    My first Jelly Roll type scrappy quilt top

    I really enjoyed making this quilt. I'm a relatively new quilter and this is only my second quilt but there is no doubt I'll be making this fun quilt again....so fast and so much fun. I didn't have a Jelly Roll so I just cut from scraps that I had. I will buy fabric and cut my own strips again....it didn't take long at all to cut them and costs so much less. I joined my strips with a diagonal seam...which I like but think I may do a straight seam on the next one.....after I figured out that with every 2.5 strip you join on the diagonal you loose 1 3/4 inch of of the strip....that certainly adds up when you are joining 40 strips.

    I'm looking for a pattern for a throw pillow that is made from strips I thought it was posted on quilting board. I copied it but now can't find it ( after spending about 3 days looking). Can any one help me? Karissa

    I found a tutorial on you tube. Put in 10 minute block in the search line. About 8 or more come up. The one I like is made with 5 squares of fabric sewn together, per the instructions, and you get a block that looks like it has a set in square. Very quick. Did a wall hanging in batik, turned out so pretty.
    Someday when I figure out my camera and how to post pictures, I will share.

    In our country these kind of quilts called "lasagna" (like the italian pasta).

    This is my version, with two "rollimopsi" (a jelly-roll with only 21 stripes (7 fabrics) ), one in yellows, one in oranges. The green fabric was an old tablerunner (printed cotton).

    What would happen if the first piece cut off was added elsewhere?

    I was told to stitch the strips together on the diagonal - your instructions say straight across.

    Confused ... that's me.

    OH, I see the person over my post did it diagonally!

    What a great idea!

    My Mom passed away in November of last year and I got some of her clothes and I wanted to make quilts for my grandchildren. I can do this with the skirts and dresses and it would be really be easy to cut those in the same size. It would also enable me to do a lot in the future also.
    thanks for the idea.

    Wow what a fun idea, I am going to have to try to make one too!

    @Kaysue4, I think you are on to something there, what a great way to remember your mom. A quilt is something that your grandchildren will cherish forever!

    Thanks for the ideas. I didn't have strips but I did have scads of large rectangles obtained at a yard sale. All different lengths but about the same widths. I just layer a bunch in several stacks then pared them to the same width. Sewed them end to end & used your method after that. Had a lap quilt top finished even with 3 young grandsons running around & outing to beach, park, etc.
    Great method

    Can't believe how easy this is...thanks so much for sharing this! I've had a jelly-roll sitting around for over a year and have been waiting to figure out what to do with it...now I know!

    I really like the idea of sewing the strips at an angle. Thank you for posting your picture.

    I'm glad I kept this update to view at this much later time! I have a couple of odd-size jelly rolls - one with 35 strips and the other with 26. Both width are 2 1/2 inches, but I'm going to have fun!

    Thank you, ladies!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    Is this the jelly roll race, just not mitered strips? Looks fast and easy. Thanks
    Just passing through!

    Thank you for posting this. I have never quilted before but have viewed some YouTube videos on making these quilts. I needed written directions and now I have them. I can't wait to try making one of these beautiful quilts.

    Do you know what size quilt you would get if you used this method but used 60 strips or 80 strips? I made a lap size quilt using this technique and 40 strips, but would like to make a full size. Thanks! Pam
