    Hidden Wells Quilt Pattern

    Is it possible to make the Hidden Wells pattern with a jelly roll or do you need the width variation to make it more interesting? I want to make a quilt for my son from Benartex's Leaf Haven came upon an old thread for Hidden Wells and thought it might work. Would appreciate input from someone who has made this pattern.

    I think it would be find with a jelly roll. I would do the light to dark for the variation more than the width of the strips anyways.... Here is a link for the pattern that I found when I googled the pattern. http://www.reddawn.net/quilt/hwells.htm

    I think it would work too, I love that pattern
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I've made that pattern(only the lady I took the class from called it "What a surprise!") Can't find the pattern, but at the time I didn't think that I liked the quilt when I finished it....now I love it. I have it on my bed and I marvel that I actually made it. I would think that a jelly roll would work great.

    It would work...would give a different look than making the quilt with varying size strips...it was always a suprise how the quilt turned out...fun pattern!

    First time I've seen this pattern but I like it. I think a jelly roll would work fine as long as you get the color variations. Good luck with your quilt jannm; and thank you coyotequilts for the link.

    I taught a class where a gal used different fabrics in her hidden wells quilt. It came out beautifully, but the design that you usually see was different. If you haved found fabrics you love, go for it. I had some problems understanding the reddawn.net sight, so after I made my first quilt, I wrote a tutorial on my blog. You might want to take a peek at it and see if it is of any help to you! Just a warning it's long with lots of photos.

    WOW I love this quilt! Thank you both for the links. I think I can pull it off between the two tutes. Hugs and smiles and good luck all.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    If a bunch of us start making this, maybe we could start a thread for it!

    One of my very first quilts was a jelly roll that I purchased at JoAnns. I think it was called "blueberry". Not knowing any better, I just stitched the strips together and quilted it to a soft flannel backing. I love it for snuggling up on the couch!
