Yum, Jelly Rolls

I was browsing the Fat Quarter Shop when I noticed the words Jelly Roll in the left menu. I like jelly rolls. When I clicked the link, I was surprised to find fabric jelly rolls. Companies, such as Moda, will take a collection of fabric, create 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric using the entire width of the fabric, roll them all and sell them in packs. I've been sewing almost my entire life and have never heard of this. These jelly rolls can be used in any kind of strip piecing projects. After more searching I found this kit. Oh boy! There are enough strips in the jelly roll to make 2 bags. What fun, bright, springtime fabrics in this collection. Here is the one I made.

Yum, jelly rolls!
