This EZ jellyroll quilt goes together quickly. It is a great way to use up leftover jellyroll strips. As long as your strip is 22 1/2″ long you’re set. Or if you feel you need to do a little shopping.

In addition to your jellyroll strips you will need 2 1/2 yards of background fabric. I encourage you to experiment with something other than white. This post offers tips on choosing a background for your precut quilt.
A jellyroll and 2 1/2 yards of background will create a quilt approximately 58″ x 67″. You could easily make this bigger by adding more blocks. For each block you will need 1- 10 1/2″, 2- 4 1/2″, and 1- 2 1/2″ strip from your jellyroll. Plus 2- 10 1/2″, 2- 4 1/2″, and 1- 2 1/2″ from a 2 1/2″ strip of your background fabric. Make 42 blocks.
Alternate the direction of every other block. I like the effect this gives. It may have to do with the fact that it creates my name, Em. Silly reason I know but it does make me happy. I also like that this quilt has a scrappy feel. You all know how I love me a scrappy quilt. Check out more of my scrap busting patterns
