Blog Hop Batiks

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways If you're just here for the chance for free stuff, here's the scoop:

I'm giving away 2 packets of 5" charm squares from my very cool stash of beautiful batiks to 2 lucky winners. Actual count TBA.
To play, leave a comment with a link of your favorite quilt pattern that uses 2.5" "jelly roll" strips. I'd love to see something that you made, but any link is OK.  To increase your odds of winning, spend some time looking over my blog and suggest something that you think that I would like.  Something that's "my" style.   One winner will be selected using a random number generator, and the other winner will be the suggestion that I like the best.

The give-away addicts may be excused now.

As for the the appliquers, quilters and piecers, here's the rest of the story.

Because I love to applique, I frequently have designs that need little bits of lots of beautiful fabrics.  Once upon a time, I used to buy 1/8 yard cuts for that reason.  Because I "collect" fabric while I'm traveling, I discovered that 1) many shops will not cut 1/8 yards and 2) those who do have differing opinions about what an 1/8 yard is.  Technically, it is 4.5".  When I returned from one cross country trip, I discovered pieces ranging from 4 to 6".

There were also times I wished that I could buy just at 5" charm square.  Just enough for a flower or a leaf.

Which triggered an new strategy.  I started to buy 1/3 yard cuts.  When I got home, I'd cut a 5" strip into charms, cut a 2.5" jelly roll strip, then save the remaining 1/8 yard for applique.

3 years later, I've amassed somewhere over 150 different batiks.

 And the only thing that I've really made from any of them was this jelly roll dress.

If you're still reading, then you get an extra clue....
I have mostly dark/bright fabrics, but about 20% are light.  I am not inclined to buy anything extra to use the batiks I have so the winning pattern will either be all strips, or strips with something made with 5" charms.

The only time I ever bought a charm pack was to make my first grandchild a quilt - not knowing if it was a boy or a girl.
http://truebluecanadian.blogspot.ca/2011/07/quilt-for-luc.html

I'd love to see you make something like the Civil War Bride quilt with batiks. Loads of applique.

Nancy said...

I like "Pandora's Box" from the book Jelly Roll Quilts.
I made one and there is a small picture here.
http://tatteredgarden.blogspot.com/2010/07/busy-week.html
Mostly I just come here to look at all your lovely applique

Janet said...

I've never sewn anything with a jelly roll. But I did participate in making this "round the world" quilt on Selvage Blog and I think it turned out beautiful. http://selvageblog.blogspot.ca/search/label/world%20quilt

My strips are the light pink, orange and green ones that start in the row under the row with the blue swans. Basically this is just like a jelly roll strip quilt except it is made with many different fabrics, not just the matchy ones from a jelly roll.

Gill said...

Although I have 2 jelly rolls I haven't used one yet! I was planning to make a granny squares quilt a le 'Blue Elephant Stitches' - they seem very popular at the moment!

Amy said...

To satisfy your stash minimizing efforts, the "jelly roll race" quilts from all over the blogosphere are easy, quick and fun. The batik one I made for my daughter isn't quilted yet, but it turned out great. She's in a piecing mood these days, and raided my stash for Halloween fabrics, and made a top using this pattern:
http://thelittlefabricshop.blogspot.com/2012/10/halloween-chevron-quilt-tutorial.html
It's adorable.

Shel @ Crafty But Not Creative said...

I recently made a Scrappy Trip Around the World quilt(http://quiltville.com/scrappytrips.shtml), which uses sets of 6-2.5"x16+" strips per block. I made mine with all scraps and probably 150 different fabrics, but it would be breathtaking with batiks. Batiks are my favorite fabrics, so thanks for the chance to win some!

pinsandneedles said...

The only quilt I've made using a jelly roll is Birdie Stitches from Little Miss Shabby BOM.
http://www.littlemissshabby.com/2011/01/birdie-stitches-block-1/
Thanks!

MooseStash Quilting said...

Beautiful fabrics. I have not made a jelly roll quilt, but I have scrappy string quilts. One was a reversable quilt...

thanks for the giveaway. here is a lovely idea to use a jelly roll

This is on my to-sew list. I have a jelly roll picked out just a-waiting:

Pat V. said...

Ah well, my style is probably not your style, as I have yet to try my hand at applique. But here is a postage stamp quilt made from TWO jelly roll, Hello Betty Retro and Bella Snow. (It was done as part of a Rachel Griffith QAL). http://www.flickr.com/photos/46475752@N05/5403956986/in/set-72157626955805040

Tanya said...

Thanks for chance to win. I love applique as well, and use a lot of scraps in process.

Julie Fukuda said...

I think jelly rolls are made for machine piecers but they can be cut into all kinds of pieces for applique or patterns using squares. I'll be willing to bet you have enough ideas in your head that you don't need any printed patterns to keep you occupied!

susanh4700 said...

Like another commenter, I also have two jelly rolls that I've never used. But I did cut up a bunch of my own fabric into 2 1/2" strips to make a center panel of a quilt for my grandson using this technique: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bEJLnaZQOU&list=PL01918A9F24203D87&index=4 The next time I do one like this, I would use straight seams to join the strips rather than bias. Your applique quilt is lovely.

Jeneta said...

Wow! Your jelly roll dress is amazing! Beautiful colours. I recently completed a 'jelly roll race' quilt (I know - they have been around for ages, but I have only just managed to get around to it!). Here it is: http://jeneta.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/what-im-working-on-mostly.html

I have made two king single sized applique quilts for two of my children. I love them!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Marjorie...I think the Giant Dahlia would look fantastic in Batiks

Mimi said...

I used the following pattern to make a lap quilt for my aunt's 80th birthday - it turned out beautifully too!

Fiesta said...

Thank you for the chance to win this lovely prize. I have only used a jelly roll once and I made a wedge topper

PippaP said...

Ive only made a jelly roll quilt once and I just sewed them all together at various points, I have got a book but never got round to buying or making another jelly roll lol

Joanie's Quilts said...

Lovely charm packet offer. I have never purchased a jelly roll until a couple of days ago for this blog hop. I did make a quilt from a jelly roll kit offered by the Charlotte Quilt Guild to make charity cuddle quilts.

Joanie's Quilts said...

I am a new follower! I really enjoy meeting new quilters and experiencing the quilting journey along with them. Your applique quilt is beautiful!

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

I use Jelly Rolls and 2.5" strips cut from yardage often, they're really handy. My favourite Jelly Roll Pattern at the moment is Simply Woven, you can find it at Moda Bake Shop.
On my blog you can see some quilts I made from Jelly Rolls: http://naehtante.blogspot.de
Thanks for the chance!

Kathleen C said...

I'm a hand appliquer too and I always bought only 1/8 yard pieces (mostly boring tonals)! I got weird looks in the stores, but I wanted the variety of fabrics. And now I also buy 1/3 yard pieces.
I've bought only one jelly roll-I cut the strips into 1" adn 1.5" , then used only half of the strips in the roll--strip pieced them, then cut squares onto which I stitched tonal triangles to make a larger square. The idea is from Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaking. I got two quilts from that one jelly roll!
I love to see your applique-thanks for sharing it with us.

patchouli moon studio said...

I have never bought a jelly roll or made a quilt using 2.5" strips. I do love batiks and applique is my favorite. I made a batik table runner using scraps of batiks in various widths. I even created a tutorial for it: http://patchouli-moon-studio.blogspot.com/2012/04/scrappy-quilt-as-you-go-table-runner.html

Siouxzq64@gmail.com said...

I have made this Jelly Roll Quilt several times. One I donated, and it turned out so cute that I made two more for my grand daughters but kind of just used 2 1/2 scraps in the colors they like. http://christaquilts.wordpress.com/2012/07/19/diy-quilts-1-the-jolly-jellyroll-quilt-supply-list/

Sallie said...

I would love to win because I'm gathering batiks to make the Northern Wilderness quilt pattern. My favorite jelly roll strip pattern is Brownies ala Mode in Kathy Brown's book, Strip-Smart Quilts. I haven't made it, but I found a picture of it at http://www.joscountryjunction.com/try-it-on-tuesday-giveaway/

SIMPLESEW said...

I opened 2 jelly roll this week, for a fast gift.. I just started buying some charm packs to start an art quilt, their mini's

Lourdes said...

I have two jelly rolls DD gave me ready to be put to use. I have never bought a charm pack...
Also, I'm a new follower

Beth said...

I think this could be adapted to your stash - I was considering it myself!

Connie said...

Here is a quilt I made using 2 1/2 inch strips.
http://www.conniekresin.com/2012/05/intertwined-by-river.html
Thanks for the great tip about buying 1/3 yard, I'm going to start doing that!

Alessandra Lace said...

I love this quilt at http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/10/braided-irish-chain-quilt_19.html

Thanks for the chance to win.

I think you'd like Brenda Henning's Strip Therapy books. She uses Bali pops. Thanks.

Madeleine said...

I've never made a jelly roll quilt but here are two that I liked.

Love the rainbow in this one:

Marla's Crafts said...

Thanks for having a give away.

bobbi said...

You know how amazing your work is Marjorie--and I´m just blown away with your quilted, beautiful version of Esther´s design!
The last quilt I made using jelly roll strips was just a simple, colorful quilt for a friend--and I appliqued hexagon flowers I´d made from bits off ends of strips and charms. The pattern has no rhyme, just reason--special to Julia. :o)
But you may like a look anyway, happy quilting always and hugs from Germany! Bobbi

gccmom said...

I am rather new to this. I have always sewn children's clothing. I haven't made a jelly roll quilt. I also can't figure out how to get a link into a pop-up comment box. I did make my daughter a rag quilt for Christmas.

Cowgirl in the City said...

I love making scrappy log cabin quilts with my jelly rolls. This is my favorite one I've made so far: http://www.thecowgirlinthecity.com/2010/11/all-i-seem-to-be-able-to-handle.html I long to be able to make wedding ring quilts or Irish chain quilts, but I haven't worked up the courage to do those yet.

quiltmom said...

I love batiks and went searching for a pattern to use to make a quilt for my brother that used a jelly roll. This is the pattern that a friend found for me- it turned out beautifully
Here is a link to the pattern:
http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/11/etchings-quilt.html
I expect that a log cabin variation would also be beautiful.
Thanks for participating in the hop.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna

hueisei said...

I have make Granny square quilt with 2.5" squares. My next goal is the 2.5" PSQ :D

Pauline G said...

I have fallen in love with jelly rolls recently - just done a Granny Square and also a pattern from Australian Patchwork & quilting using jelly rolls but also appliqué so I think you would like it
You can see them on my side bar on my blog

Second Chance Tan said...

hey check that dress out - everyone should have a jelly roll dress..... brilliant idea x I am in awe of your applique.... it's on my 'to get better at' list xxx

sherry said...

i like the charm pack size...as i do lots of applique it is the best size

Sandra said...

This is a great link to free patterns for jelly rolls; layer cakes or charms:

www.modabakeshop. com

I have made a lot of lap quilts using this link myself. I usually use jelly rolls since most of these patterns used a lot of 2 1/2" strips.
Thank you for the chance to win the 5" charms. These are pefect for any project that comes to mind.

I love the work of Edyta Sitar. She makes so many scrappy items. I make a lot of my scraps into HST and make projects from them.

Helen Percy Lystra said...

Love your give away but also impressed with your quilts and the skirt... nice work, good color choices.

Tammy said...

I have never bought a jelly roll or charm pack. I mostly buy fat quarters or yardage. I was a sewer of clothing first and am new to quilting. I revcently saw some very pretty appliqued quilt patterns over at Victoriana quilts by Benita Skinner. There is a gorgeous one of a crazy quilt santa clause. I'm sorry I do not have her link to post. But it shouldn't be that hard to find. THank you for the chance to enter your giveaway.

Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy said...

Hmm... my favorite jelly roll quilt pattern would have to be the "Jelly Roll Race Quilt":
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bEJLnaZQOU
I've always wanted to make one, and am trying to get up the gumshun to suggest it for a guild meeting. :)

Erin @ Sew at Home Mummy said...

As for something you'd maybe like, what about this pattern, done with batiks:
http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/other/eternity-knot-paper-pieced-quilt-block/9408
It's paper-pieced, and I haven't had a chance to finish one yet, but I think it would look awesome with your touch!

Richard Healey said...

FQS has some patterns at http://www.fatquartershop.com/Jelly-Roll-Patterns-Quilt-Pattern.asp I have not personaly ever made a Jelly roll quilt though I have one that I need to make and have yet to decide what I want to use. I have added your blog to reader to get to know you better.

Lyn said...

I haven't had any jelly rolls. I have just started to collect batiks. Thanks for the giveaway.

Jeanne Gwin said...

I like using jelly rolls and having them on hand. Always seem o find something that coordinates when needed. Thanks

Irina said...

Oh! I'm finishing a quilt with a jelly roll, so I don't have the link yet, but I'll blog about it soon, here's my blog so you can track it down http://www.elpetittaller.wordpress.com. Thanks for the chance!

Besides winning, I love shopping for my own fabrics - that's part of the creative fun! Thanks sew much for this chance to win your generous giveaway :-D

Lyn said...

Instead of a project, my suggestion is something to use in projects... I'm a huge fan of Cherrywood Fabrics Grab Bags for Crazies. not sure if this link will come through but if it doesn't, just google it: http://www.cherrywoodfabrics.com/grabbag.asp

I'm currently doing Lori Smith's Fit to Frame #6 in all Cherrywood solids from grab bags with one charm pack of prints added into the mix just for fun.

Karrie S said...

I love your applique! This is my first time to your blog. It's so beautiful!

I found some cute placemats, but all my patterns are in books. Thanks for the chance to win.

Beth Strand said...

The first thought that came to mind was the scrappy trip around the world (http://quiltville.com/scrappytrips.shtml) I see it's already been suggested but it is a favorite of mine at the moment and on my "gonna do" list. As soon as I finish a couple of UFO's! Thanks for hosting! pbstrand@msn.com

JanesQuilting said...

The only time I bought a Charm Pack was a month ago when I signed up for the Nancy Drew Blog hop. (Which is going on now) I didn't know too much about her so didn't want a lot of fabric left over. But I found out that they are a lot of fun to use.

Nanbon44 said...

I have never made anything with a jelly roll.. but I will as I was given one by a lady in my charity group

Nita said...

A woman after my own heart! Here is a link to a quilt I made using precut strips. I think it was a bali pop.
http://www.nitadances.com/index.php/2012/03/15/an-island-chain-for-amber/

Nita said...

And here is something I think you will like...hand appliqued using small scraps. I am nowhere as good at it as you are, though.

Here's one of the nicest quilts that I have made using a jelly roll:

Kathy S. said...

I think you should take a certain time (say Saturday morning at 9am while you are sipping coffee) and search for applique quilts on Pinterest. I bet you won't be able to stop.

StarofMoonDancer said...

Jelly Roll Quilts...Love doing the jelly roll race quilts....
Thanks for the chance...

Lindy's Threads said...

HI I designed a quilt with a jelly roll but it wouldent realy be the pattern your looking for since it uses back ground fabric as well as strips but if you doubled the pattern and made a bigger strip border it would put a serious dent in your stash of strips. you can see my quilt on my blog
Lindy's Threads. let me know if you whant the pattern. and thanks for the chance to win i love the look of applique but rarly ever do any off it.

Lori said...

I love batiks but dont have any at this point. I have never bought a jelly roll or charm pack, I am so new to this Im not sure what Im doing yet. Thanks for a chance to win.

Terrie said...

Hi! Thanks for the chance to win. I absolutely love your idea (is it yours?) of the jelly roll dress/skirt. I think it would be a blast to have one. (I'll make it first). Seems like you've come a long way and I'm sorry I do not have a suggestion, but I'm new to this. Good luck with the blog. I love applique too.

Ariane said...

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! I made a tutorial last year using 2.5 inch strips. Here is the link: http://www.arianequilts.com/2012/04/my-block-tutorial.html
It's a very simple pattern, and can be made up quickly. I hope you like it.

Nancy-Rose said...

Recently saw this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=L5Ixvjje310
and would like to whip a quilt like this together......

Purl Buttons said...

I like Brownies also: http://www.joscountryjunction.com/try-it-on-tuesday-giveaway/

My favorite is one I am designing myself but is not published yet so there is no link.

Bonnie58 said...

Thanks for sharing and for the opportunity on the draw. I have never used a charm pack, but did follow Bonnie Hunter's easy Street Mystery quilt at Christmas. it was all from 2.5" strips. Check it out at quiltville.com. bonnielarson58@gmail.com

Just Quilt It said...

I've never made anything with a jelly roll. I did make a pattern in the latest Fons and Porter magazine that suggested using charms and jelly roll pieces. It was a really cute table runner--strips in the center in rainbow fabrics--and charms for the borders with applique leaves in the border. You would have loved it. You would enjoy the quilt store we stopped at in Skagway, Alaska. They sold their scraps in little rolls, and you paid by the inch.

Lisa Cox said...

I'm a newbie when it comes to quilting so I haven't made a jelly roll quilt yet.
But I did find the Daisy Chain pattern today, and I think it would look AWESOME in batiks.

Norma said...

The only small scrap fabric I have ever bought are fat quarters, so I have no suggestions. My 86 year old mother use to send to fabric warehouses for a box of their scraps. I still have oodles of 50's 60's and 70's fabric scraps!

You could make a Bargello with jelly roll strips. It would be custom due to your colour choices.

Barb and Sharon said...

I have included a link to my finished quilts. Look for the Broken Bargello I think it might be something you could use your leftovers to complete.

Debbie said...

I rarely use jelly rolls, but am almost through with a scrappy trip around the world that uses 2 1/2" strips.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I've never used a jelly roll, but I believe this Scrappy Trip uses the 2.5" strips.

http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/scrappy-trips-around-world.html

Dee said...

Love your applique - I do love charms also - so fun.

Debby said...

I have made 3 race car quilts from strips and live how they turn out. Am currently working on a throw using "warm" batiks. Love the look of batiks. Am a novice to appliqué having only done a couple of squares going into samplers.

Helle Thode said...

wow :-) Would love to win a charm pack - loves bali and you can se my bali pop project . a quilt for my mom - on my blog: http://patchworkstuen.wordpress.com/2012/06/02/slumretaeppe-i-pastel-balipops-er-faerdigt/ - sorry the blog is on my language, danish...perhaps you kan use the google translator :-) Hugs, Helle

JLVerde said...

I've never used a jelly roll for a project. The closest I've come is using 2.5 inch squares for my postage stamp quilt.

This Dog's Mom said...

I don't have a pattern link, but i do have a suggestion I made a watercolor log cabin with batik strips once. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of it before I gave it to a charity auction. I started with lights in the middle and used progressively darker strips with each new strip that got added. Each square was about 10 inches square. So I had a quilt full of glowing windows. I empathize with your desire to buy just a small square of Batik. If your travels ever take you to Hot Springs, AR, there is a quilt shop called Kathy's Quiltin Square that sells scraps by the pound and you get to pick your own! Lots of batiks. I spent some wonderful afternoons going through the scrap totes! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. Your applique work is stunning!

nerospost said...

Hi! I love your applique works and the dress is amazing! That's the kind of dress I would really want!
I haven't used any jelly rolls and even patterns. I have made all my quilts from 'my own mind'.

annmarie said...

I've made several jelly roll quilts but they require yardage besides the JR. This link is to the instructions for a mystery JR quilt. Mine is on this page of comments (page 7, I'm Annmarie). and if you scroll thru the other pages of comments you'll see some beautiful finished mysteries.

liniecat said...

Thats such a clever idea to bring home fabrics and cut it into a strip and pieces that way!
I often find a half metre or large piece of fabric intimidating as it is.......and your so right, if you only want a leaf or two.....buying larger amounts isnt ecconomical!
Love your sense of humour too!!

liniecat said...

Blowed if I can think of a pattern link but have browsed thru some of your posts......and am now following alonga lol

Tamie said...

I have a jelly roll but haven't made something yet. This is where I'm headed when I get ready to start. I'm sure there is something there you would like. Thanks for participating in the Blog Hop. http://www.modabakeshop.com/search/label/Jelly%20Roll

The Orphan Quilter said...

You should check out my quilt design in Fons and Porter Easy Quilts April 2013 issue. It's called Strips and Squares and uses one Jelly Roll and one Charm Square pack.

Stephanie said...

I have just signed up for a class to make this one, Braids on Parade. http://thumbsupstuff.com/listings/moreinfo.cfm?bid=107&lid=311#.UT5qHhxZFjY

Stephanie said...

I hsve been looking around, and you have such a variety of styles. I love the monet panels, and the cat. Both lovely, and so different.

I have just found this quilt recently, and have to share it.

http://reginabdunn.com/home.html

I think I am going to work my way up to it, perhaps starting with something like this:

I just finished my first item from a jelly roll pattern! You can see my item here: http://fabricengineer.blogspot.com/2013/03/duvet-finished.html

I think you should make this using all batiks! http://kscottonwoodquilts.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Spring-Bouquet-Rainbow-Quilt-Web.jpg

Jodi said...

This is my favourite Jelly Roll Pattern.

http://www.etsy.com/listing/91280188/drawstring-quilt-pdf-pattern-by-tickle?

It is designed by a friend of mine Jodi (yes we have the same name) and I think it would be just beautiful done as a Batik Rainbow design. If you check out Jodi's blog she has done a few in Rainbow segments and they look stunning (batiks would be devine).
Thanks for sharing

I'm a newer quilter... so I don't have a jelly roll pattern... BUT I do own a jelly roll. It's waiting for me to find something fun to do with it! Your blog may give me some ideas...Thanks for the chance to win

You should look at a pattern called cletic twist. I think you would like it. Then add some flowers in applique to it to make it like a floral vine. olney.gail@gmail.com

What a nice giveaway. Thanks for being part of this fun blog hop. I've enjoyed your blog.The quilt I'm working on now I got from Missiour Star Quilt company youtube video. Not for sure but I think the name of the quilt is Phoebe (something)

Gayle said...

I've been collecting batiks lately - love the way Edyta Sitar uses them in her designs!

Diane Swett said...

I love your appliqued quilt and the idea to buy 1/3 yds and split it up. I usually buy 1/2 yards but I think I'll be doing the 1/3 yrds now... my 1st jelly roll quilt is one I am doing as a quilt along @ www.Christa Quilts. com some of my stuff I've been working on you can see on my blog http:quiltingandsewingartsstudio.blobspot.com my email is dianeswett7441@msn.com.

I have never had a jelly roll, but wanted to participate in a quilt along, so cut my own lavenders and pinks for the Hugs and Kisses Quilt at http://christaquiltsblog.com/2013/03/13/christas-quilt-along-5-3-hugs-and-kisses-bow-tie-blocks-giveaway/
It's too cute and I think it would look great with your batiks.
Your dress is one of the only wearables I LOVE!

I love that batik dress. It's awesome! I collect batiks as well and hand dye my own fabrics, but I rarely ever use a pattern. So what I would suggest is sewing the 2 1/2 inch strips together then cutting those into 2 1/2" pieced strips and creating a gorgeous background of hundreds of 2" batik squares. You can create a colour flow from light to dark with offset seams for a funky twist, or whatever arrangement pleases you. Then appliqué a gigantic flower on top to create a beautiful wall hanging. I thin that would be gorgeous and right up your alley, but a bit outside the box. I'll send you a photo on Friday of a piece that i'm just finishing up for photos if you send me an email.

VERY FUN AND INTERACTIVE GIVEAWAY!

Hello. This is my first time visiting your blog. I really like your work, but I lean a little more toward modern. I'm not sure if this is your style, but I would love to try the scrappy swoon http://hopefulhomemaker.com/wp/scrappy-swoon-quilt-along/
I'm thinking either aqua and yellow or purple and green (love that combo). Plus it's all scraps!

Sharon said...

Good very early morning! I am a new follower from the party but I am so glad to have met you and your blog. I know if I need something quick I always go to the jelly roll race and if you just Google it you will get the video. As for your blog it looks great the way it is.

Mara said...

I am doing this right now
http://christaquiltsblog.com/2013/03/13/christas-quilt-along-5-3-hugs-and-kisses-bow-tie-blocks-giveaway/
with 5 different batiks and some white fabric, I saw from your past projects you use white and black so you might have some of that in your stash too.

Thanks for the opportunity to win your great giveaway. I have only used a jelly roll once and it was about two years ago. I did a jelly roll workshop at my local quilt store and I chose the instructor!s Roman Stripes pattern. It was fairly east to do ..3 strips were sewn together and then sewn to a 6 1/2" strip of main fabric....I used a strip tube ruler to cut the blocks and then joined them all together to make a lap size quilt. It turned out pretty good if I do say so myself and I donated last year to a fundraiser for a child who has autism.

Martha said...

I have several jelly rolls and I can't bear to use them...they are so beautiful. I have made a 1600 quilt but we cut our strips from yards of fabric. I really enjoyed it. I am lost on what to suggest to you...your work is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for the great give-a-way.
