    In our country these kind of quilts called "lasagna" (like the italian pasta).

    This is my version, with two "rollimopsi" (a jelly-roll with only 21 stripes (7 fabrics) ), one in yellows, one in oranges. The green fabric was an old tablerunner (printed cotton).

    Your grandchilds will not remember, whether your windos were neat and clean, when they sleep under your quilts....

    What would happen if the first piece cut off was added elsewhere?

    I was told to stitch the strips together on the diagonal - your instructions say straight across.

    Confused ... that's me.

    OH, I see the person over my post did it diagonally!

    What a great idea!

    My Mom passed away in November of last year and I got some of her clothes and I wanted to make quilts for my grandchildren. I can do this with the skirts and dresses and it would be really be easy to cut those in the same size. It would also enable me to do a lot in the future also.
    thanks for the idea.

    Wow what a fun idea, I am going to have to try to make one too!

    @Kaysue4, I think you are on to something there, what a great way to remember your mom. A quilt is something that your grandchildren will cherish forever!

    Thanks for the ideas. I didn't have strips but I did have scads of large rectangles obtained at a yard sale. All different lengths but about the same widths. I just layer a bunch in several stacks then pared them to the same width. Sewed them end to end & used your method after that. Had a lap quilt top finished even with 3 young grandsons running around & outing to beach, park, etc.
    Great method

    Can't believe how easy this is...thanks so much for sharing this! I've had a jelly-roll sitting around for over a year and have been waiting to figure out what to do with it...now I know!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.

    I really like the idea of sewing the strips at an angle. Thank you for posting your picture.

    I have seen this idea before, thanks for the tut.
    Let God be your quilt and wrap you in His loving care.

    I'm glad I kept this update to view at this much later time! I have a couple of odd-size jelly rolls - one with 35 strips and the other with 26. Both width are 2 1/2 inches, but I'm going to have fun!

    Thank you, ladies!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!
