Red Fort of Agra Quilt Using a Precut

All right, I know, another Red Fort of Agra quilt. But seriously guys, this pattern is so fun and easy to make. It's a modern, block based quilt pattern perfect for all those fun fabrics you have lying around. It's especially perfect for any jelly rolls you want to use up, in fact that's my favorite way to make this quilt.

When I first saw Stellar by Rashida Coleman-Hales from Ruby Star Society I fell in love. The bright colors and fun patterns are so cute. I especially love the pinks, yellows and blues. The sunshines and stars reminded me of my two littlest girls. So I bought a jelly roll of this line.

Jelly rolls are a great way to get some of all the fabric in a large line of fabric. A Jelly Roll is a precut which is 2 1/2 inches wide x the width of the fabric. Many patterns are written for Jelly Rolls or 2 1/2 inch precuts. Not only is this cheaper than buying a fat quarter bundle of a line of fabric, it's also easier because some of the cutting is already done for you. So it's a win, win!

 

I then chose the alternate fabric in my quilt by starting with some of the Add It Up fabric by Ruby Star Society. It's a blender fabric with colors that match their different lines of fabric. I then had my color matching helpers choose some other fabrics at the local fabric store that would match.

Didn't my blocks turn out cute!

I sewed this gal up and sent it off the Kaitlyn from Knot and Thread Designs to quilt. I didn't really have any ideas for the design I wanted. She asked if I wanted to try a new design and of course I said yes.

 I don't know if they are rainbows, but that is what I think of the design she quilted. It goes perfectly with the quilt's bright colors. I am so pleased with how this version of Red Fort of Agra turned out. It's so cheery and fun and it reminds me of my little girls.

Try this pattern out for yourself!
