    New take on the jelly roll quilts.

    This is a 40" x 60" quiltm top for the charity I sew for: AZblankets4kids.

    I've done four of Loving Izabella's Boomerangs (you send out fat eights to those in your group, they send you a fat eighth. You make them a block using their F8 and your stash, they do the same for you) -- that was about 120 blocks I made for others, and had all sorts of little leftovers from those F8s, not enough to really do anything with. But I remember watching the jelly roll race on Youtube and dragged out the bag of scraps, cut anything that was 2-1/2" wide into a strip, pieced them into 42" wide strips and sewed them together then trimmed to 40 inches wide. I didn't do it like the jelly roll race showed -- they pieced 40 WOF strips into a 1,800" piece. Go watch the video, it's a hoot.

    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    Turned out very pretty. I am in the process of using up the scraps my previous quilts have created.

    As my supply of strips seems to grow like topsy, I've been thinking this would be a good way to use up some of them.
    Thanks for sharing. Yours is really pretty.
    God Bless,

    What a clever idea!!! I really like this look compared to the straight edge seams you see so often.

    I like your version, it has more variety and sounds easier to do than handing that realllllly long strip.

    I like the change you made to the diagnal seam. Your quilt has a lot of movement. I've seen that clip on tv. It is a Hoot.

    I like your version. I have done lots of these too. I don't always take the time to do the 45 degree angle, but they go so fast, are great for charity quilts. The last one I did with a jelly roll, I cut 2 1/2" strips off each side and used them in the backing to add interest.

    I love doing things like that. Uses up loads and loads of scraps - and you can do it with any width strip - which uses up even more scraps. WTG love it.

    I really like the combination of lights and darks in your quilt. And that video is pretty darn fun!
