    Remember that Jelly Roll Race Quilt with Squares?

    A while back someone posted a quilt showing how they added random squares to a jelly roll race quilt. I've spent the last 40 minutes trying to find it on this board. Anyone remember where it is? I thought I bookmarked it, but can't find it. Help?

    ​I think it had little white squares in it? I will look back in my profile and see if I can find it as I am pretty sure I commented on how lovely it was. I will update this post if I can find it.

    It was posted by Juztme under the title My 'Try It' Quilt on 04-20-2013. I would do a direct link if I knew how but you should be able to type in the title in the search box. Hope this is the one you are looking for.

    The tutorial on that site is absolutely wonderful. I love it. A little while ago I bought several packages of 2 1/2" wild batik strips (I think there are 22 in a package). I probably wouldn't have bought yardage of these batiks as they are not exactly my choice of prints, but at the price I couldn't pass them up. They were $2.00 each and I bought about 7 or 8 of them. This would be perfect for using them. Thanks so much.

    I did one a couple years ago using all blue batiks and adding some red batik squares randomly. It breaks them up nicely.

    I to missed the original thread. What a great idea. I use the strip method for the back of my quilts, next time a nice contrast block will be added. Thanks for the idea.

    Wow, where did you find the strips for $2. Great for charity quilts.

    I really like this one with random solid black squares in the jellyroll quilt.

    Cool jelly roll ideas

    [Thanks so much for the links. ]

    I guess that I also missed this. Clever way to add some zip to the jelly roll. I also appreciated the link to the Lyn Brown site. More ideas --just not enough time.
