Perfect as a last-minute personalized quilt for gifting to your loved ones, this quilt will surely become one of your go-to patterns! Watch the video tutorial below to learn the step by step instructions.
Unroll your jelly roll and select your favorite 34 prints. Next, select two jelly roll strips from your stack and stitch them together with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press it open afterward. Make 17 of this set. Once done, take 11 of these strip sets to make your long piece units. Line your ruler and trim both ends of the unit, then cut a 9″ rectangle unit. You’ll get four long piece units from each strip set, making it a total of 42 pieces.
Make the short piece units from the remaining strip sets. From each strip set, cut seven 5″ rectangles. Make a total of 42 pieces. Now, assemble the block. Take one short piece unit and one fabric B and stitch them together. Press toward the white afterward, then take one long piece unit and add it to the top or bottom of the sewn unit. Stitch with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Make 42 of these.
To make the quilt top, lay 6 blocks in a row, twisting every other block. Make seven rows and sew these rows together to complete the quilt top.
