InstructionsThis is very easy but a little awkward when you just get started. You sew all of your strips end to end for one long strip, then fold that long strip in half and sew a seam all the way along the side. Then cut the fold, open up your strip set, fold in half lengthwise again and sew another seam. Continue doing that until you have the end result.

Jelly roll strips - Batiks mixed with solids. Strips cut from cotton yardage for sashing, border, and binding.
What was your inspiration?
I happened to run across this technique when reading a blog but can't remember which one!
What are you most proud of?
I took the time to pick out solid strips that would compliment the colors of the batik strips and mixed them in. I thought this added a really nice element to the overall look. It turned out really pretty IMHO.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't freak out over the 1600 inch long strip you start out with after sewing all the individual strips end to end, LOL. It was a little mind boggling to me, but it all came out like it was suppose to.
