Jolly Bar Row Along- Week 4

Hi! Welcome back to week 4 of the Jolly Bar Row Along with Fat Quarter Shop. If this is your first time stopping by you can see Week 3, Week 2 and Week 1 in these previous posts. You need a Jolly Bar Book Volume 2 and the fabric requirements for the Row Along quilt which includes background yardage and your favorite Jolly Bar!

Jolly Bar Row Along

I am using Bonnie and Camille’s Early Bird fabric for my Jolly Bar. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m a BIG Bonnie and Camille fan! So this fabric line fits right in! Grab your favorite Jolly Bar and you can sew along too!

Buy the Jolly Bar Volume 2 Book

This week’s block is called Crushing on You. It is sew cute! I always love a heart block and this one is no exception!

Pressing hearts with my Oliso Mini

There are a few steps in creating this block, including trimming and pressing. I couldn’t do this pressing without my Oliso mini iron. It gets super hot which makes my blocks so flat. And it’s pink! To match my cute hearts!

Fork Pins

I haven’t shared on here for a bit my little secret to getting my points to match up, FORK PINS! These are a lifesaver. I have to use my seam ripper much less, which makes me a happier quilter! The pin holds the fabric on either side so it doesn’t shift while stitching. Fork Pins are amazing and I get perfect points every time. (even on my heart blocks!) You should try them!

Favorite tools

I have two more tools that I use all the time! I love Aurifil thread! This thread is my favorite. It glides through the fabric and creates no bulk. I am also an Aurifil Artisan so I will be sharing a more about this thread this year! I love my aqua rotary cutter by Olfa and use it everyday I’m quilting. I mean, anything aqua is my favorite!

Crushing on You

And my hearts are done! I love that they are going in the center of the quilt. And I love that this block is called Crushing on You. Isn’t that sew cute?

Are you quilting along? I hope so! This is such a fun and fast quilt!

Thanks for stopping by! If you want to see more of what I’m up to, you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Chirp Out!
