I like both these variations.

 

I’ve been looking at finishing another ufo, unfortunately I can’t find one of the fabrics I require to complete a few more blocks. Why isn’t it in the bag with the completed blocks and other fabric? Good question, I wish I knew! It’s a two fabric quilt so I can’t really use an alternative, I’ll just have to keep digging.

Still a bit busy but some blank spaces seem to improve the design by giving the eye somewhere to rest.

I’m liking the secondary design here.

I think this design is just a little bit busy. Interesting though!

After much sewing yesterday and today I have finally sewn all the components together and I finally have a flimsy. It is a handsome quilt, not pretty but I do like it. You could almost say it has a masculine feel to it but there is a bit of ‘floral’ happening in some of the light background fabrics.

I have enough of the dark blue border fabric left to make some pillow cases, if I can find the enthusiasm. I don’t think I will lol.

I’m still working away slowly on my Double Delight. I’m very happy with the dark blue fabric I chose for the setting triangles. Originally I thought I might use a light blue but I found the dark blue really made the centre pop. I hope to have the top completed this week woopee!! The light blue in the picture is actually a lot more subtle in real life.

A combination of some of my last blocks in a quilt.

This week I purchased some fabric for the setting triangles and outer border of my Bonnie Hunter Double Delight. Today I stitched several rows together and discovered I am 8 alternate blocks short. I knew I was missing a few but I thought it was 3 or 4. I think when I was tidying up in my work room over the last few weeks that I’ve cut some of the fabric into 2.5″ squares. I can’t even remember where my ‘constant’ fabric for the little 9 patches is. Oh no, this is going to be one tricky finish to a ufo. As for the new mystery starting shortly, well I’ve decided that’s a definite no for me.

How many Bonnie quilts have you started? How many finishes? I know they are very popular and I love them but there is so much work in them. Still I love a good scrap quilt!
