Jelly roll braid quilt would be new for me to make. I have made log cabin blocks, this is different but I imagine fun to try.

I would like to make as queen/king do you have any additional instructions for this size? Thank you

How many jelly rolls needed for queen size quilt using the Jelly Roll Braid quilt pattern?

Why can't I open project? I keep getting send to a website domain registration page. Not a happy camper at this point.

I love making this quilt, but I learned a new trick on the second row. I started ironing just the top instead of back to front. It made the rows more even and I didn't get a wonkie cut at the end.

JLB, do you mean you iron only the front of the pieces as you sew them--not setting the seam on the back first? I'm about to try this quilt and sure don't want wonkie!
