Simple Strips Quilt Along Over at We All Sew

Want to make a quick and easy Jelly Roll quilt? Then be sure to join me for my Simple Strips Quilt Along which just launched over on the BERNINA blog at We All Sew.

Super Simple Strips Quilt Along

This quilt along will work a little differently than my previous quilt alongs, since I’m sharing it over at BERNINA, but it will be just as fun! I will be sharing 5 weeks of step-by-step tutorials showing you how to make a complete quilt from start to finish. I am proud to be a BERNINA ambassador and I do all of my piecing and quilting on my B770 QE.

Super Simple Strips – Piecing in Progress on the BERNINA 770 Quilter’s Edition

But of course, you can use your favorite machine to make this quilt! I’m going to show you how to do some very easy decorative machine quilting, plus we’ll even finish it by machine. 🙂

To get started pick up a jelly roll of your favorite fabric. Either choose a Jelly Roll that has half light/half dark strips; or grab a smaller bundle in a nice solid background color to go with your regular sized roll (you need a total of 40 strips for the quilt).

I chose to go with half a Jelly Roll of Valley by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda, plus a Jelly Roll Junior of Bella Solids in Ivory.

The complete supply list and quilt along schedule are posted at We All Sew – so please follow along each week, then share your progress in my Facebook group Quilt with Christa, or on instagram, #simplestripsqal.

    Hello, thank you for this quilt-along. I had a look at the instructions. I was wondering if I could sew long strips together (a print and a background) before sub-cutting them into 6 1/2″ units. Am off to check my stash for suitable fabric! Love the jelly roll you chose.

    I was so excited to get your second book upon my return yesterday from San Francisco. I have so many wonderful projects in process but I will definitely be joining in on this Quilt Along.
