I have had a bin of jelly roll strips from Connecting Threads for ages. I finally decided to do something with them. I like the concept of jelly roll race quilts, but I’m not always thrilled with the results.
I saw a tip on Pinterest to cut your strips into halves and thirds to make your jelly roll race quilt look more scrappy. I decided to try it. I think I started with over 50 strips. If you don’t know what a jelly roll race quilt is, give it a Google. It’s a pretty neat idea.
I set up at the kitchen counter to sew the ends of my strips together because I was waiting for a package that I had to sign for.
i did go back to my Juki for sewing the long strips together because that machine just flies! I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I think it ended up being about 64 by 72 inches.
I think it will be a fun top to quilt.
Have a great day!
