I am working on a "Keyhole" jelly roll quilt, it is fast and easy, I find most of these quilts mindless, which is good. Most of my day is spent in  front of a computer, when I get home I want to look…Continue

Other than Log cabin are there other ideas for combining jelly rolls with charm packs?

Hi Donna, thanks for the answer, but where would I find a pattern for a  Jelly Roll Race Quilt?

It sounds interesting and its for me if its fast and easy.

Hi Alexe,  You should try a Jelly Roll Race Quilt.  They are fun and fast.  They measure about 54 x 60 and can be larger if you add borders.  I usually add a 3" border and that brings it to a nice sized quilt when finished.  I make them for cancer patients and they make a nice size lap quilt.

Hi, I am a newbie in the group and I discovered jelly rolls by accident, but found how out how neat they are.

I've done a coupe of little things with them but nothing special

I am thinking ahead and would love to make a lap quilt for my son girlfriend for Christmas.  I found this very nice jelly roll at Joanns for 12.97 and  and I can get fabric to match by the yard if I want to.  My question is, how big is a lap quilt and would I sew the strips of the jelly roll as they are or could I cut them in half?  Any help is greatly appreciated

Hello, my name is Erin. I'm a new quilter and looking for easy quilts to practice on. I found out about jelly rolls yesterday and have decided my next one will be a jelly roll quilt!

I'm so happy to see this group. I made a jelly roll race top yesterday and it was a blast and very fast. I think I love jelly rolls but they are a bit pricey. I will have to pace myself.

I am a new member to this group and was pleased to see there is now a Jelly Roll group.  I purchased two great books that use jelly rolls last year and am now in the process of making my "first" jelly roll quilt.  Hope to get a lot of inspiration from fellow members.

Hi all, I'm Cindy. I've made a braided quilt. It was so much easier using jelly rolls.

Hi Everyone,  My name is Donna and i just joined Jelly Rolls.  I have done one quilt with jelly rolls and loved it.  Am going to do another one next month with my guild.  I love them because they are color coordinated and ready to go.  Nice meeting this group.
