Anne of Said With Love (@said_with_love) made her version of the Jolly Bar Bon Bons Quilt using Bloomsbury by Franny & Jane for Moda Fabrics. She says, “I used the different colourways within the fabric line to have ‘rings’ of colours in the quilt… dark blues, light blues and corals in the middle.”
Heather of @the_nerdy_quilter on Instagram made her version of the Jolly Bar Bon Bons quilt using All Weather Friend by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics. She says, “This pattern is perfect for fabric that has big and bold prints. It comes together quickly so it would be a great last minute handmade gift project.”
Heidi of Buttons and Butterflies (@buttonsandbutterflies) made her version of the Jolly Bar Bon Bons Quilt using Garden Variety by Moda Fabrics. She marked her half square triangles using a tracing wheel.
Jen B. of The Smitten Chicken (@thesmittenchicken) made her version of the Jolly Bar Bon Bons Quilt using a Bleached PFD White Bella Solids Jolly Bar and Smitten Yardage. She says, “I cut the background fabric in different directions to keep the print directional.”
Jen V. of Heritage Threads (@heritage.threads) made her version of the Jolly Bar Bon Bons Quilt using Garden Variety by Moda Fabrics. She says, “I added an extra row of blocks to make my quilt rectangular and asymmetrical. I love the movement it creates and the visual interest.”
