    I thought it was going to be a question about pasta. I love noodles.

    I don't know what they are in quilting, though.

    They were called noodles in the 2 1/2" strip swap. Didn't use mine yet.

    So 2 1/2" x width of fabric.

    You might find a few if you google jelly roll quilts.

    Hee Hee-I thought it was the ones you cook too.
    I'm making them tomorrow--I never buy them.

    One use I have for them goes as follows:

    Center a large patterned piece of fabric on a batting and backing. Quilt that portion. I used a fishy print for my first one, which I did as a demo at our fair. I had cut the corners off a 22x 36" piece. Then I worked around it, log cabin fashion, with the noodles. At each 'corner', cut off the extra. Keep on going until you have the batting mainly covered. Sew in the corners you had cut off. Add a border and bind. Mine took 2 1/2 hours for a nice baby quilt (up to the binding). I was also doing basic quilting lessons and answering questions at the same time. Don't try this without some kind of foundation.

    The picture is a later one I made without a foundation, not as good as the original.

    I love this idea for a quick finish , that is if I can figure out how to do it. I also seen one on here some where that was also like a giant logcabin block, I really liked it too.

    I thought you were going to ask a question about cooking noodles, or the long tubes that you use when swimming. They're called noodles also.

    I guess mine are different. Mine 2 1/2 in strips WOF are called Jelly Rolls. I guess they are both sticky though.
