The Clock is ticking in my ear, counting down the time I have left to complete this project. I have given myself two more weeks to get this quilt completed and you know, it just might be doable! Bonnie Hunter writes a fantastic Mystery Quilt! Here I am at the tail end end putting together the blocks and I still cannot quite figure out what the quilt will look like when it is finished and that my friend, is the sign that it is a good mystery or I royally messed up my blocks, so let's hope its the first one! I have signed up to join a "Honey It's Done" Class at my LQS which runs from 6pm to 11pm on the 23rd to give me that extra push towards completion, the night before I also plan to hide in my bedroom/crafting room for Friday Night Sew-In. Hopefully my family understands my desire to complete some items.
So let me show you how much I have done in the past 7 days:
|8 Side-Setting Triangles|
4-Corner Setting Triangles
Assemble the Quilt Top
Sandwich the Quilt
Top-stitch Quilt the Quilt
Decide if I am keeping the Quilt
Tag the Quilt
Bind The quilt
Start Prepping for the Next Mystery!
When I was separating the blocks for the remaining Quilt blocks I realized that I need 4 more mini-blocks of each type, so I plan to dig back into my scrap stash and see if I can come up with some fabrics that run in the same families. Somehow I missed the 4 corner blocks, which turned out to be missing some blocks which are part of the count to be made. I think the count was off because I decided to make exactly half of the blocks, but I think more are needed to make the lap quilt square.
I am linking up today to:
