It’s amazing what a difference just 1/2″ will make.
Valerie shows two quilts made with the same pattern – 9 patch and rail. For the original quilt she used just 2″ strips and it ended up as a cot size quilt. The second quilt was constructed from strips 2 ½” wide which is closer to a single quilt size. That means you could use your jelly roll!
If you aren’t sure how to upscale a block you would find it helpful to watch Valerie’s Your First Sampler Quilt series. You can watch the intro here or click here to find the whole First Sampler Quilt series.
