    I think it is when you run out of bobbin thread and just keep sewing.
    I have about 1/2 of clue 5 stitched, looks like they are coming out right on so won't have to trim
    They look like star points so perhaps there is a star block in our future

    Following this, your colors are all so beautiful. I'm saving the pdf files for later sewing as I saw this late.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I have about 7 I have to redo, they came out too small! Weird! I did have several that needed to be sliver cut - but a pretty easy step. I wonder what she has in store for us this week, I bet it will be a lot more work!!!

    Did you see part 6? She said we are flying to the finish...does anyone know when this is supposed to end? Just trying to get an idea of how close we are. I'm plugging away but several steps behind...going to cut more units to get myself caught up. I haven't started step 5 but most of the other steps are in progress in various stages.

    I'm working on step 4 right now -- way behind! But I hope to get caught up by the next step, however I think she will be posting that on Monday, so perhaps not caught up but maybe I'll have the end in sight. I'm tempted to just cut 3.5" squares from various b/w fabrics instead of piecing them as step 6 shows. That would get me caught up quicker. I had determined to keep up with this one, but life took over as usual.

    Wow Step 6 seems simple. I am running out of black material. LOL. She said that Clue 7 will be posted New Years Day. I wonder if that is the last one before we put this puppy together???????
    Well I am going to try to get my embroidery machine up and going today. We'll see how that one goes. Then I will cut out my Clue 6 while the embroidery machine does it thing.

    Did you get a new embroidery machine for Christmas urgodschild? That will be a new fun toy for you!

    Yes, Clue 7 New Years Eve, wow that is different for her! She also mentioned a RAPID FIRE FINISH! Maybe she will give us all the information we need to put this baby together all at once? She usually drags that out for several weeks too, leaving you in suspense longer!

    When watching quilt cam a couple of days ago she slipped up and said she still had to write out steps 6, 7, & 8. So I'm guessing that's all we have this time. I know she's been trying to keep the step numbers secret sk I don't know if this was a slip or if she's just trying to trick us lol. I have all the way through step 5 done in mine and hope to work on step 6 some this weekend but DH doesn't like it when I go missing when he's home so might have to wait until Monday and be a little behind sin e she is giving us the next step then.

    Yea! I think I am FINALLY caught up. I've managed to stay about a half a step behind since about Clue 3. But here it is! You can't see them in the photo, but I have cut out all the green triangles too (except I'm using yellow). I can't wait to do something with that last color. I too somehow managed to make a bunch of extra double bricks, and somehow cut about twice as many of the purple (mine are pink) "wings" for Clue 5. I was kind of hoping maybe I would wind up needing them for another step, but it's sounding like there won't be too many more steps. Maybe I can use them in a pieced border. And in true Bonnie style, I made lots of little "bonus" HSTs in step 5 (they aren't in the photo). They are tiny, barely 1 1/4", but I will use them in the border somewhere.

    Love your colors scraplady! Looking at yours I realize that I need to sew my bw flying geese to my purple and turquoise flying geese...whooops...Anyone want to give me advice on trimming? I've never done precise trimming before.

    I use a ruler on top of the piece I'm trimming, lining it up as square as I possibly can with the 3 1/2x 2 inch lines on the ruler and trim the overhang on two sides using my rotary cutter. Turn the piece 180 degrees and line up the Inside corners you've just trimmed with the correct lines on the ruler and once again trim the overhang. There might be some where you have to fudge a little if the geese wings have gone wonky and they aren't quite large enough but usually I can make something like that work if it's only a thread or two width off. It can be a tedious process but it does make the next piecing step easier to keep on target and the final block come out the size you intended. Have fun!

    Xtgirl and Scraplady -- impressive! I'm still working on step 3. I feel like the little train that could as the mountain of unfinished products is getting higher and higher, but I can, I can, I....

    No Idid not get a new machine. I have had this machine for 6 years and never used it. So I tried yesterday. I have a large hoop and I wanted to do a small embroidery design and it was way too much material for a little thing. Pluse the machine did something wonky so I gave up. I put everything away and then I discovered when I put the module away that I have all the different size hoops in there. Who knew???? Probably should have looked in that darn pocket. So I will be trying again to make smaller designs. LOL. I am finished with all my clues. I believed she said to check on New Years and then the last one was going to be next Friday.

    Clue 7 was up this morning, and evidently the 8th and FINAL will be posted tomorrow! What happened to a week between steps? I did wonder when she said she would be on the road again come January, if it was going to wrap up pretty quick. I can't wait to see what the finished quilt will look like. I think I'm seeing some stars in the future?
