Tutorial – Jellyroll Friendly Rainbow Quilt
One of our linky party friends, Connie Kresin Campbell, has a website called Freemotion by the River. Connie recently shared a tutorial called Rainbow Quilt that I thought was so cute. The quilt measures 48″ x 64″ when complete.
Jellyroll Friendly Rainbow Quilt
As you can see by the photo, this quilt is aptly named. I just love all the colors in this quilt. Connie used Snack Pack Marblehead Global Brights by Ro Gregg. She supplemented the jellyroll with a fat quarter of white fabric for the center of each block. Those are 4.5″ squares.
Here is a shot of one block. You select three strips and sew them together. Then you cut the strip into 10.5″ segments. Each block uses those four segments and one 4.5″ white square. Check out Connie’s specific instructions for sewing these together. It looks more complicated than it is. ~smile~
Once you have all the blocks made, you lay them out in a pleasing manner. Connie mentioned that you could stop with just six blocks and have a baby quilt that finishes at 32″ x 48″. And you would have two of them! What?!!! Hmmm.
The best part of Connie’s tutorial is that she shared a photo of her grandchildren on the quilt. How adorable are they?!! That quilt looks so cute and comfy with them enjoying it. ~smile~
Here the only supplies you need for the 48″ x 64″ quilt:
- 1 – Snack Pack Marblehead Global Brights or any jellyroll of your choice
- 1 fat quarter for the center section sub-cut to 12 – 4 ½” x 4 ½” squares
- 3 yards for backing and binding
