1600 Quilt

The 1600 quilt was very, very popular about 5 years ago and we made dozens of them. This quilt is made from a jelly roll and all you have to do is look online for 1600 quilt.  I cannot give you all the directions here.  It is very easy and very fast.  Basically you are going to sew all 40 jelly roll strips end to end which will total approximately 1600 inches and that is how the quilt got its name.  Many shops had races to make these quilt tops.  Send me a picture of your 1600 quilt!  This is not a Country Threads original idea – I wish I could give credit to the designer because it’s an ingenious idea!  Let me know what you think about it.

    Back to the walk in wardrobe closet…am packing, sharing with AM Vet’s and taking care of my post cataract surgery eye drops; breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime….what an easy way to remember those…cataract surgery is so painless.
    Waiting for my absentee ballot…..my AZ classmate received her absentee ballot already.

    I, too, love your 1600. I made a Christmas one with the little square between each strip. I back it with red snowflake flannel. I am going to make another one:) One lady at our retreats makes one each time!!

    Is the 9 patch teeny or does it go between a couple of strips? Thanks.

    So cute! Love the polka dots! I’ve made some of these for charity quilts because they are fast and they always turn out cute. Nice job!

    Mary, we just started making these this summer and called them Jelly Roll Quilt. I think the quilter saw it on Missouri Quilt. Ours had a square between each strip. Do you have the measurements of the 9 patch that was between the strips. Also, do you have a pic? I bet it was beautiful. Thanks for posting. Paula in KY

    I saw a really cute one made from old jeans, with a red square between each strip. It was backed with a red plaid flannel. Would be great for snuggling under, on the couch, on a long winters nap.

    Love, love, love it. Now I know what I’m going to do with. My peppered cottons for a dear friend. I’ll applique’ bird silloutes on it.

    Mary I love you said the 1600 Quilt was popular 5 years ago, my friends and I just started making them this past year. It’s been so much fun! I did not think I would like it but I did, can’t wait to make more. The one pictured is adorable! I wish we lived closer. I just gave away 7 beautiful mature house plants. I just have too many. They live on my deck in summer then go to work for winter where we have a waterfall and pond in the front lobby. The postman was having a hard time making his way thru the jungle so I posted on my plants on community’s Fb page.

      Moe – I just love those houseplants but they do get big, don’t they? Somebody got lucky! Enjoy those 1600 quilts! One of my favorites had a 9 patch block between each strip.
