the fabric line, so I had to baste and quilt this one myself in an afternoon.  You can barely see the quilting lines, but I did some simple straight lines 1/4″ away from the seams in one direction.  

It’s not what I would have picked if I had more time (a.k.a. if I hadn’t procrastinated until the day before), but it works!  

Jelly Weave Quilt

Finn and Jane have become the best little friends.   It’s probably because she’s short and she always has food, but he is so patient and careful with her even when I know she’s driving him crazy.

Plus he’ll pose for a photo…will work for treats!

Jelly Weave can be found here as a paper pattern, or here as a PDF pattern. 

Puppy not included (depending on the day).

      Thanks Nadine! I love cutting strips from the yardage I already have…it’s a great way to use up my stash!

    Such a sweet quilt…are you sure you won’t include the puppy?? ;)

      I don’t know…today I might actually hand him over to you. He’s going through his “teenage years” LOL!

        Trying to find the jelly roll in the same colors but don’t know where

    What a great design! You’re getting high fives from my many unused jelly rolls. Just ordered the paper pattern. Well done, Allison!

      I’m high fiving those jelly rolls right back! I’m the same…I have jelly rolls and then I just never unwrap them!

    I’m with you, this pattern is so striking!

    I think this is the cutest jelly roll quilt I have seen yet! It is already downloaded and printed because I think it will be used often and used well. Some of my stash will be gone because of your great creative genius. Thank you again and again.

      Thank you! It’s a fast one to put together, especially the crib size since it only takes 24 strips!

    This is the perfect quilt for any occasion – I’m with you on the “weave” look. Jane & Finn are so dang cute together. LOVE your new fabrics! xxoo

      Allison, what is the jelly roll pattern? I just finished this pattern…But I did it in lavenders greens and blues. But the kelley roll is really nice.

    This is so pretty! I’m farely new to quilting and find I’m drawn to on point quilts. This one looks like one I might be ablr to handle!

    • Allison February 9, 2020 at 8:36 pm #

      You could do this one!

  11. Helen February 13, 2020 at 10:25 am #

    Good idea!

    I ordered the Suburbs pattern yesterday and I see that the Paypal payment went through. How long before I get the PFD file? Thank you, Doreen S. Roos

    • Allison February 24, 2020 at 8:28 pm #

      You should have got it instantly Doreen, so something must be wrong if you didn’t get a confirmation. I’ll check it now and make sure the email address was correct. -Allison

    Hi Alison I am fairly new to quilting and bought your PDF pattern through Annie’s and I would be interested to know how you chose to quilt it, the pattern only says quilt as desired and it is hard to tell from the picture how it has been done. It would be good to hear from an expert which quilting method suits this style of quilt best.

      Question. FQ will give 7 21″ strips. Is this doable using FQ’s. Any pieces longer than 21″.

    On the back page it says finished block is 11 1/2 ” but on page 3 it says it should measure 12″ when I put my block together the sides (the white & blue) measure 11 1/2 when put together but the red and white measure 12″ I have double and triple check my cutting and seams pressed well what did I do wrong????

    Did you make this from a jellyroll and if so what’s the name of it? I love the colors and patterns

    I am in the process of laying out the twin size. My brain is not understanding how to do that. My question how many blocks per each row or do I add 1 block to row 3, 1 to row 4 ? I am definitely diagonally challenged. This is day 3 of trying to lay this out!
