Sunday Stash & Retreat Report!

Jingle top almost done!

Earlier in the week I finished up the small items for the Good Mews craft fair, and my new purse. I also touched most of the things I packed for retreat while at retreat (instead of just touching them while packing).  I finished the Snowflake Garden wallhanging on Friday night (individual pictures on that on a separate post), and finished the top for the Jingle quilt (seen to the right before I attached the final green border). I also made about 129 out of 576 of the units for my parents’ quilt and started a paper pieced project that will be a Christmas gift.

  1. Hope you do a retreat post, though i guess you will talk about it on your podcast… I hope you had a good time and were ok with being gone

  2. Don’t take this wrong, but I hate you. You made pieced corners for your medallion!!!! I have just finished appliqueing my medallion and am getting ready to cut corner pieces to attach them as well. How do you get so much done!!! I will NOT say how much I love your Jingle Belle quilt!!! I will NOT! lolol

  3. Wow, great progress! I love the way your jingle quilt top turned out! Did you find your aeroplane bag? If not, did you check inside the luggages upstairs? Maybe you saw it when you were packing for Orlando.If you didn’t find it, the cats took it! :))) Can’t wait to see the pictures of the snowflake top in the different post!

  4. Just listening to your most recent episode where you talk about Miss Jingle. I am confused about the setting triangles around the center. Did the designer want plain squares and you decided to piece them? Was the yellow you didn’t end up adding fabric/color choices or were you thinking about adding some applique’?

    1. Jaye, I am doing the same quilt. I also just listened to her latest podcast. She did pieced corners on the center medallion and yes, the pattern has them as single fabric triangle ‘corners’. My Jingle Belle has a busy print for the setting corners of both the center medallion and the border squares so I don’t need the extra piecing for mine. I think hers with the pieced corners will be stunning. I also agree that if one uses a solid for those parts that you’d have to do some fancy quilting to really set it off or it would be too plain. Just my humble opinion.
