Jazz Hands? No, Jolly Bar Jazz!

I am thrilled to present my contribution to the Fat Quarter Shop's latest Shortcut quilt, the Jolly Bar Jazz pattern.  This is the first time I have been asked to make a sample for a business.  I couldn't have wished for a better inaugural pattern.



Like all of the Shortcut Quilt patterns, this one went together fast.  I had all of the pieces cut out and sewn together in a matter of 2 days! 


What I also love about this quilt: it's big enough to fit a twin-sized bed.  I think it's going to be a fight between my daughter and my youngest son who gets to use it on their bed first.



I used Kona White as the background for this quilt with American Jane's Bread N' Butter line.  I think this quilt would also have looked even cuter if I could have used my Moda light blue Chambray fabric, but I didn't have quite enough yardage.  Oh well, next time, because I can definitely see myself making this again. :)





Thanks Fat Quarter Shop for the opportunity to present this great quilt to the world.  I look forward to the chance to do it again!

Keep on crafting,

Mel
