NEW JELLY-ROLLS & FREE PATTERN



The Attic Window Quilt Shop has new Moda Jelly- Rolls. These Marbles are called Citrus, Pastel, Warm, Bright. There are a zillion things you can do with Jelly-Rolls and Robin from News From The Nest has generously agreed to share with our readers her Super Fast Jelly-Roll pattern. Be sure to stop by Robin’s blog here and see what else she’s been up to. Thank you, Robin.


Super Fast Jelly-Roll Quilt

Approximate finished size: 65" X 79"
A friend shared this idea with me.
I've written it up so I can share it. Enjoy!


What you will need: 1 Jelly roll
First border: 1/2 yardSecond border: 1 1/4 yards

Directions: Sew all the jellyroll strips end to end in random order. Cut the selvages off as you go. You will have a very long strip of fabric approximately 1600 inches long.
(40 strips x 40")

Important: Cut 20" off of the beginning of the long strip of fabric and throw it in your stash. You won't be using it. This will make it so your seams will be staggered as you sew them together.Now find the 2 ends of the strip and put right sides together and start sewing!!!Sew down the long side of the strip to the end and cut the loop at the end of the strip.
You now have a very long strip that is 2- jellyroll strips wide.
If you want to at this point, you can press them open, but pressing is really not necessary until you have the whole thing sewn. Remember this is supposed to be a fun and FAST quilt.Don't stress over anything!Next...find the two ends of this long strip again and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end again.
You will now have a strip that is 4- jellyroll strips wide.
Now...find the two ends of this long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end.
You will now have a strip that is 8- jellyroll strips wide.
Again...find the two ends of the long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end.
You will now have strip that is 16- jellyroll strips wide.
For the last time.... find the two ends of the long strip and put right sides together. Sew all the way down to the end and cut the loop at the end.
You will now have a strip that is 32- jellyroll strips wide.
You are finished!!!!
You now have the center of your quilt... It should measure approximately 50" x 64".
Square it up.
Borders are next:
First border: Cut 6 - 2 1/2 inch strips. Join together. Measure and apply borders as shown.
Second border: Cut 7 - 6" strips. Join together. Measure and apply as shown.

Until next time,

Caroll
