It's a stitch. Sew what, you wonder? Welcome to the world of the Jelly Roll Strip Club.

The name of the club is a conversation piece. It raises some eyebrows.

The club meets bi - monthly at a downtown business in Geneseo. The women involved in the group make beautiful quilts from jelly roll strips. They are forty strips of fabric, two and a half inches wide.

The women are seasoned sewers, running their strips through their Viking, Janome, and Bernina sewing machines. The end results are beautiful quilts. All are colorful. Some have messages sewn on them. Each quilt has its own story.

Several of the quilts are donated to local organizations, including hospitals, food pantries, and other organizations. The women also plan to send quilts to people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Others will be sent to Gilda's Club.

The women have also made Christmas stockings for the military, lap quilts, table runners and purses.

The group has been meeting for about a year and a half. Member Sarah Alexander says sewing is a way for her to make a quilt, brighten somebody's day and let them know that somebody is thinking of them.
