    Jelly Roll Need Help from someone experienced please

    Someone here on the forum had pictures of a beautiful 1600 jelly roll quilt which she cut her strips into smallier pieces. I thought both her quilts were beautiful. I have a print jelly roll, Moda Twirl and moda Marbles which I would like to use together. Someone suggested cutting 2 1/2 in cuts and adding these randomly in the quilt or after every strip? Since the solid roll is very colorful do I just use a couple different ones or use them all? Since I am new, I would love a pattern for this quilt. I know it is probably very simple but I need the direction and pictures of what I should do. I am not at the point where I can just put something together off the top of my head.

    Any guidance would be appreciated. I want my quilt, for my granddaughter to be a pretty one.

    Thanks so much!

    Here is the link to the article you are asking about
    Jelly Roll 1600 Quilts

    Here is the link to the directions and video some of us started with
    http://www.heirloomcreations.net/sew...lly-roll-1600/

    There are other instructions and variations. I made my 1st one with the strips at an angle but the one you are referring to the strips are joined together straight.

    I'd like the directions of the one with the 2 1/2 in squares added. Have you seen those directions anywhere?

    I made one but I confess to just adding the 2 1/2" squares in between each full length strip. Here is a picture of mine.
