Jolly Bar Row Along- Week 5

Hi! I’m back with week 5 of the Jolly Bar Row Along with Fat Quarter Shop. This week’s block is called Due North. You will need a copy of the Jolly Bar Book Volume 2, your favorite Jolly Bar and the fabric requirements to complete this quilt. Are you quilting along?

Buy the Jolly Bar Volume 2 Book

I picked Bonnie and Camille’s Early Bird fabric line for my Jolly Bar. I love Bonnie and Camille for Moda. I really love the little tulips and birds in this line. And no line would be complete without their beautiful florals! They are sew cute!

Oliso Iron

Where would I be without my Oliso iron? It gets so hot! It helps keep my blocks nice and flat with all that heat! And it’s pink!

Fork Pins

Do you have points that need to line up? These Due North blocks need the perfect point. The best way to get that is with FORK PINS!!! My quilting life changed when I found these. I used to unpick and unpick my blocks until my points matched. Now I use these pins and I don’t have to unpick, like ever! It’s amazing! The fork pin holds either side of the seam while stitching. The fabric cannot slide while stitching. If you haven’t tried these, you should!

Favorite Tools

My favorite tools! I am always grabbing for my Olfa Rotary Cutter. It is the perfect size and aqua (my other favorite color!) And I only sew with Aurifil Thread! My machine loves it and so do I! It glides beautifully through the fabric. I won’t use anything else!

I am liking how these Due North blocks turned out. They have a modern edge to it that I love! And of course those florals are my favorite! And polka dots! This fabric is sew cute!

Thanks for following along today! If you would like to see more of what I’m up to check out my Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest!

Chirp Out!
