Fat Quarter Shop

Layer Cake Pop


 Get Quilt Kit HERE

They did their quilt kit in Spectrum by V and Co.

Such a fun fabric line!

Here is my version of this quilt….

I just love these little stars that this pattern makes! Cute.

I used a Cotton and Steel layer cake and made my own jelly roll out of a cream dot background fabric. The cream color worked really well with this line.

It was a fun pattern and a great way to use up some of those layer cakes we have piling up!!!!

Wanna see all the different versions of this quilt?….. and a chance to win the Fat Quarter Shop GIVEAWAY?

No Bake Jolly Bar Quilt – Easy and Free Pattern!

No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop!


Hey there guys! Today I am a stop on the No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.

Fat Quarter Shop has a fun, fast and fabulous FREE quilt pattern to share with you…

They call it the No Bake Jolly Bar….

Here is the FREE PATTERN!

For my quilt I used a white layer cake and two jolly bars in “the Boat house” by Sweetwater for MODA fabrics.

In case you don’t know what a jolly bar is…..it is basically a layer cake cut in half, 5″ x 10″ rectangles. Super fun and easy for making a quilt.

Let me tell you…. this quilt came together lickety-split! One day I made all the blocks and the next I put them all together. This is a nice size quilt too… It finishes at 63.5″ x 81.5″, so it will make a nice size quilt to use as a gift for Christmas. Can’t wait to get it quilted up!


Fat Quarter shop has lots of kits for this quilt….

You can get some awesome Quilt Kits HERE

2000 and Sassy…


As we turn the page I realize that 2013 has been amazing and definitely Sassy!

On April 1st, I dove head-first into blogland and published my first post here at The Sassy Quilter. I began by paying homage to my Grandmother and teacher(her nickname was “Sassy”, the original) and my very first quilt that I finished with her six years ago. You can read all about it here in My Quilt Story.

Every day since has been packed full of quilty goodness and I am loving every minute of it! My quilty universe is ever expanding with new things to learn, quilts to make, friends to meet, fabric to buy(of course) and the inspiration from my fellow bloggers is never ending.

Here is a 2013 Sassy review:
