    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.

    Wow!! Now I know what to make with the jelly rolls I have. I wonder if it would work as well with bali cuts? It should, shouldn't it? Hmmm, I wonder how many I have. I guess I need to go on a search of my sewing room.

    Thank you for this great idea.
