Jelly Roll Fence Rail

I decided to make a Fence Rail quilt with this jelly roll. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with jelly rolls. They are convenient, but do you follow the peaks or valleys to determine the edge? I never know. So I like to trim them with my die cutter.

See the extra on this? Not all jelly rolls are this bad, but I’m glad I trimmed this one. Now they will match with the white strips I cut.

It takes two print and two plain strips to make one of these 16 inch blocks.

It’s a simple design, but one I’ve wanted to make for a while. It will only take 20 blocks for a 64 by 80 inch lap quilt.

Have a great day!
