Hi everyone! The end of June has snuck up on us, thus we are at the end of #jollybarjune! That means it is time to dig into the last bite of news from the Jolly Bar world, and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Not too long ago, we indulged in a really fun Cake Mix Bake Off, in which we and several quilty bloggers went head to head with original quilts we created with Moda’s fabulous Cake Mix Recipe Pads. We really love those recipe pads, so… why not make them for Jolly Bars? Introducing our exclusive Jolly Bar Cake Mix Recipe Pads!
We love our new Jolly Bar Cake Mix Recipe Pads!
They have everything you love about the Layer Cake-sized Cake Mixes in a convenient 5″ x 10″ size to use with Fat Quarter Shop’s Jolly Bars! Basic instructions, block ideas, and 44 sheets of triangle paper will get you well on your way to an original quilt. Of course, our new Bella Solid Jolly Bars make perfect backgrounds to pair with any of our other Jolly Bars!
Each recipe card from the Jolly Bar Cake Mix pad will yield two 3″ finished half square triangles and eight 1.5″ finished half square triangles, and you can combine those units to make a 6″ finished block.
Still not convinced? We have a video to show how simple it is to get perfect half-square triangle units, along with some block ideas to get you started. Sew tasty!!
Last but not least, we have another morsel for you. While you get your creative juices flowing to start creating your own original Jolly Bar Cake Mix quilts, here are a few “recipes” to try in the meantime! These three patterns are available exclusively at Fat Quarter Shop as convenient PDF patterns.
Bake Up Our Jolly Bar Cake Mix Quilts!
They all start with one Solid Jolly Bar, one Print Jolly Bar, and one Jolly Bar Cake Mix Recipe Pad. Very doable!
I really love these patterns because they are really unique. These blocks feel so fresh!
If you have a friend who is interested in trying a first quilt, these are good to recommend. They are goof-proof, quick, and are just so cute!
