Bar Hop Quilt Along!

 Once again Scott over at Blue Nickel Studios has come up with another fun quilt along. Last time it was Uberfest (you can still check out those great blocks here and here), this time it's Bar Hop! 

We're all including some kind of rectangle in our blocks so that is where the bar part comes from, promise you don't have to do any drinking, but if you want to just make sure you're done with the rotary cutter first lol.

The blurb from Scott!

The fabric we are featuring has been generously supplied by Clothworks from their European Taupe VIII collection by Kinkame.  Soft, subtle, and maybe just a little more “traditional” in tone.  We have fourteen bloggers with styles ranging from very modern to the somewhat more traditional side of the quilting street. We believe the “wall” that sometimes comes up between quilters on those lines should be torn down, so that is part of why the collection has been chosen. If you choose to make your blocks out totally modern or totally traditional, they will work just fine.  We love to see the variety of blocks that emerge from these quiltalongs!
Each designer was given four fat quarters from the collection and told they could add one solid and one print of their choice OR two solids and that was it. The other requirement was that they had to use at least one rectangle (bar) in the block  somewhere.  The blocks will all finish to a useful 12” x 12” size.  Feel free to post your blocks here as you hop along with us!
