Gooseberry Scrappy Trip Quilt


Update: here's a link to all the blog posts I've done with all the different version and instruction.


Here are some specifics about the "pattern" I used to make this quilt, which is really an adaptation of a tutorial.



Materials:
  • 1 jelly roll, or 40 2.5" WOF strips of print fabric (I used "Gooseberry" by Lella Boutique for Moda)
  • 1 jelly roll white fabric, or 40 2.5" strips from yardage (I used Kona Snow) 

Method:

       I followed the tutorial for the "tube method" found here on the Quiltville blog, but I altered it slightly. Instead of using 16" strips for a 6 by 6 block, cut the jelly strips in half (approx. 21") and alternate 4 print strips and 4 white strips for each block, yielding an 8 by 8 block. The blocks will be 16" instead of 12".

You'll need to make 10 blocks that start with a print strip in the top corner, and 10 that start with a white strip, otherwise your blocks won't connect properly. When you lay them out, rotate the ones that start with a print 90 degrees, and alternate them with the ones that start with white.

*I got the idea to make the blocks bigger, thus maximizing the jelly strips, from @shutterbugmal on Instagram. She made a gorgeous quilt using two Hello Darling jelly rolls. I opted to calm things down a bit by using just one jelly roll and alternating it with white.

This will give you 20 blocks, laid out in a 4 by 5 grid, for a 64" by 80" quilt. 


If there are any more questions, feel free to leave a comment! 

*UPDATE: My Insta friend Cindy at Hyacinth Quilt Designs has improved upon this version with a clever pressing tip! Go check it out here. You'll want to see her version :)
