Friends, I needed a reason to smile this week, so I started sewing a new version of my Ridiculously Easy Jelly Roll Quilt. Can I interest you in joining me in an easy, breezy quilt-along?
The plan is simple: Start when you want, finish when you want, sew at the speed that works for you!
I will be posting any in-progress shots on my Instagram account with the hashtag #ridiculouslyeasyjellyrollquilt. If you want to keep tabs on this project, that’s the place to be.
Everyone is a winner in this quilt-along, and the prize is the satisfaction of making something beautiful with your own two hands. HA!
To get started on your own Ridiculously Easy Jelly Roll Quilt, download the free pattern here.
Beginner quilters, this is truly an easy pattern. As long as you know how to work your sewing machine, can read a pattern, and can sew a consistent quarter-inch seam, you’re good to go. And there is a small army of experienced quilters on Instagram who would love to answer any questions for you along the way.
By the way, I am sewing my project with a jelly roll of Basic Grey’s Gypsy Soul, pictured above, which I purchased at Green Fairy Quilts. Judi and Clint have a bunch of Moda precuts at good prices, and I received my fabric in just over a week. (I know many online retailers are behind in filling orders, so I was pleased with this turnaround and shipment from Utah to Massachusetts.)
I have so many quilts in the queue right now: Two just arrived at the longarmer, another is ready for quilting on my domestic, and yet another just needs to be bound. So of course, I started a new project. If you have one that’s crossed the finish line recently, good for you! Share it below, in this week’s linky.
