At the 3:00 mark, she demonstrates how to connect the strips incorrectly.  The line she draws with her finger goes the wrong direction.  DO NOT sew the corners "mountain to valley" like her finger shows.  Instead, sew from outside corner to outside corner - the opposite of what she shows.  When she proceeds to do this on the machine, she does it correctly, and you can see this if you look closely as they come off the machine.

Yes, a close up of the sewing would've been helpful. But I love her videos 😊 Thanks for sharing

I wish I had read this before starting. I put all mine together wrong and had to undo them. It isn't the best step by step video they have done. I have been fine with others. I am making this now. Hoping I get it right. Just not sure when I'm supposed to stop putting the rows together.

It's nice to see a 'professional' using a singer machine. I've lamented for too long thinking most of the quilt patterns I see on you tube can 'only' be made on a machine that costs $3-4000. (I have a singer patchwork and I LOVE it!)
You are so much fun to watch but you go so fast...lol... AS a beginner I wish some of the key points were explained just a little more detailed. Thank you so much..Loved watching you~

Jenny, how many strips would i need if i wanted to make a quilt sized for a baby?

HI Jenny,  I love this quilt and I used it as a background for an applique on the top of it - turned out great.  One thing I do, when I start cutting them apart, I throw the end over my shoulder - then I don't have to find it later - it's right there....

I'm just a watcher/ wish that I could do that, viewer, but the first thing I thought when Mrs. Doan 'started' sewing the strips, was that I wish the camera was over the sewing machine, so that I could actually 'see' how she attached the corner-to-corner pieces. I'll figure it out by watching more vids, but, that would've been really helpful to me as a newby-wanna-be quilter.

Well its been 10 months since I watched this for the first time and I've made a few crib quilts and opened up my jelly roll and unrolled it all over the place. Not very good instructions with it. I can't understand how she can just grab one and sew it without somewhere having them get twisted around. Not sure I even want to try this. Are there any better instructions on the internet that aren't going at warp speed?
You're right about the fabric strips twisting. I had to think on it for a while myself. I see now that since there is a fold at the end of sewing each time, just cut the fabric before you get to the very end and line them up. As the project progresses, this becomes less of a problem.

OH JENNY! This is too much fun! So cute! Thinking that I might challenge my sister to a Jelly Roll Race!
