I spent Saturday working on the sewing room-more on that later this week. In the process I ended up finding several things that I am trying to decipher. Maybe you can help.
Last year in December I already had most of the farm house packed up. In my sewing room everything was packed up except my Bonnie Hunter quilt books and my boxes that held my stash users fabric that was already cut up into strips.
I was spending long days at this house working to try to get it ready to move but in the evenings I’d come home and sew for a bit just to relieve the stress of it all. Well I found that box that contained all the things I was working on…only problem, I didn’t label it all when it got packed away. I found myself trying to figure out what projects I started.
I haven’t compared my notes to the quilt books yet but I am making guesses. I think this tote is filled with segments with 3 – 2″ squares sewn together. I think this is for the border for Cheddar Bow Ties from Bonnie Hunter’s More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. Hmm…I’m not even sure how to decipher my note. It almost looks like I had three different projects in mind. It looks like one project needed 228- one needed 100 and one needs 700. It looks like I have over 400 made. Hmmm….any guesses?
This I am sure is for Santa Fe String Star from Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book.
I am sure this is for Narragansett Blues from Bonnie Hunter’s More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. I remember making lots of four patches but I didn’t remember cutting out the blue sections too. I guess this one is reader to sew together.
I have a Ziplock filled with these…. I think these might be for the border for Narragansett Blues. I’ll have to count the segments in the first photo because I think some of them might be for this border too.
Then there are loads and loads of four patches. I wonder what I had intended them for. I wonder if I have enough for whatever it was. They are four patches. They are made from 2″ square pieces. They are for a Bonnie Hunter quilt. Any guesses on what they might be for?
Apparently I must have been pretty stressed with the remodeling of the house last year because I got LOTS of sewing done. I started LOTS of projects that are now in UFO status. I think it’s time that a few this get another step closer to completion.
If you have any ideas on what these goodies might be for, let me know…right now it’s really a puzzle for me. The good thing…these are all typical units that Bonnie Hunter designs with so even if I don’t make the originally intended project it’s no real loss.
