Fat Quarter Shop are at it again with another fast, fun and free pattern using pre-cuts. This time it's the return of the jelly roll jam...for part 2! I love it when I get an email from Kimberly asking if I'd like to play along with a new pattern or a blog tour
You can download the free PDF pattern here and check out the video tutorial here.
I chose to make my version in an indigo jelly roll from Moda. It's a range of fabrics that I wouldn't normally choose, but I was drawn to the denim blues and the texture to the prints and thought it'd be a really good line for either a man, or for a classic baby quilt for a little boy. Particularly for a baby with parents that have modern tastes who might be a little put off by a 'regular' baby quilt. I've been seeing a lot of indigo dyed fabrics and clothing on pinterest and it's stuck in my head as something I'd like to try. I never have any time for much other than work these days, so I realise this is the closest I'll get to indigo dyes for a while!
I picked out the blues for this quilt (I still have a couple of blues and the beige colours left for a second quilt - this pattern makes two quilts from one jelly roll!)
It's still just a quilt top...because I'm trying to decide whether I can hand quilt it, just simply, kantha style, or whether I should machine quilt it. I'm also toying with the idea of getting more fabric to make it bigger, I just love the way these fabrics look. What do you think? Go bigger? (It'd make a really good Christmas present for a friend of mine if it was a tad bigger).
