Wonderful quilts y'all! I am working on extra blocks for the center. I made half of the units and now am making another row for a rectangular quilt. This one I totally want to redo in yardage. Most of them, I happily create only one, this one speaks to me.

Speaks to me too. Since I wrote all over the instructions, going to print another set.

I decided to put my borders together first. Might finish those today, then on to joining my sashing pieces with their matching QSTs.

I’m back at it today. I decided to just go back to everything that is missing, more or less in order. Thus, I am back working on Clue 2 (which is now completely cut out). If I can keep at it, I may have a finished top by February.

Just a suggestion….stay stitch the outside border before attaching to quilt. Soooo much easier.

I am slugging along on this too. Working on Clue 5, still have clue 2 to finish. Hopefully by spring, I will be done. I have such unrealistic expectations as to how long it will take to complete a clue. Wow, those folks who are done and quilted and bound can really stitch! Or maybe they don't have a little dog who always wants attention?

Even though I am making only half the blocks, I'm still just plodding along. I did expect a spring finish because that is how long the other mysteries have taken me. Not alot of sewing time either, I'll say my golden doodle requires my attention, too. She does but I may just be slow! Had to go back and make a few more pieces from clue one this afternoon. Glad to know I;m not alone!

Sewingpup and Suern3: I can totally relate. I too am plodding along and can blame some of it on needing to give my dog lots of attention. Yesterday, I finally finished a clue! Clue 2 is done and I am now plodding through Clue 3. Clue 1 is my leader/ender for the other clues. But at least I am moving forward. I think this is like running where Did Not Finish is still better than Did Not Start.

I'm another slow poke. It doesn't really bother me. I think some people are just set at a slower speed, and some at a faster speed. My father once said that I had three speeds . . . slow, slower, and slowest.
