Jolly Bar Meringue Quilt with the Fat Quarter Shop


 It has been a super busy fall
and unfortunately that hasn't involved 
a whole lot of quilting, 
but I did manage to join the 
Fat Quarter Shop 
in creating another adorable top.

The pattern is Jolly Bar Meringue Quilt,
by the


Fat Quarter Shop Quilting Fabrics and Supplies 


This quilt is called the Jolly Bar Meringue.

It uses Jolly Bars
with are precuts.


It was a fat and fun quilt to put together.
I used the Howdy Jolly Bar 
by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics.
You can find the fabrics here.
Fat Quarter Shop has a huge selection
of jolly bars to use for this pattern. 
Go and check them out.




The pattern can be found at
The Jolly Jabber

This quilt was made with their newest free
shortcut quilt along pattern.
Free PDF Pattern from FQS Here

They even have the cutest quilt kit to 
purchase.
You can find the kit
for this cutie, Here.
It is so bright and cheery!!

Here is mine all pieced together.


I absolutely love the fun mix of fabrics in 
line.  It would make 
a perfect quilt for a 
little tike
and the pattern works well for any age!!

Fat Eighth Fruitcake with the Fat Quarter Shop


Do you ever just look at a pattern and think
"Oh, I have got to make that one?"
Well, that's a crazy question.
I think as quilters, we
are always wanting to make
quilts that are so eye appealing.

When I set my eyes on 
the newest pattern from the

Fat Quarter Shop Quilting Fabrics and Supplies 

I knew that I wanted to join in 
on all of the fun.

This one is called
Fat Eighth Fruitcake.

A fun mix of hearts, flowers 
and vintage.
You can find the quilt kit 
for the above quilt HERE

For my version,
I chose the fabric collection
Vintage Adventure by 
Beverly McCullough for Riley Blake.

You can find the collection HERE.



I absolutely love the fun vintage prints, 
but I also know that my 
husband love the old canned ham 
style campers.


Well, since he had been begging 
(Yes, I am completely serious)
for a quilt for our bed.
I thought this pattern was
the one.
Since each corner of the blocks reminded
me of a heart, I though what more of a perfect quilt to 
have upon our bed.
A quilt  with love!

Plus, I hadn't made a quilt for 
our bed.

(Don't you just love these prints?)


Well, the pattern made a nice sized quilt, 


but if you double the size, 
it makes a fabulous oversized queen quilt.
All 102" square of it!?!


It is absolutely enormous and gorgeous, 
and way more than me and my ole
machine could handle.
Don't you just love it?

It is sent away to the my longarm
quilter to make it all gorgeous.
I was hopeful that it would have 
returned before the hop, 
but it didn't quite make it back yet.
(I can't wait to show it to you all when it 
is all quilted up.)

Stop in at the Jolly Jabber 
to see other colorways 
and quilters make this beauty.

I am so looking forward to 
be snuggled under this very soon.

Snowing at the Cabin with Island Batik

My two favorite things to do as 
an Island Batik Ambassador


are getting to play with theses 
gorgeous fabrics and
the chance to challenge myself.

November's challenge was the Cozy Cabin.
I once again turned to this gorgeous selection 
of fabric - Blue Moon.


I absolutely love it.
I made a table runner with the fabric line
in September.



You can read about it here.  

You can find some of the collection at

I had plenty 2.5" strips left to make a few 
log cabin blocks and 
more than enough beautiful Aurifil thread.
Well, I was only going to make 2.
Then 2 turned into 5.




A fun quilt that measures 
48" square.
I made it to match the table runner 
with much larger snowflakes.
The snowflakes were appliqued down 
using my favorite fusible, 
by




I just love the fun bold colors that the 
fabric have with the subtle 
pine cones, snowflakes, and trees 
spread throughout the fabric.

It should look really pretty in my
living room next year.
This year, I already have
it all decorated up.  

How about you?
Are you all decorated 
for Christmas?
