I am a very proud Momma. My daughter Kate just finished her second 1600 Jelly Roll Challenge. It is going off to Sandi to Long Arm Quilt. Let me explain what a Jelly Roll Challenge is. Quilt shops sell fabric lines, an example is this Moda Kansas Troubles. There may be any where from 20 to 40 different fabric prints in this line. The manufacturer will cut a 2 1/2 inch strip from the bolts of fabric and sell them as a "Jelly Roll" Most fabric is 40 inch in length. Kate sewed these stripes end to end forming one long strip measuring 1600 inches. Then with help from a friend, she would sew the ends together, making one double wide strip of 800 inches. She continued sewing end to end till a quilt is formed. Then adding a thin and wide border, her quilt is complete!!
Please feel free to add your comments and suggests. I hope we can keep each other in STITCHES!!!!!
