Jelly Roll Week – Strips and Stars


Hi, welcome to Jelly Roll Week. It’s Jenny again, and I’ve got a really fun idea for you for a Jelly Roll. This was really an interesting quilt. Take a look at this, see those stars? That’s all made with strips! Isn’t that amazing! Let me show you how, come on over to the table. Just so you can reference later this is the pattern we’ve used. It’s called Stars Aligned and it’s all done with strips. It was just an amazing, different way of thinking for me!

This is available on the website, so you can check that out. The block is actually, you start here with a 4” square and you use your strips and you dog ear the corners, a 6”, and a 4” strip. As you start to put them together, you can see how it makes a star. See, if we’re missing that fourth block, but if we had a whole one there’d be a darling little star there. Anyway it’s really a cute way to make stars. A great way to make a quilt, and we hope you have a wonderful week at Jelly Roll Week here at Missouri Star Quilt Company, and don’t forget to check out his pattern it’s really cute, really fun! Happy quilting at Missouri Star!

    What is the finished size for this block?
    Do you need to add seam allowances to the 4″ and 6″ strips as well as the 4″ square?
    I ended up with an 11 1/2 in block.
