Sugar Baby Quilt

Finished Size: 32″ X 42″

Hello again!!  It’s Jamie from SunFlower Seeds with my new Moda Bake Shop project! It’s called “Sugar Baby” and is a quilt made from a Jelly Roll!  I hope you like it and if you make one please add it to my Flickr Group!!  And as always be sure to check out my blog {jamiemueller.blogspot.com} and my mom’s blog {sunflower-quilts.blogspot.com} for a giveaway!!


1 Jelly Roll (JR)
1 yd sashing/border fabric
1 yd backing fabric
½ yd binding fabric OR left over JR strips (you’ll have plenty)


 ¼” seam allowance for entire quilt.

Blocks:

1. Choose 12 strips from JR.

2. Take 6 strips and cut each strip as follows:

Two- 10 ½” pieces
Two-2 ½” pieces
One- 6 ½” pieces

*You will have fabric leftover from each of the 6 strips (you do not need these pieces – set them aside).

3. Take the remaining 6 strips and cut each strip as follows:

Two- 4 ½” pieces
Two- 6 ½” pieces

*You will have fabric leftover from each of the 6 strips (you do not need these pieces – set them aside).

4. What I like to do next is layout all 6 blocks as randomly as possible- this helps keep everything together while I’m sewing all the blocks together. Layout blocks with two-10 ½” pieces that are the same fabric, two- 4 ½” pieces of the same fabric, two 2 ½” pieces of the same fabric, two- 6 ½” pieces of the same fabric and one- 6 ½” piece of another fabric. See photo:

5. Sew one 2½” piece and one 4 ½” piece together and press; repeat with the other 2 ½” and 4 ½” pieces.

6. Sew the one different 6 ½” strip in the middle of both 2 ½”/4 ½” pieces, making sure to alternate the two 2 ½”/4 ½” pieces and press.

7. Take the two 6 ½” pieces and sew one on both sides of 2 ½”/4 ½” pieces and press.

8. Sew one 10 ½” piece on top and one 10 ½” piece on the bottom of the block. Press.

9. Repeat steps 4-8 until you have 6 blocks total. Trim up your blocks (they should be around 10 ½” square).

Sashing:

1. Take your sashing/border fabric and cut one strip 2 ½” X WOF (width of fabric) OR you can use a JR strip of the same fabric if you still have it.

2. Cut the 2 ½” strip into four- 10 ½” pieces.

3. Sewing along the 10 ½” side of your blocks, sew one 2 ½” X 10 ½” piece on the bottom of four blocks. Press.

4. Sew two rows of thee blocks each. Each row will be approximately 34” X 10 ½”. Press.

5. Cut one- 4 ½” X WOF strip from sashing fabric for middle sashing. Trim to length of rows. Your piece should be approximately 34”. You should have a 4 ½” X 34” piece for middle sashing.

6. Sew the 4 ½” X 34” strip between the two rows. Press.

Border:

1. Take the border fabric (the fabric left over from sashing) and cut four- 4 ½” X WOF strips.

2. Cut the four strips as follows:

Two- 4 ½” x 24”
Two- 4 ½” x 42”

3. Sew one- 4 ½” x 24” strip on top of your quilt top (the 24” side) and press. Repeat on bottom of quilt top and press.

4. Sew one- 4 ½” X 42” strip on each side of your quilt top and press.

Your quilt top is now finished!

Quilt as desired.

Binding:

1. From binding fabric cut 4- 2 ½” strips OR just use four Jelly Roll strips.

2. Sew all these strips together (short ends) to make 1 continuous strip. Fold binding in half wrong sides together and press. Attach binding to right side of quilt (raw edges even) and machine stitch all the way around. Turn binding to back and hand stitch down. See finished quilt photo.

Finished Size: 32″ X 42″


1 Jelly Roll can make up to three sets of blocks.  Just get extra sashing/border fabric to make more quilts!
