I think this would be perfect for my grandson. He is a Michigan State fan and wants a quilt using team fabric. I think I could substitute green MI State fabric for the red and then use black and white fabric for the rest. How much fabric will I need to make a twin size quilt? I'm a new quilter and have made a few table runners. This will be my first quilt project. Thanks!

Hi Donna,

By my calculations, you would need about 4.5 yards of fabric total for a twin size (not counting backing). Divide that by how many colors you want to use and you have it! Would love to see what you come up with!

I would like to make this in a queen size quilt for my son, my question is would I just add more squares to make it that size?

Here are my calculations for a Queen Size: 88 x 100- 7 blocks wide x 8 blocks tall plus sashing. Approximately 5 black and white jelly rolls and 4 red jelly rolls. (This does not include backing fabric).

Hope that helps!

Well so much for beginners pattern. I screwed mine up. You have to get the strips in the same direction or they don't go together correctly. I guess I'll rip apart the three squares I screwed up and hope I can still use most of the pieces and have enough material left to get it right.

what if i want to make it into a king size? then hom much fabric would i have to get?

suzy6281 on craftsy.com
suzy6281  September 5, 2014
Flag as inappropriate

If I was going to make it larger, I would multiply the original numbers by 3 for a full size quilt. If the pattern calls for (2) of that square, then Id make (6). There would be six additional squares that Id have to make in order to get the 42 squares needed for full size. I would just pick my favorites.
This could translate to 4x for Queen, and 5x for King, with a few extra that you would have to make up.
Hope that helps. I try not to go too big with these beginners patterns in order to give those that are new to quilting a project that doesnt overwhelm.

The original pattern used 5 different black prints, 5 different white prints, and 10 different red prints, and calls for 22" of each print. Multiply that by 5 and you should have enough for a king size.


Hope that helps!

I would like to use this pattern to make a blue quilt. I have looked at the directions for cutting the strips instead of using the jelly rolls, but cannot determine how many different fabrics I will need to get and how much of each fabric. I would like to make a queen size quilt. Thanks for any help you can provide.

The square themselves are laid out in no particular order. I just moved them around until I found a look that I liked. The only thing to keep in mind is that you want to alternate light background and dark background. (If that makes sense). If I was going to make it larger, I would multiply the original numbers by 3 for a full size quilt. If the pattern calls for (2) of that square, then Id make (6). There would be six additional squares that Id have to make in order to get the 42 squares needed for full size. I would just pick my favorites.
This could translate to 4x for Queen, and 5x for King, with a few extra that you would have to make up.
Hope that helps. I try not to go too big with these beginners patterns in order to give those that are new to quilting a project that doesnt overwhelm.

The original pattern used 5 different black prints, 5 different white prints, and 10 different red prints, and calls for 22" of each print. Multiply that by 4 and you should have enough for a queen size.

Or in the case of say a three color queen size- you would need about 4-3/4 yards of each of the three colors.

Hope that helps!

Hi! By my calculations, you would need a total of 4 of the black and white jelly rolls and 4 of the red jelly rolls to come up with a queen sized quilt measuring 88 x 100. That would be (7 ea.) 12 blocks across, and (8 ea.) 12 blocks down, with a 2 sashing all around. (That is a total of 56 ea. 12 squares).

If you decide to go even larger, 8 blocks across x 9 blocks down = 72 blocks, or 6 of the black and white jelly rolls and 6 of the red jelly rolls.

Hi Vermont! As the designer of the other pattern in question, I just want to point out that my pattern originally ran in the Winter issue of Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, which was on newsstands beginning January 2013. I just wanted to put that out there so people realize I did not copy any other design when designing my pattern. Nor do I think that this designer copied me eitherthis is a traditional block that anyone can put their own twist on! I have no problem with another similar pattern being out there for free, especially since this quilt is at a different size than mine and uses jelly rolls instead of fat quarters or fat eighths, as mine does. So I hope you'll extend me the same courtesy for my own pattern. Thanks! : )

suzy6281 on craftsy.com
suzy6281  July 14, 2013

Yes, the pattern is a traditional tessellating quilt block, which you can find on many different quilt block sites. My twist was the use of color to create a windmill design. Also, the use of jelly rolls in multiples of black and white prints, creates a unique display. :)

I don't normally post comments, but for this quilt I just had to.

I loved the look of this quilt so much I purchased the whole kit from
Discount Sewing Supply as I wanted mine to look just like the picture. I'm a beginner, and I made the quilt top in 2 days. All I have to do now is add the backing and bind it. I could not believe how EASY it was to make. The pattern looks really complicated, but it was rated for a beginner and believe me, it was just that. This was my first time using jelly rolls. I'm HOOKED..

Thank you Suzy6281. Your instructions are clear and simple to follow. I really appreciated all of the pictures you included in the pattern. I could tell at a glance if I was making a mistake. I'm now going to make your Summer Jewels quilt as well.
