Bonnie Challenge Update November 16, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Last weekend I finished my Leader/Ender spools quilt top. That was my goal for the Bonnie Challenge issued by Jo over at Jo’s Country. But there are two more weeks in the challenge. So I need to figure out what to work on.
My Blue Ridge Beauty needs borders – but I don’t have anything appropriate for borders in my stash and I need to work from stash for a bit.
Orca Bay, the mystery from what – 2 years ago – is still in a million pieces. I’ve got to finish the string piecing before I can assemble the blocks. This would be good to work on — if I wasn’t in the middle of a project with a deadline. I really need something I can use for leader/enders. String piecing doesn’t seem conducive to that.
So, what other Bonnie quilt tops do I have in progress. Oh — Scrappy Trips and Rectangle Wrangler. But those are out too.
Scrappy Trips is my treadle project –
and Rectangle Wrangle I haven’t settled on the constant fabric let alone cut enough strips – although I think I have more than these:
So, what’s a quilter to do but flip through all her Bonnie books and look through Bonnie’s Free Patterns to find something that will work with my pre-cut pieces or can be quickly cut so I can have a leader/ender project.
I have said in the past “Anymore it drives me crazy not to have a L&E stack by my sewing machine!”
I’m going to give myself maybe two more hours to figure this out and get some fabric lined up for my L&E project then it will be back to the deadline quilt.
In the meantime, check out how overs are doing with their Bonnie Challenge.
