The project I am featuring today is called the Jolly Jelly Roll quilt, using Kate Spain’s In From the Cold fabric line from Moda. I came up with this design last year for my very first Quilt Along, where I show how to make a complete quilt from start to finish.
This is such a quick and easy quilt to make, requiring just one jelly roll and a yard of solid fabric. I hope to finish this quilt in time for Christmas. Why don’t you join me and make one of your own?
So far I’ve sewn together all of my jelly roll strips and have cut them into pieced squares. Aren’t they pretty? Be sure to follow my blog so you can see the updates as I work on this quilt. I’ll probably do a couple of tutorials as I work on it including how to quilt it. 🙂

My favorites are the ones used in quilts that I’ve gotten to quilt for MODA, like Terrain, Cuzco, Fandango, and Sunnyside for this last Spring Market.
I love the all!
I love them all! If I had to choose, I think Good Fortune is at the very tip-top! 🙂
Good Fortune is my favorite. I bought a layer cake when it came out, and I’ve finally decided what pattern to use!
My favorite would have to be 12 Days of Christmas because I have a Christmas birthday. Would love to try my hand at your jelly roll quilt along!
I like Honey Honey.
My favorite is still Terrain. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!
I love so many of Kate’s fabrics but I bought 12 days of christmas as soon as I saw it – love those little iceskaters ! thanks for the chance to win 🙂
Love the free pattern, Christa. Looks like a quick gift idea. My favorite Kate Spain would have to be Terrain–such deep purples and blues. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of your kits.
12 Days of Christmas, Flurry and Joy I love them all.
Love the Honey Honey fabrics – but Cuzco has a special place in my quilt-heart too!!
I’m new to her fabrics, but I really like the colors in Honey Honey. However, i’ve been thinking about trying to accomplish a Christmas Quilt, and I LOVE the new In From the Cold collection!!!
I am currently making two different quilts using two different lines – Cuzco (LOVE!) and Honey Honey. But I always love seeing her Christmas lines each year. I love Christmas fabric and hers is always so cheerful!
I love them all! My current favorite is In From The Cold. I have plans to build a theme around it for my home when decorating this Christmas.
I made a quilt with Verna and one with 12 Days of Christmas….those were my favorites then. Now I love Honey Honey.
This is the first time that I have seen Kate Spain’s fabric!! Thank you for introducing her to me. I like the 12 days of Christmas, Honey Honey and Sunnyside. My favorite is the In from the Cold.
You are welcome – isn’t it fun?
I have to pick just one? Today I will pick Honey Honey. It is so cheerful. Thank you
for the pattern! Love your blog.
My favorite is the 12 days of Christmas
My favorite just happens to be in from the cold!!! 🙂
I love them all, but I have a house full of “Good Fortune”, literally and figuratively!
I like Cuzco!
I like Kate Spain’s Terrain Stonecrop fabric.
I love Kate Spain’s In From the Cold. I want to make a Christmas quilt, haven’t done that in a while. I love your pattern, hand in hand with Kate Spain’s fabric just might be the pattern for my Christmas Quilt. Thanks for sharing your pattern and insights, also thanks for the chance to enter.
Would you believe it? Twelve days of Christmas. I love Christmas stuff, especially fabric. Thank you for the opportunity to win. Felicia
My favorite line was Verna – but 12 Days of Christmas was a close second!
I like Good Fortune! 🙂
Love to use Joy, I am in the mood for Xmas, thanks
My favorite is Cuzco. Like the colors and geometric designs.
I loved the interviews with Kate Spain. So interesting! I have loved all of her collections – which is unusual for me. Normally I just like one or two. But I really loved Central Park and all the bright colors of her Christmas lines.
My Favorite Kate Dpain collection that is subject to change: Good Fortune.
This is a fictional account of an imaginary event that happened one day somewhere to someone, or maybe it did not happen at all. Regardless, I have printed all 28 pages of the quilt pattern In from the Cold and want to win the fabric so I can make this awesome quilt. Here is the story.
One day Verna and Joy were walking with me in Central Park. It was our Good Fortune to receive a Serenade, an invitation to walk on the Sunnyside of the street, and to come in from the Cold and snow Flurry to celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas open house at the coffee shop. To our surprise, our mutual friend Honey Honey had arranged for Kate Spain to appear at that coffee shop. So, there we were all snug and cozy listening to Kate Spain regale us with the stories behind her collections of Fandango, Terrain, and Cuzco. Kate Spain is such a fantastic designer and teller of stories. Thanks Kate for all your creative work on fabric collections and quilts!

That is a riot!!
Terrain catches my eye everytime I see it in a shop or on-line ~ it’s just one of the fabric lines that really just speaks to me 🙂
Thanks for the chance!
Kate’s Terrain and I made a gorgeous quilt with the kaleidoscope pattern. It’s too neat.
I love Kate Spain’s Joy. Gorgeous designs!
I love all Kate Spain. I have sewn with Fandango but Cuzco is my funky favorite.
This pattern is right up my ally, I’m not new to patchwork, but I’ve been away a long, long, time. Thank you for sharing this great pattern!
I am rather partial to her first line, Verna, but I love all her fabric designs. I have made quilts with most of them.
I LOVE everything Kate Spain has ever designed!! My favorite is Honey Honey with Central Park a close second.
My favorite, although I love them all, is “Good Fortune.”
Any Kate Spain fabric is good Kate Spain fabric… but I really, really loved 12 Days of Christmas!
I love Honey Honey. Such pretty blues and pinks! I love florals.
Terrain is my favorite
My favorite collection is Good Fourtune! A very close second would be Central Park.
Flurry was the first fabric line I worked with and it will always be one of my favorites. I also love Terrain.
Super cute! I love kate Spain, and have made projects out of good fortune and honey honey! I guess into the cold is next!
I love all her Christmas lines, but I think my absolute favorite is Verna.
Loved the Terrain line. Also loved Joy, there’s just something about Christmas!
Honey Honey is my favorite! The vibrant colors of spring are gorgeous!!
I think Terrain is my favorite!
I love Central Park!
