Can't help with what you have done but maybe this is the link you are talking about that tells about the different sizes of the jelly roll race quilt.

Osewme, this is exactly what I needed. I printed it out and now I will know what I am doing. I did it right but the measurement is not what I wanted so I now have two quilts to finish. Next time I have the How to scale your jelly roll race quilt to be just the size you want. Thanks so much everyone for all your help. I don't feel so lost now.

Is this what you are looking for ?

I had the same result with my jelly roll race except mine was something like 130 inches long! I had no idea what I did wrong but was pretty sure something was wrong. Now I know how to finish mine into the size it's meant to be. Glad you opened up your thread.

These jelly roll quilts started out using a standard jelly roll, which is a certain number of strips all the same length. It should work out to the specified quilt size then. Good luck

Sometimes if I am in a dilemma like this I just have to walk away and go do something different and when I come back the whole situation looks more clear to me. Good luck to you and it sounds like you are getting good advice from others here on the board
