I'm rolling along with the jelly roll quilt
while the world outside is stormy.
So I decided to buy the brightest jelly roll pack of batiks that I could find and make a Jelly Roll 1600 quilt. First you sew all 40 strips together, end to end. (I jazzed mine up by inserting smaller lengths of a bright yellow in about eight spots.) Then you cut 18 inches off of one end.
Now you have a 1600-inch (less the 18 inches) strip. You cut that in half and sew the two lengths together, then cut that in half and sew those two together like I'm doing above.
Still stormy outside, but now the quilt is taking shape.
When you get to this point (below), with 16 strips sewn together, you only have to cut it one more time.
I'm saving the final seam for tomorrow, just so I have something to look forward to. And it's supposed to be SUNNY!
Have a colorful day
