National Sew A Jelly Roll Finish…

IMG_5411

As you know, this last Saturday was National Sew A Jelly Roll Day. Did you sew along? I did with this 20 strip Jelly Roll that I had in my stash. I have no idea where it came from but I thought it would be perfect for this day.

I decided to use the Fat Quarter Shop Jelly Roll Jam II pattern since 20 strips would make one crib sized quilt.

Things come together very quickly with this pattern. So if you’re looking for a fast gift or an easy finish, this is a great pattern.

IMG_5442This jelly roll also came with a panel, so I decided to incorporate one of the cute critters into the quilt top.

Here’s the quilt top all laid out before I assembled it.

Here’s how the back turned out. I used another one of the critters from the panel and added some of the leftover strips. I had some Kona solid in black that I added to piece the scrappy back.

For the quilting I just did some straight line quilting in Aurifil Black. I used the same Kona solid in black for the binding since it was what I had in my stash. I had a lot of fun putting this little quilt together. It came together really quick and easy but I think it’s a great pattern visually.

  1. This turned out wonderful! My stash has gotten so big and I have thoughts like you – where did this come from? But I still wonder why I do not have jelly rolls. Makes me want to buy some now…. Love how you worked the critters in there too. Thanks for the cute post.
