    JUST! Got an idea!
    If you haven't put a border on it yet - - stitch the last piece to the first piece (anyone for tube quilting??? ) ... anyway, after you have sewn the bottom strip to the top strip, find the section that will separate the lights into two - - then, you will have lights on the top and bottom, and the darks right in the middle where everyone might expect them!

    AngieS - Have you seen the "Keep it simple" quilt pattern? I think it might solve your problem with your color arrangement. I will look for my instructions tomorrow and hopefully can find my quilt top, too.

    Omak - that sounds like a great solution...

    And if you don't have a jelly roll, you can cut your own 40 strips, each 2 1/2" wide by the width of the fabric.
    Let me calculate this: if you get 50 x 64 and it is 32 strips high (after each 2 1/2" strip gives up 1/2" to seams), by 50" wide.
    32 X 50 = 1600 -- Yup, it works!

    Sorry - didn't have time to look for pattern today. BIL in hospital, ICU, end is close, and got a call for family to come. He is stable now but spent day at hosp. and got home late. Whether you can use the pattern or not it is a fun one and you might want to take a look. Would be a good one for a JR quilt. Will try tomorrow.

    UMMMM, I'm really knew to this and you'll see with my question? I get the jelly-roll idea but what was the width of the strips? Maybe there is a standard width, which is?

    Thanks,

    The standard measurement for a jelly roll is 40 strips, 2.5" wide by width of fabric (WOF). The child size quilt that we have started making at our Project Linus sew-in was 20 strips, 3" wide by WOF. The yield was a quilt approximately 45 x 50 inches. The strips are vertical, though. Our coordinator found out that if you divide the body into thirds before stitching the last join (rather than simply folding in half) the strips will end up going horizontally. I don't have any pictures of these ... apologies
