    I buy alot of mine from Green Fairy Quilts, they have sales on them and I stock up. I have also purchased some from Missouri Star Quilt Company for a reasonable price.

    Hi Michele,

    I have had success, recently, with making my own jelly rolls. Just select your fabric, either from your stash or select and purchase. Cut the strips two and a half by forty, or other size, as desired. Place strips in the order you want them on the roll and roll up. This works well for me. Good luck, Kaye

    I agree with NorseSal. Never found a Jelly Roll I considered a bargain, especially when it is so darn easy to make your own.

    Connecting Threads often have some good deals. Be sure to watch for the count in the rolls, they all seem to have a different number of strips, hence the different pricees.

    I like jelly rolls. I can get the whole fabric line all at once. Not many shops carry all the fabric in one line and do you think they will cut 1/16 yard of each one for you? I buy jelly rolls and layer cakes (10" squares). I think precuts are fantastic values. I buy mostly Moda pre cuts and I buy where ever there is a good sale.

    DD bought me a jelly roll from Connecting Threads for Christmas last year, I haven't made anything with it yet, I keep making other quilts, I hope to use it sometime this year.

    BTW, strip quilts are quick and easy quilts to make with jelly rolls. Here's a couple that I did.

    Me three. Been busy cutting batik strips ready for stitching. Love using the multi-colored batiks with the more solid 1895s and paired some of them with prints. Delicious. Backgrounds for my applique.

    I love precuts! Just getting back into quilting, I have no stash. I just buy jelly rolls, layer cakes, honey buns, and charm packs! Ebay and Missouri Star Quilt Co. are my favorite sites for them. And I can't forget Connecting Threads!

    http://fatquartershop.com has jelly rolls, I don't think the pricing is too bad.

    Eddie...since you mentioned Ebay, thought I'd tell you about my recent experience with "trying" to buy Jelly Rolls, etc. on there. First of all, I noticed that almost every piece has a bid on it. I finally found a couple that didn't have bids yet and were only hours away from closing so I put in a bid. I kept watching for someone to outbid me but they didn't and my bid stayed as the only one, so I thought I was home free. WRONG!!! Would you believe it got down to the final 2 seconds (!!!) and someone outbid me!!! I could have cried!! Too stressful for me...I'm making my own from now on :)

    BTW...love your quilts :)

    Agreed, I rarely do the auctions - I do the buy-it-now and be done with it. So I know exactly what I'm paying and if it seems like a good deal, I do it. Otherwise, move on.

    I have purchased quite a bit of hand dyed jelly rolls and charms and layer cakes from john3200 on ebay, they are so beautiful. I have contacted her and bought outright but she does have some up for bid now. Anita
