    I made this jelly roll top following fromthenestdesigns tutorial. It took me about 4 hours to make it. Ofcourse having a little one means having to stop and go constantly. I think I am in love with jelly rolls now. I have one more and I can't wait to make it. Thanks for looking.

    Great quilt, isn't that jelly roll method fun, although I did keep rolling my chair over my fabric while I was sewing when I did it. I had to remind myself to "SIT STILL" while I was sewing (lol).

    I had the same problem. If the chair wasn't sitting on it then my foot was on it. But it was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again.

    Next time try putting your long strip of strips into a paper bag while you are sewing. It helps.

    Brilliant Idea, that's why I love this board, someone is always able to come up with a solution for every problem.

    Yeah, those first couple of seams are killers. I had that strip all over the floor. Then it finally comes together and towards the end it's so fast.

    I made a quilt today using this jelly roll method. Wish I would have read the board and known about putting your strip in a brown paper bag! :-)
