Gotta Love Jelly Rolls and Charm Packs

Wow what a great innovation the jelly roll is. You get a tiny smidge of each fabric in a range and you can do lots with it. The sawtooth stars in my quilt from last post was made with a charm pack and jelly rolls. Last night a saw a wonderful quilt made from 1 jelly roll all that was needed was a few set in triangles and borders, which the quilter had found in her stash. All it was was strips sewn together then triangles cut from 45 degree then sewn together to form squares and it looked absolutely fabulous and it only took 6 hours to make.

I haven't tried a jelly roll yet but I do keep giving them the eye when I go into the shops.
