Simply Jelly Rolls is the second book in the Patterns for Precuts Series.
It contains seven patterns: Those Who Wander, Nine Hours, Solid Gold Wedding, Tumbling Along, Dancing in the Park, Harrogate Stray, and Which Way Up. Those Who Wander is an asymmetrical drunkard’s path variation using jelly roll strip sets. Nine Hours is made by making nine hour glass blocks from two jelly rolls strips using an innovative method. Solid Gold Wedding is a double wedding ring pattern in reverse. It uses the Creative Grids Wedding Ring Templates. Tumbling Along is a tumbling block variation that uses the Fons & Porter 60 Degree Diamond Ruler. It is constructed with y-seams using the revolutionary technique from Simply Hexagons. Dancing in the Park is a medallion quilt using a jelly roll as the starting point. It does not look like a jelly roll quilt. Harrogate Stray is a scrappy boston commons variation. It is constructed using strip sets. Which Way Up? looks like a pattern made from a jelly roll. It is made using simple construction methods.
The patterns are suitable for adventurous beginners.
Pattern Note: Those Who Wander – There has been some confusion with the diagrams. When strip sets are cut as pictured, they end up with both the inside curve and the outside curve going in the same direction, not different directions as shown in the block diagram. In my quilt, not the diagram, I have them going both ways. To have the strips going the same directions, cut all templates as shown. There are several ways to have the strips going opposite directions. One way is to take one light strip set and one dark strip set, place them together with right sides together or wrong sides together (both ways work), and proceed to cut the templates out as described. Another way is to cut out the light strip sets as shown and for the dark strip sets, rotate the template 90 degrees. Sorry for the confusion. I should know better. Some people like it one way, some people like it the other way, and I am crazy so mine used both ways. Once the blocks are rotated all which way, it all looks a little crazy.
