How many jelly rolls does it take to make a queen size rail fence quilt?
Your queen sized Jelly Roll Race Quilt, with horizontal strips, and no border, will take 64 strips for the initial quilt + 32 strips for the add-on section = 96 strips need for the whole Jelly Roll Race Quilt top. So you need 3 fabric jelly rolls (with 40 fabric strips in each jelly roll) to make this quilt.
What size is a Jelly Roll Race quilt?
So your standard Jelly Roll Race Quilt makes a finished top that is approximately 50 x 60 inches. This is fine for a throw quilt, or if you add a border it would work for a full sized bed. But if you want to make a Jelly Roll Race Quilt for a twin, queen, or king sized bed, you need to do some math.
Can you make a quilt out of one jelly roll?
A lap or baby-sized quilt can be made from 1 jelly roll. Because I love to reuse and upcycle to create a more unique look, I used a combination of both new and repurposed fabrics. If you want to make your own jelly roll strips, just cut 2 1/2 inch wide strips across the width of any fabric.
