My Farmhouse Quilt - A Throw in Notting Hill! from Busy Hands Quilts

Meet the My Farmhouse quilt pattern!  My Farmhouse is a quick and easy jelly roll quilt pattern.  The pattern is strip pieced and is a great way to get your feet wet if you're new to strip piecing.

You can make the Throw size with 30 strips - less than one jelly roll!  That's great news since most jelly rolls have a few fabrics that could be left out since they blend in too much with the background, whether that be a light fabric or a dark fabric.
