    I went to JoAnns after someone posted they got their fat quarters for 3.50. However, I did not get the fat quarters but did get a pretty Jelly Roll for 9.99. I do not even know if this is a good deal or not, but did notice they are 19.99 at Walmart, so I got it. Do not know what I am going to do with it yet.

    Wow. I have never purchased a jelly roll, but I REALLY like the colors. I might have to go back to JoAnns again! (I am planning on making a trip there tomorrow... he he!)

    Were all jelly rolls for that price? How many strips? that sounds like an awesome deal... I want one like that for a baby quilt.

    I love the pinks & browns together. They make a very pretty quilt. Sounds like the price was good too.

    I bought some with 40 strips for 9.00, picked up four. One is called You Bug Me, thought I would use that for our little GGD.

    Love the colors. I have made my newest grandaughter about 6 baby size quilts in pink and brown.

    Wow, you got a good deal. I love jelly rolls but our WM does not carry them anymore.

    I made my daughter a strip diaper bag out of this & it turned out really cute. Plus I bought the charm pack in the same design and make a baby quilt.

    I came across a pattern recently that uses jelly rolls very quickly. (I just hope it wasn't here that I discovered it and am passing on old news!?) In any case all that you do is sew one strip to another different strip end to end, add a third different strip to the second strip at the end until you have one very long strip of all the jelly roll pieces stitched end to end. You're first strip of the long piece you now cut off 20" and add it to your stash. Then you fold the long strip in half lengthwise and sew up the long seam and at your foldover end you snip it through. Then you fold your halflength long strip in half and sew another side and snip the end (your original long strip is now a quarter of what it was originally). You continue doing this until you have a nice sized rectangle (size depends on the number of strips you have in the first place). A simple striped quilt that went together in nothing flat! I thought this was a really clever idea when I read it! Good luck!

    Never bought a jelly roll. I am always afraid of the quality of the cut, and that if I need more will I be able to get them.

    That's going to be a pretty quilt when it is done. I love how they are pairing black with all colors now.

    How many yards are in JoAnn's jelly rolls? Walmart has 5 or more yards although not much choice in fabric design or colors.
