    I have not done anything with strips and one of my daughters said she is sending me a "jelly roll" ... is this something worthwhile? Just looking for opinions before I try to find some info on using strips for quilts ... any suggested reading?

    Thanks everyone!! :D

    I love the jelly roll strips that have 40(2 1/2" strips). I like the large variety of fabrics. If you google jelly roll quilt patterns you will find a lot.

    Jelly rolls, turnovers, candy bars, layer cakes, honey buns. Wonder why they named them desserts? Moda bake shop. One website calls jelly rolls, sushi rolls,.LOL.

    Missouri Star Quilt Co. has a few YouTube videos on how to use jellyrolls and other dessert named precut packages (honeybun, dessert roll, turnover). Here's a few for the jellyroll.

    Check out a book called "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott(sp?). It has several nice patterns and they are fairly easy to use.

    I love jelly rolls!! I especially like that they are coming out with solid color ones now. I did a quilt where I used a normal jelly roll and a Moda Wheat. Quick and easy and looks great.

    Jelly roll quilts are really fun and fast to do. I learned using them from youtube videos by Missouri Star Quilt Co. They have a lot of tutorials on youtube and also on their website. I love the lady's teaching.

    Good luck and enjoy

    Talking of naming them desserts, did you know the older phones are called "candy bars"....

    Seems the "dessert" idea crosses mediums....Hmmmmm

    Here is a picture of one I am doing with a honey bun (1 1/2in) strips. Same as jelly roll but smaller width strips. Need to add boarders.

    Here is a quilt I made for a friend from a jelly roll--if I remember right, I cut a few strips from my stash, too. But it was all done with 2 1/2" strips.
