Jelly Roll Jam 2 with the Fat Quarter Shop!!!

First off, I want to thank you for the wonderful Birthday Wishes from Saturday.  It really was a spectacular day and all of your sweet comments made it all the better ;) And just a note,  my Happy Quilting Patterns are still marked down 35% for another 2 days ;)  Turning 35 is a lot more fun with a sale to celebrate!

Now let's get back to today's post :)   Do you recall the Fat Quarter Shops original Jelly Roll Jam??  It was the first quilt in the Shortcut Quilt series.  Well, it had such a huge response that the Fat Quarter Shop has now come up with it's best friend.  The Jelly Roll Jam 2!!!   You can download the free Jelly Roll Jam 2 Pattern right here :)

And just like the first one, all you need is a jelly roll to get going :)   I used a Fox Field by Tula Pink for Free Spirit Fabrics Roll.   I just love these beautiful colors and prints!!

Jelly Roll Jam 2 finishes up at 36 1/2" x 38 1/2", just perfect for snuggling a wee little baby in ;)   A lot of the quilt is made with strip piecing which makes it go together super fast and super easy.  It really is the perfect pattern for when you are in a pinch to whip up a quick baby blanket ;)

And when I say it is fast and easy I really do mean it.   Piecing this quilt took about 2 hours, and that was with a few stops to help munchkins :)   And then the Fat Quarter Shop makes it even easier with their step by step You Tube tutorial.   You can watch it below or see it at the Fat Quarter Shop You Tube Channel.  

After whipping up the top, it was time to quilt it.   I decided to quilt some free motion "ribbons".  These are so much fun to quilt, you really get your hips a swaying when quilting these little back and forth loops ;)    I used my favorite #402 Pearl So Fine #50 by Superior Threads to quilt this.   I just love how that color blends so perfectly with every color in this quilt ;)  

All in all, just a fun and adorable quilt that will go together in a snap.  So be sure to download the free Jelly Roll Jam 2 Pattern here and then watch the You Tube Video Tutorial here ;)   Now just grab a Jelly Roll  (which one will you pick??) and get your Jelly Roll Jam on!!!  

 Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
