No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop


Welcome to the No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop! I was delighted when I was asked to participate - can you tell why? This pattern is so easy to make and perfect for Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Bars. These precut rectangles are so easy to use - click here to see my first quilt made with them.


I chose the Daysail Jolly Bar by Bonnie and Camille for Moda. What a fun fabric line! The pattern takes 2 Jolly Bars (although there was enough left for a crib size quilt which I will show you soon). The white fabric is Bella Solids White #98 - super crisp white. I used Aurifil 50 wt for precise piecing.


This quilt is special for many reasons, but most of all because it was the first project I quilted using a long-arm machine! So scary after quilting everything with my Bernina. To get used to it I quilted meandering with hearts here and there. I plugged along and was done in 4 hours! My shoulders and wrists were very happy with the change in equipment!!!


After holding the quilt for me so I could photograph it my youngest son, Ryan, rolled it up and decided it was his advanced Christmas gift! Not so fast, boy!

Fat Quarter Shop's free pattern can be downloaded by clicking here. They also launched a video to help you with the piecing. If you want to jump right in, FQS has prepared kits for this quilt. Click on the links below to see them:


Now, for the giveaway: Fat Quarter Shop is giving away a Jolly Bar of your choice! Just leave me a comment letting me know how you would use a nice package of precut rectangles in your projects. If you follow me, leave me an extra comment for another chance to win. This giveaway is open to all of you, regardless of where you live. Make sure I have a way to contact you, should you be the lucky recipient. This giveaway is open until Sunday the 6th and the winner will be announced on Monday, December 7.

  1. I am fond of the quilts my grandmother made. She almost exclusively made one-patch quilts. I would take that package of precuts and make one like the ones she made for her grandchildren.

  100. What a fresh, pretty quilt! I've never worked with precut rectangles before. I think it would be fun to make a big flying geese quilt with them. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  101. sounds like your son is just like my daughter, if she gets the quilt in her hands it ends up walking out the door to her house.. but then I did the same thing to my mom so it must just be something all quilters children do..at least we know our work is appreciated.. I think I would use the pre cuts in a cuddle quilt for my grand daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Probably capy the quilt everyone made for the blog hop. It looks fun, bright and interesting. Thanks.
