    I have a batik roll (3.5 yds) of 2 1/2" strips. Any ideas what pattern I should use to make a quilt?

    I have almost the exact same roll! I was planning on doing the super fast jelly roll quilt I found in the tutorial section, but I'm sure others will have more interesting ideas, lol!

    I just bought the Jelly Roll Quilts book. Haven't picked my pattern yet. Have a batik jelly roll waiting for me to pick.

    On the Missouri Quilt Company site under tutorials, look for Summer in the Park. I just made it with strips and I love how it turned out. www.missouriquiltco.com

    The super fast jelly roll is what I was thinking. I have made 2 of them and I love how they come out. 1 of mine is in batik's that I am turning into a king size quilt for my queen size bed.
    BTW I love the jelly roll you have those are some nice colors.
    There have been some that have made bargello's using the jelly roll.
    What ever you decide I hope it is fun to do.

    It won't matter. Whatever pattern you use will be wonderful with those fabrics. They're great!

    I saw someone on the board who did the jellyroll quilt but then cut them into blocks of say 5 strips. She then sashed the whole thing. It was so pretty. Wish I could remember it :(
    But the jellyroll quilt is always a winner!!!!!!!!!! :D

    I was given a Jelly Monster rule for my birthday, so I plan to use it and fast assembling techniques to make all of the shapes one can cut from the jelly rolls using this device, and then randomly assemble the lot. Should be fun!

    How about Garden Trellis? You make tubes and cut into triangles. Open them up and wala, you have a square. This is one of my favorite patterns. It is in the book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam & Nicky Lintott.

    That is a really pretty quilt. Did you sew the strips together cut out squares, then cut in half diagonally twice and resew back together, or was there an easier way to do this?

    I just finished a quilt top made from a suggestion on this site. Sew the strips together, end to end, then fold the long piece that results in half and stitch together. Fold it in half again and again until you have a top of 64 strips. The colours are entirely random and it looks fantastic. I've taken it to a LQ and can't wait to get it back. The top was done in 2 afternoons! I'm sorry I can't remember who posted the directions - it wasn't done as a tute.
