Jelly Roll Race Quilts

These are not my favorite quilts, but I can understand why they are being made.  Great for immediate cover.  Though the pattern in and of itself has been done many times before.  I found a couple of examples from the Louisiana Quilt project from the 1940's.  Seems to have been popular about 70 years ago as well for quick cover.

I am never amazed at something new, because with a little research, it almost always shows up as something that has been done before.  I must say, I prefer these past strip style quilts because they were made with not a limited fabric done by one manufacturer but with what they had on hand.  The type of quilting that I really like!
