Jelly Roll Jam II quilt project – the sequel

I had such a great time making the first quilt with the Fat Quarter Shop’s Jelly Roll Jam II pattern, I made a second one.

This one uses the other half of my Moda Deb Strain‘s Family Tree jelly roll. Just look at the difference the stronger oranges and blues make to the overall look of the quilt! And Bubby is really attracted to reds and oranges at the moment.

I managed to finish the quilt top and basting before Bubby arrived, but it has gone months without the bias trim. I had run out of scrappy bias tape and couldn’t find the time to make more.

In the end, I caved and nicked a few strips from another Moda jelly roll S’more Love to make bias tape. Turns out I can hand-stitch the bias tape while breastfeeding.

Now we will always have one quilt playmat if the other is in the wash – something very handy when my in-laws step on Bubby’s playmat with their shoes.
