    Plain Jelly Roll Help

    Early in my quilting career, I purchased a jelly roll. I thought it was going to be all one shade of cream, but it was various shades ranging from yellow-cream to a dark khaki. I simply don't know what to do with it. Can't be used for background, so what do I use it for? Thanks.

    You could use it for the background on this jelly roll pattern. Just pick any colored jellyroll for the other part of the pattern.

          You could use it for one side of a log cabin block.

              Almost any Bonnie Hunter quilt has various neutral colors used together for backgrounds.

                I would set it aside for a future log cabin. Usually you never have enough lights and this is a full range. They will be perfect.

                        Thank you ALL for the great ideas. I was having trouble thinking outside the box I had envisioned!

                          I think I must have that same jelly roll. I had so many ideas for it, but have yet to use it. I like the idea of a log cabin. I have yet to make one, but this could be interesting.

                          Post the one you finally makes

                          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
