With the fabric already cut and coordinated, all that’s left to do is sew the strips into a fantastic quilt top! So if you have a few jelly rolls you've collected over the years, here are a few designs that'll put them to good use.

If you're a quilting newbie, it can be easy to feel intimidated by all the fabric you have to measure and cut. But guess what? That's where precut fabrics come in. They come in a variety of convenient packs, typically 5" squares (called charm packs), 10" squares (called layer cakes) and 2½" strips (called jelly rolls). Using them guarantees all your colors will match and those pieces will be perfectly sized, plus — bonus! — it means you get to skip cutting and go right to the sewing. Once you decide which fabrics feel prettiest to you, choose any of these quilt designs that are 100% precut-friendly.
