Drumroll, please……

Jelly Roll Quilts & More has arrived!

Jelly Roll Book Cover

They’re here! Two boxes of my newest book have arrived on my doorstep. I can hardly believe it! A labor of love and dedication. A vision. And a sincere desire to share my passion for precuts with quilters everywhere. With help from dear friends and talented quilters. And their input. A year in the making, from start to finish. But what a way to start the New Year! Yep, this girl’s on Cloud 9.

Have you ever been tempted to try a Jelly Roll? Come on, ‘fess up. I’ll bet there are many of you out there who have actually purchased a Jelly Roll, a charm pack, or even a fat quarter bundle. But they’re still sitting — uncut — on a shelf or in your stash. Am I right? Well, if you weren’t sure what to do with a Jelly Roll, or Layer Cake, or Honey Bun, or Turnover……this new book is for YOU! Click here if you want to get the whole scoop.

To get your hands on your very own signed copy of this terrific (okay, I’m blushing) book, simply click here. I’ll be tickled pink and oh-so-honored to personalize it to you or a special gift recipient — just leave me a comment in the box provided on the order form. I’ll get it right out to you — lickity split!

A giveaway!

So, how about a giveaway?  Would you like a chance to win a copy of my book? Here’s how: If you have never used a precut fabric pack, simply leave me a comment on this blog and tell me why you’d like to try making a quilt with a Jelly Roll or other precut fabric bundle. Or you can use strips from your stash. If you’ve already made a quilt from a Jelly Roll and LOVE using those enticing strips of fabric goodness, send me a photo of your quilt to my email address: moc.omnieylrebmiknull@ylrebmiK and I’ll consider that as your entry to the drawing as well. (Fine print: please send a .jpg file of your quilt 2MB or smaller — my email server will thank you and so will I!)

The perfect ruler goes hand-in-hand with the book

Jelly Roll Ruler

Have you heard about the unique, one-of-a-kind ruler I designed to work perfectly with all those precut fabric bundles? The Simpli-EZ Jelly Roll Ruler makes the ideal companion to cut the squares and other units needed to make the patterns in the book and you’ll be cutting into your Jelly Roll strips and stitching with ease in no time at all!

If you order the book and Jelly Roll Ruler on my website, I’ll give you a special package price of $32.00 for both plus S & H. Now, that’s a real deal!

Gosh, I’m excited. Still floating on clouds here. And I hope you will be, too, when you have the book (and ruler!) in your hands. I’m off to float some more…..

….scratch that. I’m off to make some more quilts with Jelly Roll strips! Would you care to join me?

  1. Woohoo, Kimberly!

    You did it – again! It’s out and quilters will LOVE this book.
    My copy still is somewhere between the USA and Germany – probably struggling with the heavy snow we are experiencing right now. I can hardly wait to finally hold it in my hand, flip through the pages and have fun! So far, I’m just thinking back one year when we were about to meet and start piecing those gorgeous tops…

    So, the 13th is not a bad day at all, is it? But I’m sure your cloud is much larger than the one I’m on right now…

    Enjoy this!


  2. I have never made a quilt with a jelly roll! I would love to win this book as I have been cutting strips
    from my fabric collection for a few years now and make a lot of scrappy quilts with strips
    Since I am trying to use more of my fabric collection this year I think these jelly rolls , charm packs, etc are going to
    be my way of buying a fabric line instead of 1/2 yard bundles to update the fabrics I already have
    would be fun to make a quilt from your book
    Thanks!!!!! and congrats on the book!

  3. Congratulations, Kimberly! I saw your book listed already in some mailer from AQS – or maybe it was on their website already – I can’t remember for sure – but I was so excited for you because I knew it was on it’s way all along, and then to see that it was actually ready for all of us to see too – I was thrilled!

    I can’t wait for you to come and see me in a couple of months! I will be buying your book from you then, when I can have you actually hand it to me!!! Tomorrow night we are promoting your class to get people to sign up for it – and I will be taking my 2 quilts that I made from classes I had taken from you in Paducah so many years ago! I have 3 quilts hanging in my house – and 2 of them are your patterns! They are favorites of mine! I will definitely be singing your praises to my guild tomorrow night!!

    Again, Congratulations! Now, just in case you were wondering if I would like to WIN a copy of your book – I definitely would. I have never made a jelly roll quilt, or a layer cake or even a charm pack, but have only made a purse from the charm packs. So I’m all set, just waiting to WIN the book! Or else I’ll be buying it in March when you arrive here in Illinois!

    Love ya!

  4. Doin’ my HAPPY DANCE for you!! I can’t wait to take a peek at what’s inside — all your beautiful designs and Birgit’s great quilting.

    If anyone is hesitating about ordering the ruler — you really need to order it. It makes cutting soooo much easier.

  5. OK, I confess, I am one of those who has bought a pre-cut and it has been sitting around for 18 months waiting for that special pattern. I would love to win this book and use my pre-cut. Thanks so much for making this possible.

  6. Congrats on your new book! I just bought my first Jelly Rolls – 4 of them! I couldn’t resist the solids from Kona Cottons. I want to see how much easier it is than spending so much time cutting fabric. Half the job is done! I can’t wait to see your patterns – I want to make quilts for each of my nieces (6 of them!) for Christmas.

  7. Hi Kimberly,

    this book is awesome! Congratulations, you did it again! I keep picking up “Jelly Roll Quilts & More,” flipping through the pages again and again. You give useful tips and the recipes look delish, quick and easy (I particularly like “Kimberly’s Nuts and Bolts”). My favorite part is “Fun with Friends”/hosting your own quilt retreat, which I have not seen in any other book.

    I am honored to have been part of the process. I had a blast and I will compare all my future quilting get-togethers and retreats to your’s!

    Your directions are precise and to the point and I don’t have to wreck my brain. The ruler and book combo is a great idea. The ruler has only the markings you need – less chance of making a mistake! The size is perfect for cutting jelly stips.

    I picked up some jelly rolls in anticipation of your book coming out. Now I can’t decide which quilt to make first and what jelly roll to use… I wish I had time to make all of the quilts in your book!

    … floating on cloud 9 with you!

  8. Well, Kimberly…I’m sorry but I saw that your book was available on AQS’s website (I’m a member) and ordered it!!! I just couldn’t wait!! I’ve never done a Jelly Roll quilt and its on my todo list! So, since I’ll have the book already (I’ll have you sign it the next time I see you in Lancaster)…could you put me in the running for a ruler only? So excited for you, doing the Happy Dance!!

  9. Hi, just got your book in the mail and really like it for three reasons. 1. the size of the font is good 2. the font color is dark and easily readable. 3. the paper finish doesn’t glare as it is
    slightly matte. Looking forward to using those jelly roll gifts. Thanks for a great book.

  10. Ho Ho …he ..he… I am blushing… lol..I got your wonderful ruler.. and I so thought I would dig in to my poor layers charms and rolls.. but NAH.. it havent helped me.. they are too pretty to look at…
    BUt I have started to consider using them..isn´t that great..;o)
    Am I out of HELP!!!
    Maybe I need help.. I dont know.. ;o)

  11. Kimberly, congratulations! I can’t wait to get my copy of your book. We presented the first step to our Girl’s Night Out ladies on Wednesday. I went shopping a bit over a week ago with a friend helping her select her fabric (do you remember always giving me your advice – I sure miss it) and picked up a bit for another friend to chose from. I pulled mine from stash except background.

    I have made a bag with a charm pack but with all the jelly rolls, honey buns and bali pops, layer cakes and more charms I have bought – nothing has done more than move from drawer to drawer.

    Now is the time to get going on them. I look forward to working my way thru your book.

  12. I have used the jelly rool strips to make a sewing machine cover. I blogged about it herehttp://quiltingfiesta.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2009-12-03T01%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=7
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  13. Congrats! Who made the cover quilt on the cover? Very pretty. Look forward to seeing the quilts in the book….where may I find a preview of the quilts?

  14. I have made quilts with jelly rolls, turnovers, and layer cakes. My latest layer cake log cabin can be found here! Working with pre-cuts are my favorite way to make quilts.

  15. Congrations! That’s quite an accomplishment. I’ve used a jelly roll before and they are so much fun cos you can just cut the lengths you need and are ready to sew!

  16. I’d love to take a peek at your new book and get some fresh ideas for 2 1/2″ strips. My bin is overflowing with strips.

  17. I have never used a jelly roll, but would love to learn how this works… I gather this is fairly easy and quick since all the fabric is precut. Please consider me for your giveaway!

  18. Congratulations on your new book!
    I’m one of those people with a jelly roll and a layer cake of some gorgeous fabrics tucked away in the cupboard…… maybe your book would be just what I need to get brave enough use them!

  19. I can’t wait to see your book! Your workshop was so much fun and you put so much extra fun in your books. I have been collecting jelly rolls and charm packs but have not used any yet. I need the proper inspiration. I would love to win a book and can’t wait to try the ruler too.

  20. You have a right to be proud…what an accomplishment! Such a pretty cover. Would love to look inside your book. I have never bought a jellyroll or made a quilt with strips, but it sure looks like fun.

  21. WOW! Thank you everyone for all your wonderful and encouraging comments. I appreciate reading them – each and every one – more than you could know! Usually — I try to respond to each comment personally. But there was such a large response to this blog posting that I’m sorry I can’t respond to each one individually this time.

    Thanks again — I’ve chosen the winner (s!) and they are posted in the next blog post. Check it out!


  22. I have never made a quilt using a jelly roll or precuts before but they are oh so very tempting in all the wonderful fabric lines that come out. I would love to win a copy of your book and the ruler looks very interesting too! Congratulations on your new book!

  23. I, like many others, have never made a quilt using a jelly roll. I have a jelly roll sitting around here somewhere, but really have never decided what to do with it. I would love to win a copy of your book, it would surely give me the inspiration I needed to get started on a jelly roll quilt!! Congratulation on the book and ruler!

  24. what perfect timing! i’ve just bought my first jelly roll – and i’ve been looking at it for a few days now but the time has come to use it – but how?? your book could be the perfect solution!!


  25. Ok, that book looks like it’s packed with cute patterns. I’ve never used precut bundles like jelly rolls before. I’ve thought about it quite seriously lately. Imagine…nicely coordinated fabrics right there together. I have the worst time trying to pick out fabrics. They never seem to match right OR, when I see precuts, there are fabrics that I never would have thought to put together.

    I’d love to win your book. What an incentive to finally buy that jelly roll. LOL

  26. Hi Kimberly!

    The ever sweet Mary @ Quilt Hollow sent me over and I am in love with everything! I also love jelly rolls! Right now Ihave 6 sitting on my shelf just waiting for the perfect project.

    I enjoy using precuts because I HATE to cut and why do something when somebody else has already done it for you! I’ll search for my favorite photos and send it your way.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

  27. I would love to try that ruler out!! Is it widely available?
