Kimberbell “Jingle all the Way” Quilt

“Jingle All The Way” is a patchwork quilt of Christmas surprises with more than a dozen machine embroidered designs and new techniques like chenille trees and traditional quilt blocks. The Embroidery CD includes all the applique designs in the quilt, plus 2 additional sizes for each design! Miniature fringe wreathes and Mylar lights adorn the row of houses and the vinyl applique makes the snow globes appear real. The festive flying geese strips are also pieced-in-hoop! We will be doing so many different techniques all on one quilt. This dimensional quilt has so many cool aspects to you will fall in love with it too!
