    I have a lot of 2 inch strips of random lengths. I think I could use the same technique and just modify the size with borders. Do you think that will work?

    Yes. Just measure the strips lengthwise as you go and have them add up to 1600 inches. With 2inch strips, it will end up approx. 48 X 50. Good size for a baby quilt.
    I've made several of these scrap quilts and called them my "trip down memory lane" quilts since I'm used fabrics from so many past quilting projects.
    Good luck!

    Yes, I done one with 1 1/2 " strips of various lengths.
    When I got tired of sewing the strips end-to-end, I started sewing it into rows, then just put a border to get my desired size.

    I love it. I've been wishing for something fast for a charity quilt. Great idea. Found this site this morning and am glad I did! I'll be back.

    WOW! I have a bag full of 1 to 1and1/8 inch strips that I have cut from ends of pieces, that I was saving to crochet in to another rug. However, I am now thinking of trying your technique to use them up... You all give me so many cool ideas, I wish you could also give me more time to try them!!! (Summer is almost over, back to teaching job soon...) :)

    I just adore Moda Jelly Rolls -- can't get enough of them and now I finally know what to do with them. I decided Tweet Tweet was the perfect line for my best friend's daughter's second birthday quilt!

    I believe jelly rolls have 40 strips. Some might have a few less but, on average, 40.

    The length of all strips must total 1600". Usually a jelly roll has 40 strips. The most common width of the jelly roll is 2.5"...
    The size of your finished quilt will vary depending on the width and length and number of strips.
    You can make your own jelly roll.
