Jolly Bar Blog Hop with Fat Quarter Shop

Just what is a Jolly Bar?  It's a new product, exclusively available from Fat Quarter Shop.



This little treat is just the right size.  Perfect for when you would like a little more than a charm pack.  It's half the size of a layer cake; 42 pieces of 5" x 10" cuts from these great Moda collections.  Each Jolly Bar comes with an exclusive Fat Quarter Shop coordinating pattern.

And that's not all!
Within each Jolly Bar collection, the FQS has hidden four Golden Tickets, and each is a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop! That means, there are sixteen total Golden Tickets that are up for grabs, but they are only in the first batch of Jolly Bars.  You must pre-order for a chance to get one.

When I was offered the opportunity to take part in the Jolly Bar Blog Hop, it was not easy to choose only one collection from that yummy selection.  But I managed....


Lakeside Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings.


Lakeside Gatherings has a masculine feel, with the navies and greys, and those cool anchor prints.  I love the visual interest afforded by the checked and woven prints, too.  Those are all offset by a bit of brightness with the yellows, creams and off white prints.




This handsome little thing was a quick put together.  Only 1 fat quarter was needed for background, a half yard for binding, and 1.5 yards for backing.  Perfect for a last minute baby shower gift!


I just straight line quilted with my walking foot along the seam lines and double outlined the little white diamonds.  The background, binding and backing were all straight out of my stash.



approximately 36" x 48"

Modern Lattice is a free quilt pattern for anyone who follows the Sew Fresh Quilts blog!  Just leave me a comment letting me know how you follow and I will email you the pdf pattern.  If you are a wordpress blogger or no reply commenter, please be sure to include your email address in your comment.

EDITED TO ADD:
Due to the large number of no reply commenters who are interested in getting the Modern Lattice quilt pattern, to make things much easier and so no one misses out, I have added it to my PayHip pattern store here,
where you can download it for FREE!




Also up for grabs is a MYSTERY GIFT from Fat Quarter Shop!

The more precuts the better in my book. I like the lakeside and the Nautical Jolly bars. Thanks for the free pattern. Reading the other comments, I am confused. In order to win the gift certificate don't you have to buy a Jolly Bar? And you are not giving away a Jolly bar, are you?

Your pattern is great! I hope the mystery giveaway is a Jolly Bar but I would take whatever it is;-)
