Christmas in July
Have a jelly roll you don’t know what to do with?
Our July Super Saturday Sew In will use a jelly roll to make a Christmas tree quilt.
Called Jingle Pop Trees, this pattern was free last year from Hoffman Fabric. Your teacher is Leeanna Walker, and I made this quilt last year for the annual Altrusa Christmas auction. It sold for $300, so someone liked it.
I’ll provide the pattern, you provide everything else.
Here’s what you need:
Power strip/extension cord
Basic sewing stuff
Rotary mat, ruler, cutter, scissors
Template plastic, marker
1 jelly roll, or you can cut your own 2 ½ inch strips. You won’t use a full jelly roll 40) strips), but the more strips you have, the more fun you will have choosing which tree goes where. Cut your strips before class and you’ll be cooking with Crisco.
1 ½ yards white/silver fabric for background
1 ⅛ yards black/silver for outer border and binding
1 yard scarlet/silver for inner border
Size: 48 by 64 inches
Be brave! Choose your own color palette. Maybe you want fall trees or spring trees. Let your imagination run.
Note: This pattern uses templates. However, after I had finished, I realized I could have cut them using a ruler with 60 degree marks. Duh! They’re equilateral triangles. So bring rulers with those marks if you want.
See Amy Rollins or Leeanna Walker for additional information.
