i ♥ simple quilts
i was going through old files today and realized i hadn't shown you a few older quilts that i made. yes, they're simple, but that doesn't mean that i like them any less. not sure why i forgot about them. the one above sold almost right away, and the one below was a custom order, so maybe that's why.
this bottom one follows the concept of a 'jelly roll race' quilt. Not sure what that is? just google it and you'll find tutorials on it. it's a very simple way of making a strip quilt. of course i changed a few things. i didn't use actual jelly rolls (a roll of precut strips from Moda) but rather cut strips from my own yardage.
i think you can go pretty eclectic with your fabric choices on a pattern like this. it looks really good when it's not too matchy matchy.
i also cut my strips wider than 2.5", more like 3.5"or 4". I also sewed the strips together straight rather than on the diagonal, just because I prefer that look.
All in all, a very quick and effective way to make a quilt!
