    OK I know its a roll of strips of 44 length but what size strips are they and how many strips are there on the roll?? I've seen tutorials on using them that are pretty neat..

    They are 2.5 inches wide and there are usually 40 strips per roll.

    The first time I heard the term "jelly roll" - I thought they were referring to my "spare tyre" (the extra weight around my waist). hehehe... :)

    not fatten but can deplete you wallet!! I am just finishing a quilt using 1 charm pack in the center with white strips around each charm and then charms cut in half for the boarder. Jelly rolls I've used for a "Fraction in a roll" quilt. Love the time saving aspect of all these different cuts.

    If anything, they'll make you *loose* weight when you lock yourself up to play with them...and forget to eat. LOL

    I just want sites and catalogs to put the measurements on the pages with all these newly titled cuts of fabrics for those of us who don't know what in the world they are talking about. they might make more sales that way! :D
