Jelly Roll Race Quilt

I took the Jelly Roll Race Challenge. I did not have an actual jelly roll so I cut my own out of 10 fat quarters, nine 2″ strips per fat quarter, but you can really make them out of any length of scrap fabric that can be cut into 2″ wide strips. If the lengths are different, it’s even better! The more strips, the larger your quilt top.
I decided to make this for my niece’s high school graduation as a throw quilt for her dorm room.
The strips I used were black and white animal prints. I used this as an opportunity to use black for the quilt backing, white thread for the quilting, and red strips for the binding. I still need to practice binding, but its not too bad for my first time binding!
