Jelly Roll Races

You have seen this quilt all over blogland.  I made one before, but a few friends from my monthly bee decided that we should do it and “race”.  Some called it the “Jelly Roll Stroll” – which was pretty good.

I finished first (though it took me the longest to prep before we all started)  The flying geese made a nice touch I think.CIMG0380

Next came Maureen:

    I love yours with the triangles. Did youjust have them precut and add in between the strips?

    I posted a link to your blog in one of my forums and hopefully you got a few hits. Now there’s a lot of discussion on how else to tweak the pattern. One lady used 2.5″ white squares between her strips. I can’t make a clickable link for some reason but here’s one you can copy if you’d like to see her variation.
