I love the jelly roll quilts ya'll have done from this tutorial. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-44258-1.htm I want to make one from batiks about 90x90 finished. I've tried doing the math several ways but am just confusing myself...math is NOT my strong suit! Would someone double check my math or help me figure out how many strips I need?
According to my questionable figures, if I use 60 strips I should end up with a length of 78 3/4 (60 x 42" = 2520" divided in half 5 times = 78.75"), but it will still only be about 64" wide.
I saw a picture of one somewhere on the board that had a cool coin border. The was a 2" inner border, the coins, then a 2" outer border. If I made the coins 4", that would give me an 8" border for a total of 16" added. That leaves me 10" short on the width.
My challenge, I think, is how to do this to add 10" to the width? That would be 10 " added to the length of each fold.
Did I totally confuse everyone?!?!
