Shopping for fabrics

I had fun shopping at Fat Quarter Shop and picking out the perfect quilt fabrics for this quilt.

I used the Wildflower Boutique 2½” strips by Heather Peterson, White Bella cotton, one of the fabrics from the Wildflower Boutique for the binding and my favorite white Aurifil thread.

The blocks are very easy to make, it took no time at all to make all of the blocks. The quilt fabrics in the Wildflower Boutique collection are beautiful, you’ll want to grab the 2½ inch jelly roll before they are gone!

My Jelly Belly Bars quilt will measure 54½” x 60″ which makes a perfect lap quilt size. You’ll also find a crib quilt, twin size and a queen size quilt in the pattern. If you decide to make the twin or queen size quilt, you will need 2 jelly rolls. Yardage information can be found in the pattern, did I mention that it is free?

Bullwinkle the moose didn’t mind having his picture taken with the quilt, Mr. Mickey…..not so much. Be sure to check me out on Instagram where I’ll be sharing more photos of the Jelly Belly Bars quilt and of course Mr. Mickey.

    Hello from Colorado my Quilter friend made this quilt for her granddaughter teacher !!💜 I love this show case pattern 😄 I’m excited I looked you up and saw your blog I’m going to make my next quilt this way!!!!🥰😘💜🤗 Thanks for sharing it !!!

  2. I love your stories, Connie. And I can truly relate (especially about squats and kneeling on the floor. I gave up taking baths for fear of getting stuck forever! LOL Getting older has many challenges. I am shocked at what frigs are costing these days, but think you will love the one you chose; I think it’s exactly what I have and love it. Mine has been working well for 12-15 years now. Hope it sticks with us until the end! Your dogs are so cute, enjoy those stories, too. Wish I could suggest something that gets the older dog to want to go out. Our last dog hated the cold here in OR, too. She knew she got a treat every time she did her business and we made it a quick trip. Keep up the good work, Connie!

  3. New to quilting.. is there a good way to cut the solid center using yardage instead of “Jolly Bars” ?
    Thank you😍

    1. Sure, just cut your fabric into 5-inch strips and then sub-cut to 10 inch rectangles. You’ll get 4 from each strip.

  4. I got very excited about this pattern because I have jelly rolls that need a plan. Thanks for sharing!!
