Jellyroll Jam Quilt Tutorial
It’s Monday so it must be time for to share a new tutorial. The Fat Quarter Shop designed a free baby quilt tutorial and also a video to showcase their pattern called Jelly Roll Jam. Their design uses one jellyroll and it makes TWO baby quilts!
Vanessa of V and Co used this pattern and their fabric line called Simply Style by Moda Fabric to sew a baby quilt for a boy and a girl. The pattern is very easy and beginner friendly, and I think Vanessa’s quilts are very cute:
Jellyroll Jam Quilt
You can see by the photo above that the girl’s quilt has more pink in it, and the boy’s has much more gray. For each quilt it is just a matter of sewing 18 jellyroll strips together, cutting them into 6.5″ blocks and then sew them back together, mixing up the blocks.
The only additional fabric you need beyond the jellyroll would be for the binding and backing. A jellyroll usually contains 40 to 42 strips, and you only need 18 of them for each quilt. You may even have enough leftover to use for a binding on one of the quilts.
Each quilt measures 36.5″ x 36.5″ when finished. Of course you could always add a border if you would like it a bit bigger. What do you think? Have you already made one of these Jellyroll Jam quilts? Will you make one?
