Jelly Roll Railway | Scrap Quilt

Hello and happy Friday! Today I'm excited to tell you about a new shortcut pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.  As soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to give it a try!





The pattern is designed for a jelly roll along with background, accent, border

and binding fabric. But of course the first thing I thought of was my scraps!  I immediately set to work with the scraps I've been working with most recently...



and before long I had four blocks finished up (48 blocks will give you a nice-sized 61 1/2" x 78 1/2" quilt--border included).


The finished quilt shows off two different patterns, the "x" design...



and the "O" design. Put together, it's a scrap-lover's dream!  I didn't sew these blocks together because I want to add in scraps from a variety of collections. And I'll be adding in more background fabrics, too! These four blocks went together so quickly that I can easily see this being a weekend project!

I really like the accent fabric I chose, and since I have plenty of that on hand now, I'll be cutting up the required pieces for that right away! So...to get all of the details for this fun quilt design...head over to the Jolly Jabber blog!





Thanks so much for stopping by!
