Quilty Staffer Teresa is sewing the quilt with Christmas Eve like the Jolly Holiday Quilt Kit, but with a few changes to Santa to make him her own. She’s using Bella Solids Bubble Gum for his face, Bella Solids Rose for his rosy cheeks, and Bella Solids Tea Rose for his nose!
Another option for customizing the Jolly Holiday Quilt is to change the background to Bella Solids Charcoal fabric. Pattern designer Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique explains how to do this on her blog.
