Dad's Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was the first project I'd made with jelly roll strip sets - mine came out nice and straight, not bowed. I learned to measure from the center seams to cut the blocks. I'm not sure the jelly rolls with vertical stripes are the best for this pattern, but I'm okay with the way it turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Sew two strips together and the sew the pairs together. Alternate the direction of sewing as you add each strip. I used a fabric pencil to draw an arrow to keep track. Use spray starch or Mary Ellen's Best Press when you press. The quilting is simple diagonal lines made with a walking foot.
