    2 1/2" wide for Jelly rolls
    1 1/2" wide for Honey Buns
    There are usually 42 strips, but some duplictes depending on the number of fabrics in the fabric line.

    There are a lot of patterns that use jelly rolls. Most fabric lines that have jelly rolls also have charm packs, layer cakes and fat quarters, which you can use with the jelly rolls. It just depends what you want to make. The advantage is not having to cut your own strips.

    The advantages are they're already cut and you get one strip from every fabric in the line.

    There are some very affordable booklets on Jelly Roll patterns that are really quick and easy. It sure does cut out the time on cutting and often saves money, since you are not having to buy several fabrics. Can be very quick and easy for log cabine quilts.
