Reviews

Precut fabric is popular with quilters, and this book focuses on one of the best-known precutsthe two-and-a-half inch strip, aka a jelly roll. Erla (Table Talk) explores the possibilities of this simple shape in 12 quilt projects that use such strips as the focal fabric. The projects are divided into three groupingsControlled Colorway, which uses coordinating strips for effect; Distinct Blocks, which features strips as the basis of larger blocks; and Scrap Crazies, which allows quilters to go wild with their leftovers. The projects include quilts in diverse sizes, with most ranging from crib to queen, and there are abundant illustrations and diagrams to guide quilters through the process. VERDICT The use of precut strips makes the projects especially beginner-friendly, but experienced quilters seeking quick ways to use up two-and-a-half inch strips will enjoy Erla's contemporary designs. Library Journal, October 1st, 2015 Gudrun, GE Designs, has put together a book of 12 quilts made from 2.5 inch strips. There are modern and traditional designs included in the book which are made from precut rolls and leftovers. These projects are a great way to reduce your stash. All the quilts have multiple size options-a great feature! I recommend multiple size options as a requirement for all quilt patterns. The Canadian Quilter, Winter 2015 What do you do with all those random leftover strips from jelly roll projects? Strip Your Stash, of course! Gudrun offer 12 fabulous projects in both traditional and modern designs to help you make use of your leftover 2 1/2" strips. Quilter's Connection, Winter 2015
