Announcing The Jolly Bar Book Vol. 4

We are excited to share the newest book in our Jolly Bar Book Series – Volume 4! We had sew much fun compiling the quilt patterns from some of our past Jolly Bars, and we can’t wait to share them with you all. If Jolly Bars make you feel jolly, keep reading to learn more about this book and an upcoming quilt along!

Jolly Bars are exclusive to Fat Quarter Shop. They are precut fabric selections similar to Layer Cakes but exactly half the size. These fabric bundles include 5″ x 10″ cuts, usually in about 42 prints from a collection.

Wanna see some sneak peek images from the book? Here are a few different blocks from Jolly Bar Book Vol. 4

… and here are a few of the quilts too!

This is the Frills quilt and if you want to make it just like ours we have a fabric kit available!
The Parish quilt also has a fabric kit if you’re looking to make it just like ours!

You can get the Jolly Bar Book Vol. 4 today, they’re on our shelves waiting for you. The book includes 20 full-color quilt patterns designed just for our exclusive Jolly Bar precuts. Grab a few Jolly Bars, pick a design, and get sewing!

To celebrate the release of Jolly Bar Book Vol. 4, we are hosting the Jolly Bar 4 Quilt Along! We’ll sew a few blocks weekly from January through March of 2023.

This is a digital sneak peek at the quilt pattern! The quilt measures 66.5″ x 84.5″ finished. As we get closer to the start of the Jolly Bar 4 Quilt Along, we will have more details, so be sure you’re subscribed here on the blog!

  1. I received mine too and I have to say this is my absolute FAVORITE Jolly Bar book so far!
    Looking forward to the Quilt Along!

  2. Got my Jolly Bar 4 books (also have: 1, 2, and 3 Yay me). Looking forward to the quilt a long.

  3. I love your tutorials and trunk shows. Wish I could buy everything. Addicted to Tilda.
    Not sure if this is where I comment to be registered for give sways. If not please tell me how. Thanks for all you do.

    1. Hi Robinson Barb!

      We don’t have one specific place to register for all of our giveaways. Anytime there is a giveaway on a blog post, the directions will be listed within in the blog. Instagram giveaways will always be listed on those posts as well.

      To register for blog emails, though, you can select the pink “subscribe” button on the right-hand side of any blog page. This will send you emails every time we post a new blog.

      Hope this helps!

  4. I can’t wait to get my Jolly Bar book! Saw the patterns on the blog. I can’t decide which pattern I like best!

  5. Your partern, Bow-tiful Quilt, page 8-11, does not tell how to out together the bottom of the block. A more advanced sewer could figure it out, but a beginner may not be able to.

    1. Hi Sandra!

      When there are several units to list, we simplify by saying assemble block, so the instructions aren’t so cumbersome. But all the info is in the diagram. The pieces in the diagram are labeled, and there are pressing arrows.

      Hope this helps!

  6. Congrats on that! I saw your creativity and love for your work. I believe you can bring life to anything you want. You make things in such a way that a person may fall in love with them. After you gave me some ideas to do in my spare time and make things beautiful. Thanks!
