January 14th, 2018 - The Stash

Nothing really new here. I’ve been working on Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt, On Ringo Lake and I’m only just finished Part 2. Holy mackerel, it took forever to finish. And the next part has even more pieces. Looks great though! I’m really anxious to see the colours all together. I decided to stick with Bonnie’s colour choices. I’ve seen some other colourways and I like Bonnie’s colours the best.


Here’s a peek at my pieces. I want to hurry up and make some of the blocks with just the aqua and brown. I did use 2.91 yards for Part 1 and 2  and there has been nothing added. Hopefully next week, I will have the final totals for this quilt.

I’m linking up my stash busting at Quilt Paint Create.


I also joining “15  Minutes to Stitch” with Kate over at Life in Pieces. I’ve excelled at sewing this week. I’ve  managed to sew for 20 hours and 35 minutes. And I’m just starting Part 3! You’d think I was a really slow sewer but I’m not. First I had to pick my fabrics, then I needed to press them, then I made Part 1 and then Part 2 which took me a couple of days. And I actually cut some pieces for the other parts too.

Another cold week. Stay warm.  Stay in and sew!

    Bonnie’s quilts aren’t know for being shy on pieces. You’ve made great progress. Congrats on finding time to sew. It always amazes me how long it takes to make progress, even when you have hours to play. Thanks for linking up this week.

    Congratulations on your persistence on Bonnie’s mystery quilt. Little by little you will get there. I passed this year, but I love the colors she chose this time too.
