    Hi from the Thumb!
    How many strips? Jelly rolls can vary.
    with coordinating borders you can really add to the size.

    Watch this recent post:
    I humbly request suggestions for jellyroll quilt pattern

    many of the pattern links give the finished quilt size.

    I have one that I did in a rail fence, that with borders I am going to make it a twin, It came out pretty long, and I still have some fabric left over. I think it depends on the pattern and how many borders you add

    I've wondered this too & didn't realized jelly rolls come in different sizes. I've never bought one but see so many pretty collections and I like strip piecing so it would be a natural! I learn so much reading everyone's post!
