I can't seem to find the 24 free jelly roll quilts. Everything I click on goes to the same page, or doesn't let me click on it.

Hi, Jdiestel! Hmmm. I'm not sure I understand the problem you're experiencing. These links will each send you to a different tutorial on FaveQuilts. For example, if you click on "Raggedy Basketweave Quilt," it will take you to the tutorial for that quilt. If that's not happening, please contact our customer service with details of the issue and we'll do our best to help you figure it out!

I used this basic idea and then added a few twists to fit my likes. I added a column of solid between each row of braid and border. Also broke it up by putting a crosswise strip about 2/3 way down. It turned out great.

HELP! How do I print some of the Free Jelly Roll Patterns? I have lots of left-overs and the projects look great!

JESTGR8, You can save them here as stated by EditorNT or you make a new folder in documents on your computer and save it to there. You need to be logged in to save to your folder here. It says Save Project and is just above the main photo. Don't forget to check out the different categories on the left hand side of the page. Happy quilting.

This might be a little late, but here goes: I found a shortcut to print things. Try Control Shift P. Then you get a page saying a bunch of stuff including from page... to page... I found out you get all the comments if you just hit Print ALL...so now I estimate page 1 of 3 or maybe just page 1-2. You can delete what's there and tyype in whatever pages you want. If you need another page,, you can always add "page 4-4" Hope this helps.

I'm looking for instructions on how to make the Jelly Roll Quilt (the one they use in races) that would come out 60 x 90 or close to it. Can anyone help.

Type in missouri quilts on u tube...there are videos there for this that make it very easy!

Please, I need general directions for a jellyroll. not patters just general derections on how to piece strips together.

I can't make folders to put my projects into. I don't understand what to do. debra@cnysewer@gmail.com

Hi cnysewer, if you look to the right side of the page, there is something called "My Quilt Basket." You can save your patterns there. Hope this helps!

loved the hexy idea and yes the explanation was weird but it sure made sense in the end. Can hardly wait to try this!!

Where do I find the "hexy idea"? I've been wanted to try something in hexagons, so hope this is the answer to prayer. Thank you
