First of all Happy Labor Day!
I've made the best of this long weekend and busted out two quilts! Well, one completed one which I'll blog about later on and then a quilt top, this one, the Jelly Roll Jam II!
Fat Quarter Shop has a wonderful video and FREE pattern of this fun little quilt. The hardest part will be choosing the jelly roll.
I decided on Pedal Pushers by Lauren and Jessi Jung. I love their fabric lines and thought the navy in it would really make it pop. Also the fact that I ordered a TON of jelly rolls of this collection and needed to clear some room (that was my excuse to my husband anyway who hates when I use our shop fabric). :)
I don't know about you but I really enjoy the experience of unrolling one of these. I have to order fabric so many months ahead I forget what they look like by the time they arrive.
This quilt was very quick to make. Maybe a few hours? It's hard to tell because I get interrupted so much but it really didn't take long at all. If you don't have a little person to give this to you may as well get 2 jelly rolls because this is the small one and only covers up Emma who is 18 months old.
I definitely plan on making a larger version someday for myself when I find the right fabric collection.
I'll be doing a jelly roll post (or series) soon with all the tutorials and books using 2.5 inch strips that I know of. I use this precut a lot and often get the comment on Instagram or FB of people not knowing what to do with them. I have a lot of books but not a lot of online patterns or free tutorials so if anyone knows any please let me know so I can add to my list.
Thanks for visiting :)
Have a great week!
