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"
You will need 72 total jelly roll strips for this project. I chose to cut a few 2.5" x Width of Fabric strips and mixed them in with my jelly roll strips, but the jelly rolls have more than enough strips. Set aside the extra strips for future projects or use them to make your binding.
Take 36 of the jelly roll strips and cut them down to 2.5" x 12.5". Cut the remaining 36 strips down to 2.5" x 6.5". You will need a total of (108) 12.5" strips and (216) 6.5" strips. It sounds like a lot but the precuts make it quick work!
For each block you will need (3) 2.5" x 12.5" strips and (6) 2.5" x 6.5"
Make 35 more blocks.
Baste, quilt, and bind as desired.
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").
