    Smaller than 1/4 yd? I don't think so.

      I've ordered 0.5 yds. from M* on numerous occasions. But I bet you have some fabric in your stash that would work. Otherwise just make it smaller. That's very pretty fabric. I've made 2 smaller quilts of 20 blocks each (4 x 5) from charms & JRs. Pics are in my albums.

I understand about not having more money to spend, so lets just have you look at what you already have.
        I was thinking that same thing! Great minds!

        I cut it twice and it was still too short!

          I made one of those and I don't remember how many strips were in my jelly roll but I sure did have enough. See photo in my albums.
          Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

            Those prints remind me a little bit of the Nurture line by MODA. Do you have any of that? I have a piece of yardage I'd be glad to cut you some strips. I used it to make a donation quilt border and I'm not sure how much is left. Let me know.

And there’s going to be 42 strips as well. That’s going to give you 42 finished blocks which means your quilt is going to be six across by seven down. "
              I was shocked when I watched this and she said a jelly roll has 42 strips. A few do, but most have only 40. I mentioned this to a MSQC employee and I think the word was passed on to Jenny, because she has never said that again!

                          Best idea I have heard all day. If the Doan family can transform Hamilton, image what they could do for the USA.

                          Be nice.
