Sunset Ridge Quilt

MBS-SunsetRidge_Title

Hello everyone!  My name is Chrissy Lux and I co-own Sew Lux Fabric with my mom.  I am really excited to be back on the Moda Bake Shop sharing another project with you today.

V & Co’s new Simply Colorful line (coming out in July) is full of beautiful warm colors.  Moda has bundled these by color and the come in these cute Junior Jelly Rolls (20 strips)!  Here’s a fun & quick quilt project that could easily be enlarged to make a bigger version – just add more strips & rows!

Once you have gathered all your materials, its time to cut!

From your Jelly Roll strips:

Cut sixty (60) 2.5″ x 6.5″ rectangles.  (I cut two from each print in red, orange, and yellow.)

From your background:

Cut two (2) 4.5″ x WOF strips

Cut two (2) 8.5″ x WOF strips

Cut four (4) 2.5″ x WOF strips.

Subcut the 2.5″ wide background strips into 2.5″ squares.  You’ll need 60 squares.

Let’s sew it together! (Sew right sides together and use a 1/4″.)

Step 1: Sew a 2.5″ background square to one end of each 2.5″ x 6.5″ print rectangle.  Chain piecing makes this go quick!

Press each unit toward print fabric.

Step 2: Sew twenty pieced rectangles together joining the long sides and alternating them as shown to make a row. Press all seams in one direction.

Repeat steps 1 and two to make three rows.

 Step 3: Assemble the quilt!  Your rows should measure 40.5″ wide.  Trim your 4.5″ and 8.5″ wide background strips to 40.5″ long.  Sew a 4.5″ wide strip on the top and the bottom sides of row two.  Press toward the background strip. Then add row one and row three  to the top and bottom of the center unit.  Finally, add the 8.5″ wide strips to the top and bottom to complete the top.

Step 4:  Baste and quilt as desired.  I glue basted and quilted in a fun square pattern.

Step 5: Cut six 2.5″ x WOF strips from your binding fabric.  Join end-to-end and attach to the front.  Finish by hand or machine.  (Need help binding?  MBS tutorial here.)

One cute 40″ x 50″ quilt.  This is a great kid-sized quilt.  Make it bigger by adding more strips to each row (wider) and another row (longer).

FYI – Junior Jelly Rolls have 20 strips. You can also use one regular Jelly Roll (40 strips) of your favorite collection to make it scrappy instead of color-blocked.
