Good morning! We are anxious to share this new quilt pattern with you, it’s hot off the press! Sandy and I decided to call this quilt “Stepping Stones” because it reminds us of when we were back on the farm, heading out to get the cows for milking. We had to cross the creek pictured below. When you’re a little girl, crossing something like this seems daunting! We would always step on the stones to try and keep our feet dry. This is a fast and easy quilt created with a colorful 40 piece jelly roll and 11 solid white jelly roll strips to make the colors pop. Here’s a close up view.

We’ll also be posting this pattern to one of our favorite quilting websites, FaveQuilts. This is a great website for lots of free quilting patterns, tutorials and inspiration.

Good morning ladies! Oooh, a nice jelly roll quilt. I love making quilts that use up most of a jelly roll. I’m going to PIN this for the future as I have a few jelly rolls to use up. Nice job and thanks for the pattern. ~smile~ Roseanne
Good morning, Roseanne! So glad you like this one, I think we all have a “few” jelly rolls to use up! Sandy and I have one we keep passing back and forth, it’s almost like a “Tag! You’re it!” game.
What a fun pattern, and a quick one, too! I have fond memories of many country hikes that involved stepping stones across creeks (and wet feet too).
Isn’t it funny to look back on those times? In our minds this creek was like a river and it was a real challenge to not slip into the water. I still attempt to step on stones to keep my feet dry. Sometimes I win and sometime I lose.
Very cool! Thank you!
So glad you like it!
I like this quilt. Nice..
Thanks! I really like how it turned out. I was going to give it away, but it is now sitting proudly on my couch!
Thank you for a great quilt pattern. I’m going to use a Christmas jelly roll. Can’t wait to get started!
So glad to hear you are making a Christmas quilt from this pattern! It’s really easy to change the fabric and the theme. I think that’s why we like jelly rolls so much.
Wonderful quilt pattern!
Thank you, Tierney!
Cindy — I love these colors! As I recall, when we crossed that creek we were also using the stones to avoid the cow patties — Good times!
Haha! Did I push you into one? I seem to have selective memory loss!
I love this quilt AND the picture of the stream! So beautiful! Love our hill!! I would love to make this quilt!! I enjoy your collaborations 🙂
Hi Neighbor! So glad you like this one! We’ve been thinking on this one for awhile and it suddenly just came together. I think I might try to make a Halloween or a fall version. Then of course, there’s a Christmas and Valentine’s version! Sandy took the picture of the stream, I think I’m going to use it as a wallpaper photo for my phone. It’s so peaceful!
I love your pattern – thanks for the free download. The fabrics you used are so perfect. Can you tell me what fabric line they are from? I’m pretty sure I have a few jelly rolls tucked away…gonna have to go see what I can find. 🙂
Unfortunately, I can’t find the jellyroll label AND I didn’t save the selvages. I tend to favor the modern prints and brighter colors, but I think whatever you choose, you just can’t lose…hey, that rhymes!
I love your pattern – thanks for the free download. The fabrics in your quilt are perfect. Can you tell me what fabric line they are from? I know I have a few jelly rolls tucked away – gonna have to go see what I can find. 🙂
I love the story behind this quilt. The quilt is so cheerful and bright.
Thanks, Chela! These fabrics were fun to work with because they are just happy colors!
