Counting down to Bonnie Hunter’s mystery several of us are working to finish up a Bonnie Hunter UFO. Feel free to join us and link up your quilt or leave a comment letting us know what kind of progress you are making.
Did you see my Friday Finish?? It was my Stars over Shallotte quilt that I have been working on as part of the challenge. I never in a million years thought I would get it finished. I think it had been so long since I really worked on a “for me” project that I was just so excited and squeezed in some time or stayed up late a couple nights…plus I had a whole Saturday to work on only it.
So where does that leave me in the challenge…why grabbing another Bonnie UFO to see if I can possibly get this one further along. Even if I don’t finish it, I can at least get it a little further along.
I opened the box to Smith Mountain Morning. It was so packed that it almost came flying out at me like a jack in the box.
I have only worked on this quilt for one day…the day of the retreat in Moline, Illinois two years ago! Just by looking at the box I can tell I sewed right up until the last minute and then I just threw what I had into the box. It looks like I have some sorting and counting to do before I can even attempt to know what I have going on. I won’t get this one finished before Bonnie’s new mystery starts but I am going to get the box sorted out and maybe just maybe I could at least get the star blocks done.
From the last I heard from my friend Nell (who started the whole challenge idea) she’s making great progress…so how are you doing? Stop back on Monday and I’ll give you a little progress report.
Each day leading up to Thanksgiving I write about something I am thankful for. Today’s thankful note is going to be in a separate post so check back later today to see it.
