Jelly Squares

52 x 62

This is my version of this Jelly Square Quilt.  I added another row and column and took off the borders to fit the fabric I had on hand.  The border came off mainly because every fabric in this quilt looked terrible as a border and distracted from the soft look I was going for.

You can strip piece this quilt, but I didn't.  I wasn't sure of my color choices so I didn't want to commit myself by strip sewing them.  The orange squares were in my scrap bin already cut.  I had just enough for this quilt!  The colored squares are 2.5 and 1.5.  The sashing and border is 2.5. Easy quilt to put together.

Can you believe this is my first time binding with a stripe?  At least I think it is.  It matches nicely with the soft backing fabric and I just love it!  I used the backing fabric to pull colors for the front.  Easy quilt to change the size just by adding another row or two.  Changing the background color would also make a huge difference on the look of this quilt.  I might have to make one with a dark background!


  1. That is such a sweet pattern! Good choices on the border and striped binding! I love bindings that give pop!

  2. I love the soft look of this quilt. The striped binding and backing tie it all together so well.

  3. I love your quilt! Excellent choice and I can totally see why, to not border it. It would make a great wheelchair quilt ;-) seems to be my pet project these days! You reminded me to link up at NTT!

  4. Shannon this quilt is just beautiful. The fabrics are so soft looking. What a great finish!
