A Beautiful Project for Leftover Jelly Roll Strips!
Softly colored prints, a neutral background and an intriguing quilt block combine in a perfectly lovely quilt. Small-scale prints give it a bit of a retro feel.
Stronger colors will result in a more modern personality, especially in varying fabric styles. Whatever you choose, be sure to provide enough contrast so that the intriguing block design pops out from the background.
Speed construction by using 2 1/2″ strips. This is a great project for using up leftovers from your stash, giving the quilt a scrappy look. Or, coordinate around a particular color theme or fabric line.
The finished quilt, by Jean Nolte, is 71″ x 88″.
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!
