I am working on my Bonnie Challenge quilt. I never thought I would get it done but now I am beginning to think I will. If you don’t know about the Bonnie Challenge, several of us are working to complete a Bonnie Hunter UFO before the new mystery starts around Thanksgiving time. Mine was cut out but little sewing was done. Now I am this far!! My blocks are made entirely from shirts and the setting fabric is new fabric. I really love it and it has a real masculine feel to it. Plaids seem to do that. Now that I am this far it’s all I can do to not dive in and finish it. My goal is to have it into a top by Saturday. If I do finish this one, I am going to pull out another Bonnie Hunter UFO quilt and start working on it. I am on a roll…. Only problem, this is slowing me down…. Kelli and I are working on a project and this is part of it. I have lots of it cut out and even have 4 blocks sewn…I have 52 more to sew but that’s not bad and I love the fabric. It’s Soho Chic by Sandy Gervais for Moda. When I first saw the fabric I thought it had a black background but it doesn’t..it’s a deep chocolate brown. I really like it lots. As I cut the block it’s making some fun leftovers that I am itching to play with too. Oh for more time in the day. To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times. Today I am thankful for authors. So much of time is spent either reading books of listening to them as audiobooks. I love being carried away to someone else’s life even if only for a little bit. I love the escape from the here and now. I love seeing circumstances that make me feel more empathy to others. I can do all of that and be entertained by books. I love how books suck me into a story and make me wanting to know more. So today, I am thankful for authors.
