There are some quilt patterns that are perfect for beginners and this is one of them. It is called Pickety Sticks. It is also perfect for those popular Jelly Rolls. This quilt belongs to the owner of one of my local quilt shops, Wendy, at Among Friends. She taught it as a class last week. I’ll bet her students are anxious to get their finished.
You know, I’ve got 6 locally owned quilt shops within driving distance. What a blessing! Each shop is completely unique but the one thing they all have in common is fantastic staff. I can tell you that each one of them absolutely loves turning a newbie onto quilting. And jelly rolls quilts are perfect for newbies.
If you are looking for a great jelly roll quilt pattern, this is it! The pattern itself is inside the book, On A Roll. There are some other great Jelly Roll patterns in the book. The author, Heather Mulder Peterson, also has a great blog.
I used the Spin Pantograph on this quilt to give it an all over, edge to edge pattern that adds youthful zest and movement to this fun quilt!
