National Sew A Jelly Roll Day 2021! 

National Sew A Jelly Roll Day 09162021
Some fun facts about Jelly Rolls from Moda...

-There are (40) 2 1/2" by width of fabric (WOF) strips in a Moda Jelly Roll.  (Other manufacturers pretty much follow this industry standard but not always.  And smaller rolls are becoming popular; example 20 strips.)

-Jelly Roll is a trade marked product name.  (No other manufacturer can use the name Jelly Roll.  That is why other manufacturers have come up with their own names, example:  Roll-Up, Sushi Roll, Rolli Polli, Double Scoops, Karats, Strip Roll, and Strip Pack.)

-The very first Jelly Roll was created in 2006.

-National Sew A Jelly Roll Day is always the third Saturday in September.

-You can cut (16) 2 1/2" square from a Jelly Roll strip.

-A Jelly Roll is equivalent to approximately 2 3/4 yards of fabric.

-It takes 38 Jelly Rolls to make a mile; 5,280 feet.

-Moda rolls and ties each Jelly Roll by hand. 

-There is the same amount of yardage in a Jelly Roll as in a Layer Cake (10" squares).

Jelly Rolls or Strips Rolls are very popular.  They are color coordinated by fabric collection and already pre-cut so getting to the sewing machine is that much faster.  Patterns abound throughout the industry; individually purchaseable, book collections, and free.
