A Jelly Roll Slice Quilt for a Baby Boy!

Published Categorized as Finished Quilts, Quilting 15 Comments on A Jelly Roll Slice Quilt for a Baby Boy!

I’m so excited to share what I made from the Fat Quarter Shop’s newest free video pattern, the Jelly Roll Slice. They provided the pattern and fabric and the timing was right as I was just deciding on a pattern for a friend’s upcoming shower!

Franklin Jelly Roll and Kona Pewter

The fabric I used was Franklin by Denise Schmitt for Free Spirit. Franklin is a town not far from here so I liked that little extra connection. The baby quilt size only used half the jelly roll so since this roll came with prints and solids I separated the solids to use for a pieced back.

The blocks went together fast & easy. I’m not a particularly fast piecer so the baby quilt from start to finish was a weekend project. I really love how versatile this pattern is, it looks so great in this bold color palette as well as a softer color like Kimberly uses in the how to video.

You can pick up a kit and make one just like Kimberly’s in the Fat Quarter Shop or supply your own jelly roll with the free Jelly Roll Slice pattern that you can download here!

I was compensated in this post by the Fat Quarter Shop but my opinions are my own.


  1. I love Denyse Schmidt’s fabrics. These made such a fun verion of this quilt. Your rainbow striped backing is great. I would love to have a few yards of the stripe you used for your binding. It would work for many of my quilt projects. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I just love baby quilts that are made with bright colors, Terri Ann! And the back of your beautiful quilt is just as terrific as the front 🙂

  3. I literally gasped when I saw how you ended up quilting this pattern it s perfect! I love the combination of the angles and straight lines and that you didn t let those slices get in the way of beautiful straight line quilting 3 Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful finish!
