Hello and Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my version of a fun Jolly Bar pattern from Fat Quarter Shop…Jolly Bar Jazz! The original quilt was designed with our Creekside fabrics and is absolutely beautiful!
And let me tell you…this is a quick sew…I had my dates wrong for the post date for this quilt and ended up making it all on Wednesday…yes, cut it out and sewed the top all in one day (started after lunch and was done by dinner)!
The unique trimming method for these blocks does waste a little fabric but gives you precise blocks (and I’m sure there is a way to use those trimmings). I love, love, love how this turned out. I’m using the grey leaves with red berries for the backing and the stars on red for my binding. I’ll be sure to share a picture when it arrives back from the quilter!
When my Merrily Jolly Bars arrived (the quilt uses two of these pre-cuts), I decided I didn’t want to use the browns in my quilt in order to achieve the look I was going for. So I made nine blocks instead of twelve for my quilt and used just the light prints along with the red, green, and grey fabrics.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
