I recently was going on a weekend quilting retreat, and hadn't gotten my project cut out that I wanted to work on. So I grabbed this book and two of my unopened Jelly Rolls, and I was set! I got the blocks for two tops together, and one set of blocks set together and ready for borders. This book really makes good use of the 40-strip Jelly Roll -- all but two quilts will use the whole Jelly Roll, and some may require the addition of a background fabric or borders. Many of these are traditional designs, or variations on traditional designs, but the authors have done all the arithmetic to know how many blocks you can get, and what size quilt you can make, from one Jelly Roll's worth of strips. They also tell you how to figure out how to make a larger quilt, if you'd like to do that. These designs would also easily translate to strips that you cut from your stash, or to scrap strips, if you're like me and have a collection of those as well. I've been quilting for about 20 years, but I still really enjoy projects that go together quickly and simply, but don't look like they're "quick and easy" quilts. The patterns in this book give me that. I'll definitely be making more of the quilts in this book, whether with Jelly Rolls or with strips I cut myself. Enjoy!
