Jelly Roll Strips Make This a Breeze to Sew Up!

Color zigzags across this wonderful quilt made up of crayon colored blocks. Notice how each block goes from light to dark in one color.

White strips create contrast and give order to the quilt. The white in many of the colorful prints helps to unify the quilt as well.

Each block is strip pieced from 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips, then cut into 10″ squares. Make the number of blocks you need for the size quilt you want, taking the border into account.

Once the blocks are completed, play with laying them out. You’ll be able to create many overall designs other than the zigzags shown here.

The quilt pictured here, by Marion McClellan from My Quilt Diet, is a king size. Extra blocks were used for the shams. Learn more about how the shams were made here and here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
