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!

Here is some gorgeousness from this past week:

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!

Fat Quarter Shop is an online fabric retailer that sells quilting fabrics, fabric precuts, quilt kits, patterns, notions and more. We also offer a wide range of exclusive kits, clubs and block of the month programs. We offer major brands such as Moda Fabrics, Riley Blake Fabrics, Windham, Robert Kaufman, Art Gallery, Marcus Brothers and Northcott. We carry the largest online selection of fat quarter bundles! 

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop's reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!
