Sew… What?!!!

Jelly rolls, Layer Cake, Charm packs. Yes, I have a sweet tooth but I also love some patchworking!

Let’s have a look at these different fabric bundle types and what you can do with them.

Jelly Roll:  40 strips – 2 1/2″ x 44″

Jelly Rolls are so versatile and really simple to use. You can make a range of quilts from easy to moderate. The blanket on the left is one of two made from a single jelly roll! You can get the pattern on the right free from the Moda bake shop here.


Charm Pack: 42 squares – 5″ x 5″

The great thing about charm packs is you get a large selection of fabrics in a size commonly used (minimising cutting and measuring) at a very affordable price. We have a lovely selection of charm packs in our shop and you can find this pattern, for free, here.

 

 

 


Layer Cake: 42 squares – 10″ x 10″

cover-750x500Similar to charm packs but larger in size the layer cake comes in collections of complementary fabrics. A useful size that can be halved, quartered or used whole for alternating patchwork. You can get this pattern free here.

 


Fat Quarter Bundle: 5 – 18″ x 22″ / Fat Quarter Single: 1 – 18″ x 22″

Most patchworkers are familiar wiith the fat quarter. It is a meter squared, slightly longer than wider (hence the “fat” bit!). You can buy fat quarters as co-ordinating packs or singles making these particularly versatile. Pictured on the left is a cute zippered bag made from fat quarters in green from our shop and the free pattern for the quilt on the right can be found here.
