    Search this board for: jelly roll quilt. There is a discussion there that gives all the instruction up to king size.

    It is a quilt made with one jelly roll. Search "1600 quilt" on google for instructions.

    If I were to make one this big I might make a sketch to see what it would look like if the strips went from the head of the bed to the foot of the bed as opposed to side to side. If it looked good, I'd make it like that instead.

    I made a smaller one, just out of scraps for a baby quilt. I figured I needed 24 strips at 36 inches to give be a 36 X 48 quilt top. the length I wanted was 48 inches, I used 2 1/2 inch strips, so I divided that by 2 and got 24 strips. so multilpy 24 X 36= 936 inches I needed... so from there figure how wide you want it ( my 36 inch) by how long you want it ,size of finished strip, mine was 2 inches, time length you want(which if using 2 1/2 inch strips would be divided by 2) this should work... boy, I sure hope this is clear as mud. I have reread it 5 times and I still understand it. but you know how that can be. Vicki

    I cut my own strips and instead of making them 2.5" wide, I bought 1/4 yd of each fabric, so I cut my strips 3" wide. That 1/2" per strip add about 20 inches to the length of my quilt. It didn't add anything to the width.

    A group of us made them together, so I could compare theirs (which they used 2.5" strips) to mine.
