Quilt Book Review: Jelly Filled

C&T Publishing did it again.  They sent me ANOTHER great book.  This one is Jelly Filled by Vanessa Goertzen.

I’ve seen tons of quilt books designed around jelly rolls….this one is likely one of my favorites.

You can see from the title that the book encourages use of 2 1/2″ strips and she presents 18 quilts in the book.  In my opinion, that’s bang for your buck.  So many other books only feature only 11-12 quilts.

Of course they didn’t feature the quilts I liked best in the photos I was given for review purposes.  UGH.

I did like this one…. Sprinkles on Top.

I liked this one but you can’t see it when it’s folded.  UGH.

This one was Christmasy and not my favorite.

So…I broke with protocol and decided to take some bad pictures and show you the ones I liked.

This is simple but cute.  Perfect for a quick quilt.  See??

This is one in the second pictures all laid out so you can see it.  Many of these  quilts are bigger than you might think.  This one is 70″ x 84″  PERFECT for a gifted quilt.

I loved this one too.  Simple but cute.

The book has quilts at many skill levels.  Check this on out with curved seams.  It’s definitely a harder one.

Diamonds?  Yes please.  I’m thinking of scrap quilts not just jelly roll quilts.  This would be cute all scrapped up.

This one I loved.  I love a 16 patch any old day.

The folded quilt was either this one…

…or this one.

I think this last one is my favorite…  I could see that last one done in shirt fabrics.  AH…I love that idea.  So fun!!

Anyway…I really liked the book and thought you might too.

If you have time to end up down a rabbit hole, you can check out the author’s website HERE.  She has lots more great patterns in the shop section.  Keep scrolling to see them all.

You can find the book at C&T Publishing or HERE on Amazon.

  1. Thanks for a thoughtful review. Vanessa does some fun designs, and I love that you have brought some of them to light for us. I can see me making some of these so the book goes on my wishlist.

  2. Thanks for the review. I love working with strips and I have so many scrappy ones in my stash here and in storage. I like the Christmas one – maybe in a different set of colors!
    And definitely the 16 patch!
    Love and prayers

  3. I”m currently working on Lella’s Butterfly patch. It is well written and fun to make. Using up a jell roll and matching layer cake I’ve had for years. Thanks for the review.

  4. It looks like a great value for the number of patterns in the book. I hate paying that price for books with only 8-10 patterns!

  5. I love this designer’s work! Her patterns are darling. So glad to have a good review of her new book!
    I think the striped quilt is the first option you named. I actually like it best!
