    Yes, this is in essence the "lasagna quilt". I never made one, but my friend did and she said it was so tedious....sewing a row, cutting it off, sewing another roll.....this technique does away with all of that.....I saw it here, and my quilting ministry group did it at our annual quilt away weekend. There was some initial whining because sewing the long strips is tedious, but it gets shorter as you go along and suddenly you have a quilt top. We had 4 of us who made a second quilt top. The second time, I didn't use a jelly roll, but pulled the same amount of strips out of my leftover binding bins and put them together....it looked great! I have a 3rd and 4th quilt in me....until the binding is gone!

    I live in Canada - don't think we have jelly roll producers here - mailing costs double the prices of everything!
    There are lots of quilt stores who carry jelly rolls. Check locally. I can even get them here in small town Alberta! (Canada)

    I just made this quilt, but my center is much bigger than the example given here. It's 72" x 64", but it is 32 strips wide??? I was hoping it would be a bit more rectangle...what would you do to it?

    Thanks for the specifics. I've seen this, but didn't quite know how to do it.

    That is really pretty and is more of the size that I would want to make. How many strips did you start with? The other thing I notice is that some of the strips seem to be as long as the width (as its hanging) of the top. What length were each of the strips?

    The only way to make it more of a rectangle would be to (a) add more strips to get the size you want and/or (b) add borders.

    Hi Jinnie, After reading your post I had to write to say that two years ago I had surgery on my right shoulder. A completely torn rotator cuff, torn bicep, bone spur and arthritis. It was a lot of therapy afterwards, but I did exactly what the doctor told me to do. And now I'm happy to say my shoulder is like brand new. So don't skip any part of the therapy and I'm sure you will be happy with the results. I'm 76 and feel proud that I did it.

    I really like this idea and will need to purchase my first jellyroll. I am thinking of cutting the jellyroll in half to make it even more blending and colorful than the longer strips do. The directions and pics are extremely helpful. This will be my next quilt. Wish I had this at my Retreat last week altho I kept plenty busy. I may buy 2 jellyrolls and save one for my Retreat next March. Thanks ever so much.

    If you have 25 strips of 40" long you have
    1000 " by 2" (I count the finished size because it's easier)
    fold once: 500" by 4"
    fold again: 250" by 8"
    fold again: 125" by 16"
    fold again: 62.5" by 32"
    Add borders you want and you have a quilt.
    Or:
    20 strips of 40" gives you 800" (or scraps totallying 800")
    fold once: 400" by 4"
    fold again: 200" by 8"
    fold again: 100" by 16"
    fold again: 50" by 32"
    Add borders to make a nice throw or baby quilt.
    You get the picture.
    Good luck!

    Hi Robin
    Thanks for the pattern. I've been looking at my Jelly Roll with matching Layer Cake, trying to decide what to do. Have you tried to angle the joining of the strips? Not sure if I'm making sense. LOL.

    I have made them with straight seams and with angled seams like joining binding and borders. Both ways work well. If you do a search for photos you will find examples of both.

    Thank you, I am new to quilting and have a jelly roll in infant boy patterns for my new grandson expected beginning of February. I did not know where to get started. Now I do.
