Need help figuring out this quilt
1 Attachment(s)
I saved the picture of this quilt from the QB a while ago. I want to make one for my new granddaughter but cant figure it out. I want it large enough for a crib quilt which I believe should be 50" by 53". It is making my head hurt. Do you think the strips are cut 2.5" or 3"?

If the person who made this quilt has the name of the pattern that would be great.
Thank you so much for your help.

i'd say the strips are 3", because once you deduct the 1/4" seam allowance , then ad borders , you'd have your 50" wide , just let the strips going cross wise take up the slack of the rest of the inches needed to get you to 50, hope this helps you

I 'll bet that the strips are cut 2.5" wide. Figuring the layout is easy by counting the strips in each section. There are 7 strips in the upper right quadrant and five in the upper left, so if the strips are 2.5" wide the upper left quadrant is 10x14". There are 17 strips in the lower right quadrant, so the width is probably 34". That makes the lower left 34x10", which is the same as the quad above it. The yellow ribbon looks to be 4" wide (cut at 4.5") and the border appears to be about the same width as all of the strips or perhaps just a little narrower, perhaps 1.5", but you can make it whatever you want. I think that this quilt probably measures 46x56". You can adjust the measurements to suit your needs by adding or subtracting strips, or changing the width of the strips, the border, or even the yellow ribbon. Have fun!!

Thank you so much!

Looks like a beautiful way to use a jelly roll, with 4" or 5" strips added to make the yellow sashings. If that's the case, you can just add as many strips as you need to make the size you want. Thanks for posting the photo - I missed it the first time around too.

Pretty quilt, and looks realy easy to make.

susiequilt 01-07-2013 02:32 PM

That is so sweet for a little girl. I did see the original post but can't remember who made that.

quiltsRfun 01-07-2013 02:49 PM

They look like 2.5 from a jelly roll but you could probably do it with any width strips.

Dordee 01-07-2013 04:27 PM

Tucsonquilter-I think you have started something-I think this quilt is in my future:thumbup:

stacey65 01-07-2013 05:16 PM

Love it.. thanks for sharing looks like we have a few going to be made and me to...lol good luck ladies

Sewfine 01-07-2013 05:36 PM

That is beautifiul. Can't help on the math.

DogHouseMom 01-07-2013 05:49 PM

I do remember seeing this pretty quilt when it was first posted, cannot remember for the life of me who made it. I *think* though that it was her original design ... not a pattern.

It is very pretty!

Crqltr 01-07-2013 05:56 PM

I think it was first posted by quiltingmommy , I was searching for it a couple of days ago and that's the link someone sent me, I want to make it also. If it is her design she should publish a pattern!

mucky 01-07-2013 06:05 PM

If you figure out please post.

QUILTNMO 01-07-2013 06:19 PM

it turned out very nice like the colors!!!!

susiequilt 01-07-2013 07:07 PM

This is the original post I think:
Sounds like quiltingmomma saw a picture on pinterest so she probably didn't design it.

I did one sort of like that, and it required jelly roll strips, so it was 2.5 inches. I think it was supposed to look like a gift with ribbons, but I just put a flower on it.

tucsonquilter 01-08-2013 04:38 PM

OH that is very pretty Willferg. Thank you for sharing.

2manyhobbies 01-09-2013 04:33 AM

So adorable. Should be easy, and the recipient will love it.

NanaCindyLou 01-09-2013 04:44 AM

such a lovely quilt...does anyone think it would work for a boy - in boy colors & maybe with a sailboat, soccer ball, something instead of the flower?

susiequilt 01-09-2013 05:37 AM

That one is lovey also!

Yes, I think it would work with boy colors and any boy applique!

Amythyst02 01-09-2013 07:30 AM

These are just adorable...

solstice3 01-09-2013 09:34 AM

very cute quilt. it shouldn't be that difficult to do. If all else fails, use a jelly roll and adjust the number of stips to accommodate the size you want

Auntie Em 01-09-2013 12:31 PM

I just saved this picture....love the quilt....just need my first great grand child!!! LOL!!!

nstitches4u 01-09-2013 03:44 PM

That is just adorable!

They look like 21/2 in strips. Probably a jelly roll. Looks like a fun and easy quilt to make.

earthwalker 01-10-2013 12:21 AM

They are both great quilts....think this might have started something:). I was only musing the other day about some strips I have put aside.....hmmmm...:)

BMP 01-10-2013 04:04 AM

I just think this is darling, we have our first grandbaby due in Juy and I have been looking at patterns to make a few baby quilts once we find out what gender of the baby will be. I would really like to make this one for a girl !!!

skowron5 01-10-2013 05:08 AM

I think the yellow strip looks bigger than the others which I think are 2.5 inch.

BMP 01-10-2013 05:35 AM

I would change the yellow, to me it is too much..but it does look like 2 strips for that portion

Blinkokr 01-11-2013 03:44 AM

Really cute as can be and thank you for sharing
Have a Blessed day

judylg 01-11-2013 05:53 AM

So pretty! What a great way to put a quilt together! Looks like it would be fun to do!

imnywoman 01-11-2013 05:30 PM

Ooh, it's so pretty!! Looks fairly simple to put together too!! Good luck.

nannyrick 01-11-2013 06:06 PM

Wish I could help you but that is one adorable baby quilt.

Tink's Mom 01-12-2013 02:24 AM

I just bookmarked this pattern...I have a jelly roll that is crying out to be used. This will look perfect with it. I think the 50" by 53" is a bit big for a crib...I want to say 40" X 50" would be oversized enough....But, we each have our own preferances....

QuiltnNan 03-30-2016 06:52 AM

the pattern is by Artichoke Collection and called All Wrapped Up.

QM 03-30-2016 07:55 AM

This is a very sweet design. Please don't get hung up on exact details. Made with either 2.5 or 3" strips, it would be lovely. Since I don't know the size of the original, it would be impossible to know exactly, but I suspect it was designed for jelly rolls. The same thing could be made in blues and greens for a boy, with a star, a puppy, or other applique at the crossing. When I make crib quilts, I go with 41x54, or thereabouts so that the backing does not need to be pieced and because I prefer to work with Thermore batting. Of course, if you are not worried about piecing segments, you could do this as 4 QAYG units, adding the applique later.

Cotton Mama 03-30-2016 08:39 AM

It is now on my to-do list too.

Watson 03-30-2016 09:21 AM

Thanks, QuiltnNan for running down the designer of this quilt for me!


Quilter 65 03-30-2016 11:01 AM

Beautiful quilt. Good luck figuring out the math part. I think you could make it up to fit about any width, but suspect it was a jelly roll.
