I'm going to be a little MIA next week due to a little family visit I have planned. I am going to visit my aunt this weekend to celebrate her birthday. We are heading to the Apple Store so she can have her very own computer.
Hello friends! I’m glad to hear that you all like the Jingle
BOM so far. Here are a few more details. Above you can see my starting point.
This quilt will finish at about 76” x 76”. It will have 8 appliqué blocks and 8
pieced blocks. I’m hoping to get the blocks up 2 at a time with the goal of
having everything to you by October. That way we can all finish our quilts in
time to enjoy them at Christmas. For those of you who don’t want a Christmas
quilt, don’t worry, this quilt will be fine if you use a different color
First off, the center block, Miss Kringle is available here:
As far as fabric goes…I kinda hate to say this…but I cannot
give super exact amounts on all the fabrics because…mine isn’t done yet either.
BUT, never fear, I can give you a starting point. Here are my first 3 fabrics…
The green and red prints are from the Nancy’s Holiday
Favorites collection by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex. You can find them here:
The cream/yellow dot is an old Lakehouse one I had in my
stash that is no longer available…I think any solid that coordinates with your
green and red will be just fine.
For starting, I think the best thing to do would be to find
a good print for the border and large inner triangles. You don’t want anything
too big and busy here. From there I would think about a small scale
coordinating print for the setting triangles and a background solid or small
Here are some generous fabric recommendations:
green print (inner triangles, outer border): 3 3/4 yds.
