Hi everyone, and welcome back to the Jolly Jabber. Today is a very exciting and monumental event for Fat Quarter Shop, as we launch our very own PRECUT using Moda Fabrics, Jolly Bars! Our Jolly Bar precut is 5″ x 10″ and is a perfect addition for a quick and easy project. Here is Kimberly to tell you more about it in our video.
To sweeten the deal, we have another surprise for you! For every Jolly Bar collection, we sneaked in four Golden Tickets, and each is a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop! That means, there are sixteen total Golden Tickets that are up for grabs, but they are only in the first batch of Jolly Bars, so you must pre-order for a chance to get one.
In addition to being the easiest precut yet, we included exclusive patterns in each Jolly Bar collections. You can only get them in the Jolly Bars, and each of the four collections has a different pattern. Get all four and mix and match the patterns as much as you want, how sweet is that?
Here’s a glimpse of the quilts made from the exclusive Jolly Bar patterns included in each collection.

Oh I love all the clever uses of the Jolly Bar!
Genius! I love the grab and go aspect – sometimes we need a quilt in a hurry!!
Great new pre-cut idea! I can't wait to use them! I've had to cut layer cakes in half many times for projects.
Leave it to you to make things easier! Thanks.
I love your quilt patterns!!!! I've made the fatquarter fizz, layer cake lemonade!
Now how fun is this……great idea the golden tickets!!!!! Kimberly you've done it again!!!!!
Great idea! These are bound to become classics. Nice job!
I think this is a terrific idea! But make one from a fabric I can use for a man or boy please!
Great new precut!! They certainly make it easy to make quilts fast!
This is a great idea! Now I need to figure out what I'd like to make with one.
Lisa, the Persimmon collection by Basic Grey would be great for a guy! You can see the one I made on my blog today (quiltdad.com). You may want to swap some of the florals out with some different prints, but the colors and many of the main prints are TOTALLY man-friendly.
