Jelly Roll precuts
Jelly rolls created this!
Jelly rolls were the original pre-cut hit from Moda.
Now also available from may others
including luscious Hoffman batik Bali pops
Jelly rolls are full width strips precisely cut at 2 1/2″.
Most commonly there are are 40 , or 2 3/4 yards of precut fabric .
No effort , no worries with accurate measuring and cutting.
You can begin stitching almost immediately.
Some people chose to wash them carefully
But you can just sew them together( reversing direction with each strip.)
Or you can start sub cutting and creating a variety of simple blocks
including :quilt-as-you-go strip , log cabin , braids , rail fence..!
There are a multitude
of great ideas
Then again you can make your own strips
I’ll find out more to share this weekend.
When I go to the Sunshine Coast Quilters Guild
where I will bring back photo examples of their Jelly Roll Quilt Class!
