Precut Parade - Dovetail Quilt

Today I am excited to share my Dovetail quilt as part of the Fat Quarter Shop  Pre-cut Parade!!    Each month a blogger shares a project using a different pre-cut and a Free Fat Quarter Shop Pattern and July is all about the Jolly Bar!!!  A Jolly Bar is a 5" x 10" Pre-cut that is exclusive to the Fat Quarter Shop.  They are so fun and fast and make spectacular finishes!!!    And here is my Jolly Bar project, the Dovetail Quilt ;)

The Dovetail Pattern uses 3 Jolly Bars and I added sashing so I used 2 yards background fabric, instead of the original 1 yard.  I used 3 Lollipop Garden Jolly Bars by Lella Botique for Moda Fabrics and the black and white text print for the background.  And I love the way it adds interest while still making all of those wonderful rainbow of  happy brights just pop!!! 

The angles of this quilt make it so great!!    And those angles also give you some bonus HST's that I am planning on turning into a matching pillow.  So fun!!!  Like I said, I added 2" finished sashing to my quilt, so it now finishes at 65" x 82" which will make it just perfect for a twin size bed, and that matching pillow will just be so great to go right along with it ;)

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over loose feather.  This has truly become a favorite design to quilt.   It is super fast, super pretty, and oh so much fun to quilt.  It really is my new Go To ;)   And I just love all of the beautiful texture it creates with all of those soft curves :)

 And that is my Dovetail quilt!!!  If you would like to make your own Dovetail quilt you can find the free pattern here.  And be sure to pop on over to the Jolly Jabber for lots more on the Pre-cut Jolly Bar quilting inspiration!!!  I just love using pre-cuts and had so much fun playing with these Jolly Bars!!!
