Fat Quarter Shop have introduced the exclusive Jolly bar. It's the middle child between the Layer Cake and the Charm pack. Each Jolly Bar includes 42 - 5" x 10" squares of Moda fabrics and a free pattern to make a quilt. FQS has also put together some great kits for the Jolly Bar.
There are also instructional videos for the Jolly Bar quilts on the Fat Quarter Shop You Tube channel.
I chose the Persimmon Jolly Bar by Basic Grey. I am a big fan of their fabrics, especially the grunges. This range has a very Autumn feeling to it with a palette of salmons, olive green, ochres, tans, pale blues, reds and navy. Adding a background fabric from Jenn Ski's, Mod Century collection, I created a simple quilt pattern with a floating, tilted HST block.
The quilt was finished with a Karlee Porter design - Eyes using Aurifil 50wt cotton 2310 and a nude binding (same fabric as the last border). Backing is a Wilmington wide-back fabric by Kaye England.
The blog hop will run over 5 days, showcasing different projects from:
