Jelly Roll Jam 2 Quilt

Do you know what jelly rolls are?
If you think that these are jelly rolls, then you have exactly as much quilting knowledge as is needed to make a quilt from a jelly roll. 
If you can sew some basic straight lines, you can sew up an adorable lap quilt from a fabric jelly rolls, which incidentally, look like this:
{Click the jellyroll to be transported to the jelly roll haven over at the Fat Quarter Shop}

This quilt is a very quick sew and is is perfect for a beginner or someone who wants an instant gratification project (me? I fit both categories). 
The pattern is FREE and color coded, but if you get stuck or want to see anything in more detail, there is an instructional video, which is also FREE!

Here was my quilt front before it became a quilt sandwich.
After batting, backing, and binding, here is the finished quilt. 
I am very much still a beginner and there is some room for improvement, but the colors are beautiful and the design really highlights the fun mix of fabrics. 
This is a great weekend project and the kids are already arguing about who gets to use it first, which is a true ego boost.
