I had never heard of the Jelly Roll until coming to this forum. Also have not seen them other than pictures. I was thinking of making my own but have some ?s. Approx. how long are the strips and how wide? How many in a roll and how many rolls too make a quilt? Sorry I sound so stupid. How else does one learn?

Marge, same here and now I am finding out many,many things I never knew :D
You can make your own. The Moda line makes them. They are the width of the fabric (usually 45 in) and you cut them in 2 inch strips.
I was thinking of making some too. I've bought them and they are so much fun to work with. You can make as many as you wish. I think Moda's are 40 strips- something like that. Joann's also has them but I haven't bought any.

You will have fun with your stripes. I thought about cutting all my stash into 2 1/2in stripes. Luckily I haven't had time. Lol

Thanks all of you. That's exactly what I wanted to know. I'm running out of storage and thought it would help to downsize. Then I can buy some more, huh. LOL

I like the store bought ones because it is all from a collection, so they all go togther And there are several books out there that feature quilts made from just jelly rolls, layer cakes (10 inch squares) and other pre cut fabrics. That way you take the guess woek out of finding coordinating fabrics,

Yes, the nice thing about jellyrolls is they are all different but all blend.

some jelly rolls are 20 to a roll of 1 1/2"
Be sure before you buy which ones you are getting.Does anybody have patterns to share using these rolls?

You can get honey buns which are smaller roll and the jelly rolls.

I bought a book for jelly rolls but you can find free patterns on www.modabakeshop.com. Lots of projects there.
