I’m so happy to be showing you my latest Moda Bake Shop Project, Chain of Faith. If you are looking for a quilt pattern that looks complicated but is actually not, Chain of Faith might be just the quilt for you! If you haven’t seen or touched the fabric yet, you are going to want to. This fabric feels like it’s already been loved. It’s so soft and cuddly. If you want to see more behind the scenes information about the quilt make sure to stop over to my blog, Jo’s Country Junction.
2 Collections for a Cause-Faith Jelly Rolls
3.5 Yards of Red Collections for a Cause-Faith 4609016 for cornerstones, border and binding
6 yards of Collections for a Cause-Faith 4609123 backing fabric
There isn’t room for error when cutting the jelly rolls. You may want to purchase an extra 1/4 yard of fabric…just in case.
From the red cut: 41 – 2.5″ strips
Set 8 aside for borders
Set 8 aside for binding
Sub cut 32 – 11″ pieces
Sub cut 219 – 2.5″ pieces
From Jelly Rolls (I set the solid red, brown and cream pieces aside)
From 11 strips sub cut 32 – 11″ pieces
From 29 strips sub cut 144 – 8.5″ pieces
From 22 strips sub cut 128 – 6.5″ pieces
From 15 strips sub cut 128 – 4.5″ pieces
You will need to use leftover pieces from previous strips to complete the number of strips needed.
There is VERY little leftover fabric when making this project, so cut carefully.
Take the 11″ red strips and sew to the 11″ strips along the length of the pieces. Press to the red.
Sub cut into 4 – 2.5″ pieces.
Mix and match the pieces sewing them together to make scrappy four patch blocks.
Sew a 4.5″ piece to each 4 patch as shown.
Sew a 2.5″ red square to a 4.5″ piece.
Sew the piece onto the main block.
Sew a 6.5″ piece to the main block.
Sew a 2.5″ red square to a 6.5″ piece.
Sew the piece to the main block.
Repeat the process making a total of 64 blocks.
The next step is to take four of your smaller blocks, four 8.5″ sashing strips, and a red cornerstone and sew them into a block as shown. Be careful to sew them together so that the small red squares form an “X”. Also be careful to sew them together so that the vertical stripes of the block are across from each other.
Repeat making a total of 16 of these larger blocks. Set them aside.
Sew a red cornerstone between two sashing pieces as shown. Make 20 all together.
Now take four of your blocks and five sashing pieces. Sew the sashing pieces to them as shown.
It is really easy to turn the blocks in the wrong direction. Look at the photo closely and see how the blocks are still forming an “X” and the vertical strips in the block are still vertical. Make a total of four rows.
Now make sashing to strips to go between the rows. You will need to eight 8.5″ pieces and 9 red cornerstones for each row, starting and ending with a cornerstone.
Connect them as shown. Make a total of five sashing strips.
Now sew the rows and the sashing strip together to form your quilt top. A sashing row will be at the top and at the bottom as well as between the block rows.
Take your border strips and sew them together. Attach to your quilt and your quilt top is finished.
Piece your backing together and quilt as desired.

This fabric line is SO soft….now it’s perfect for a cup of cocoa and a snuggle.
Typically when I show a Moda Bake Shop project, my beagle Gracie is part of the photo shoot. She wasn’t feeling the best when we took the photos…Stop on over the blog and see how she’s doing at our blog Jo’s Country Junction.
