    I ordered 4 JR's from you yesterday, I didn't realize it was from you. I can't wait to get them!!

    Anyway, they're on my site now (I hope I don't get in trouble for saying so) and the link is always in my signature.

    Nan - as you know, I'm one of the grateful horde!
    How wonderful that you actually made so much effort to choose and cut your own jelly rolls. I bet it did take a lot of time! Your fabric combinations were impossible to resist.
    I also loved that not only do you have the stacked bolt view, so we see how the fabrics look in combination, but you also have pictures of each individual fabric and the ability to order yardage! I always copy and past those pictures into my own files when I order the fabric, which makes it great later on when I want to design the quilt with EQ!

    So..... Tada! You have won the Jelly Roll Trifecta!!! No pinked edges, we can see every fabric and know how they look together, and we can rely on them being cut well!


    Anybody who would like to order and would like $5 off with the current newsletter coupon - Just type SAVEFIVE in the "special requests" box on the first page of the checkout process. They will deduct it when they process your order, but it won't show up in the shopping cart. (Nan gave me permission to share this.)

    I too am thirilled with being able to really see more of what is in the roll. The ability to order some of the same yardage , REALLY HAPPY! Sliced Bread just took a second seat to this!

    I agree that purchasing jelly rolls w/ pics of all fabrics is a good idea.
    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!

    Lori, you shouldn't have mentioned metallic fabrics in that other thread. Now look what you made me do!

    Thanks, Linda, it turns out that I have way more metallic fabrics than I thought. I've never brought them all together before. (I've made quite a mess in the back room now...)

    We were away for a week and your jelly strips were here waiting when I got home.
    Nan, I thought they were beautiful in your photos, but in person, they just take my breath away. My daughter immediately tried to make off with them... all 3 sets! LOL! I am sure she is going to dream up a project and try to sweet talk me into letting her have one set, because she knows i won't be able to resist her enthusiasm.

    I love the idea of seeing the bolts with the jelly rolls.
