I was inspired by the quilts that The Left-Handed Quilter has made from 2 identical jelly rolls. She explains the process well, but I could not grasp it so I thought I would try to make one. Somethings you just have do hands on to get it.
I found 2 great priced Boundless jelly rolls on Etsy and started separating them into groups of 5 with a dark in each group, two indentical strips in each group. There are eight groups of 5. Then I sewed the strips into strip sets in the order I planned trying to go from dark to light. There are normally two identical strip sets, so you can get 6 blocks out of them.
|I put all the strips for each block on a cardboard and stack them |
so I can pin and chain piece. I pin with fork pins at the meeting seams.
