Sometimes quilters prefer strips rather than charm squares. That is what this is all about. You can, of course, use these to bind a quilt or make the field of a log cabin, scrap or crazy quilt. But strips lend themselves to making diaper bags, toddler backpack, other bags, table runners and other fun projects. Great for scrappy half square triangles - see pictures.
Offered here is a fabric modified "jelly roll" - 40 strips of novelty fabric, 2.5" wide. Better than a store bought jelly roll because all the strips are unique. (Traditional Jelly Rolls are 40 full widths strips - with duplicates within the roll. ). You can choose to have full width strips (42") or 1/2 width strips (21").
Choose the exact lot you want from the pictures. Lots A, B, and C are Full Width Strips - selvage to selvage Lots D and E are Half width strips (21")
To help you calculate what you might make with this product here is the comparison for flat fabric to strips. Traditional full width jelly roll is 2.75 yards of fabric - but when you sew the strips together, you lose material in the seams. If you were to sew all the strips of a jelly roll together, the resulting piece of whole cloth would be about 2.25 yards. Half width modified jelly roll is 1.3+ yards of fabric; as above, you lose material in the seams. All the strips sewn together would be about just over one full yard (1.11 yd).
I will make every effort to eliminate duplicates if you order multiple packages.
I will send you a mix of light and dark background fabric filled with a variety of subjects.
Animals, Babies, Birds, Bugs, Destinations, Dinosaurs, Dr. Seuss, Fantasy, First Responders, Fish & Amphibians, Flowers, Fruit & Things to eat, Movie characters, Muppets, Music, Nursery Rhymes, School, Science, Sports, Street signs, Superheros, Transportation, Celebrations, Things to wear, Toys
If you are looking for certain colors or prints, please let me know and I will try to accommodate.
All fabrics are 100% cotton.
**Please note: you are not guaranteed to receive the exact fabrics as shown in the photos. This is an example of the variety you might see in a typical I Spy Jelly Roll** I've bought what tickles me.
