Today I am part of a blog hop hosted by the Fatquarter Shop to show you their fun new book, The Jolly Bar Book Vol. 1. " A Jolly Bar is a precut bundle of fabric with forty-two 5" x 10" fabric cuts (bars) and is a Fatquarter Shop exclusive precut. This is a great and affordable way to try out a line of fabric and using their new book, you can whip up a quick quilt in no time.
The pattern I used with the gorgeous Sundrops fabric is "Picket Fences Quilt". What a fun and easy pattern to stitch up. This quilt measures 45.5" x 56.5" I love the circular swirls the quilter used on both quilts.
The second quilt I made using "Daysail" and the "Seas the Day Quilt" pattern. This was equally as fun to make. I used a soft blue chambray for the background. This quilt measures "38.5" x 45.5" Both quilts are good lap and/or baby size and can be easily made larger with the addition of another Jolly Bar.
Head on over to the Fatquarter Shop and grab a book and Jolly Bar and join the fun! To see more lovely Jolly Bar quilts visit these bloggers below:
