The Big Leap - Jelly Roll sew along for February
It's a Leap Year and what better way to celebrate than to make a quick to piece quilt to commemorate the occasion? I'm calling this quilt The Big Leap.
It is a variation of the pattern called Triple Irish Chain.
Follow along each week as I demonstrate time saving methods for chain piecing, cutting, pressing & sewing your BIG blocks and quilt together.
To make this 82" x 82" quilt you will need:
1 Jelly roll fabric bundle and 5 1/2 yards of contrasting/solid background fabric.
Want to make a smaller quilt?? This version is 56" x 56". To make this variation you will need a bit more than half a jelly roll bundle and 3 1/2 yards of a background fabric.
SCHEDULE and Specifics.... Each Sunday during the month of February I will post a new set of instructions and a Show & Tell link up.
Look for these on February 7, 14, 21 and 28.
The goal is to have our quilt tops completed by February 29th - LEAP DAY! I look forward to sharing The Big Leap with you!
every quilt tells a story.....
