    I have not done anything with strips and one of my daughters said she is sending me a "jelly roll" ... is this something worthwhile? Just looking for opinions before I try to find some info on using strips for quilts ... any suggested reading?

    Thanks everyone!! :D

    I love the jelly roll strips that have 40(2 1/2" strips). I like the large variety of fabrics. If you google jelly roll quilt patterns you will find a lot.

    Jelly rolls, turnovers, candy bars, layer cakes, honey buns. Wonder why they named them desserts? Moda bake shop. One website calls jelly rolls, sushi rolls,.LOL.

    Missouri Star Quilt Co. has a few YouTube videos on how to use jellyrolls and other dessert named precut packages (honeybun, dessert roll, turnover). Here's a few for the jellyroll.
