The Jolly Bar Book Vol. 1 & Blog Hop

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. 

I decided to make two quilts using "Daysail" by Bonnie & Camille for Moda (left) and "Sundrops" by Cory Yoder for Moda (right). 

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:
