My Own Jelly Roll Racer

Do you remember me talking to you about our Quilt Day here?  We had strips of fabric that we used to make our own jelly rolls and then sewed them to make a quilt.  It takes 40 strips and the directions are here. 

Using my own Christmas fabric, I finished a top today.   I didn't count exactly 40 strips as I used left over pieces of fabric, fat quarters and some pieces that were the width of the fabric.  I really like the way it turned out.  
I'm thinking I should cut up all of my Christmas fabric into 2.5 inch strips.  I could make a couple more of these and also use the strips to make 2.5 inch squares for 4 patch or 9 patch blocks.  I've used up all of my Valentine fabric and most of my St. Patrick's Day fabric.  Why not clear this out too????
