Jelly Roll Quilt


I picked up a lovely Batiks Jelly roll at the Scarborough shop while I was ‘just passing’.  I know its a 130 mile round trip from where I live, but I usually have other reasons for being in the area!  Honest the shop is like an Quilters fantasy land and  fantastic to visit in person but not useable online.

The Jelly roll was in my stash for months while I pondered what to do with it.  Inspitation struck when I saw the You Tube video by MissouriQuiltCo and just loved the simplicity of making blocks from a Jelly roll.  Pop over and have a look. It was really easy and the effect gives a double pattern of diamond shapes and sort of a pin wheel effect as well.  Although the trimming down of the blocks resulted in a bit of waste, I did manage to get a double bed quilt top out of it with the addition of some white sashing around the edge.

Next step is to back and quilt it.  But first I have others to make.
