    I made a small lap quilt for my daughter for Christmas out of one jelly roll. It was bigger than a crib quilt.

    A jelly roll is 42 2.5 strips of fabric. So, that would be 105 inches of fabric, 45 inches wide. It's 2.9 or almost 3 yards of fabric. So a good sized baby quilt for sure. I'd say an "Over Sized" baby quilt. Depending on how you cut it or use it. Have fun!

    Most jelly roll quilts will end up being about 55" wide and 64" long. Since you make 32 rows of fabric that end up being 2" wide after you sew them together, you are going to end up with one that long. If you use less strips than 40, you can make it narrower. It's just the way it's constructed that makes it end up one length all the time. The number of strips determines the width of the quilt.

    Of course, you could just put the strips together one at a time and then you can stop when it is the right length. I know crib size batting is 36" by 45". So I guess that is a standard size for a baby quilt.
