Scrumptious Scraps Quilt-Along - Change for a Jelly Roll!

Hi, all!

Welcome back, to the final Sunday for the Scrumptious Scraps Quilt-Along!  From the comments and emails I've been getting from you all, this year's quilts have been a big success - many of you have made your own versions or been inspired to add them to your own bucket lists.  I love to hear that!  Our final guest post is this week, from my good friend Emily of Em's Scrap Bag. If you haven't seen her blog before, you are missing a world of wonderful scrappy quilting advice and inspiration!  And she makes the most beautiful artisan soaps - their names sound good enough to eat!  And best of all, she is the brains, hands, and heart behind Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo, one of this year's charities for Hands2Help.  So now, from the multi-talented Emily, comes her tutorial for Change for a Jelly Roll.  And remember, hang around until the end, when I'll announce the winner of last week's giveaway and you can leave a comment for this week's scrappy giveaway!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

I love this time of year and Sarah's Hands 2 Help. I am so thankful for her and you, who read her blog. Your generosity never ceases to amaze me as boxes upon boxes of quilts arrive at my home full of love for those fighting cancer. I could in no way help so many if it were not for this outpouring of quilts. So it is with great pleasure I present this scrap friendly tutorial.


My strip bin could barely be contained so I chose to design a coin quilt.  I call it Change for a Jelly Roll.  If you click on the pictures it will enlarge them so you can better see the measurements. For this quilt you will need 2 1/2 yards background, leftover bits of jellyroll strips to equal about 620", and a bunch of random strips. (precise I know!)

From your background fabric cut:

Nine 3.5" x width of fabric strips. Sew these end to end and sub cut into six 3.5" x 60.5" strips.

Three 11.5" x width of fabric strips. Sub cut these into two 4.5" x 11.5" rectangles, four 5.5" x 11.5" rectangles, and twenty 3.5" x 11.5" rectangles.

Sew your jellyroll pieces end to end along the 2.5" side until you have a strip at least 605 inches long. Sub cut this into ten 60.5" strips.

Sew your random strips (any width) into strata that measure 12" wide.


Make as many of these as you need to create six 6.5" x 11.5" strata units, nine 4.5" x 11.5" strata units, four 3.5" x 11.5" strata units and four 2.5" x 11.5" strata units.


Following the diagram below, sew strata units between background units make two of these rows. (Row type A)


 Following the diagram below, sew strata units between background units make one of these rows. (Row type B)


 Sew 5 of the jellyroll strip units together. Make two of these.


 Sew the strata row type B between your jellyroll rows.  Then sew one row type A  to the top and the other to the bottom.


And there you have it - a quick, cheerful quilt that hopefully made a dent in your scrap bin!


Thank you Sarah for allowing me to contribute. Thank you in advance to everyone who donates a quilt to Quilty Hugs. They are truly appreciated.

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Thanks for the great inspiration AND tutorial, Emily!  Wow wow wow!  Are you all as excited by this pattern as I am?  I don't know about you, but my string bucket is running over, and this looks like it could be just the thing to put a BIG dent in it!  

And now for the winner of last week's scrap package giveaway...


Congratulations, Shirley!  I'll be contacting you by email to get your snail mail address!

And now, one final scrap package giveaway to end our Scrumptious Scraps Quilt-Along!  Just leave a comment below with some bloggy love for Emily and her tutorial, and let me know if you want to be included in the giveaway.  Be sure to leave your email address  so I can reach you if you win!  I've responded to all the comments left so far, so if you haven't received a response so far it's a good bet you're a no-replyblogger!

And here's an important reminder - next Sunday this year's Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge begins!  Be sure to drop by - and hopefully sign up to participate - because there will be a giveaway (not scraps this time!) for one of our early participants!

Hugs!

Sarah

  31. So bright and cheerful! After finally retiring and moving closer to daughter and grandbaby, I thought I'd have more time to quilt--but I'm busier than ever! At least I'm getting the sewing room cleared and organized so I can begin. This looks like a good pattern to get my feet wet again! And since I'm on a fixed income now, I have put my self on a fabric diet. No more buying anything but batting until I make a dent in all the fabric I have. Keyword: buying. No reason I can't win fabric! lol Thanks for the pattern and the opportunity! Glad I found your blog!
