    It works best for Jelly-rolls. Also random scraps that add up to 1600 inches long.

    [quote=fromthenestdesigns]Super Fast Jelly-roll Quilt
    Approximate finished size: 65” X 79”

    This idea was shared with me by a friend. I’ve written it up so I can share it. Enjoy!!!

    What you will need: 1 jelly roll
    1st border: 1/2 yard
    2nd border: 1 1/4 yards
    Directions: Sew all the jellyroll strips end to end in random order. Cut the selvages off as you go.
    You will have a very long strip of fabric approximately 1600 inches long. (40 strips x 40”)
    Important: Cut 20” off of the beginning of the long strip of fabric and throw it in your stash. You won’t be using it. This will make it so your seams will be staggered as you sew them together.
    Now find the 2 ends of the strip and put right sides together and start sewing!!! Sew down the long side of the strip to the end and cut the loop at the end of the strip. You now have a very long strip that is 2-jellyroll strips wide.
    If you want to at this point, you can press them open, but pressing is really not necessary until you have the whole thing sewn. Remember this is supposed to be a fun and FAST quilt. Don’t stress over anything!

    Next...find the two ends of this long strip again and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end again. You will now have a strip that is 4– jellyroll strips wide.

    Now... find the two ends of this long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end. You will now have a strip that is 8– jellyroll strips wide.

    Again...find the two ends of the long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end. You will now have a that is 16– jellyroll strips wide.

    For the last time…..find the two ends of the long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end.
    You will now have a that is 32– jellyroll strips wide.

    You are finished!!!
    You now have the center of your quilt.
    It should measure approximately 50” x 64”
    Square it up.

    Borders are next:
    1st border: Cut 6—2 1/2 inch strips. Join together.
    Measure and apply borders as shown.
    2nd border: Cut 7—6” strips. Join together.
    Measure and apply as shown.[/quote

    It looks similar, but they have cut up the jelly-roll into shorter segments. This one you don't cut them up. Thanks for sharing. I'd never seen that one before. Looks fun too!

    WOW!!! That looks awesome!!! I love how bright and cheerful it turned out. I LOVE the white border, it really sets it off. Thanks a bunch for sharing!

    Thanks, it was a funky jelly roll.
    Could not figure out what else to do with it and this project came up so perfect!
    It is going to my mom for her Mother's Day present, she will get it next time she comes down for a visit.

    I got a wild hair a few months ago and cut up TONS of fabric into strips that were: 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3", 3.5" and 5" ... so, now I have a container of totally unrelated strips in those widths. I am thinking:
    the formula is to end up with 1600 inches of fabric, so if I took and cut the WOF strips in half, then sewed those fabrics, end to end, it will look a bit more scrappy. But, not today ... it will just have to go on my "to do" list ;) ... I just really enjoy being able to put a lot of different colors through on a pretty much mindless pattern ...
    another idea I have (especially for those quilts where I ended up with a bunch of lights together?) ... use some fusible web and create forms or Sunbonnet Sue or something like that ... stitch them onto the "blank" spaces and the rest would look very planned and scrappy

    Thanks, I thought a white border would help define it then I could use the larger border a print.
    I made the center, had both borders on in less than a day. Started early in the morning this past Friday, stopped and went to guild meeting, came home and finished.
    It is now sandwiched and ready to quilt.
    I ended up piecing the back as oops I didn't have enough fabric to make the back out of the choice I wanted to do it in. So did some more end to end, have a few strips of noodles in the middle with the print on the outside then 2 white on outside of that.
    Next time I will make sure I have enough of one fabric for the back.
    Lesson learned lol. I had fun with it.

    I don't think you need a one piece backing!
    More and more, I find people putting orphan blocks, different fabrics, even different colors in different sizes on the back. It is about making the quilt not matching the fabric! LOL

    LOL I really wanted to have it all one piece, oh well. Not a huge deal. Gave me a chance to learn how to piece backings as well. So I learned something new - am new to quilting.
