    Book Jelly Roll Inspirations

    Hello
    I am thinking about making a quilt called Be My Valentine from the book Jelly Roll Inspirations. I am wondering if anyone is familiar with this pattern. I am a newbie to quilting and I have to cut out templates for this quilt. This scares me. I might not cut the templates straight then wind up with a nasty quilt. I like this pattern because it is made to use a jelly roll, which I have already bought. Is there someplace that I could buy the templates already made? They look like a 1/2 hexagon shape but are odd sizes. 12 1/2" , 8 1/2" etc. I am posting a pix and hope it is ok to do that so you know what I mean.

    I think I would try an easier pattern. I have quilted about 46 or so years. I don't like hard patterns. Getting lazy I suppose. If you are new you might need to get more experience. I haven't used templates for years.

    If you posted a photo of the actual end product we might be able to help you make simpler cuts.

    And here's one that looks a little easier. You could still use your jelly roll. http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/prod...ts/traditional

    And there is a free pattern for that heart from www.forestquilting.com called braided heart.

    From the templates it looks like you could just cut the peices at length by 2 1/2 inches. Then add a 2 1/2 inch square of background and sew on the diagonal on the corners you would have cut. I hope this makes sence.

    Agree ... haven't done this pattern but don't see WHY they use templates ?? Simpler and quicker to do with the half-square corner sewing method - but not sure it's really suited for a beginner, either way ...
