MYSTERY QUILT

Supplies and Cutting Instructions

approx 62” X 78”. 

***Don’t let the cutting directions scare you.  It is NOT hard!!! Really!

 

Supplies:

          1 jelly roll-36 strips will be used, select the ones with the best contrast to your background fabric

          Background—3/4 yard-needs to contrast your jelly roll strips

          First Border—5/8 yard

          Second Border—2 yards

          Binding—2/3 yard

          Backing—4 yards

 

Getting started:

          Open your jelly roll and select 36 of your 2 ½” strips.  Select 3 sets of 2 matching strips and pin together to use in rows 1, 17, and 33.  (These 3 rows take longer strips than the others and need 2 strips instead of just 1.)  Lay out your strips in a pleasing arrangement of rows (one below the next) from 1 to 33.  Before picking up the strips, number the strips from 1 to 33.  Then number baggies from 1 to 33.  Be sure to treat the pairs of strips for rows 1, 17 and 33 as 1 row.  We recommend a baggie for each row, as you will soon be cutting the rows into smaller pieces and they need to stay together.  **To be extra sure, take a photo of your numbered rows as you have them laid out.

Cutting:

          Background—Cut (8) 2 ½” strips.  Subcut into (63) 2 ½” X 5” rectangles. 

          First Border—Cut (7) 5” X WOF strips.

          Second Border—Cut (7) 5” X WOF strips.

          Binding—Cut (7) 2 ½” or 2 ¾” strips.
