    Jelly Rolls?

    I went to AC Moore last week to get a cross stitch kit and came across some pre-cut fabric and jelly rolls. Has anyone used these? What did you make? About what size quilt will it make?

    Check out Jenny's video for Missouri Star Quilt Co. She has lots of tutorials that use pre-cuts. A pretty one for jelly rolls is Summer In The Park. There are some examples posted on QB.

    I hate picking out 40-45 different fabrics. Jelly rolls do this for you. I made 1 quilt using jelly rolls and love all the color/patterns that came in it. I never would have found or chosen all those great colors! There are alot of really nice patterns using jelly rolls. Also there may be less waste using them since you do not have to buy fabric and then cut it to 2 1/2" strips.

    When I want something to do but not have to put alot of brain power into it I go for the jellies. Have made a ton of jelly roll race quilts for kids etc. I can sew/quilt without having to plan measure cut etc. I love them.
    Quilt outside of the box!
