Solana Beach Jelly Roll Bali Pop Quilt Pattern

Okay …. I am on vacation! And I had this Kaffe Fassett jelly roll (from Flying Geese Quilt Shop in Tustin) calling my name. So I answered… And made  (finished!) a whole quilt top!

What fun it was to play with these beautiful fabrics. I used this cute block that has been knocking around in my head.

A couple of things about this block. It finishes at 8″ or is 8 1/2″ unfinished. The block contains 8 rectangles, each cut 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. Perfect for a Jelly Roll, Bali Pop or collection of 40 Width of Fabric 2 1/2″ strips. And you could also use a layer cake!  Cut the 10″ squares into 4 ea. 2 1/2″ strips, then cut the strips into 4 1/2″ rectangles… 8 rectangles from each square! The way the block is constructed requires no matching of seams, just a bit of contrast between the two center rectangles and the recs that surround them.

It’s just a joy to put together! Like a day at the beach… Hence the name… Solana Beach!
And once you make a number of the blocks, you get to start playing with setting them together! Way FUN!

So I started thinking… Why should I have all the fun? So I patterned the quilt and I am offering the free PDF as a New Years gift for you!  Try it in two colors or in a whole rainbow!  Add sashing…skip the borders… make it fun!
