    Here is pictures of some. It looks to be a way to piece hexagons. I guess using jelly rolls give the name jellygons

    Hmmm. I must admit these don't thrill me at all.

    looks like jellies cut in a trapezoid shape, 2 traps make a hex....way too many seams to match for me.

    Looks like everything old is new again. Looks like my grandmothers flowergarden hexagon design but done in a different pattern.
    This is another tactic used to sell small cuts of fabric for twice the price. I personally can't see why so many people buy them. Jellyrolls and all these sweet names, but are they really worth the price? Am I missing something here?

    Interesting. I don't think I'll be making these any time soon.

    Your link leads to Cowbelles Patchwork in Australia. I think we should all go there for a class on how to make jellygons. Yes?!!
    I can dream, can't I?
