Well, some order, anyway. Here is the state of some of the projects I've been working on over the New Year.
This is the mystery from QTMysteryQuilts yahoo group. The sashing strips are cut and ready to attach. I have to check my theory on the sashing to determine if there are corner stones or not. I have 16 1.5" black squares left I think, so I suspect that's what they are used for. I'm really happy with how this quilt came out. I almost bailed on it, when the pre-cutting instructions said to cut over 400 1.5" squares. But I held off and managed to strip piece the first couple of steps instead of fiddling with little tiny pieces. With that adjustment, things were much easier/quicker, and I'm glad I did this mystery.
www.patchworktimes.com) Tell it to the Stars mystery. One more border to add, but I haven't decided which colour to use yet. The one she recommends is my least favourite colour in this quilt (only picked because I had enough fabric - and now I see why it needed the quantity she called for). The outer border is supposed to be the dark beige-y colour in the pieced border. But I'm considering using one of the purples instead. I might have picked the yellow, but I don't have enough of that left.
No pictures of the about.com mystery yet. I'm still assembling blocks on that one. And Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion is waiting for design wall space once I get the red/black/white quilt off it.
