    Hello, and welcome from Missouri! I have never used them, but have seen many beautiful quilts using them. Use the search here to look for ideas.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California. There are many many patterns out there that use the jelly rolls or strips. You don't even need a "Strip" pattern, if your pieces in the blocks you want to made are less that 2 1/2" wide you can use them in anything!!

    Greetings from the Sacramento CA area. Make sure NOT to prewash them. You'd have a big mess on your hands. I think they make great strip quilts.

    Welcome to this great board.
    Eleanor Burns uses 2 1/2 strips for her log cabin pattern.
    They can be used for the tube pattern also with a 4 1/2 inch backgrd fabric. It uses 2- 2 1/2 inch strips.
