    I have never used a Jelly Rolls and I want to. How big of a quilt does a Jelly Roll make? Will 1 Jelly Roll make a Twin size quilt or will it make a bigger quilt?

    Thanks for any help.

    Jelly Rolls vary in the quantity of strips included. Many are 40 strips. If you were to sew them side by side, you'd end up with a piece approximately 80x42.

    There are many jelly roll patterns/books out there. Some call for a jelly roll and some yardage to make a large lap size or maybe even a twin.

    Thanks. I want to make a Twin size quilt so I guess 1 Jelly Roll will do it and then add borders.

    It would probably do depending on the pattern. If I were you I'd look for
    the pattern first. Some jelly rolls use a lot of background fabric so you
    can get away with just one. Also depends if you are adding a border or
    not.

    Borders are a lot of time to put on but, they are a good way to make a quilt bigger. I like all quilts better with borders.

    These pattern would only take a little extra at the top and the bottom to make a twin sized.

    I made a bargello with mine. One jelly roll made a twin size quilt. I just added some borders.
