Today I am super excited to share with you a new finish, and just in time for the Holidays ;) I was thrilled when the Fat Quarter Shop asked me if I wanted to help them celebrate the 1 Year Anniversary of their pre-cut The Jolly Bar by making a No-Bake Jolly Bar Quilt and I knew right away that I wanted to make a Christmas one!!
I used Hollys Tree Farm by Sweetwater for Moda. I love the happy Christmas colors and the super fun and adorable prints!!! It is just so fun!!! I used the polka dot print from April Showers by Bonnie and Camille for Moda for the background and just love the way it looks like little snowballs ;)
I just love the fun design in this quilt and the great movement. And it is certainly a short-cut quilt as it has some fun little tricks of how to make this super quick!!!
And of course, Kimberly has made an awesome video tutorial that helps you along every step of the way making it go even quicker ;)
In fact, I spent more time quilting mine than piecing it, which still wasn't too long ;) I decided to do double arches in the prints to make the cool orange peel design and then large pebbles in the background that hopefully looks like some snowballs and continues the whole snowball theme going on there ;) I just love pebbling on Christmas quilts ;)
And of course, you have to love all of the super yummy texture it creates ;) Just perfect for snuggling up in front of the fire with ;)
And that is my Christmas Time No Bake Jolly Bar quilt ;) This really is a super fun quilt to make, and you could totally still make one up for Christmas ;) You can find the free pattern here and all the Jolly Bars here (which just happen to be on Sale!!!) And if you don't want to make a Christmas one, you can always do like Kimberly and make up a beautiful one to use all year round. You can find the original No Bake Jolly Bar quilt kit here and the backing set for it here .

And now I think I am going to go sit by the tree and read some stories with my little one all snuggled up in this quilt ;)
Have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Linking up this finish to Amanda's and Sarah's :)
