You will need atleast:
16 jelly roll strips (2.5 inch strips) -JR
16 honeybun strips (1.5 inch strips) -HB
Cut (16) 1.5 inch strips of background fabric -B
create groups of 1JR strip, 1 HB strip and one B strip as shown.
I divided mine by color, however, it could be done scrappy.
Here is the lay-out
HB strip, B strip and then JR strip.
Sew the HB strip to the 1.5 inch B strip
press open.
Next add the Jelly roll strip, sew and press.
Repeat this 15 more times.
Take the pieced strips and subcut them to 4.5 inch segments.
Arrange the 4.5 inch squares into a nine patch.
Carefully place the squares so that you are consistent as to which strip is “up” or turned to the right, always a HB strip up? or JR?
sew your blocks together, being mindful of your strip placement.
the result is 16 ziggy blocks.
sew them together in a 4 block X 4 block arrangement.
the top center should measure 49.5″ X 49.5″
Cut (2)  green border strips 8.5 inches  X 49.5 inches (or your top measurement)  and add borders to top and bottom of quilt only.
Quilt as desired….overall meader, a flower or even a double bubble design.
Bind and fini!
Lap size quilt 49″ X 65″
I hope this has inspired you to create today!
