Hello! I am Erica from Kitchen Table Quilting and I am here today with a tutorial for a quilt using MoMo’s gorgeous new fabric line Avant Garden. I made this quilt nice and big with picnics in mind, but it is just as good for snuggling. However you use the quilt, this is a quick way to make a big quilt using jelly rolls.
2 Jelly Rolls Avant Garden
1 Yard Mochi Unbleached Linen
4 1/4 Yard Linen Mochi Dot Boysenberry
Batting at least 76″ x 76″
Place your strips into the following layout.
And start piecing the strips into pairs, pressing the seams open.
Add a third strip to each pair and press.
Then piece the 6.5″ squares together.
And then add the 12.5″ piece to create a 12.5″ square. If you are using a scant quarter inch, you might need to trim your block down a little to get make it 12.5″.
Make 35 more blocks.
Place your blocks into groups of 4, turning them so that the 4 small squares in the center line up. Piece them into pairs and press the seams open.
And then piece the pairs together.
Arrange the squares into 3 rows with 3 squares in each row. Piece the squares together into rows and then join the rows.
Baste, quilt, and bind as desired.
Finished size: 72″ x 72″
I used the linen dot for the back of the quilt and the solid linen for the binding. Not only does it have a wonderful texture, but it was wonderful to work with and gives the quilt a nice weight. If you decide to use linen for the binding I would suggest cutting it slightly wider than normal (I cut mine 2 5/8″ instead of 2 1/2″).
