Jolly Bar Jazz Quilt - a Fat Quarter Shop Shortcut Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My finish is a twin size Jolly Bar Jazz quilt in Sweet Marion fabrics, made as part of a Fat Quarter Shop Shortcut Quilt Along!


The Jolly Bar Jazz Shortcut Quilt pattern features jolly bars, an exclusive Moda product at Fat Quarter Shop.  They are a stack of 5" x 10" rectangles.


I changed the size of the white border and added a floral border to make it a twin size.


Here is the video Kimberly from Fat Quarter Shop made for the Jolly Bar Jazz quilt.  Love the shirt, Kimberly!


You can get Kimberly's Jolly Bar Jazz quilt kit in Creekside at Fat Quarter Shop.


And here I am in my Fat Quarter Shop Impressions shirt in front of my quilt, just like Kimberly!  The shirt is really soft and comfy and perfect for these cooler fall days.  It would be a fun gift for a friend or you!

I love this quilt and the fabric, it has a modern vintage vibe. I can't wait for the start of the Splash of Color QAL, I think I have my fabrics ready. It's going to be fun.
