    The first one I sold in my Etsy shop, the second I made for my nephew's (he's a career Air Force) new baby, and the last was for my DD for Christmas.

    I really like all of these, but sure would like to make the 3rd one. I just love scrappy quilts & this looks like a fast one. Can you tell me how you did it?

    It's from a book called "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott.
    I used one jelly roll. First, sew 4 strips together to make strip sets. Then take two strip sets, place one on top of the other with right sides together matching seams, cut off the end selvedge, and cut those sets into 8 1/2" squares. Very carefully separate the squares, but keeping one set on top of the other, cut diagonally across each 8 1/2" square,to make triangles, always cutting in the same direction. You then sew the triangles into squares, and 4 of these squares make a block. It looks like the blocks are sewn on the diagonal, but they are not. Hope that makes sense.

    That first one and the third one really speak to me. Such a beautiful selection in colors that contrast so well with one another. Wonderful work!

    Explosive blessings, abundance and inspiration to you all!

    I have that book. What is the name of the pattern? I can't quite figure it out. Is it Garden Trellis?

    No, it's Spiral Strips.

    Thank you so very much! BTW, my two children are grown, but we homeschooled them "back in the day" when it was relatively unheard of.

    All of these are beautiful! Each so different. Second really speaks to me because of family military connection.

    The explanation of 3rd is so easy to understand. Now I know what I will do for next quilt.
    Thanks for sharing.
