It’s Easy Enough for Beginners!
Choose a beautiful jelly roll (pack of 2 1/2″ strips) and pair it with a background for this stunning quilt. Batiks in deep colors are especially striking, although it will be fun to play with other combinations.
Emphasize the zig zag design by choosing low-contrast strips, such as batiks. More contrasty prints will be interesting too, but could produce zig zags that seem less solid.
Of course, the quilt will be wonderful in whatever colors you wish to emphasize. The background can be white, as shown here, a soft hue or even black or charcoal. Choose what works best with your jelly roll.
The finished quilt, designed by Freemotion by the River, is 51″ x 63″.
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!
