Good news! I had a very productive night tonight... wow after squaring up all of these units I'm amazed at all the many Bonnie fans who have labored to make the past mystery quilts she's created... I thought I'd never get done squaring these boogers up - and this is just for a "throw size"
I really have a whole new appreciation for all you who have gone before me in the Bonnie mysteries ;) WOW! Tonight I kept telling myself, if they can do it - so can I ;)
This is the "Gold" fabric that I pulled yesterday that I thought would go perfectly with the green and black fabrics..... only today I read over the fabric yardage - and it calls for 1 & 3/8s yard.... and my gold is only 35" :( and sadly I do not remember where or when I bought it....? Maybe last year when I was in KY visiting Granny's Attic?? I'll send Karen an email and attach this photo - I'll cross my fingers, legs and toes.... :P
Until I hear back from Ms. Karen - guess I can get started on my unit 1 blocks -the scrappy 4-patches... which I'm hosting a swap for over on the HGTV boards :) the big question for me is... do I want to use those 3 fabrics in the photo above.... in the 4-patches??? or perhaps some of these noodles I have here below???
scrappy - two lights with two dark fabrics... hummm what would you do?
Guess I'll sleep on it and decide tomorrow... I'm still waiting on my White on White fabrics I ordered from Keepsake Quilting... so until they arrive Christmas Lights is at the top of my list of things to do...
Christmas Lights Part 1 Progress Report:
- Unit 1 = scrappy 4-patches - what I'll work on next...
- Unit 2 = DONE :)
- Unit 3 = waiting on finding more of my gold or a new gold...
- Unit 4 = DONE :)
- Unit 5 = DONE :)
06/11/09 EDITED TO ADD: My friend Crazyboutquilts emailed me a link to my fabric I'm looking for!!! Whooo hooo! Thanks Sandie! and I'm double excited that it is on the Joann's website - that means I can use a coupon for it too! ;) Thank you!
