    Question Downton Abbey Jelly Roll

    This is my first jelly roll and I ordered a Downton Abbey Jelly Roll. Should all the different fabric strips be placed together. ie: there are 4 strips of each fabric together when the jelly roll is opened (4 purple, 4 light purple, 4 cream, 4 grey, etc.). After watching the video tutorial it appears that the strips are different fabrics sewn together as it comes off the jelly roll rather than the same fabric strips sewn together. Would someone please advise as to how a jelly roll is laid out and whether I should sew the jelly roll as it came or sew the different fabrics together? Thanks so much.

    If you are asking about the Jelly Roll Race quilt, you do not put the matching strips together, use them as they come off the jelly roll. Jenny has a few tutorials on different ways to do this. Here are the youtube links. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    If the links aren't working, please let me know and I will try again.

    I had a Downton Abbey Jelly Roll as well. I really don't care for the jelly roll race quilts (I did one just to check!) and I found this pattern and used that jelly roll to make it. I used black for the sashing and the borders.

    Thank you so much Mina Jane. I've watched the youtube video's before purchasing the jelly roll. With this Downton Abbey Jelly Roll the fabric's come sorted together and since it's the first jelly roll I've purchased I didn't think I was suppose to sew the same fabrics together but wanted to make sure.

    Bubba, Love the Color Me Happy Quilt. I was hoping to complete Jelly Roll Race Quilt with the Dowager Countess Jelly Roll. I just wasn't sure if the fabrics went together or if I was supposed to separate them when I began the quilt. Do you have a picture of the Jelly Roll Race you completed with the Downton Abbey Jelly Roll? I'd love to see it. Thanks so much for your reply and suggestion.

    Oh, I really like your Color Me Happy quilt! I have only made two quilts so far but I think that may be my third! Thank you.

    I'm sorry if I confused you. I did not do a JRR with this jelly roll. I did the Color Me Happy. I used a different one for the JRR.

    It's really quick to sew together! May have taken one afternoon.
