Jingle All the Way

Okay, so let's just all pretend that this quilt is showcased with a pristine snowy backdrop, and a mug of hot chocolate in hand, instead of the lush, green landscape that is reality.


The heat index was close to 110 degrees today, and it feels a little weird to be spreading Christmas cheer amidst these sweltering temps, but I really love this finish!  The Baubles pattern works perfectly with the Jingle holiday fabrics, and really look like vintage blown glass ornaments.


I used all of my Jingle scraps, along with a leftover piece from the Santa's Here line, and filled out the backing with Kona Basil Green.  The darker solid and tonal green fabrics really make those scraps pop, and I do love how the quilting really shows up on a solid.


This one got a Kona Red binding, and it creates a perfect frame for the quilt.


I have made several Christmas quilts over the last few years, but I've never kept one for myself.  Well, this is the year that my own couch gets a special, snuggly quilt during the holiday season, because this one is all mine!
