Welcome Spring


52" x 52"
Hi Quilters...I'm Cherri House of Cherry House Quilts, and this is my first Bake Shop project, it's an honor to join the Bake Shop bunch!
I hope you will enjoy making Welcome Spring, a sweet quilt perfect for an afternoon picnic, a lap quilt for sitting out and reading your favorite book, or covering a little who has fallen asleep.

Cherri


1 Jelly Roll (Botany featured by Lauren + Jessi Jung)


2 yards White Bella Solid (quilt and binding)

58'' x 58'' Batting (recommend Hobbs Heirloom Fusible Batting)
3 yards quilt backing


Use 1/4" seam allowance throughout
Fabric Cutting:

From the White Solid cut 5 2 1/2" strips, join strips together; subcut into the following:

5 each 8 1/2" strips, 4 each 14 1/2" strips, 4 each 10 1/2" strips, 4 each 12 1/2" strips

From the White Solid cut 21 1 1/2" strips, join strips together, subcut into 16 52 1/2" strips



From the White Solid cut 6 2 1/4" strips, joins strips together for binding

From the Jelly Roll select 17 strips for your quilt, arrange on a design wall in a pleasing manner

Label strips 1 through 17


Trim the following amounts from the listed strips:

From strips 2, 6, 10, and 14 cut 6" from the bottom of the strip (not the selvage edge)



From strips 3, 7, 11, and 15 cut 2" from the bottom of the strip (not the selvage edge)

From strips 4, 8, 12, and 16 cut 4" from the bottom of the strip (not the selvage edge)

Remove nothing from strips 1, 5, 9, 13, and 17

Assemble strips:

To strips 1, 5, 9, 13, and 17 add a 2 1/2'' x 8 1/2'' white strip section to the end, press to the dark

To strips 2, 6, 10, and 14 add a 2 1/2'' x 14 1/2'' white strip section to the cut end, press to the dark

To strips 3, 7, 11, and 15 add a 2 1/2'' x 10 1/2'' white strip section to the cut end, press to the dark

To strips 4, 8, 12, and 16 add a 2 1/2'' x 12 1/2'' white strip section to the cut end, press to the dark

Piecing the top:

Stitch a sashing strip to the right of strips 1 through 16, begin from the bottom of the strip (not the selvage end), press to the sashing strip.

Join strip sections by two's, press to the sashing strip, again, begin from the bottom of the strip, not the selvage end.

When all strips are joined, evenly trim the top of the quilt, removing the selvage from the strips.

Prepare the quilt back:

Prepare quilt back by dividing 3 yards of backing fabric into 2 equal lengths.

Join the pieces lengthwise, press open seam allowance

Prepare to quilt:

If using fusible batting, cut the batting to 58'' x 58''

Center the quilt top onto the fusible batting, following manufacturers instructions.

Center the quilt top and batting on the quilt back, and fuse
Quilting Recommendation:

Use a walking foot to create long linear lines for a contemporary look.
Starting in the center of the quilt, stitch in the center of each white sashing strip, moving outward across the quilt in one direction until complete, then repeat on the opposite side.

Next, using the edge of the walking foot as a guide, stitch on the inside of each fabric strip from the left and right side.

On the left and right sides of the quilt, stitch and 1/8 of an inch from the raw edge the length of the quilt to secure prior to binding.

Trim excess fabric and batting around the quilt.

Binding, label, and enjoy!





Enough strips for two quilts from each jelly roll

I hope enjoy making this quick little spring time quilt!

Lindsay said...

This is super cute, i may have to try a scaled down version as a baby quilt for this one, thanks for the great pattern!!

Cbar said...

I'm getting lost with the white strip instructions. Why sew all them together and then cut? Why 1/2" strips? I'm just not getting it somehow.

Cynthia said...

Cbar, the 1/2" bit is a typo. If I'm looking at the right point in the instructions it's suppose to be 52 1/2 inches. But I don't sew them all together just to cut them apart. I just cut one continuous length and it's worked just fine for me.

Teresa Eliason said...

I made this quilt using a Verna jelly roll for a friend's baby girl and I loved how it came out.

Julie said...

I made a quilt using this pattern and I looooove it! Thanks, Cherri!

Take a look.

I will say that if I make it again -- very likely -- I'll change the process a bit. I found that when I sewed all the strips in the same direction, as the instructions say, my quilt developed a definite bend. I did much better on the second half of the quilt, when I alternated the direction of my sewing as I pieced.

Thanks again. Love this one!

Hannah said...

so excited to make this quilt! Just one question i hope someone can answer...what is the seam allowance? 1/4"? 1/2"? thanks!

chq said...

Hi Hannah! Yes, use 1/4" seam allowance throughout.

Happy Quilting!

Cherri

Hannah said...
