Jelly Roll 500

My quilter friend Rachel is very clever. Because of her I am involved with The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild and am listening to quilting podcasts. At our last meeting she brought in a "Jelly Roll" quilt top. The technique is the Jelly Roll Race Quilt. I started with 3" strips and joined them together like this:
The result was one extremely long piece. Then with right sides together, I began with the two ends of this long strip and sewed them together.
My set is now 4 strips wide. I'm done for the day. I can't wait to get back to this tomorrow.
