    I used one JR and it measured 30 x 60 I don't remember how many times I sewed.......I should of kept track. However, when folded in half, it will make 2 baby quilts with boarders added............calla

    There are several Jelly Roll patterns at Missouri Star. The tutorials are great. I made the Summer in the Park, it turned out great and was easy.

    a jelly roll is normally 40 - 2 1/2" strips of fabric- so- sewn together- just as strips you would have 40"x80" if you sewed them both together the same way then sewed those together- you could have (about) 78"x 80" (figuring some trimming & seam allowance)
    if you then added borders you could make it a queen-
    if you do something with the strips besides just straight sewing them- it will make it less- since you loose 1/2" with every seam
    there are TONS of patterns for jelly roll quilts- strip quilts

    Look for a pattern called Two by Fours - with some extra fabric for borders this makes a nice twin size quilt out of one jelly roll.

    Oh wow! yolanda your quilt is beautiful it looks like a basket weave, very pretty and all out of a JR Wow!

    Ckcowl thank, you for the info on a JR and how much fabric is in one, Seeing this is my first JR I sure was in the dark on what to do with this gift.

    Fraydknot12326, thanks for the site, will look into that one..

    Thanks to all of the other replies they all helped a lot to understand a JR

    After receiving this as a gift I thought ...hummmm what will I do with this, but I was very excited to receive it..
    Again Thanks to all :-D
