Jelly rolls

I can certainly see why jelly rolls are so popular. I am having a good time with my bowl full of sunshine, er, Sunkissed. (Please forgive the poor quality photos today, I think I hit the wrong setting on my camera.)


Making 4-patches are sooo easy!

Just sew two strips right sides together...


Cut apart every 2.5"...



Turn one, and sew two together...


You can also make an very easy 9-patch.

Sew three strips together....


Cut apart every 2.5"....


Make two different strip sets, and sew together...


Of course, square patches aren't ALL you can make with jelly rolls. There's strips, like for this new bag I'm making (although I did not use a jelly roll for this).



And there's diamonds and triangles and a variety of other things....which I'm sure you all know about ;) But they are for another post.

Hope you're having a good sewing day.


Thanks for stopping by, Dorian
