I want to use Jenny's method of making 9 patches using Jelly Roll strips, but I'm not sure how many 9 patches one Jelly Roll will yield? Also, does anyone know how big of a 9 patch Jelly Rolls make? I want to make a quilt using snowball blocks and 9 patches, and I'm trying to figure out if I can get away with using a precut for the snowballs or if I need to buy yardage and cut them out myself. Thanks for your help! Here's a picture I found that is basically what I have in mind. I found it at http://www.sewmanyways.blogspot.com

Re: 9 Patch using Jelly Roll Strips
A 4 patch made out of a jelly roll will be 4.5" and charms are 5". You'd have to trim a half inch off a charm square for them to match up.K is for Karen ðŸ˜Šâ€‹ Albuquerque, NM..................

Re: 9 Patch using Jelly Roll Strips
I'm starting to work on that same ninepatch idea based on the video too. Instead of jelly rolls, I'm attacking my stash for autumn colors. Now, I'm wondering how much yardage (mostly from fats) I'll need to equal the yardage of a jelly roll. Still cutting the yardage into 2.5" strips to match with 6.5" squares."Do what you can.

Have you thought about doing it with the 16 patch instead? She has a tut for that, and shows the quilt so you can see the size. But, a 9 patch should work out to be the same size as the one she made.Last edited by kensington; February 2, 2013, 11:14 AM.

Re: 9 Patch using Jelly Roll Strips
Using a jelly roll, how many 9 patch blocks will you get? Am needing to do the dancing nines for grandkids. I will need to make 9 quilts, so I really need to know how many 9 patch I can plan on getting from a jelly roll. Obviously will need to purchase several jelly rolls, so I need help with planning this.

Re: 9 Patch using Jelly Roll Strips
My math: from a Jelly Roll you get 13 sets of 3 strips that are WOF. You cut each of these strips sets in 16 slices 2 1/2" wide, so you have (16 x 13) = 208 groups of slices (3 squares) that you mixmatch in groups of 3 to get (208 / 3) = 69 units of your 9P blocks. You'll have a strip left.
