Jelly Roll Race

We are off to the races!  Threads Run Thru It Quilt Shop will host a Jelly Roll Race on National Jelly Roll Day, Saturday, September 21st!  Two person teams will compete to see who can successfully finish their jelly roll race quilt first.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners!

What is a Jelly Roll Race?

A Standard Jelly Roll Race produces a quilt top that is approximately 50" x 64".  It uses one 40-strip Jelly Roll fabric collection, sewn into a single, super long strip.  Insert pieces will be optional.  Once that strip is made, the race begins.  Participants are timed as to how long it will take them to take the 1600 inch "mega strip" and turn it into a Jelly Roll quilt top.  You end up with a quilt top that is a series of offset strips that come together in a surprisingly fast and fun fashion.  You can't really tell what it will look like until it is all done, and you spread it out for the first time.  It's quilt magic!
