Whip up sweet quilt blocks using Jolly Bars and the new Jolly Bar Cake Mixes.

What are Jolly Bars and Cake Mix Recipes?

In this video, Kimberly Jolly, the founder and owner of the Fat Quarter Shop showcases the pre-cut fabrics called Jolly Bars along with the coordinating Cake Mix Recipes. 

These 5” x 10” Jolly Bars and the Cake Mix Recipe Pad exclusively sold at the Fat Quarter Shop are just the inspiration I needed this weekend. I love the size and price tag for these fabric cuts — not too big, not too small, but just right for adding beautiful fabrics to my stash without breaking the bank. These pre-cuts come in classic solids and beautiful prints. 

Each Jolly Bar Cake Mix Recipe Card pad includes 44 pages. Each page makes TWO 3” finished Half Square Triangles (HSTs) and EIGHT 1½” finished HSTs. Use them to create your own blocks or follow one of the designs shown on the cover.

I love a long walk down a fabric aisle, even if it's an online one. From smooth creamy solids and mouthwatering prints, the delicious colors fuel my creativity.

My new favorite has to be the Sundrops Jolly Bar® by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics . It's the first on my shopping list today as I make plans for upcoming mug rugs, mini quilts, and wall art. My sweet addiction to Jolly Bars begins!

As I wait (impatiently) for new Jolly Bars and the Cake Mix Recipe Pad to arrive, I'm sketching design ideas with Half Square Triangles (HSTs) and our You are Loved Sentiment Panels. Oh the possibilities...
