So find your favorite jelly roll and let's get sewing! Need a jelly roll? Click here and pick one up at our on-line store.
For this project you will need:
1 Jelly roll
cotton thread (we used 50wt)
rotary cutter and mat
8 1/2 x 16 quilting ruler
iron and ironing board
First you'll need to unroll your fabric and mix it up. If you're a little OCD, which I think really we all are, get over it this quilt is supposed to be random! So mix up your fabrics and then choose your first two strips. You will be sewing these together at an angle like you would for binding.
So place your strips like so and then get your ruler. You need to place your ruler on the strips so that your 45 degree line is on the strip that is vertical. This will give you a line corner to corner to mark and sew on.
Once you have your ruler lined up, mark your line with a pencil and pin if you need to. Then take the strips to your machine and sew just a smidgen to the right of the line. Then cut your 1/4 inch seam.
Next you'll take these strips and press your seam open.
Now that you have one long strip, you cut off the first 18 inches and you just fold in half, right sides together and start sewing.
Once you get to the end, you trim off the fold and press.
Then go again and press. Repeat this process until you're done!
Here's another one done by one of our customers in the Halloween fabrics!
So there it is! Easy as pie! Happy stitching and may your bobbins always be full!
