Well, Saturday September 18, 2021 was National Sew a Jelly Roll Day. Since I was going to be out of town, I thought I would try a variation of a jell roll quilt that has been intriguing me, it's the center part. This is a Lisa Sutherland quilt that is no longer available for purchase. She is putting together a QOV Pattern book from her webpage, Quilt Jubilee. I'll be buying her book once it hits the internet! I think she might still have a few free patterns available for download.
I pulled out my mega jelly roll I had sewn together with my leftover 2.5 inch strips. Measured 1600 inches minus 18 inches (1582 inches) and starting sewing on my merry way.
My finished panel.
I found directions on a FB page and I followed those. I won't post them here because this is where 'things' headed south. I did the math, un-sewed the required strips then sliced. ummm...that didn't work.
I've been thinking about this. I think that the panel needs to be square before slicing. It also need to be divisible by 2 evenly. For example: 48 x 48 would work since 48 divide by 2 = 24. Which will give you 24 rows of 2 inch strips. 50 x 50 wouldn't work because 50 divided by 2 = 25. An uneven number of 2 inch strips...my panel was 50 inches across and 64 inches down....not good.
I'll be re-visiting this at a later date as I still have a pretty big jelly roll.
In the mean time, I'm working up a plan to use the mis-cut jelly roll panel.
Linking up with Judy at Design Wall Monday.
