    Default jelly rolls/precuts ideas

    Hi I have two packs of precut 2.5 inch WOF strips. One is plain black and one patterned, with black in it. Any ideas of the design this would suit, please? also the size of the finished quilt, using just this amount of fabric.
    Many thanks
    Fran

    have you checked the quilt tutorials for 2.5 strips? She has a lot of good patterns. Just look up above on the blue banner and it is second to the right. You might also google black and colored jelly roll quilts. Who knows what you might find.

    I think a summer in the park would look nice. Most people use white, but the black would be pretty I think,

    Think of the black as your background fabric in the tutorials. Jenny usually uses white. Or mix them up together .

    I agree using the black as borders or background. So many patterns. You could put colored squares on each end of strips

    I'm using two jelly rolls now to make a log cabin.
