Materials (57″ x 50.5″ quilt top):
- 1 jelly roll (you will have plenty of leftover strips!)
- 1 solid white jelly roll
- 3 yards backing
Step 1 – Trim the strips from both the colored and solid white jelly roll to the exact measurements represented in the cutting diagram below. (Note: the measurements below are the exact cutting measurements of the unfinished pieces). Since a jelly roll strip is 2.5″x44″ long, in some cases you will need to sew a couple strips together and then trim it to get the measurements shown below.
Step 2 – Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew all the pieces in each row together, and then sew all rows together.
Step 3 – Add the borders. Sew enough strips together until you have these measurements:
- Left and right borders – 46.5″ long. Sew these on first.
- Top and bottom borders – 57″ long.
Baste and quilt. Sew together six leftover strips to create the binding. A binding tutorial can be found here.

Thank you for sharing your design. I have just completed my top using reds for the heart. The quilt is intended to be a gift for my husband's cardiac surgeon. My husband had open heart surgery in November 2012 and a quilt seemed the best way for me to try to show my gratitude.
Hi Libby, thanks for the comment. 🙂 You're very welcome for the pattern! What a meaningful and heartfelt gift (no pun intended). I'm sure he'll love it!
I just finished this quilt! I'm a brand new quilter so I made lots of mistakes, but I love how it turned out: http://www.dejongdreamhouse.com/2013/04/heart-quilt-for-marissa.html

Thank you for this great pattern. I have done over 150 community service quilts since lockdown began. This will be a wonderful design for my donations to children’s organizations. I might experiment with wider strips to enlarge for my throw size I donate to the chemo treatment centers.
love this! I’m new to this. Can you tell me what it would take for this pattern to make for a queen size bed?
