  21. I would love any of the Jolly Bars. Christmas ones first I guess. I wish I was there with you guys.

  22. I love several, but by far Fresh Air is my favorite Jolly Bar. I even love the name on this beautiful Spring day! πŸ™‚

  23. It is a hard decision but I think Ambleside is my favourite Jolly Bar right this moment. Have a great time at Market.

  24. I hate when you ark us to choose a favorite child! One of my favorites right now is daysail… Of course my favorite is always changing or being added to!

  25. None with Lori Holt fabrics so I guess the Farmhouse Jolly Bar is my Favorite today. Thanks for sharing Market with us on the Blog, IG and FB

  26. I love the new Ambleside and Union Blues and … but then I love them all … Which to choose, which to choose. πŸ˜‰ Have fun!

  27. I'm so horrible at picking a favourite! I could easily pick Daysail or Somerset or The Boat House or Farmhouse or Hello Darling or Jingle!!! Just love them all!

  28. I like several of them, but I think "Fresh Air" by American Jane tops the list. Thanks for the giveaway — whatever it is!

  29. Ever since I saw a blanket made out of a Boathouse jolly bar, I've been itching to get one! But…if Hello Darling were out already… we ALL know that would win the favorite contest!
