Eydie A’s Jelly Quilt

Mom and I are so excited to bring you our 2nd recipe for Moda Bake Shop! This quilt “Eydie A’s” is designed and named in Grandpa’s (mom’s dad) memory. This lovely quilt uses a jelly roll and both a dark and a light print to set off the scrappy blocks. It is made using Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs…the perfect line for Moda Bake Shop.

1 jelly roll Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs
2 5/8 yards tan sprig on cream for background triangles
3 2/3 yards cream flower on blue for sashing, border, and binding
94 x 108 inches batting
7 1/2 yards backing

Using the Jelly Roll strips piece together in sets of 2 for a total of 20 sets. Do not press yet.

Then piece the sets of 2 together for 10 sets of 4. Now press each strip set so that the seams are going to same way (all to the left or all to the right).

Layout and cross cut them into 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch combination strips for a total of 168 combination strips.

Piece combination strips together into groups of 2. Be sure that seams are pressed opposite of each other when pairing them up.

Piece groups of 2 together for a total of 42–16-patch blocks. Set these aside.

Cut 14–6 3/4 inch strips from the background.

Cut these strips into 84–6 3/4 inch squares. Cut each square in half diagonally once.

Piece the triangles to the blocks.

Piece the triangles opposite and press.

Then piece the remaining triangles. Press.

From the blue… cut 24–3 inch strips for sashing. Using 12 strips, cut 35–3 x 11 3/4 inch sashing strips.
Piece the remaining strips into 6–3 x 86 inch strips

Cut 9–4 inch strips for the borders from the blue and cut 1 strip in half. Piece together 2–4 x 86 inch strips for top and bottom borders. Piece together 2–4 x 106 inch strips for side borders

Cut 9–2 1/4 inch strips for binding from the blue and piece strips end to end.

Layout the quilt as follows: 6 x 7 layout with 86 inch strips running from side to side and the 11 3/4 inch strips running up and down between blocks. Piece together rows of blocks then piece rows to blue sashing strip. Piece borders to top and bottom first then sides.

Layer quilt with backing and batting; quilt as desired. I quilted Eydie A’s with a freestyle overlapping meander with white thread.

Trim quilt and stitch binding down.
Then roll the binding over and top stitch binding down (or hand stitch binding down on back).
