    Hi,
    I made a quilt about 6 months ago, it was from a jelly roll of Bali Pops, I sewed three of them together, and then I think I cut them and put them together in some sort of fence/rail pattern. I decided to make another quilt the same, and I again sewed three strips from the jelly roll together. Now, I have all of these joined strips and I can't remember what to do with them. Each piece is made up of 3 strips from the jelly roll. I am looking for ideas of what to do with this to make an interesting quilt. Thanks in advance,
    Nancy

    Sounds like a rail fence pattern. Basically you press the strips you have sewn together, measure their width, then cut into squares that have that same dimension. The 3-strip squares are then placed to make a zigzag pattern.

    If you Google rail fence quilt images, you will see a lot of variations.

    I've also seen them done in a basket weave effect.
