It was really gross and rainy outside yesterday evening – the perfect kind of weather to stay inside and sew! And since the rain meant I couldn’t mow the lawn, I had plenty of time to finish piecing the top for my Jelly Roll Jam quilt!
After I’d sewn all the strips together, I used glue basting for the rest of the piecing to try to make sure all of my seams were matched up nicely. Glue basting is probably my new favorite technique and I’d say it worked pretty well here.
My only concern with this quilt top is its size. It is only about 36″ square currently which just feels a little small. But then again, it is supposed to be a baby quilt.
I was thinking about adding a solid border around the outside (maybe 2.5″ – 3″ wide). It would probably be a white or gray so that the colors from the jelly roll still pop and are allowed to shine.
What do you think about a border for this quilt top?
