    I saw this on my LSQ's facebook page. I only used a jelly roll that had 24 pieces - wanted to see how well it worked first.

    Of course I missed the step that said to miter the ends and I sewed them straight and I didn't mix up my pieces well enough so some of them are right next to each other....

    The length is perfect the width is too small using only 24 pieces but I can add a border and make it wider. Had fun doing it and it only took 40 minutes....

    Thanks - this was a small jelly roll I picked up at wal-mart - called Slices by fabric editions. I loved it and it was inexpensive $8.00

    It was fun to make and time to see how long it took!!

    I just copied the directions. I want to do that one one of these days. I love the mitering idea. Would have never thought of doing it that way; sewing one continuous strip and then sewing the ends together, etc. Who thinks of these things?!?!?!?

    The one thing I learned is when you are folding it up and sewing it - switch sides - that is how to keep the same pattern from blocking up against each other....when you sew down on the right side - after you cut it to open - flip it over so your sewing down what was the left side....I want to go buy another jelly roll now so I can try again....

    I did a jelly roll before Christmas. I want to put a board on but can't figure out a fabric to use and need to pick out backing also. I think my jelly roll is my favorite.

    I love your fabric!!


    I made one of these last month and I think it doesn't matter how much you mix it up you always end up with some fabrics next to each other.

    I did one using purple batiks. I will post pics sometime or other. I found the first row the hardest, ending up with a couple twists which made it hard to cut evenly. I am saving mine to quilt when my new to me long arm quilting machine comes so I have something to practice free motion on. They sure are fun and plan to make more.

    I just went out and bought 10 yds of burgundy prints (14 prints) to make a king size quilt for a client (I haven't even delivered the first one to her and she's ordered a second after seeing a picture of the first).

    I think I am going to use this method. Although haven't decided if I am going to do width of fabric or if I'm going to cut them smaller, maybe 11 inches, for more variety in the overall appearance.

    Should be fun!

    Ok I watched the video and it goes too fast, so let me ask this - not to appear too stupid!

    You sew all 40 of your Jelly Rolls strip together, fold it in half and sew down the edge, then you cut it in half? Then fold again, cut, fold, etc until it is completely finished?

    Thanks for your input!

    I've got some Christmas 2 1/2 strips from a swap at my guild and I've been thinking of using them on this. Hey maybe we need to do a sway with 2 1/2 strips on the board so we can all do this.
