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:
- Left and right borders - 46.5" long. Sew these on first.
- 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. :)
