    Search this board for: jelly roll quilt. There is a discussion there that gives all the instruction up to king size.

    It is a quilt made with one jelly roll. Search "1600 quilt" on google for instructions.

    If I were to make one this big I might make a sketch to see what it would look like if the strips went from the head of the bed to the foot of the bed as opposed to side to side. If it looked good, I'd make it like that instead.

    I made a smaller one, just out of scraps for a baby quilt. I figured I needed 24 strips at 36 inches to give be a 36 X 48 quilt top. the length I wanted was 48 inches, I used 2 1/2 inch strips, so I divided that by 2 and got 24 strips. so multilpy 24 X 36= 936 inches I needed... so from there figure how wide you want it ( my 36 inch) by how long you want it ,size of finished strip, mine was 2 inches, time length you want(which if using 2 1/2 inch strips would be divided by 2) this should work... boy, I sure hope this is clear as mud. I have reread it 5 times and I still understand it. but you know how that can be. Vicki

    I cut my own strips and instead of making them 2.5" wide, I bought 1/4 yd of each fabric, so I cut my strips 3" wide. That 1/2" per strip add about 20 inches to the length of my quilt. It didn't add anything to the width.

    A group of us made them together, so I could compare theirs (which they used 2.5" strips) to mine.

    If there are 40 strips in each, the 1600 inches you start with finishes at 40 x 80 or so. 4 jelly rolls would yield about 80 x 80, if you use the same number of "turns" as the original pattern.

    Oops, the actual number are different than above. The original size is 48 x 64 using one jelly roll. If you use 4, you will start with 6400 inches. Sew once, and it is 4" x 3200", twice it's 8"x1600", three times 16" x 800"' four is 32"x 400", 5 is 64" x 200", 6 is 128"x100", less the seam allowances. the seam allowances will use about 12" from the width and. 4" from the length, so 116x96 or so. Sounds about right for a queen, stripes going side to side.

    I did several quilt tops last year using this as a way of using up some of 2.5" strips in coordinated colors. They went together fast.

    Do a search on this board for Super Fast Jelly Roll Quilt. If you have the time, read thru all 57 pages for a wealth of info!

    A jelly roll strip 2-1/2 x 42 yields about 82 square inches. A queen quilt 100 x 100 needs 10000 square inches. 10000/84 equals a smidge over 119 strips. You'd need about 3 jelly rolls to make a queen size. Might be fun to make the center out of the small baby quilt 1600 and then log cabin the rest of the rolls around that, mitering all the corners.

    Forget the math, I want to know if you plan to make it like the jelly roll race, sewing one LONG strip? That would be... well, it would be fun to watch.

    To use four jelly rolls would be too much to handle. Make four tops from using one jelly roll each and then sew the four tops together. That is about the only way to do it with out a big tangled mess.
    Got fabric?

    I just made one this weekend and used the equivalent of three jelly rolls and yes I made it the same way, you can do it in three sections and then join the sections together if you want.

    Mine was done in blues, yellows, teals some light cream with blue or yellow designs.

    Have fun, took me about 4 hours to make.
