Blogger Choice: Cara Wilson - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Blogger Choice: Cara Wilson

The Fat Quarter Shop and Cara Wilson, of Cara Quilts & #talknt have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Cara has specially selected 12 of her favorite prints along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids from our store for this special bundle found only at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Q: What will you be making with your Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: My bundle is so cheerful and bright, it reminds me of a summer cocktail and a party at the pool or lake! I think it’s perfect for a light summer quilt, maybe to bring on picnics or trips to the beach.

The happy feeling I get from the fabrics also make me think of a fabulous party girl I know, so it may make a quilt for her. Something as outgoing and fun as she is.

Adding white would make the colors really pop, a light grey like Moda’s Zen would add some calm, or a light yellow for some mellow.

Q: What quilt project are you currently working on?
A: I hate to say it but I can’t show what I’m working on right now, which is why my blog is sparse. It really is so hard not to show and share everything with people. Trust me when I say that bloggers and designers hate NOT showing more than you hate being teased!

My last project I can show is a fun baby quilt made using a Modern Workshop layer cake, the Sizzix Big Shot bottle die, and some Moda Bella Solid Chocolate. It was a fun and easy quilt to put together and is backed with Moda Snuggles, which is what I back ALL of the baby/kids quilts I make.

Hot Seat:
1. jelly roll or layer cake
2. planned or scrappy
3. prints or solids

Leave a comment on this post choosing one of each pair you think Cara would have selected. Answer correctly and you will have a chance to win one of her Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundles.
You have exactly one week from this post till the contest closes.

Good Luck!


  1. Aahh, this bundle has me written all over it. I love it! I'm going to hope the answer is layer cake, scrappy and prints.

  2. 1. layer cake
    2. planned
    3. prints

    Love that Modern Workshop quilt–the brown is a nice change from the typical whites and grays.

  3. layer cake; planned; prints.

    I knew I recognized this blogger. 🙂 it's been a while, but I love some of her projects on Moda Bake Shop

  4. Just because: Layer cake, scrappy, solids. This is my dream bundle. It would work with a project I'm working on now.

  5. I'm guessing layer cake, scrappy and prints. And beautiful fabric as usual! The Jolly Jabber is now one of my favorite spots to visit every day.

  6. What a wonderfully colorful bundle of fabrics. Perfect for summer! LOVE IT!

    My guess would be
    jelly roll

  7. Hmmmm, I've followed Cara for a while, but she is always surprising me. I'll go out on a limb and say Jelly Roll, Scrappy, and prints!

  8. Love the colors in this bundle. I'm going to guess Layer Cakes, Scrappy & Prints.

    Layer Cake

    This would be perfect for the NICU charity quilts that we are making. Thanks for a chance to win.

  10. Layer cake, scrappy and prints. this would make a great quilt for my 7 year old granddaughter!

  11. I feel as if I should know the answer to this one! I'm saying, Layer cake, scrappy, prints.

    The scrappy or planned is the hardest question for me.

  12. Layer cake, planned, prints.
