Jelly turnover quilt

Jelly turnover quilt

The last week I finished one of the tops that we were assigned to make at our local quilt group for charity purposes. We made 4 different tops using the same pattern from Moda Bake Shop: The Jelly Turnover Quilt. This is my version of the quilt!The pattern was really easy and the one different thing we did on the piecing/cutting part was that instead of cutting the squares, for the half square triangles, at 5” and then correct the finished HST, we cut our squares at 4” 7/8 inches so that the final HST di not need any correction. Really much more easier that way, but you have to try piecing with precision. Hopefully this week the quilt will also be binded, and I could show you the finished one for next week…

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

Hi! This is Shannon with Modern Tradition Quilts, who designed the Jelly Turnover quilt for Moda Bake Shop. I just adore how cute your quilt turned out and love the color selection you chose. The softer pinks and blues are fabulous! I too agree with your 4 7/8″ correction, in fact, I drafted it that way, but Moda has you use pre-cut 5″ squares which is why the pattern online was written to trim later. I’m glad you like it and either way works out well. Thanks for sharing your project, I am flattered that a pattern I wrote worked out well for you and your quilting group.
