Nothing finished this week

Nothing finished, but I did start 2 new projects … oh why oh why do I do this????  … I guess I like the idea of a mystery (thanks to Bonnie Hunter) and I like creating and Christmas is coming.

Quilt # 13 is webbed together, and has taken the back seat for now …

The mystery quilt … I have quite a few neutral 4 patches done (mostly as leaders & enders),  a bunch more to sew together.  The next clue is today … and I’ll be pulling fabric for it.

Creating a Christmas gift for the dearest, sweetest person I know … (I’ll post a picture after it’s gifted!)

I’m going to a “quilt ’til you wilt” tonight & hope to get some sewing done … along with visiting and laughing and eating pizza!

Quilt #13 progress …

nov-2716-1

I have 32 9-patches done … only 81 more to go …

To me, it seems like super SLOW process on Quilt #13, but I did make a demo craft for our December guild meeting and made the project for our secret Santa gifts. I wanted to get these done as I will be out of town for the week prior to the meeting.  This is the 2nd year that I’ve done the secret Santa.  We hand in a baggie with the equivalent of 2 fat quarters and we receive someone else’s fabric back. Then we’re challenged to make something with the fabric!  I’d love to show you what I made, but then it wouldn’t be a secret, would it?

Surprise surprise, I bit the bullet … as usual … and have started the Bonnie Hunter mystery “En Provence.”  I need a ton of neutral 4 patches … I have 3 done and a bunch of ‘twosies” to sew into 4 patches … then I’ll start cutting into my neutral yardage until I have enough completed!
