Eenie -

Won - LOL - ;))

I have two of this jelly roll - Meredith - by Robert Kaufman -

The strips have PINKED edges -

Which are NOT my favorite -

But the colors are pretty -

And I think they'll make a pretty Upstairs/Downstairs -

Missouri Star Quilt Company - calls it - Crossing Paths - HERE -
but I never remember that name until I go to add the link - LOL -

It's one of my favorite - no-brainer patterns -

I'm going to tweak it to use one jelly roll - 40 strips -

Since there are two each of 20 different prints -

And I need sets of 5 -

It was easy enough to peel them off 8 at a time -

And make 5 piles -

The top two in each stack will make the first two strata -

The next two in each stack will be the next two strata -

The next two -

And the last two -

I'm playing with the first sets of strata -

And the rest are waiting their turn -

If my MATH is correct -

Each 5-strip strata should give me three 10" blocks -

So -

One jelly roll - 40 strips -
Strata in sets of 5 = 8 strata -
8 strata x 3 blocks/strata = 24 blocks total -
4 x 6 layout -
Approximately 40" x 60" -

Or I could use both jelly rolls - 80 strips -
Strata in sets of 5 = 16 strata -
16 strata x 3 blocks/strata = 48 blocks total -
6 x 8 layout -
Approximately 60" x 80" -

Sometimes when I have too many things going on around here -

I need some no-brainer sewing -

And this should be pretty much a no-brainer -

And a pretty one at that - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

These are pretty fabrics. I look forward to seeing it progress as it becomes strata and then blocks.

That is a pretty group of fabrics and a great pattern too.

I vote 60x80 because the fabric is pretty and soothing.
