Tutorial – Regatta Quilt – Jelly Roll Friendly
I get an daily email from Pinterest with suggestions for topics and/or Pins they think I might like. Recently, I received a suggestion to check out the Regatta quilt by Daniela at Block M Quilts. I did check it out, as I thought it was very share-worthy. Daniela finished this quilt back in 2014 and it is her most pinned and most popular post. I can see why! It is another jelly roll friendly quilt.
Jelly Roll Regatta Quilt
The simplicity of this quilt speaks for itself. The color gradation from dark to light to medium blue is just so calming and pleasing to the eye. The white adds a crispness – there’s nothing like blue and white. Just beautiful yet easy for any quilter, even beginners. It would be stunning in just one color or scrappy – it’s up to you.
I like the secondary pattern the little white squares make. The finished size is 57″ x 74″ which is a very generous size. That would actually be perfect for a Youth size bed! She uses 19 different jelly roll strips, 2 of each color. You can see where this could easily be sized done to use only 1 jelly roll strip of 19 different colors or patterns. I always look for ways to make cute baby quilts. ~smile~

Of special note is Daniela’s choice for quilting. She did a wavy line which is easily achieved from a domestic sewing machine. No need to long-arm quilt this one. I have used this stitch a few times myself, like in the Finding Nemo quilt. Daniela also includes a blank coloring chart to fill in your own colors if you would like to audition different palates. What do you think? Is this a pattern you would like to make yourself? Have I peeked your interest?
