Blue bird park, finished quilt top. Simple Jelly roll quilt.

Remember these pretty jelly rolls I got a while back? It is  Bluebird Park by Kate & Birdie. Cute prints!

I started a Jelly roll quilt, following a Missouri Star Co tutorial called "Summer in the Park"

It is super easy technique, and if I say so myself, you get an awesome quilt in the end!

A few more in the works photos...

And done! I have it sent off to my Mother in Law do the the quilting. She does amazing quilting. 

I am happy to knock off another of my WIP's. My pile is getting a bit smaller. Of course, I keep starting new things. Can't help myself. 

I will post final photos when I get it back. I can't wait!

Fabric Tuesday Come on over!

Happy Tuesday friends! If you follow us on Instagram you know that Heather and I have been reunited (at my house in VA) and have been working on my baby girl's room all week!! I'll share on here too in the next week or so.  Anyway, the party ended today :(  She had to go home and it's oh so sad.  BUT I still have my mommy!!  Hope you're all enjoying the end of your summer!

Jelly Roll Jam 2 Free Pattern!

 Another awesome free pattern from Fat Quarter Shop!!

It's called Jelly Roll Jam 2.  Needed is one Jelly Roll and it yields 2 baby quilts!!

Check out Fat Quarter Shop here for the pattern.  I've also embeded their YouTube video at the end of this post. 

Us bloggers were encouraged to "make it our own".
Thankfully I had my sister Heather and my mom in town not only to help me whip it together (so fast) but also gave me the brilliant ruffle idea!!

To add ruffles to a Jelly Roll Jam 2 Quilt

-cut one jelly roll strip in half
-fold wrong sides together
-gather along the top edge to 12.5"
-create 6 total
-add ruffle between blocks

I just love this sweet quilt!
