National Sew a Jelly Roll Day, observed annually on the third Saturday of September and occurring on September 16 this year, is a day on which quilters have the opportunity to sew their many pre-cut and unused fabric bundles, commonly known as ‘jelly rolls.’ A quilter can contribute to the ultimate quality and functionality of the quilted material by utilising a variety of effects when sewing. The quilter manages these effects by manipulating such things as the type and thickness of the material, the stitch length and style, pattern design, and assembling and cutting.

The background of National Sew a Jelly Roll Day

The word ‘quilt’ derives from the Latin term ‘culcita,’ which means ‘a bolster or cushion.’ The term is believed to have been first recorded in England in the thirteenth century. However, the piecing and quilting techniques have been used for clothing and home furnishings in various parts of the globe for thousands of years.

The earliest known quilted garment is depicted on an Egyptian carved ivory figure of a Pharaoh, which dates back to the First Dynasty of ancient Egypt, around 3400 B.C. In 1924, archaeologists discovered a quilted floor covering somewhere in Mongolia, and it is believed that the covering dates back between 100 B.C. and 200 A.D. Quilting has been a part of the needlework tradition in Europe since roughly the fifth century, with early objects containing Egyptian cotton, suggesting that Egyptian and Mediterranean trade may have facilitated the spread of the technique.

After the return of the Crusaders from the Middle East, quilted bedding and other similar products began to appear in Europe around the 12th century. Under maille or plate armour, or in lieu of the same, mediaeval quilted battle garments were worn. These garments would eventually evolve into the quilted doublet, which became fashionable for men in Europe between the 14th and 17th centuries. The oldest known surviving European bed quilt is the Tristan quilt from Sicily, which dates back to the 14th century and is composed of linen and wool padding.
