Summer in the Park - Free Jelly Roll Pattern

Well, it seems like it's been a long time between drinks but really it's only been a fortnight.  Not a very exciting fortnight either - all I have been doing it is cleaning out cupboards and ruthlessly culling the contents of my house.  But that aside, I have managed to achieve a finish and I have written another free pattern for you - I finally finished stitching the binding on my Summer in the Park quilt which I have renamed Summer at the Beach.


I put the last stitches in the binding on Wednesday night and Thursday after kindy we trotted down to Semaphore to photograph the quilt hanging over the jetty (this was really an elaborate ruse for me to get my hands on an ice-cream from my favourite ice-cream parlour on Semaphore Road - but that's just between us).


Here it is hanging over Semaphore jetty with the Palais in the background.  I really loved making this quilt - you just sew strips together like a demon and and then with some clever cutting you make blocks and in no time you have a quilt top sewn together!

This quilt was inspired by the Summer in the Park video tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Company. But as with Briar Rose I didn't want to just start sewing and not know how much fabric I would need or how big a quilt I would get out of one jelly roll, so I have written a pattern for it.  The pattern is again fully supported by CAD diagrams and detailed instructions and you can download it from Google Docs by clicking here or by clicking on the photograph on the right hand side bar.



Mum quilted it for me using the Bountiful Feathers pantograph by Lorien Quilting.  It really suited the feather or wave print in the Salt Air fabrics.


Thanks again to everyone at the Missouri Star Quilt Company for endorsing my pattern.  It is very generous and I really appreciate your support.  You can view the original you tube video here.....

  3. Another winner! What a gorgeous quilt and a lovely setting for the photos. However, I think you ought to hang the quilt on the rail outside the Methodist Church as well - just in case the neighbours feel they are missing out this time! :-)

  16. I love the way you put this together. I always love the look of "diamond-looking" patterns like this, but I'm not a fan of traditional "string quilt" construction methods - so this is perfect. Awesome tutorial. And the colors & quilting on this one are gorgeous.

  17. I am so glad you wrote up this pattern because I saw the video first and thought I'd prefer written instructions:) I've got a jelly roll of Simply Color destined for this pattern now!

  21. Thanks for the easy-to-follow pattern. I saw the MSQC video, but I was reluctant to try to make the quilt with no instructions. Now, I'm ready the start!
