Woven Jelly Roll Rug Tutorial

I was cleaning out my sewing room and came across this awesome woven jelly roll rug that I made 6 years ago as a tutorial for Moda Bakeshop. When I went to look up the tutorial on my blog, I realized that it was missing from my tutorial section as it never made it over when I switched from blogspot to WordPress. Anyway, I am fixing that issue right now with this post! =)

And if you’re wondering why it’s a “woven” quilt…well, see for yourself!

Being that I made this tutorial 6 years ago, I never took proper photos of this quilt/rug…Quig? 😉 So here is the quig in all it’s glory!

You can find my Woven Jelly Roll Rug tutorial at the link below:

This was Paige-approved 6 years ago, and still is today! ;-p

I have to admit that finding this rug was inspiring. It reminded of a time when I was newer to quilting and wasn’t afraid to take risks when it came to being creative. If you’ve ever looked through any of my old moda bakeshop posts (that’s where I got started with quilting!), I have some pretty wacky/creative tutorials!

I guess you have to take risks when being creative, else you’re not really doing anything new.

If you can’t bear the thought of stepping on this quilt, this pattern would make for a lovely pillow sham as well. You could also go bigger and make a quilt or heavy blanket out of it.

The beautiful fabric used here is Wild Rose by Blackbird Designs. If this collection ever went back into print, I would gobble it up.

This project is an oldie, but a goodie at that! I could only hope that if you haven’t seen it yet, perhaps it will help spark some creativity for you.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Summer! I’ll be hogging the wading pool with my kids tomorrow….it’s supposed to get up to 90 this week which is sweltering hot for this Seattle-girl. 😉

    I remember this rug. I saw it on Pinterest a few years back. I think that is how I found your blog. 😉

    Your rug is so cute. And I always love when your things are Paige approved. How do you clean it with that drawer lining attached?

    Love this rug! I used a similar woven technique years ago for backgrounds on two wall quilts and it’s such a fun way to quilt. Now I’ll have to make a rug, so happy to see it has endured the time (and Paige) test. I like that you’ve stitched the lining in place, another clever idea 😉
    p.s. Just read that you may even see 100 degrees in Seattle this week, keep that sunscreen handy!

    There is no padding to the rug so it would not wear very long, using just a piece of folded cotton, I recommend a piece of quilting batting in the center.

    The link to Bake Shop does not get me to your tutorial. Can you repost the tutorial please?

    Is this rug washable with the drawer liner attached?
