    I saw on Pinterest somebody took an old ladder and draped their JR over the rungs then leaned it against the wall. It looked really cool, was one of those old wooden painting ladders. So there are ways...besides tossing them into a box.

    That's a good question. I want to keep cleaning, so I guess I'll roll them back up!🤣

    Good start! But now they look all ironed and pretty so how are you going to store them so they don't wind up looking like mine

    That's not too bad, it's mostly air. lol I got a little start (didn't take a before pic)

    Not a pre-cut fan as a rule, although I will buy solid all one color JR and charm packs if the sale is good enough.

    Been there done that...only instead of washing a JR, I starched each & every strip!!! NEVER AGAIN, I usually store as manufacture, but I like your suggestion of doing it by color.

    As long as the fabrics play well together, Lorie, I think your orphaned strips should make a delightful quilt.
    I'm not a jelly roll girl either! I don't know what possessed me to keep buying them. Pretty fabrics at a good price I guess. I did that with templates and rulers too. My dd helping me the other day cleaning was like 'Geez mom' lol

    The majority of my JRs still are in their original wrapping & stored in a drawer. I have a few that I've used from that are folded (in 4ths) & laying neatly in a plastic shoe box. The folds will need to be pressed whenever I do use them. Mine are organized by fabric line, not color. They are not tangled.

    That would be fun I'm curious about how you separated them.

    This would be fun to work on. One of my dd's likes rainbow looking things

    Cutting up jelly rolls?

    I've been going through all my precuts and a lot of my jelly rolls ended up all mixed up together. Have you ever separated them by color and not by line? I'm thinking 'that works with that'. I could put together a cute pink and green baby quilt right now.

    I know I can do whatever, I'm just curious if you did that before.
Working...
