Make Your Own Jelly Strips Super Quick

And Quick Cut Mini Charm Squares Just The Same

If your favorite pre-cut is a jelly roll, and love patterns that utilize Jelly Roll strips, use this method to cut a pile of fabric in a matter of minutes. Then cut 2 1/2″ squares from the strips in a flash. In no time your fabric cuts are complete and ready to start making a jelly roll quilt.


Sewing with pre-cut strips and piecing strip sets is definitely the time saver for block construction. Accuracy in cutting as well as sewing is key, and is so easy to achieve with a little help of a quilting ruler. Just try a couple of practice runs. You’ll be amazed at how quick strips can be cut from yardage and fat quarters!
