As you can see, I had my quilt dog approved. Isn’t little Tasha a beautiful dog and a perfect little model!

I thought it would be fun to make the Jolly Bar Jazz quilt in the fun Christmas fabrics from BasicGrey.

The two Jolly Bars I picked were called Juniper Berry. I also chose Kona Solid Olive for the background fabric.

A Jolly Bar is actually half of a layer cake so the pieces are 5-inch x 10-inch. If you have some layer cakes in your stash this would be a perfect way to use one.

There is absolutely no waste with this pattern, you simply add half-square triangles to the corners of the jolly bar piece.
