On Wednesday Nell and I challenged you all to pull out one of you Bonnie projects whether it be a UFO or new project and work really hard on it until the new mystery comes out at Thanksgiving. If you missed that blog entry, you can read it here.
The plan is to have a linky party each Saturday so you can link up and show your progress. If you’re a non blogger you can leave a comment in the comment section.
Wednesday I pulled out all of my projects and did a lot of debating. Which one did I want to do….I honestly would LOVE to dive head first into Pineapple Crazy but I know that is a project I can’t set aside very easily and I will need to as I still have a couple things on my burner that need attention.
I finally settled on….Stars Over Shallotte. It’s from Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green.
Everything is cut out except the setting pieces and borders. I don’t have anything planned for that yet either.
I have this BIG container of half square triangles that need some trimming. I think the pattern said 16 are needed per block and there are 28 full blocks. That’s 448 that need to be trimmed not counting the ones for the half blocks. These are all left overs from when I made Bonnie’s Hand Me Downs quilt.
I am not hopeful that I’ll get it finished by Thanksgiving but I will give it a try.
If you need some inspiration on a project to try, I’ve made many…you can see some here.
How about you?? Did you pick a project? Are you playing along? I know Nell (who started this all) has her blocks for Fair and Square all ready to be assembled. Ready…Set…GO!! I’ll see you all back here next Saturday where you can show off your progress!!
