Hi! It’s Deb again from Gathering Friends Quilt Shop, here to share my latest Bake Shop recipe with you using a Jelly Roll. I sewed this one up during a weekend retreat and the gals loved it. I hope you do too! This quilt finishes at 69½”x 85½”. Be sure to check out the little runner at the end of this recipe!

1 “Larkspur”Jelly Roll by *Three Sisters*

1-1/8 yards Dark

1-7/8 yards Light

2-3/4 yards Outer Border and Binding

5-1/4 yards Backing

- (13) 9½” squares

From light:

- (17) 9½” squares

- (18) 4½” x 8½” rectangles

From outer border:

- (4) 9½” squares
- (14) 4½” x 8½” rectangles
- (40) 4½” squares
- (8) 3″ x width of fabric strips
- (8) 2¾” x width of fabric strips
*(Binding)*

You will need 32 jelly roll strips for this quilt. Pick your favorites. I used the pinks, reds, turquoises and yellows and a few of the cream prints and tan prints. Set aside the remaining creams and tans for my next project “Spinning Spools”.

Sew (4) 2½” x 42″ jelly roll strips together. Press seams in one direction. Make 8 strip sets. Cut each strip set into (4) 8½” squares. Make 32 Block A.

*For this step you will use (13) 9½” dark and (13) 9½” light squares. *Layer a 9½” dark and 9½” light square, right sides together. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner. Sew ¼” on each side of the line.

Cut on the line. Press seams toward the dark.

Proof to 9″. *To proof means to square up your block. This is an important part of quilting. If you don’t do this, your pieced blocks will not fit together properly.*

Make 26 dark pieced squares. *You’ll have one extra pieced square as you will only need 25.*

*For this next step, use 18 of the above pieced squares.*

Layer two 9″ dark pieced squares, right sides together, making sure the dark triangles are opposite each other and the diagonal seam is matching. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner in the opposite direction of the existing seam.

Stitch ¼” on each side of the line. Cut on the line. Press seam open.

Proof block to 8½”. *This one is a little more difficult to square up. If you have a square with two intersecting diagonal lines it helps. If you only have the one diagonal line like the square below, line up one of the seams with the diagonal on your square, with the center intersecting lines on the 4¼” mark. Then look at the 8½” corners. You want the seams to be right on the 8½” corner. Trim one side and the top, then rotate your square to trim the remaining sides. * Make 18 Block B.

Layer a 9½” outer border square and 9½” light square, right sides together. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner. Sew ¼” on each side of the line. Cut on the line. Press seams toward the outer border. Proof to 9″. Make 8 border pieced squares.* You’ll have one extra pieced square as you will only need 7.*

Layer a 9″ dark pieced square and a 9″ border pieced square, right sides together, making sure the light triangles are opposite each other and the diagonal seam is matching. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner in the opposite direction of existing seam. Stitch ¼” on each side of the line. Cut on the line. Press seam open. Make 14 Block C.

Position a 4½” outer border square on one end of a 4½” x 8½” light rectangle. Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner. Stitch on the line. Trim seam allowance to ¼”. Press seams open. Save your cutoff triangles for my next project “Spinning Spools”

Repeat on the opposite end. Proof to 4½” x 8½”. Make 18 flying geese.

Sew (3) Block A and (2) Block B together. Sew a Block C and a 4½” x 8½” outer border rectangle to each strip end. Refer to diagram below for placement. Press seams toward Block A. Make 4 strips.

Sew (4) Block A and (3) Block B together. Sew a flying geese to each strip end. Press seams toward Block A. Make 3 flying geese strips.

Sew the above 7 strips together. Press seams away from the flying geese strips.

Sew (4) Block A and (3) Block C together. *Pay close attention to the direction of the blocks.* Sew a flying geese to each strip end. Press seams toward Block A. Make 2 strips. Sew one to the top and bottom of the quilt. *Pay close attention to the direction of Block C as you want the border print to be on the outside of the quilt.*

Sew (4) flying geese and (3) 4½” x 8½” outer border rectangles together. Press seams toward the rectangles. Sew a 4½” outer border square to each end, pressing toward the squares. Make 2 strips. Sew to the top and bottom of the quilt.

Quilt should measure 64½” x 80½”.

Sew together the 3″ x width of fabric outer border strips. Cut into (2) 3″ x 80½” and (2) 3″ x 69½” strips.

Sew a 3″ x 80½” strip to each side of the quilt. Press seams to the outer border.

Sew a 3″ x 69½” strip to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press seams toward the outer border.

Quilt should measure 69½” x 85½”.

Layer with backing and batting. Quilt as desired. Sew the binding strips together. Bind using your favorite method.

This quilt finishes at 69½” x 85½”.

I hope you enjoyed this quilt. I would love to see your finished projects. Send a picture to our Facebook page if you’d like to share. I’ve created a little bonus recipe for you using some of your leftovers.

Sew the cut off triangles from the flying geese together along the bias edge. Use 12 light and 12 outer border print triangles. Proof to 3½”. Make 12 pieced squares.

Press seams on 6 toward the outer border print and the other 6 toward the light.

Sew the pieced squares together in groups of two, using one square with the seam pressed toward the outer border print and one pressed toward the light. Make 6 sets.
