I’ve learned to not judge how successful a quilt is until it’s finished so I’ll hold off judgement on this one for now. However, I am loving constructing these blocks from Jelly Roll strips! So much quicker and easier than sewing them like a traditional log cabin block.
You can find the instructions for cutting the block from Jelly Roll Strips here. The one thing I don’t like about the instructions is she says to press the seams open. With this pattern, you can press to the dark, or away from the light strip and your seams should nestle. I’m not against pressing open when I’m twisting and turning blocks every which way but my preference is always to have seams nestled because things just line up better I think.
Sometimes I worry about the size of my stash but I love it when I can pull the perfect fabric right off my shelf … isn’t this one going to make a great binding for this Happy Block quilt?!
