    I am looking for jelly roll size cuts (2 1/2 in x WOF) of certain fabrics so that I can make a pattern with only a few different colors.. not a huge variety which usually comes in a jelly roll. Do any of you know of a website where you can order the fabric this way or have any suggestions for me? I do such a terrible job cutting jelly rolls they are never straight and I end up frustrated. TIA!

    I have a shapemaker by June Taylor It is useful for cutting mutiple strips of the same yardage.

    You can build your own jelly rolls here: http://www.jellyrolls2go.com/buildaroll.html

    I haven't done so yet, but maybe someone else here can comment.

    Oh yes, most all quilt shops sell some of them. Even can get them on ebay, sometimes at great prices.

    I do have the GO but won't waste my money on the strip dies as this is just as fast. There are so many other dies I want!! :-D

    First, I have the Shape Cut ruler, and it's absolutely my favorite tool! I use it on every single quilt I make--well worth the price! I think they also make one with 1/4" cuts, too.

    That site where you can choose your own fabrics and make your own jelly roll is fabulous! I'll be ordering from there for sure! What a great idea!

    I learn something new everyday!!!! I bought the shape cutter a couple years ago when I made my first fringed fleece blankets. I made 2 blankets and never used it again. I will definitely be getting it out and using it now!!!

    I have this ruler and if you watch the other video for the fancy cut ruler, I have that one too. Thank you for the links to the videos, I thought I could only cut strips and didn't quite know how to use the other ruler. Thanks a bunch

    watch out for jelly rolls. at full price (i've seen shops charge $35) the per-yard cost is approximately $14 before shipping.

    charm packs are waaaaaay pricey, too. they don't all have as many as 40 squares per pack. at 40 squares, average price around $8 (have seen them for $10 or more) ... $15 or more per yard before shipping.

    if you can catch them on super-sale, though, they're a good way to see all the fabs in a line in person before you start investing in real yardage.

    i must adminth, though, that i've been buying charm packs for my Stickle quilt to achieve greater variety. i buy only what i can find on super-sale. i still cringe at the per-yard cost but 1/4-yard cuts of that many fabs would end up costing me tons more.

    I was just noticing this. The Jelly Roll to go website is cool but when I figured out for the build your own roll that you get just over 2.5yds and it is on sale for $28 that makes it over $10/yd! I can't afford that kind of cost. I guess this means I'll stick to cutting my own strips and really watch to see if I need a jelly roll before I invest that kind of money.

    Dakotamaid you don't know it, but are my new best friend. I purchased a June Taylor ruler almost a yr ago. It is has been gathering dust in the closet.

    I have been frustrated with irregular cuts. Thank you so much for posting that link.

    Although the cost of a jelly roll can be pricey, if you were to by a 1/4 or even 1/8 yard of 40 different fabrics, it may end up costing you more to get as much variety. Are there ever any swaps for strips? I haven't even looked, but it would be a good way to get a variety of prints.

    I've worn out one of these but mine is 18 inches wide. I'm now on my second one and use it for most all my cutting. I highly recommend this - worth the money, especially when using a coupon at Joanns.
