I purchased a jelly roll of the Gardenvale fabrics by Jen Kingwell for Moda. I thought they would work for the Gypsy Wife quilt but once I got the fabric and tried to put it with other things I had, it was just not working.
Meanwhile I quilted a quilt for a customer that had this pattern - I have no idea what it was called but I realized it was so easy and I could use a jelly roll since the strips were 2" finished. I sewed my
2 1/2" strips together in coordinating pairs, cut them 4 1/2" long and pieced them as shown below.
I used the whole jelly roll. There were some blocks where the sets were not all identical but that just added to the variety to me.
I found an unusual colorful piece of fabric for the border I had on hand
and used some leftover squares and rectangles of the jellyroll
for the back! It is fun to make quilts when you don't know the end results but are pleased when it is finished!
