    can any tell me what this quilt is? (Jellyroll/fleese quilt)

    It is a quilt that is made of jelly rolls or long strips that is sewed onto a fleese backing of about 1 1/2 yards.

    I've heard it talked about but can't figure out how to do it or what it's called. I think you just take a strip and start sewing it onto the fleese, then add a strip (wrong sides together) to the top of that strip and then flip it to the fleese and sew that side down...and keep going till you get through.

    I'd like to find exact directions because I'd like to pick a pretty jellyroll and make one for gifts...But I don't know how much fabrick I'll need. Of course having never seen it, I might change my mind.

    If anyone knows about this method or if there is a pattern or instructions, I'd appreciate the information.

    I don't know what the name of it is but I did the same technique with a strip quilt made out of 2 1/2" strips. The only difference was that I used batting and a cotton backing. I cut my batting and backing a little bigger than I wanted the quilt to finish at and then I just sewed strips on top of the batting. I did draw a line across the batting at the top where I wanted to start the strips and then I drew a line down the middle of the batting. I pressed my strips in half and lined them up with the line down the middle of the batting so everything would be centered correctly. I would sew each strip on and then flip it down, press it in place and then pin on my next strip. It turned out well; centered and not wonky at all and completely quilted! Just put a binding and label on it and called it a day! I would call it a quilt as you go method but not sure if that is the appropriate term. .

    Here is a video tute that inspired me to try it on a throw size quilt http://quiltingtutorials.com/all/quilt/

    I gifted the quilt before I got a picture taken of it so I can't show you how it turned out

    When you do it NOT as a QAYG, one of it's names is lasagna. It's quite simple. Sew one strip down, either in the middle or at one end. if the strip is too long, cut off the excess to add to another. If it's short, sew 2 or more together. Add one strip after another until you have covered the area you wanted to cover, then bind it. I am not wild about it, but it is fast and as colorful as the scraps or jelly roll you use to make it.

    As for yardage requirements, with a jelly roll, figure out the length and with of what you want to make. If the jelly roll pieces are 40" of usable fabric x 2.5", you will get 2" of finished quilt top per strip for a 40" wide quilt. If you want a 60" quilt, you will need 30 strips, plus binding. I suspect that is going to be 2-3 rolls.

    this is a quilt as you go method (QAYG). there are many videos and tutorials on this. to make this method clearer, you put right sides together.

    this could be another place to start: http://www.ask.com/web?l=sem&ifr=1&q...5-CF8045301E6C

    it is simply a quilt as you go method- some people use fleece, some flannel, some batting-some batting & a backing- regardless the process is the same- using fleece you do need to be careful with stretch though- it can become (wonky) quite quickly if you don't pay attention- you should start the first strip at one end-then turn it & put the second strip starting at the other end- switch ends with each new strip to help keep everything straight.

    here is an example of one done on the diagonal. I used scraps, so I can't help you with the fabric requirements, but this is what they look like. I used batting and flannel backing for this one. The process is exactly as you described. you just need to figure out how big you want to make it. It's wrinkled because it sat on the shelf a couple of years before binding. the wash will take them out.

    I think the Lasagna quilt is what I was talking about. I'd forgot about the long strips.

    I like the jelly roll quilt above, one of the best arrangements I have seen.
