KID QUILT #6  - FREEDOM                                                                                                                                                       For this quilt, I used this collection called "Freedom" by Moda.  There were 42 strips, with only a few repeats.  Each strip measured 2.5" x 42". For the border and binding, I used yardage from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store.


The pattern for this quilt called "Jelly Roll Race 1600" and you can find the tutorial on the Missouri Star Quilting Company youtube channel. The backing is a light brown flannel and was purchased from JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts Store.  

The finished size of the quilt is 52" x 72".

I used Warm and White batting, also purchased from JoAnn.  The quilting pattern is a meandering star and it came with my new Quilt Magician.  The fabric is so detailed that I needed a quilting design that was simple. The thread I used was YLI variegated red, beige, and blue cotton.

Here are some photos of the quilt.
Here is a better view of the fabrics and what they look like when they are first sewn end to end, which is the first step of the pattern.

Here is the finished quilt.
