Patriotic Jelly Roll Wall Hanging {Quilt Idea}

Here is an idea that popped into my head after seeing this neat flag quilt on Pinterest from A Diary of a Quilter.

Using an assortment of Jelly Roll strips from any fabric collection with a Red, White, and Blue combo of fabrics will lend this wall hanging a wonderful scrappy feel.  While using precuts will make it a fast and easy project to complete.

Finished size would be 35″ by 23″, and it can hang either with the 35″ across the top or by the 23″ side.  Which makes it versatile to fit wherever you want to hang it.  Here are the details as assumed by The Electric Quilt Program.

Since I am planning on using 2.5″ strips for the Red and White Strips, and also for piecing the Stars section, I figure that you will need 4 to 6 – 2.5″ by WOF {width of fabric} strips of Blue; 4 – 2.5″ by WOF strips of Red; and 6 – 2.5″ by WOF strips of White for the top.  For the backing and binding a yard should be sufficient of any blue fabric.  Use the same blue fabric for the binding and the line around the Stars section to add a cohesive feeling to this scrappy project.

Piecing the Red and White strips from 6″ sections of jelly roll strips will add even more scrappy interest to this fun and funky wall hanging.

Here are a few of the Moda fabric collections I think would create a wonderful wall hanging for the upcoming Patriotic holidays.
