Eydie A's Jelly Quilt





Mom and I are so excited to bring you our 2nd recipe for Moda Bake Shop! This quilt "Eydie A's" is designed and named in Grandpa's (mom's dad) memory. This lovely quilt uses a jelly roll and both a dark and a light print to set off the scrappy blocks. It is made using Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs...the perfect line for Moda Bake Shop.


Please stop over at our blog and say hi!
enjoy!

1 jelly roll Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs
2 5/8 yards tan sprig on cream for background triangles
3 2/3 yards cream flower on blue for sashing, border, and binding
94 x 108 inches batting
7 1/2 yards backing


Using the Jelly Roll strips piece together in sets of 2 for a total of 20 sets. Do not press yet.


Then piece the sets of 2 together for 10 sets of 4. Now press each strip set so that the seams are going to same way (all to the left or all to the right).


Layout and cross cut them into 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch combination strips for a total of 168 combination strips.


Piece combination strips together into groups of 2. Be sure that seams are pressed opposite of each other when pairing them up.


Piece groups of 2 together for a total of 42--16-patch blocks. Set these aside.


Cut 14--6 3/4 inch strips from the background.


Cut these strips into 84--6 3/4 inch squares. Cut each square in half diagonally once.


Piece the triangles to the blocks.


Piece the triangles opposite and press.


Then piece the remaining triangles. Press.


From the blue... cut 24--3 inch strips for sashing. Using 12 strips, cut 35--3 x 11 3/4 inch sashing strips.
Piece the remaining strips into 6--3 x 86 inch strips


Cut 9--4 inch strips for the borders from the blue and cut 1 strip in half. Piece together 2--4 x 86 inch strips for top and bottom borders. Piece together 2--4 x 106 inch strips for side borders


Cut 9--2 1/4 inch strips for binding from the blue and piece strips end to end.


Layout the quilt as follows: 6 x 7 layout with 86 inch strips running from side to side and the 11 3/4 inch strips running up and down between blocks. Piece together rows of blocks then piece rows to blue sashing strip. Piece borders to top and bottom first then sides.


Layer quilt with backing and batting; quilt as desired. I quilted Eydie A's with a freestyle overlapping meander with white thread.


Trim quilt and stitch binding down.
Then roll the binding over and top stitch binding down (or hand stitch binding down on back).
Eydie A's quilt measuring 88 x 108 inches...

Karin said...

how did you piece the backing for this large of a quilt and only use 7.5 yards? I've never made one larger than 90'' wide, so never came across that problem......

Linda said...

I like this quilt and you make it look easy to do. I've never done binding on by machine, but need to give it a try!

KatheG said...

Love this color combination and the patern. Thank you.

Katie said...

those are some big ole stitches you got on that quilt! Never seen stitches quite that. . . long. Not a "bad" thing. . just "different."

Lexi said...

What a lovely quilt. I love that you can get such a large quilt with only one jelly roll. I like to stretch them to the max.

in regards to the backing...here are the instructions...

from the 7 1/2 yards cut 2--3 1/4 (117 inches) yard pieces and 3--12 x 44 inch pieces.


Piece the 12 inch pieces end to end...then pieces the 117 inch pieces to each side. Finished backing will be approximately 99 inches wide and 117 inches long.

I started on this quilt last week. I just love the colors - I've been staying up late since I started......... I just love the way it is coming together.

Olivia said...

I love it! I think I want to make one without sashing to get like a snowball effect. We'll see! Lovely Quilt!
