Jelly Roll Race Quilt

I cut 40 2 1/2" strips from my butterfly fabric collection last night. Today I started piecing them together. This is a very interesting quilt. Once you sew all the strips together into 1 long strip you only sew 5 seams to get a finished quilt. The first seam took 40 minutes and I had a lot of interuptions. The second seam took 20 minutes and the third seam took 10 minutes. The fourth seam took 5 minutes and the fifth seam took 3 minutes.

I'll try to get a better picture of the top after I've pressed it. It was fun and I'm sure I'll make another one.


  1. I am hoping to try one of these in a couple of months. Love yours.

  2. I can't get my mind around how it all comes together but it sounds very interesting!

  3. it's really easy
    there are 2 things you need to remember
    don't twist the strip
    cut part of the 1st strip off
    if you remember to do both of those things
    it'll be easy
    and it's a lot of fun
    I'm hoping to make another one soon
