You might remember earlier this week that I wrote a blog post about finding quilt pieces but not knowing what they were for….well wonder no more. I figured it out and now everything is labeled.
There were LOTS of 2″ squares sewn into 3 unit segments. These are for the border of Cheddar Bow Ties. I may have the border pieces done but I have LOTS of bow ties that need to be sewn. I do have all of the cheddar cut..not all of the ties. I have 130 of the 729 finished. Wow..that’s lots of ties that I still need.
I have lots of four patches. Some were from Narragansett Blues. This is now packaged and entirely ready to be sewn into a quilt top.
There were MANY more 4 patches and I figured out they were intended for Four Patch X. I have 225 of the 360 needed for the quilt. I am making mine a row and column larger than the original quilt. I do have lots of twosies sewn together so I’ll keep sewing on them and make the rest of the 4 patches as my leader and ender project. I need to purchase some yellow for the background.
I had more 3 pieced units sewn together. I saw a note on the paper that was keeping my tally that said nines. I am sure that this is the quilt I had intended to start. Right now I only have 115 or the 783 segments needed but if I wanted it wouldn’t take long to whip up the rest. I already have a whole bin of 2″ strips just waiting for attention.
Can you believe I also started Santa Fe String Star? I have 75 of the 200 string pieced diamonds done. I have papers ready to sew the rest as well as a pile of finished ones that need their papers pulled off of. This week over a couple days I managed to get the pieces for the flying geese border cut out. I need to figure out what I am going to use for the red back ground.
WOW. Can you believe I started ALL OF THESE last year over a few weeks time? I can’t. What was I thinking?…apparently I was thinking I wanted to make LOTS of Bonnie Hunter quilts and attack my scraps.
There isn’t a one that I am sad I started. I like them all.
I still need to finish up Garden Party…and remember I just started Wild Child? Looks like I have lots of Bonnie quilts in my future…Oh, and then the newest issue of Quiltmaker came…and what does it have? Yet another Bonnie Hunter quilt I would to make.
Ah….that’s the life a gal who loves scrap quilts. I might as well give in and go with it rather than fight it.
By the way…come next week I think I’ll start hosting a “finish a Bonnie Hunter quilt” challenge. I’ve done it the last two years. Readers just pick a Bonnie Hunter UFO or new project and try to finish it up before the start of the new mystery. That gives us about six weeks to work on the quilt to try to finish it. If you want to join us, start checking out your UFOs and see which one you might want to try to finish.
You can see I have several to choose from…and I actually have a few more too. See you here next week and we’ll kick off the challenge.
