Jelly Roll Jam // Fat Quarter Shop Free Pattern

It’s time to get your precuts out and get quilting! Fat Quarter Shop has designed a free quilt pattern called the Jelly Roll Jam. Along with the pattern they have created a full how-to-video tutorial on making the pattern.

I had the opportunity to try out the pattern ahead of time, in order to share my version with you today. The Jelly Roll Jam quilt would be a perfect first time quilt for a beginner or a super quick finish for a seasoned quilter. I was able to complete my quilt from start to finish in under 3 hours! Each forty-piece Jelly Roll® yields two 36 ½" x 36 ½" quilts, which means you can make two baby quilts or one larger throw quilt out of one Jelly Roll®.

For my version of the quilt, Fat Quarter Shop provided a Jelly Roll® of Simply Style by V & Co. Simply Style has quite a few bright color ways; I chose to using the green, gray, blue, and purple fabrics from the Jelly Roll.

When you are cutting the units for the quilt top you should be left with about a 4" x 37" strip of pieced fabrics. For the quilt backing, I used a coordinating Kona Cotton Solid in Peridot, pieced together with the leftover piece of my Simply Style fabric. I finished it off by quilting simple concentric circles.

    Alyssa, when you do the concentric circles, do you use your walking foot with the marking gauge or do you mark your quilt and then do free motion quilting? The circular pattern looks fantastic with the straight lines of the quilt top. Thanks
