Join Melanie in a class making a Jellyroll Quilt - one that is so easy and quick to make. You will learn how to add mitered borders and attach a perfect binding. All you will need is a jellyroll, border fabrics, backing fabric and batting. You may ask, "What is a Jellyroll?" - it is a group of pre-cut fabric strips measuring 2 1/2" wide and 40" long. We will join these strips together, add our mitered borders and you will have a quilt top! The next step is spray basting the quilt top to the batting and backing and you will add your quilting. Finally, you will learn how to attach a perfect binding. A sample of this quilt is displayed at Robin's Shoppe at 280.
