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
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.
