This was made using the Reunion line by Sweetwater for Moda. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it online before it was released. I ended up using a groupon to purchase the jelly roll at a quilt shop in Utah.
I made this small cheat sheet, in case you want to make one of your own using a jelly roll.
(Make sure to check that it has 40 strips or more, some of them come with less)
I prefer using precut fabrics, it seriously cuts the time on making a quilt in half.
Plus, cutting is my least favorite part.
You will need:
3 yards fabric for the backing (I used a solid grey)
1/2 yard for the binding
1 jelly roll
And there you have it.
It's a lap quilt size, it will live on the edge of our bed, or on a chair for snuggling,
if we ever get one in our bedroom.
I quilted it with a loose diagonal squiggly line, but I love how wrinkly it turned out.
If you want to quilt but are not sure where to start, just go for it. If you can stitch a semi-straight line, you can make a quilt. My favorite resource for quilting videos is Missouri Star Quilt Co.
They have the best, most comprehensive collection of videos that I have found.
The construction on my craft room is *almost* finished. I'm looking forward to having that space back again.
