I guess I'm just too old school to pay what I think is big money for someone to cut up perfectly good fabric into strips for quilts. I learned about quilt piecing back when you made them from old clothes. Yes I'm dating myself. That was the beauty of quilts. Love bounced out of those quilts because they were made from things that had memories.
I guess jelly rolls, fat quarters, cakes etc. came out of the fact that fabric stores didn't like cutting off quarter & half yards as ladies did start buying fabric to make quilts. And, while they are at it, they are going to charge for the labor of cutting up these good pieces of fabrics into smaller pieces, and rightly so.
I've now deboned 6 more of Dad's shirts to start the second memory quilt. These are my old fashioned jelly rolls.
I explained last month how I deboned a quilt into strips HERE.
Yeah, before long I'll probably see a jelly roll that I'll fall in love with and buy the expensive thing. Meanwhile, I'll be happy with these.
