Jellyroll Sewing Machine Cover

Quilted sewing machine cover using jelly roll strips Here is my interpretation of a Moda Bakeshop Recipe designed by Margot Languedoc, Jelly Roll Cover Up. Margot sewed her strips together before sandwiching them to the backing and batting and then quilting. I laid out my backing face down, then batting [actually fleece], and finally the 2 1/2 inch strips were sewn together with a 1/4 inch seam, beginning at the top of the bottom strip and flipping up each strip and pressing before sewing down the next strip. This results in a each piece being quilted down as I went. All I did to finish the cover up was to insert two top curved end pieces wrong sides together. The ends were bound first, then the bottom edge. This cover up is for my Singer 201-2 in an oak Lotus treadle cabinet. I have another one to make for my elna Carina SU-66, which is made to fit into a cabinet right next to my Singer. It has a push button to lift the machine up to disclose the free arm--so it sits flush with the cabinet surface most of the time. The fold out covers to the two machine cabinets stand open all of the time. The end of one holds my White Super Lock 534W-2 Serger [it will need a cover, too], and the other surface allows me to spread out my sewing projects.


  1. Hi Carolyn, can you show a picture of your sides/ends? I like the idea of the cover design by Margot Languedoc however I do not want to leave the ends 'open'. From your description, it sounds like you may have designed in an adjustment for this. so I'm hoping you can show a picture of that, as I am not clear from your description.

    thank you

  2. Dear Michelle,

    I have now uploaded, as requested, a photo of the end of the machine cover. It is very effective at keeping dust off the machine because the end is closed. My stitching of the binding on the end is not as neat as the stitching around the bottom, but the alternating strips and floral binding help hide the imperfect stitching.

    Thanks for your request,
