Heart Quilt Pattern by Quilting in the Rain


heart quilt tutorial by quilting in the rain


Hi All! This is Jera from Quilting In The Rain and I am thrilled to be posting on Ucreate for the first time! A little bit about myself...

  • I started quilting 5 years ago and immediately got the quilting-bug.
  • I work full time (in the biotech industry), and started my blog one year ago as an outlet to my creative side.
  • I quickly learned that I love teaching others to quilt, hence all of my tutorials. Stop by my blog for simple, unique and clear tutorials! :)
  • I am a self described fabric addict - gorgeous fabrics are what inspire me to quilt!
  • My dream is to open a fabric shop - my online shop will launch this Fall!
  • And lastly, I'm a mommy-to-be! I'm 10 weeks along!

Thanks so much for checking out my tutorial. As mentioned above, I love simple and this tutorial is only 3 steps…

 Materials (57" x 50.5" quilt top):

  • 1 jelly roll (you will have plenty of leftover strips!)
  • 1 solid white jelly roll
  • 3 yards backing

Step 1 - Trim the strips from both the colored and solid white jelly roll to the exact measurements represented in the cutting diagram below. (Note: the measurements below are the exact cutting measurements of the unfinished pieces). Since a jelly roll strip is 2.5"x44" long, in some cases you will need to sew a couple strips together and then trim it to get the measurements shown below.

Step 2 - Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew all the pieces in each row together, and then sew all rows together. Step 3 - Add the borders. Sew enough strips together until you have these measurements:
  1. Left and right borders - 46.5" long. Sew these on first.
  2. Top and bottom borders - 57" long.

Baste and quilt. Sew together six leftover strips to create the binding. A binding tutorial can be found here.
