Free Pattern Friday!

I'm taking a break from the Shortcuts CD quilts and wanted to offer a pattern that was here in 2015. This is a repost about a quilt made in 2006! This presupposes you have a jelly roll (HA! Who am I kidding?)

So, even though today is Friday the 13th, this will give you a bit of good luck and hopefully put a smile on your face.

Digging through my archives of hundreds (yes, hundreds) of patterns  I came across this quilt made in 2006 using one of the very first Jelly Roll bundles. Moda Fabrics made these jelly rolls so tasty! This was featured in one of the magazines I was editor of and my challenge was to come up with a quilt that could be created using a single jelly roll and a companion background fabric.

Here's the Spring Fling jelly roll:
Moda jelly roll bundle of 40 strips
Here's a picture of the 2-1/2" strips getting cut for the project:


Here's a picture of the Logs and Mortar quilt:

The 6 page pattern pdf has all the steps pictured as we did them for the magazine. It was one of our tutorials. It includes the yardages, the cutting instructions, etc. This is NOT to be copied and distributed (yes, I don't really know if you do this, but I'm asking that you honor my request.) You may share this link with your friends and if everyone has their own copy, have a sewing party!

Any group of forty 2-1/2" strips will get you this quilt, so don't think you need to copy my colors. This quilt has since been gifted or I would take a better photo! But, like I said: there are lots of photos in the pattern.

Enjoy!

  2. Hi Debby! I 'may' have just one or two jelly rolls in my stash. This is a fun way to use one up! Thank you for sharing the pattern. The last photo isn't showing for some reason - just an FYI. Happy Friday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Always nice to hear from you. Now those jelly rolls in your stash can pay you back for harboring them for a few years. And that’s such a great work you are doing for the women’s shelter! God bless you for doing that.

      Happy sewing,
      Debby

    1. Yes, it's easy to cut a bunch of 2-1/2" strips and get to work. Let the fabric do all the talking.

    1. That's an oldie (13 years ago), but I still love those colors.
