As a quilter, there’s nothing better than finding a pattern that’s incredibly simple to make and doesn’t take much time.
The Coin Quilt is all of those things, and the end result is super cute. With just a few simple steps, your quilt top can be completely finished in just a couple of hours.
Here’s how you do it.
What You Need:
- Jelly roll strips
- Sewing Needle
- Sewing Machine
- Fabric cutter
Cut your jelly roll strips into half and sew one strip to another horizontally.
As you go along, try to create some variety by alternating dark and light colored strips until you reach desired length.
For best results, groups of 4 strips are recommended so it will be easier when you press the strip set along the seam.
Fold your strip set. Using the iron, you can start pressing along the seams (top and bottom). Take extra care when pressing the strip set to avoid any wrinkles.
Looking at the bottom, open the folded strip set revealing the front side. Lightly rub along the seam with your iron.
Measure 8 1/2” on the strip set and start sub-cutting your strip into two using your fabric cutter.
Once you have completed a couple more strip sets, you can start alternating and sewing the coin rows together before the sashing is added. Make these a 1/4″ seam.
