Wall Hanging

Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • basic rotary cutting
  • working with templates

Pattern Description:

For some years, fabric manufacturers have offered pre-cut fabric strips, also known as Jelly Rolls.
One of these tempting rolls fell into our hands last time we went fabric hunting. Precut fabric strips can be used
for many patterns, e. g. Log Cabins, Rail Fence blocks or for
making a Lasagna quilt which has become very popular in Europe recently. Here, we want to present an interesting alternative use of Jelly Rolls: An abstract geometric "ColourPlay" design for a triptych wallhanging solely made
with precut fabric strips and inspired by the famous Bauhaus artists and architects.

  • Size of each panel: ca. 12 x 40 (ca. 30 cm x 100 cm)


  • At least 24 (twenty-four) 2 1/2 (6.3 cm) wide fabric strips, 44 (110 cm) long, cut from different fabrics
  • Backing fabric: 3 panels, ca. 16 x 44 (ca. 40 cm x 110 cm)
  • Batting: 3 panels, ca. 16 x 44 (ca. 40 cm x 110 cm)
