Jelly Roll of your choice 40 strips 2 x 40 cut into 5 strips = 288 strips = 48 coin stacks = 24 blocks (You will have more 5 strips but these can be used to make a pieced backing or binding, or add to your stash) Fabric B. Black homespun cotton cut into 2 strips (you could use a jelly roll if you dont want to cut strips but you will need 1 Oreo jelly rolls) Cut 78 strips 2 x 12 Cut 52 strips 2 x 15 Fabric for backing and binding Batting Matching thread COMPLETED BLOCK </p> <p>All seams are Do not pre wash fabric, Jelly Roll will fray. Press seam allowances to one side without steam due to the fact that the strips are not pre washed. Use a colour catcher when washing your finished quilt for the first time.</p> <p>INSTRUCTIONS Cut each jelly roll strip into 5 lengths. Trim off the selvedges as you cut the strips. Arrange jelly roll strips in stacks of six strips. Note: You can either do this randomly or be fussy and try to have only one of each fabric in each coin stack.</p> <p>Generated by Foxit PDF Creator Foxit Software http://www.foxitsoftware.com For evaluation only.</p> <p>Sew the coin stack sets together using an accurate seam. Chain piece the stacks in pairs, its much faster (http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art47558.asp) Press seam allowances to one side.</p> <p>You should have 48 coin stacks that measure 12 x 5. Each quilt block will contain 2 coin stacks. Cut each 40 length of black into two 12 lengths and the remainder piece will be used for the long sides of the blocks. Join two coin stacks together with one black strip (12 x 2 ) in the middle to create the center of the block. Press seam allowances to one side.</p> <p>Generated by Foxit PDF Creator Foxit Software http://www.foxitsoftware.com For evaluation only.</p> <p>Sew a black strip on both sides of the block parallel to the center strip. Press seam allowances to one side</p> <p>Your block should now measure 15 x 12. Sew black strip (2 x 15 ) on the remaining two unfinished sides to complete the block. Press seam allowances to one side. The finished block should measure 16 x 15 Complete this process until all the coins stacks are blocked. You need 24 blocks total. Lay blocks out randomly 6 high by 4 wide Hint: Try to chain piece as much as possible to cut down on sewing time. Groups of five to ten work best. Hint: Take a photo of block arrangement and check to see if any blocks stand out or blend in to much and rearrange as necessary Sew the blocks together with an accurate seam to make your quilt top. Press well and make a quilt sandwich. Quilt top, batting, backing</p> <p>Generated by Foxit PDF Creator Foxit Software http://www.foxitsoftware.com For evaluation only.</p> <p>Quilt in the ditch as desired. I quilted around each coin stack and between each coin. Attach binding (and hanging sleeve if desired) with a seam allowance and hand stitch in place (http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_look_now/2008/10/the-ins-andouts-of-bindings.html) Label your quilt</p> <p>Modified tutorial from http://pikkukettuknits.wordpress.com/two-charm-packs-and-a-jelly-roll-quilt-toptutorial/</p>
