Print This Chart and Keep It Handy!
Jelly roll strips, those pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips of fabric, are so handy. They can save a lot of time and many quilt patterns have been developed to take advantage of them.
Plus, a roll of forty 42-45″ strips is color coordinated, saving you time and uncertainty in fabric selection.

You’ve probably seen many quilts featuring the strips, but you may be less aware that the strips can also be cut up into other shapes. Two and a half inch squares are an obvious choice, but triangles can also be cut from them.

The following chart from allpeoplequilt.com shows you how many squares and triangles you can cut from a jelly roll. This is handy to have on hand when you want to make a project from a favorite jelly roll that doesn’t necessarily require strips.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
