I’ve been having fun playing with my Sugarhouse Park fabric making these cute star blocks – these are the beginning of a quilt from a fun new book full of precut strip quilt patterns by Vanessa Goertzen.

This pattern is from the quilt Cookie Cutter in Vanessa’s latest book, Jelly Filled – a book of 18 brand new patterns designed specifically for using 2 1/2″ precuts (aka Jelly Rolls or Rolie Polies).
This book is a follow up to Vanessa’s popular book, Charm School – 18 Quilts from 5″ squares so if you’ve been stashing precuts and don’t know what to do with all of them, these two books might be your new best friend.
The blocks I’ve made are from the quilt pattern, Cookie Cutter. I had fun cutting up my Sugarhouse Park fabric and 2 1/2″ strips for these darling blocks.
Aren’t those checkerboard stars the cutest? I definitely need to make a bunch more of these blocks!
I’m always a sucker for classic star quilt blocks.
Here is the full Cookie Cutter Quilt from the book. This quilt finishes at 72″ x 72″.
More Precuts Strip Quilt Patterns from Jelly Filled:
And here are a few more of the precut strip quilt patterns from the Jelly Filled book. Vanessa has a really fun variety of skills and methods used throughout the book – including strip-piecing and other short-cuts.
The book also has a great variety of skill-levels included, with a bunch of quilts that are beginner friendly, and others that will teach new techniques to build your skill set.
Be sure to check out Vanessa’s blog, Lella Boutique to see lots of other variations on these designs as other designers and makers share their creations with the precut strip quilt patterns from Jelly Filled.
You can find Jelly Filled at your favorite local quilt shop. Or you can find it on Amazon. Might be a good one to add to your Christmas wish list!
AND, in other news, I have a copy to give away thanks to Vanessa and C&T Publishing! Just leave a comment telling me your favorite precut strip quilt patterns to sew with.
I’ll pick a random winner on the morning of Monday, 11/11. GIVEAWAY CLOSED
This looks like a great book with lots of ways to use the precut strips I’ve collected!! I have layer cakes and jelly rolls, but for me, it’s so hard to open and use them!
