Oh, isn’t this just the sweetest quilt? Believe it or not, it’s so easy it can be finished in one short weekend. If you’re up for the ultimate no-fuss project, simply peel off the strips and sew them in the order straight off the jelly roll. With a few pieces of coordinating fabric mixed in for visual punch, this quilt is the perfect size for laps or wall hangings. You can’t beat the time it takes to turn out such an easy and charming result. That makes for a quilter happy and as everyone knows, happy is the home with the happy quilter! 🙂
First – Create a beautiful strip quilt!
Step One: Pick a Jelly Roll and just start from the first strip and work your way through the jelly roll, don’t worry about putting them in any specific order – the creators of the jelly rolls usually make sure the colors communicate with one another when they do the packaging – so trust them. For this particular quilt – I eliminated any duplicates and will use them later for a coordinating pillow.
Step Two: Start by connecting one strip to another. This is important – Sew your rows in a switch back style. Start your first strip going from Left to Right, then sew the next strip going from Right to left. This trick eliminates the look of the strips having bowing or a subtle curving downward effect.
