Simple Jelly Roll baby quilt video tutorial from the Fat Quarter Shop. A quick technique for a beginner-friendly scrappy quilt.
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. I purposely chose the low-volume prints from the collection to give it a faded look. 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?
