Cute idea to use up jelly roll scraps   General Discussion

Started Jun-4 by JulietDeltaOscar (fixin2quilt); 193 views.

This site has a free pattern called "Nines in the Middle Jelly Roll Quilt."  There are very detailed instructions for cutting each strip to size, but I don't think all that measuring is really necessary.  This is simple enough to do freestyle.  It would be a good pattern to use up a lot of 2.5 inch strips and not have to purchase a new jelly roll - unless you just want to.  (But if you're like me, you have a few unopened ones in your stash.  haha)  I *would* make all the little 9-patches the same, so they would tie it all together.  And also stick with a solid background, whether muslin, black, white, gray, etc.  I would have fun making it scrappy, just pulling out a bunch of my 2.5 inch strips, chopping them up into various lengths, and sewing them back together end-to-end.  There's no right or wrong way to arrange the strips, as long as they are kinda staggered like in the photo, with the 9-patches inserted randomly.  It looks like it would be fun to make.   JMO.

That *is* easy enough to do without a formal pattern and cute looking, too!

I like this one.  Couldn't use my strips of varying widths, but sure could use one of my jelly rolls.
