Library Journal 2015

Jelly rolls are collections of 2.5 inch strips of fabric, often from the same collection, and are a popular precut fabric used by quilters. Numerous patterns have been written that incorporate jelly roll strips, but what about the scraps left over from these projects? Forster (Sew Jelly Roll Quilts & Gifts) suggests mini quilts, which can be used as crib quilts, doll quilts, or decorative wall hangings. Mini quilts also allow quilters to test out new techniques or audition a quilt block for a larger-scale project. Most of the quilts are based off of traditional blocks that will be familiar to experienced quilters, and though the piecing is small in scale, there’s nothing overly complex about any of the designs. A second section includes patterns for a variety of small gifts, including a huggable stuffed octopus and a log-cabin style place mat that uses a folded technique that provides dimension without the use of batting. Though the patterns are written for jelly roll scraps, Forster provides instructions for cutting your own strips, and any 2.5 inchwide scrap will do. VERDICT Mini quilts are increasingly popular—Instagram is full of mini-quilt swaps—and quilters always welcome new ways to use scraps.
