I found a fun cherry print jelly roll several years ago, but like so many things, it was put away in a safe place and found again much later. I saw a quilt project I liked and I thought it would be easy to replicate it from the printed page and make it with this jelly roll bundle. I'm not sure how I did it but I got things a little mixed up and while it is similar to the project I saw, it is much different. I have only made one but I wrote notes and took pictures so I could share it with you. Have fun.
First you will need: A full jelly roll, which will give you 84 blocks to make a quilt that is 12 rows with 7 blocks in each row which would measure 56" wide by 96" long without borders.
3 Yards of background fabric for the quilt that measures 56" X 96" without borders. If you want to put borders on the quilt, add the amount you need for the border to your materials.
If you make two equal sized quilts, you can make a quilt that has 7 rows with 6 blocks in each row, which will measure 48" by 56" without borders. I decided to make two quilts with this jelly roll because I didn't like the way all of the fabrics in this jelly roll looked in this quilt. I also really like to make lap quilts.
Cutting: Cut each of your jelly roll strips into (4) 6.5" rectangles and (4) 2.5" squares. Cut your background fabric into (11) 2.5" strips and (11) 6.5" strips.
Sew all of your 2.5" jelly roll squares to your 6.5" background strips and all of your 6.5" rectangles to your 2.5" background strips.
Press seams toward the jelly roll fabric.
Cut each of your strips into 2.5" X 8.5" strips as shown.
Sew each set of 4 matching strips together in this design.
Each block will measure 8.5" X 8.5" square.
Press all of the seams in one direction. It doesn't matter which direction. When you sew your blocks together, you can turn your block whichever way the seams from each set of blocks butt together.
