Bali Pops and/or Jelly Rolls

anitastitchNovember 5, 2011

I just bought my first pack of Bali Pops. Have any of you ever worked with those. For those who haven't heard of them, they are pre-cut strips: 2.5" wide by width of fabric (44"). The Bali Pops are batiks, but I've seen others (Jelly Rolls) that are prints. Any recommended patterns?

Most of us have used these. There are so many patterns I don't know where to start. If you're not real experienced, you might try the Still Stripping book of Eleanor Burns. It's filled with things made from strips.

There are free patterns at the Moda Bake Shop. They have lots of patterns using the pre-cuts.

Hi Anita,

I'm working w/ my first set, haven't really done more than play around w/ them having looked at some patterns online. I've also looked at free Hoffman patterns (the maker of Bali Pops) as they offer some nice, free patterns.

some playing around

a bit more

I'd posted this w/ an explanation a few months ago as "Playing around w/ Bali Pops", or something like that as I ended up w/ these blocks (I misunderstood a pattern instruction).

This is one that I made at Camp Cheerio - still need to add borders but it took LESS THAN 2 HOURS! I used Bali's cappuccino jelly roll. I really like how easy it was to put together.

You can download the pattern free frin using this link. Good luck with your jelly roll!

The only thing I have ever made with Bali pops or jelly rolls is the Diamond Island Tote from Aunties Two. It is huge and I use it to carry "stuff" to guild meetings. Never fails to get a comment from someone. I just love it.
I am not affiliated with them but here is the link to the aunties two website. Scroll almost to the bottom to see the pattern. Just below it is the Biscuit Basket, currently on my to do list.

I like working w/ jelly rolls and bali pops. I'm just starting a log cabin with 2 pops (Strawberry Fields & Cotton Candy). In August I did a 2-piece square within a square using a Moda jelly. The possibilities are almost endless. Twisted Strips is another good pattern. The problem isn't WHAT to do as much as WHICH to do. Have fun choosing!
