A collection of more than 40 patterns for animal-themed bed quilts, rugs, mats and wall hangings all made using pre-cut fabric rolls often known as jelly rolls.

Quilters love pre-cut fabric strips because they are quick and easy to use and the fabrics always coordinate. All of the projects in this book are constructed from pre-cut fabric strips that are then sub-cut into 60-degree shapes before being pieced, and the book includes a 60 degree template that can be traced or downloaded for ease.

All of the techniques are explained with detailed step-by-step instructions and comprehensive diagrams. There is also advice about preparing and cutting the strips, the importance of seam allowance, piecing and quilting.

This collection features over 40 patterns for animal-themed quilts, rugs and more - perfect for children's bedrooms and nurseries. In addition to the main animals, there are designs for motifs including paw prints and even fish - ideal for pet bowl mats - and there are instructions for how to mix and match these elements to make personalised variations. All of the projects have an ability rating so you can find your level and build your skills as you go.

The main projects include crib quilts, cuddle throw quilts, quilted wall hangings for decoration, floor rugs and table and pet bowl mats. There are also instructions for how to make themed banners (bunting) using the leftover jelly roll strips, so for each animal there are a variety of different projects to decorate a room.

The techniques for cutting and piecing the fabrics are very comprehensive with step-by-step instructions and diagrams for fast and accurate patchwork. As well as the piecing instructions there are general instructions for how to make a quilt sandwich, quilting techniques, binding and finishing the projects.

Ira explains everything you need to get great results with a professional finish including how to add a non-slip backing to rugs and display strips for the wall hangings so you can hang them without damaging your walls. So in no time you will be making fun animal jelly roll quilts to brighten up your home.
