Book of the Month: Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts


Welcome back to our Book of the Month feature at Fat Quarter Shop! This month we are featuring the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts Book by Pam & Nicky Lintott. Cheryl is here today to take us on a little adventure inside the book.

And remember, the Book of the Month is 20% OFF all month long!




Hi, it's Cheryl, sharing my favorite Book! I am sooo inspired by the new Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts by Pam & Nicky Lintott. This wonderful 128 page book is a compilation of over 50 patchwork blocks, which can be beautifully mixed, mingled and interchanged to create your own unique customized sampler quilt. Instructions for each block and for the sampler quilts are beautifully illustrated and easy to follow.




So many beginners start their quilting journey by making a classic sampler quilt. There are 10 stunning examples in the book, including a basket sampler, snowball sampler and star sampler just to name a few. Just choose your favorite blocks (which will be no easy chore!), then decide on one of those luscious jelly rolls, and you are on your way to sampler quilt heaven!

My 3 blocks were made using Moda's new Butterscotch & Roses by Fig Tree Quilts. As you can see, your blocks can take on different looks depending on your fabric choice - have a cottage chic blended look, a bold graphic look or a very traditional look.



This book is guaranteed to keep your creative juices flowing - now just to pick a few jelly rolls...batiks, florals, 1930's reproduction prints, novelties - I can't stop!!

Looks like a book to add to my collection. I LOVE jelly rolls. So much you can do with those 2.5" strips.

I agree with Megan! The only hard part is deciding which creative direction to take. ;)

I love their books! Checked one out of the library and promptly bought a copy, then bought their next book for my mother-in-law as a Christmas gift. Beautiful patterns in each one. I will definitely have to add this to my collection!

Blue,bleu, blue. I love blue. It can be patriotic, nature like or just happy. I always add a little blue to my Christmas decorations. Last year I collected the decorations for a blue and silver Christmas tree. Anything scrappy has to have shades of blue from pastels to teal to Navy. The book looks great and I have a lot of scraps that need a creative way to be used.
