For this quilt you will need

-one jelly roll of Riley Blake Scoot

-1 1/2 yards of white cotton solid

-1 yard of binding fabric of your choice

-2 yards of backing

-Crib size batting

Ok now that we got all the things you will need out of the way lets get started.

-First thing first take all your jelly roll strips and cut them into 8 inch pieces.

-than cut your white fabric into 3 inch buy 36 strips

Thats it for cutting for now, crazy easy huh! I knew you could do it!

Now brush off that dust on your sewing machine and lets begin….

You can arrange your strips into any order you would like I match colors to colors so it would look cohesive to the eye when finished. What every you like, the goal of this is….Just have fun.

Sort your strips into 25 piles of four and sew four strips to equal one block, than continue this process for a total of 25 finished blocks. Than I know I hate this part to…press your sea seams.photo 4

Next step your rows.

You will now make 5 rows of 5 with the blocks you just made to look like this. Everyone still with me. Great believe it or not were almost done.

Now grab those white strips we cut and get ready..

Sew one of the white right sides together to both the top and bottom of on strip blocks you created.Now sew a strip to the bottom of your white strip…and continue till all 5 strip segments  are attached with a white strip in between and bottom…

Now Your quilt top is done, take a breath…Iron those seems, and lets finish this up.

Take out that batting and backing trim both sou your top and your batting are all square and pin that thing like crazy…

Than quilt to your desired preference, I choose to stay withing the ditch because of how busy the quilt is all ready.

One more step, cut your binding fabric into 2.5″ strips and create your bias tape.

Wow your done. That was so much fun!!! Congrats and I hope your boy or in my case boys love it!!!Thanks for visting

Busy, Busy Going Ons

Wow, what a week. Husband home on leave an trying to secretly work on his birthday quilt, which has been pretty tricky. Although I pieced together all the stars tonight and the blocks are going together. Anyways, the fabric store Chasing Unicorns on Etsy and here is nearing fruition and are first batches of fabric are soon to arrive. Gosh, I am so excited!!! New beginnings are great and I am ready to dive right in. There;s so much to do and by next week I will post a tutorial for all you lovely folks on baby crib amazingness. Which is totally exciting, because the teething princess is definitely ready to move into her new room. I finished my son’s quilt today which was very well received, and like always he loves his homemade goods. Nothing in the world is better than seeing him get excited and happy over a new blanket and his real appreciation. I LOVE IT!!! So without further ado here’s his awesome chevron quilt, created with the Moda comma collection. Image                                                              Image
