My First Jelly Roll Jam Quilt

I wanted to start another baby quilt and ended up finding this awesome pattern for jelly roll quilts! I love the idea of jelly rolls, coordinated bundles of fabric that are pre-cut into strips! It's wonderful. So I started with a really fun roll with some vibrant colors and patterns. 

 

 I used the roll on the left.

Then I started the pattern by piecing my strips.

Then I cut my blocks using an acrylic 6" x 12" ruler.

Next I arranged my blocks according to the pattern and started making them into bigger blocks.

Now the backing had to be picked out after this was assembled so I could get an idea of how the colors looked together, I decided to go with blue flannel again, but this time with orange binding.

 

 Binding half done.

I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and it came together over the course of 3 days. I even had time to start a new project.
