One of the nicest gifts any quilter could receive is a Jelly roll. Now the edible kind is great but this is a roll of 2 1/2″ strips of 32 different fabrics. Moda, Kauffman and others precut the strips which really helps.
This is a pattern called Strip Search – You make strips of 5 or 6 fabrics, cut into squares, cut on the diagonal, and sew to other cut pieces. It makes an interesting pattern with all the different fabric. It makes up quick and the receiver is always happy. This one I kept and use it often. The cats love it too.
