Jelly Roll Quilts & More — Review by Down Under Quilts
Kimberly Einmo shows you how to turn those delicious little packs of pre-cut strips, squares, and triangles into fun and fabulous quilts. Ten quilts plus four one-block wonders will entice you to get ready, get set, and sew! (Alternate cutting requirements are given so you can work from yardage also.) The introduction is simple and to the point and the instructions are easy to follow. -- www.downunderquilts.com.au | 7

Einmo’s “Jelly Roll Quilts & More” — Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
Kimberly Einmo’s “Jelly Roll Quilts & More” tells how to use pre-cut strips, squares and triangles, and pairs stories, design suggestions and more with its instructions. Ten quilts plus four one-block wonders are outstanding presentations. --James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, The Midwest Book Review, The Needlecraft Shelf, March 2010. (Posted on 3/15/10)
Jelly Roll Quilts & More — Review by Barb, Me & My Sister Designs
Check out the jelly roll on the cover…Its our Birdie! I admit that it’s what drew me to the book, but after I looked inside I had to have it. Not only does the book have a beautiful “Birdie” jelly roll on the cover, but it also has some great quilts that I hope to make someday. I think that my favorite is “Honey Bun Cabins”.

I love the fun tips that she (Einmo) gives throughout the book, especially the one about fusible web not storing well. So don’t stock up when it is on sale. I did not know that!!!

It’s by Kimberly Einmo and gets two thumbs up! Good Job! (Posted on 3/4/10)
Lots of quick and easy quilt patterns to try. — Review by Kristen
The title says it all. There is a lot more to this book than just patterns. Not only did I find a lot of great quilts to make using 2-1/2” strips and 10” squares, but Kimberly has included a wealth of knowledge and fantastic tips to make quilting a true joy. Reading through her directions and helpful hints is almost like having your own personal quilt instructor right beside you. The directions and diagrams are well laid out and very easy to follow. There’s even a few recipes thrown in as an added bonus, which means you can make some yummy treats after you’re done making some of Kimberly’s yummy quilts. --Kristen, Connecting Threads (Posted on 2/26/10)

Jelly Roll Quilts & More “enthusiastically recommended” by Midwest Book Review — Review by James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
Overall Rating
Quilting is a form of fabric art that is as practical and useful in its finished forms as it is creative and fun in its accomplishment. Especially is this so when even the most novice needlecrafter has access to do-it-yourself instruction guides like Kimberly Einmo’s “Jelly Roll Quilts & More.” This 96-page compendium of ten quilts and four “one-block-wonders,” is profusely and superbly illustrated throughout while offering truly “user friendly” step-by-step instructions. Of special note is the opening chapter advising beginners on how to get the most out of what is to follow. Enhanced with a useful list of resources, perhaps the most unique distinction is the concluding chapter on how to hold a “Jelly Roll Quilt Retreat” with friends. Ideal for the novice quilter, “Jelly Roll Quilts & More” is enthusiastically recommended for the needlecraft reference collections of community libraries, and has a great deal to offer even the more experienced quilter looking for novel and entertaining project ideas. --James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, The Midwest Book Review, “The Library Bookwatch,” February 2010. (Posted on 2/18/10)
Jelly Roll Quilts & More by Kimberly Einmo — Review by Joyce Finch
Overall Rating
Your new jelly roll & more book just hit my mailbox – WOW, wow! I can't decide where to start!! I really appreciate how you organized the "materials needed" at the beginning of each quilt. My challenge to you now is to find a way for me to combine a honeybun and charm pack(s) into something. (Posted on 2/12/10)
Jelly Roll Quilts & More — Review by Iris C Frank
Overall Rating
Jelly rolls, honey buns, layer cakes, and turnovers, once attainable only in a bakery, now abound in fabric shops. Author, Kimberly Einmo explains each (along with charm and fat quarter packs) and concludes her introduction to Chapter Two, Get Set with: "These laser precision cut bundles of calorie-free sweetness are irresistible…" which truly they are.

In her introduction, Einmo explains, "I want to be your personal quilt coach," and she does a great job of being just that. Beginning with the first chapter, Get Ready, she reviews the basics we sometimes forget in our hurry to create yet another quilt. From that point, clear graphics, numerous valuable "top tips" superimposed on colorful jelly rolls throughout the book, and detailed instructions for "quick, easy, fast and fabulous quilts" make it mandatory reading if you contemplate adding, or already have, any of those wonderful "eye candy" packs in your stash.

The beautifully, coordinated wide assortment of fabrics in such packs lend themselves to creating any of the 15 colorful, eye-catching quilts detailed in the book. For good measure, Einmo includes some delectable recipes as well as a section on how to host a "Jelly Roll Retreat". Truly a fun book to read!

Jelly Roll quilts and more — Review by Robin F
Overall Rating
This easy to use guide to quilting is colorful, inspiring and encouraging. Ms. Einmo talks directly to her reader and gives tips along the way which will help beginners and experienced quilters alike. The easy to follow directions with helpful illustrations and colorful quilts to drool over will inspire you to create. There are also recipes and ideas for having a "girls night in" for quilting so you can share the ideas in this book with your quilting friends. (Posted on 2/6/10)
Jelly Roll Quilts and More — Review by Ami Simms
Overall Rating
Enthusiastic, bubbly, energetic…I’m not describing a new delicious soft drink, but your new quilting guru, Kimberly Einmo. OK, she may be caffeinated too, but in a good way. Einmo, by the way, is like Einstein. The E is silent.

In her new book Jelly Roll Quilts & More (AQS, 2010) Kimberly shares 14 quilt patterns all made with, as the title implies, Jelly Rolls. For the uninitiated she defines Jelly Rolls and various other types of these pre-cut fabric strips like Honey Buns, Layer Cakes, Charm Packs, and Turnovers. Who knew!  (She also offers yardage requirements if you’d rather use up your stash.)

Each pattern is introduced with a personal little story, recipes for gooey deserts, snacks, and soups are interspersed throughout, and there are scores of tips and invitations to Try This! Kimberly’s “extras” make the book a fun read. She speaks to the quilting lifestyle rather than just offering a pattern book. She even includes a fun “how-to” chapter to host your very own Jelly Roll Retreat with your quilting friends!

Like having a friend in your sewing room — Review by Pat
Overall Rating
This book offers a different approach than many of those currently out there on the market, and I found it to be a refreshing change. It reads a little bit like a blog & goes in a similar (but not identical) personal/chatty direction that a famously exuberant male quilter used in his magazine. But it’s all Kimberly Einmo. Her unique voice comes across loud and clear in the book. There are tons of us out here who really respond to that. Even my totally nonquilter, non-artistic-in-any-way-shape-or-form sister was impressed. She said that looking through the book gave her more of a sense of what I go through to assemble a quilt, but in a way that made sense even to her. And she liked the recipe for Nuts & Bolts!

I think many quilters are looking for this type of approach to quilting, and Ms. Einmo is "a right person at the right time" to help the process along. If I were a brand new quilter (I'm probably "intermediate"), I would not be intimidated by the book. I'd be encouraged to try some of the quilts, feeling that, as the author says in her introduction, that I had a friend who knew what she was doing right by my side as I worked.

The book appeals to more experienced quilters as well. I’d be willing to bet those quilters will love the quilt designs and be able to find tips that will make their quilting life easier and their quilty outlook refreshed. The fact that the quilt designs don’t look “dumbed down” because they employ pre-cuts is huge. I can see an experienced quilter enjoying the simplicity of using pre-cuts, but also enjoying the fact that the resulting quilts don’t LOOK simplistic.

Although you don't need to use the tools recommended by the author (a triangle/flying geese ruler and a ruler designed especially for pre-cuts), they are very helpful, making the subcuts so much easier. One of the other many thoughtful touches is that directions are also provided for those who want to use fabric from their stash instead of (or in addition to) the pre-cuts.

Useful book, fresh approach, great tips, very nice designs and impeccable, well thought out directions. Buy it and enjoy! (Posted on 1/27/10)
Jelly Rolls are not for Breakfast! — Review by Penny Haren
Overall Rating
This book is simply a good read! Jelly Roll Quilts & More by Kimberly Einmo is a pleasant surprise. After all, who would think someone could come up with ANYTHING new and creative with 2 1/2″ strips – let alone a baker’s dozen – but she does! They are not only creative, they utilize the fabric to its full potential. And, if you want to use your stash, there are cutting instructions for that too. --Penny Haren, Checkers Newsletter, http://www.checkernewsletter.com/?p=2620 (Posted on 1/26/10)
