Today Is the Day! A Jolly Bar!




Unfortunately I completely missed my day to blog about the new and
exclusive pre-cut by Moda and from the Fat Quarter Shop!

I am so sorry to have missed my day to show what I made from my 
"Jolly Bar"!
Yes, the new pre-cut is called a Jolly Bar!
I know, cute huh?

It's a 5" x 10" cut of a collection. It's half the size of a layer cake or you could say it's 
 like 2 charm packs... but better!
Kimberly Jolly (get it-- jolly bar) put together a great video about it and you can 
view it here.

I was asked to play along and make up a quilt using 
the new 3 Sisters line called Atelier
The colors in this collection are gorgeous and I was so excited to come
up with a pattern using this collection from 3 Sisters.


I stopped midstream  due to the passing of my mom.

But I have finally gotten my little happy self back in gear
and completed my project!






I really liked the grey as a background...
it worked well with the rich colors in the group.



The block was easy enough to put together.


Using the 5" x 10" Jolly Bar I paired a background fabric the same size 
with the Jolly Bar and cut  6,  2 1/2" squares... then sewed them into half square triangles.

The remaining 2 1/2" x 5" section was reserved for the border.
Those were sewn together like a piano key border and then cut in half to
create the checkerboard.


I hope you give the new Jolly Bar a try!
But wait... there's more!!!

It comes with a pattern inside too.
Woohoo!

That is beautiful. I really like the gray. The Candy Bar size is a great idea.

It's actually called a Jolly Bar not candy bar. I'm a fat quarter shop groupie so I know this to be true. I love your quilt, it's just beautiful.

I would never have guessed that you used a precut for this quilt! I'm happy to read that you're starting to feel better.

Sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. A very sad time for you. Had she lived to an old age? I hope you are doing ok.
