I’m so excited to share this little project I made this past month. It’s a simple little scrappy baby quilt made from part of a Moda Jelly Roll in the Baby Jane collection – one of my current favorite collections. I’ve wanted to make a ‘low-volume’ quilt for sometime and these prints were perfect for this project.
The pattern I used for this quilt is a brand new free-download pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop called the Jelly Roll Jam. Using this pattern you can create two quick and easy, scrappy baby quilts, each measuring 36″ x 36″. Or you could easily modify the pattern to make a bigger quilt using more of the Jelly Roll strips.
To make it even cooler, there is also a free 20 minute video tutorial that will show you how to quickly assemble this project.
I loved making this little quilt – it came together SO quickly – easily in one afternoon. I love simple scrappy designs, and this one showed off the prints perfectly. The aqua, gold, and red is one of my latest favorite color combos. My quilt was quilted by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting.
I made one modification on my quilt and that was to add a 2″ border on all four sides to make a 40″ x 40″ quilt. I just used 4 more of the jelly roll strips for the border. I used another 4 strips for my binding as well. I’m so smitten with how it turned out. Is it weird to keep a baby quilt for myself?
