“Jennifer’s Love” quilt is like a burst of fresh romance. It is bright, new and hard to resist giving a hug and cuddle. This quilt is also very forgiving; mistakes are hard to make and any imperfections add to the relaxed charm of the design. The center squares are made of half-square triangles in a unique shortcut method that gives a finished quilt square after the initial piecing, no further quilting needed. Even better, the quilt is reversible, the back as beautiful as the front!
“Jennifer’s Love” is a quilt as you go project. That means that you assemble all the quilt layers in sections, quilt each section and then sew the sections together. The entire quilt is finished in less time than it takes just to make a traditional quilt top. To make it even faster and give a frilly edge to the quilt, there is no binding, just a clipped edge.
To give added texture to the quilt, the seams are sewn inside out and clipped to give a chenille style edge to the inside seams. The seams are designed to fray to the stitches, giving a relaxed, unaffected look to the quilt.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
¾ yard (.69m) pink floral print for the center blocks front and back.(I used “Circa” by Jennifer Paganelli for Free Spirit Fabric Company for all the print fabric on the front of the quilt)
¾ yard (.69m) blue floral print for the center blocks front and back.
1 and 1/8 yard (1.03m) white fabric for center blocks front and back.
1 ¼ yard (1.14m) complementary stripe print fabric for wide borders on the front .
1 ¼ yards (1.14m) complementary stripe print fabric for wide borders on the back.
1 piece Warm and White batting (or similar white cotton batting) 44x95 inches (112cmx 243cm) or twin size. OR you can use white cotton flannel fabric for the middle batting layer. If you choose flannel, you will need 2 ¾ yards (2.51m) and it should be at least 42 inches (107cm) wide.
