I just bought this pattern off ebay. In looking at the photos of quilts made up, I can't tell if the strips used on the colored part of the quilt are jelly roll size or bigger.
If anyone has this pattern or made this quilt, could you please look and tell me if the colored parts of the quilt are the width of a jelly roll or bigger?
If they're bigger, would a GO! die work for it?

Thanks for you help. I want to get the fabric if I need to (have jellies I can use if they're jelly roll width)

Carol :)

If this is it it says fat quarters. just lookng at the picture alone I would have thought jelly rolls, too.

I just looked on-line and found another pattern. The above linked quilt finishes 55" x 67". Counting the number of strips across, I came up with 27. So, it appears that the finished strip would be 2" so it would use jelly rolls.

I just pulled this out today. It's a UFO I've had for about 4 years now. I started this in a class so we used fat quarters and cut them.
Looking at the instruction, it might be doable to use jelly rolls but then again I don't know, I'm not good at "reinventing" the directions on patterns LOL!!! I think it'd be more tedious work using jelly rolls since the 3" strips are cut from a 10.5x20" block/strip if that makes sense.

Yes, the strips are 3", but I'm sure you could adapt it to the jelly roll, you would just have to make more to get the width and length of the quilt you want.

Thank you all for checking for me.

I could "maybe" do it with my jelly roll, but wouldn't the whole quilt pattern then have to be adapted?

I might could put it into EQ to help me, but knowing me (not being down on myself, just being honest) I'd screw it up somehow. EQ and I don't get along sometimes. So far the score is EQ 10, Me 4

2.5" is the short side; not sure what you are trying to adapt?
