    I used a two jelly rolls from Walmart also. Each had 24 strips. I think that's the problem. Use no more than 40 or 42 and it runs sideways, otherwise the longer initial strip causes the strips to run up and down. I used mine just the way it worked best and added a couple of borders and some pinwheel blocks I had laying around and it looks fine. Just use it like it is. We won't tell the quilt police!

    NO NO NO, don't rip...even the sides, put a couple borders on it and it will be just fine. I've made several, even a small one for a baby, and they all look different...You can either do the piecing like you did, or you can angle the piecing, either way if fine. I like the different looks you get from different rolls..

    Having seen so many horizontal stripes I am pleased to see your vertical stripes. In one of Kaffe Fassett's book he has designed a vertical striped one.

    I made a jellyroll quilt like yours but I cut 18 inches off the first strip and as you join them all strip lengths are different, I then made my binding by sewing 4 inch strips together from the different color strips to make the binding and this really added appeal. I think your quilt looks great as is.

    Very pretty, I would just add borders if you want it bigger.

    It looks great, it's the beauty of the jelly roll, colors that match and we all know that horiztional stripes make you look thinner LOL

    Looks great. I just might pick up a couple of jellyrolls and make on to break up the various patterns I am using.

    I think I would add borders just to the sides not top and bottom

    I have made several of these and each time they come out different sizes. So I just add more material where needed. You do want it longer than wider so it will cover a person laying on a bed or snuggled up on a couch. I have made my own strips and when you get a pile sewn together about 2-3' high end to end (from the floor) you have enough for a large bed. I think we measured the last one at 80' before I started to fold and sew together.

    I actually like the vertical way you did it. I haven't made this one, as a friend had problems getting hers
    to come out looking good, but finally got it done and it is pretty. If you want it bigger, add borders and
    binding. This quilt would be a good practice machine quilting doing the stipple look. Keep up the good
    work!!

    Looks good to me. If not happy with size, use borders to get shape you want. Me, I would quilt it, bind it and call it DONE.

    I cut 3"( sorry not 4") rows across the ends of my very long quilt until I had enough to go around it for a piano key border. I put a narrow border on first to divide it. I do not have a picture because it w
    as a wedding gift but it changed the dimension back to a more square shape. I was very pleased with quilt and just did a meander all over.

    When I made mine during a jelly roll race at my LQS that's how they turned out. We then squared them up and added a 2 1/2" boarder and a 5" boarder. My Dd liked it so much she asked if she could have it. Of course I couldn't refuse her. Yours looks great. I didn't even know you could do them horizontally. All the directions I've seen would make them be vertical stripes like yours.
