Jolly Bar Row Along Update

We are more than halfway in the Jolly Bar Row Along.  This is a weekly block and row quilt along on Jolly Jabber, the Fat Quarter Shop blog.  We began with the Sparrow Tracks block, making a bunch of those for the top and bottom rows.

I’m using the Harper’s Garden Jolly Bar to do the quilt along.  My solid color is Porcelain in Bella Solids.  You’ll need the book for the block patterns. Jolly Bar Book Vol 2 is available at FQS.  The second week we did Spinning Spools.

Then, week three was the Migration block.  The details for the number of blocks needed for each step is on Jolly Jabber, publishing on Mondays.

  1. Love the fabric choice. It is cute and bright. I’m not sure I would have been able to put together that much variety if I was selecting my own fabrics. Not “sewing along” but enjoy watching what others are creating. i’m still behind with my Vintage Christmas blocks. ;(

    Hello Carole, The fabric that you chose for the Row Along are lovely! I enjoyed seeing each of the blocks that you have shared. I hope that you continue to have fun creating the blocks. Have a wonderful day!

    I love the way the spool block have such depth!!! And then I’m pretty smitten with the butterflies and the other ones as well. Great choice of fabric too.
    p. s. Just started “A Week In Winter” – such a nice soft story. So much national drama and local stuff and this is exactly what I need. Thanks for the recommendation.
    Next up: “Genesis” by Robin Cook

    Finally jogged my memory – we used to make the spool block quilt for retirees from the fabric store and made the spool center block with striped fabric and left every other block solid light color and empty for signatures. Maybe 45 x 45, just enough for the sofa. Love this quilt more everytime I look at it. So light and airy.
