Two-bits by a quarter!

Summersville jelly roll....uh....wrapping!
I got the jelly roll from my friends at Quilt Taffy.
I cut all the strips in half and starting sewing them in strip sets of 5.  Mix 'em up!
After pressing, cross-cut them 2 1/2".
You'll have piles of them! 
Sew them back together again in 5 rows of 5.
Now you have a 25-patch block.
Make 25 of these...
I set mine with 2 1/2" sashing and border.
It finishes at 62" x 62".
I cross-hatched the entire quilt - level #3.
I absolutely adore this backing.
It's flannel and the colors are perfection!
I found it at Sages Creek Quilt Co. in Pocatello, Idaho.

 I had 3 little strips left over so I added them to my binding.

 I. Love. This. Quilt.

  2. The backing is amazing! And I love that you added the extra strips to the binging :) I might have to try that with my next quilt.

  3. I love it too! What color is the sashing? It looks great against all the colors in the blocks.

    1. The sashing is a light gray. It was about the only solid that would work with all of them....and I'm using a LOT of gray lately = it's the new cream!

  5. I love your quilt too!! What a great pattern design. Thanks for sharing it with us.
    You can never go wrong with Quilt Taffy fabrics! I hopped over to their shop and spied a couple of jelly rolls that would be super cute in this pattern : London 2.5 inch Design Roll strips fabric Dena Designs and Santa's Workshop 2.5 inch Jelly Roll strips fabric by Riley Blake (super cute for a Christmas quilt!).
