    Quilting Jelly Roll

    Look at the decorative stitches on your machine. I use what is called the serpentine stitch at the widest width and a length of 3 or 4. I stitch on top of each seam and don't worry if it is straight on the seam. The curves offset the straight seams. Quilting on the seams at the 2 inch intervals makes a nice rippling texture. The serpentine stitch is like a huge zigzag but has rounded points.

    I LOVE Baptist Fan! I use it for all my civil war repro quilts (some of my 30's, too)! I love it! It's so handy & adaptable! I even used it on one with football helmets in the fabric because the curve echoed the curve of the helmet.

    Me, too! Like I said earlier, I wish we could have a gallery or an album or whatever with them in it. I wonder who you contact about that? Maybe I'll ask Patrice...

    Serpentine stitch is a GREAT stitch to use one just about anything!

    I agree... it needs "softening up", I think.

    I bought two jelly rolls last week and plan on making two quilts or one large quilt.
