Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells is my entry in Sew Cal Girl's 2011 Holiday Quilt show.




Inspiration for the quilt was found in the book titled The Quiltmakers and a design by Joanna Figueroa called Twinkling Stars.  I changed the border a bit - my inner border is pieced with red, white and green 2 inch squares and the outer border is the same as the background fabric.




I used much of a layer cake of Sweetwater's Countdown to Christmas line   




The back will be of this reindeer print - the binding the green with red, white and black dots.  The quilt will take a trip to the LAQ next weekend.  Can't wait to get it back and curl up under my new quilt with glass of wine and a good book!




Make sure you take time to visit all the other wonderful entries!






Happy Stitching!
