    Default Hexi quilt from a jelly roll

    Does anyone know the approximate size for a quilt made with the 5 inch hexi ruler and one jelly roll? Trying to figure out if I need to order another jelly roll or if one will be enough. I looked at the tutorial for the one Jenny made with the origins jelly roll but no finished measurements are given.

    Thanks,
    JackieK

    I don't know the exact measurements, but the one I did was just under twin size and I added a narrow border, probably 3 inches. It covered the top of a twin bed, but really didn't have much overhang at all.

    Sorry I can't be more specific.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Thanks Karen! I think I will order another jelly roll. I prefer bigger quilts with a good amount of overhang.

    Probably depends on how you make it, if you add background. I made this one from a 20 strip roll plus background and it finished at 44 x 66".Click image for larger version.

    I made mine from one jelly roll and it was a small lap. I added three borders that added an additional 6 inches around and it works for DH to take a nap!!Click image for larger version.
