New Pattern: Sweetly Done Jelly Roll Quilt Pattern

Sweetly Done is a super fun quilt to make up - beginner friendly or a super quick finish for those times when "quick" is essential.

All you need to make your own version of Sweetly Done is a jelly roll (or cut your own 2 1/2" strips) and just a bit of background fabric. My sample quilt is made with this"cinnamon" roll of Cinnamon and Cream by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics.

The Cinnamon and Cream fabric line captures the light of autumn perfectly - warm, cozy, bright with sunshine. It was so lovely to work with this fabric line from Fig Tree and Company/Moda Fabrics during one of my favorite times of year, autumn.

After choosing from the five sizes available in this pattern, let the fun begin. I love mixing fabrics around until I'm pleased with the combinations. 


Stitch the strips together and slice 'em up.


Add in the background fabric (isn't this eyelet print from Cinnamon & Cream darling?) and voila! you have a fresh new quilt top with very little seam matching so the rows go together easy peasy.


For the quilting I used a wavy quilting stitch that's on my sewing machine. The family loves it. I guess it makes it extra cuddly : )

Usually I just use a solid white for background (solids are a little cheaper than prints ; ), but for my sample quilt of Sweetly Done I got some of the neutral eyelet print that is part of the Cinnamon and Cream fabric line. I love it! 

Backing is a flannel fabric by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics. I believe it is part of the Autumn Gatherings fabric line. So, so soft! I like the depth of richness that it adds to the quilt.

This throw quilt (55" x 72" size) is already washed and in use and a new favorite.
I like this size - long enough to cover the toes but not overly wide to crowd the sofa/chair.

So glad I pushed to finish this quilt. The colors bring so much warmth and coziness to our home. 
We shall definitely enjoy it for a couple of weeks before switching to winter/Christmas.

It's written up for five sizes and can be made with precut jelly roll strips or 2 1/2" strips cut from yardage.

Happy quilting, everyone : )


  1. I am wondering how long you make the strips……and the squares? Many thsnks
