Description

When I bought my new sewing machine, the LQS also had a jelly roll of Kate Spain's upcoming line Daydreams. I was really surprisied as this is not being released until next year?! And usually Australia gets fabrics years after they are released!! (They had "Vintage Modern" in the 'newly arrived' shelf?!

I thought the Jelly Roll Jam was the perfect easy thing to put together to get some practice on my new toy and to try out this gorgeous rainbow fabrics I've been anticipating. This line is just gorgeous and has some great fabrics that would be useful for blenders. I can't wait for yardage to be available!

I used the whole jelly roll to make it more lap sized and added 2 strips from 'Sunnyside' to be able to complete enough full blocks.

Finished! It just needs a wash, but it's already been comfort approved!

Kate Spain delivers again and your quilt shows it off nicely! I'm wondering if you could use a layer cake for this pattern? How long are the individual strips?

Joke

Terryt1955 here's the original pattern: http://www.fatquartershop.com/Free-Quilt-Patterns/Free-Quilt-Pattern-Jelly-Roll-Jam-Free-Quilt-Pattern.asp you sew the jelly roll strips together and then cut them so 2 parts will make a square once you mix up the fabrics -- so 2 sets of 6 strips will make a 12" finished square. Without a jelly roll, the individual small strips in each set would be 2.5" x 6.5". With a layer cake, you could probably make smaller squares to prevent wastage?
