FREE DOWNLOAD: Smart Cookie Quilt in Flower Pot Fabric
My cousin Stephanie has a gift for planning beautiful parties. I have drooled over many a charcuterie board she has thrown together. There is an art to such a thing; a sense of order while making it appear effortless. This quilt is an ode to her and those who make magic for others. The placement of the blocks gives an illusion of overlapping stars – and it easier than it looks. In fact, the hardest part will be deciding how scrappy to go… Maximize the variety with a Jelly Roll – or simplify with fat quarters. No matter what you decide, this design is sure to impress – no magic wand required.excerpt from the book, Jelly Filled – 18 Quilts from 2-1/2″ Quilts

This is the “Smart Cookie” Jelly Roll quilt pattern and was written for my book, Jelly Filled – 18 Quilts from 2-1/2″ Strips. It’s a fun twist on a traditional log cabin design. (My obsession with log cabin blocks runs rampant here.) Thanks to the publisher, they have given me permission to give you a FREE PDF download of the Smart Cookie jelly roll quilt pattern. (Thanks, C&T!)
The full mockup of Smart Cookie below will give you an idea of my Flower Pot jelly roll strip placement.
