The Stitchers Quilt Guild offered a workshop to members, where everyone brought a jelly roll, a roll of 40 precut 2-1/2 inch fabric strips. Everyone then was given instructions and the race was on.
Members had to sew every strip end to end to have one long 1,600 inch strip, then doubled it over, sew it together, doubled it over again, sewed it together, etc. until members had a quilt top. Members added borders, quilted and bound the quilt at home.
The winner received another jelly roll bundle of fabric to complete another race quilt.
