Jingle All the Way Quilt - Friday Finish!

I have another "flimsy" finish to share with you this week. A "flimsy" is a quilt top that hasn't been quilted yet. I'm calling this one "Jingle All the Way."

Why yes, that is my Christmas tree. But the real question is did I leave it up all this time just to take a picture of it with my Christmas quilt or did I go through the motions and set up my tree again in a (poor) attempt at a photo shoot? I'll never tell!

I made this simple HST (Half Square Triangle) quilt using three charms packs of Jingle by Kate Spain for Moda.

I also used my Bloc-Loc ruler to make trimming all those HST's a breeze. Seriously, I love this ruler and I use it all the time! I never want to make HST's and other way.

Also, I have to say, look at those perfect points! I'm in love.

There's something at perfect points and matching seams that just makes me do a little happy dance inside. Okay, sometimes I do it on the outside too!

Here is a full picture of the quilt top. I believe it finishes out at 56" x 72". So it's a good size throw blanket.

I'll have to take a better picture when I quilt and finish it. For now though, I just have to make do with the crappy interior lighting. Did I mention it's snowing? Again! No outdoor shots for me in this cold winter weather. Nope. Just lots of hot chocolate. I'd say that's a fair trade-off.

  1. Oh this is so beautiful--gosh, perhaps i should use one of those rulers--my points are horrendous!! hugs, julierose

  2. It's beautiful. I keep hearing about these rulers. I'll have to see if I can find them.

  3. It may not be quilted, but that's no flimsly finish! Perfect points, great job! I like the bloc loc rulers also!

  4. That is a perfect holiday quilt, and you have plenty of time to get it quilted for next Christmas! Though if you keep your Christmas tree up all year....Greatjob on the points!

  5. Just gorgeous!! What size are your finished squares?

    1. Thank you! They finish at 4". Perfect for using charm packs. :)
