Summer Love


 



Hi Everyone! It’s Jera from www.QuiltingInTheRain.blogspot.com bringing you another MBS tutorial! This is a simple and beautiful quilt that will make your favorite fabrics pop! Check out my 3-step tutorial below that uses jelly roll strips to make the entire quilt top.

I used the Summer House collection by Lily Ashbury. Make one yourself and checkout my blog at www.QuiltingInTheRain.blogspot.com for a chance to win a Terrain jelly roll by Kate Spain!

  • 1 jelly roll (you will have plenty of leftover strips!)
  • 1 solid white jelly roll
  • 3 yards backing


Step 1 – Trim the strips from both the colored and solid white jelly roll to the exact measurements represented in the cutting diagram below. (Note: the measurements below are the exact cutting measurements of the unfinished pieces). Since a jelly roll strip is 2.5″x44″ long, in some cases you will need to sew a couple strips together and then trim it to get the measurements shown below.

Step 2 – Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew all the pieces in each row together, and then sew all rows together.


Step 3 – Add the borders. Sew enough strips together until you have these measurements:

  1. Left and right borders – 46.5″ long. Sew these on first.
  2. Top and bottom borders – 57″ long.


Layer and quilt.

Sew together six leftover strips to create the binding. A binding tutorial can be found here.

That’s it! Simple and absolutely beautiful! Let me know if you have any questions. šŸ™‚

Happy Quilting!
