Jelly Roll Railway - a new pattern from FQS

Fat Quarter Shop publishes quite a lot of patterns and tutorials.  (If you don't already follow their blog, you should do so to see all the fun!)

I've been enjoying working my Bella Basics and had fun trying their latest one called Jelly Roll Railway.

The blocks go together quickly and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.  For my quilt, I pulled a long horded precut of Sweetwater Pure from my stash set with other fabric from that line.

This was a fun and fast quilt to put together and I can't wait to quilt it.  I'm thinking of straight lines along the 'railway' and then some fun FMQ in the background space.

My quilt holder was very helpful until immediately after the photo shoot was done - and it was a quick one - he rolled the quilt up into a big ball.  "I just ironed that!" I said but it looks like it will need to be ironed again.

I am really trying hard this year to use my fabric stash.  When I do purchase something, it is for a project I am working on right then  As a result, I'll be piecing the back out of some other Sweetwater large scraps.

Find more information about the pattern on today's Jolly Jabber blog.   (And when you visit their blog, you'll find a coupon code for your very own jelly roll.)

The photo below is true to color.  This was a fun quilt!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I am enjoying seeing everyone's outcome on this cute quilt. Every one of them is so different. I like how you used the solids. So nice. It has a comforting look to it. We all need a little comfort.

  2. Your version of this old scrap pattern looks so great in those colors. I look forward to seeing the quilting you do on it.

  3. Lookin' good, Patty! You've inspired me to head on over to the Fat Quarter Shop!

  4. A very fun and pretty finish. Even better you used up some stash. I've been working on that too.

  5. Cute! I love this version. Gonna have to make this one =)

  6. Very, very nice! I love blues with browns!
