It's been a while since I used a jelly roll. In fact, technically speaking, I'm not sure I have ever used an actual jelly roll, as that term is specific to Moda rolls of 2 1/2" precut strips. I have, however, used other assorted packs of 2 1/2" strips. I even have two strip-friendly patterns to revisit for National Sew a Jelly Roll Day today: Sprinkled and Topiaries.

I just love this version of Sprinkled, made by my friend Theresa. It's bright and happy and easy. It keeps the strips mostly intact and uses a simple cut-and-replace technique to add the sprinkling of triangles. The pattern uses 36 of the strips in a pack. Some of those 36 strips are used for the little triangles in the border and for the binding.
My version used a strip pack of Shimmer from Northcott in a single colorway, for a more serene quilt.
