Hello!!! I am KarrieLyne from Freckled Whimsy and I am so excited to be bringing you my very first Moda Bake Shop goodie!! The amazing ideas here at MBS are what got me back into quilting again!! I hadn't really been quilting much and one day I went into my LQS and saw a sign that posted the web address for MBS. I went home and spent hours looking at all the projects and now I can't stop sewing...and now, designing! :)
I am truly honored to be able to share my very first design with you all!
Enjoy ... Random Reflections!
** All seams are to be sewn with 1/4" seam allowance.
1 Jelly Roll print- I am using Fandango
1 Jelly Roll solid in Snow (or 3 yards)
4 yards coordinating print for backing (I used 27044-11)
1 yard for the binding (I used 27051-11)
10 1/2" square ruler (you can use a larger one, but using this ruler makes it MUCH easier)
1. Choose 40 printed jelly roll strips and 40 solid jelly roll strips. Trim the selvage ends.
Press to the printed fabric.
**Note: Make sure your strips are straight. I lined up the outside edges with the lines on the ruler.
Repeat using each of the 40 jelly roll print and solid strips 3 more times. This will give you 160 strip pieces.
Now choose 20 of your favorite prints and 20 of the solid strips and do this once more for each of the 20 strips. This will give you a total of 180 strip pieces.
7. Make your blocks by choosing 5 of the strips you just made and sew them together. You will need 6 blocks for each row so I suggest chain piecing. (Sew two together leaving them in the machine; sew two more, etc, until you have done this 6 times. Remove from the machine and add the third strip, and so on). Strip piecing makes this go much faster. :)
Note: Make sure when sewing these pieces together, that they are all in the same direction. If you start with the solid on top, continue in that same manner for each block.
Here it is made with Eva by Basic Grey. (I made this one 6 rows of 5 blocks, so a bit smaller)
One very unique and modern quilt that measures approximately 60" X 60". There will also be enough strips left over if you'd like to make it larger too. :)
I hope you have enjoyed my first MBS tutorial and I'd love to see your interpretation of this quilt. My favorite part about this quilt is that no two will be alike.
If you make this quilt, I would love it if you added it to my Flickr group --> Freckled Whimsy - Show & Tell! I want to oooohhhh and ahhhhhh over them all!!! :D
