    Teen: I’m looking forward to see your quilted project. Nice that you were able to use up some fabric. Keeping my fingers crossed that you have enough teal to bind.

    Teen: Have you used Edyta’s binding method where your strips are cut at 1.75”, it works well and you still have a double fold on the edge. Here is a link to watch, I have used it a couple times recently.

    Wow, that was fun to watch thimblebug! I'm going to try it! Thank you!

    I have the last two final borders to sew and I'll be done with my flimsy!

    I haven't done a BH in a few years but I do love looking at the pictures of all of them. It's amazing how the all look beautiful and all different!

    I just looked at my progress on this mystery. I do not have a single part completed. On part 1, I miss calculated on the number of 9-patches needed and I need to iron the strips to make 12 more blocks. On step 2, I’m 1/4 way done. On part 3, I’m 1/2 way done and haven’t started on parts 4-7. I’m using the puppy excuse. He’s 6 months old and a ball full of energy. He’s like a five year old. Today I plan to finish sewing part 1 & 2. Thursday complete. part 3 and Friday complete part 4. Then over the weekend and going into next week put the top together. I like the colors and just want to get it finished before the end of Next week.

    I’m enjoying seeing all of the beautiful completed and mostly completed quilts.

    flimsey finished. I'm calling it "Barely Call It Chilhowie". I don't think I left anything alone, but I like it.
    And not too bad having been made from kit fabric. I still have a lot of the white and mottled purple left.
    The 9 patches/X-blocks are hinky, but I know how to make them for real if I want the effect again, these were
    reformatted when already finished.

    And a full block, all the goose border, and some extra pieces if anyone wants them.

    Have been thinking about why so many have said "easier this year".
    She used to design them queen size and gave components numbers accordingly. I remember on Roll Roll Cotton Boll one week's clue was 700+ 2.5" unfinished 1/2 square triangle blocks. I think the most units we made in one clue here was 98? or something like that. Now they are smallerish and people can upsize them if they want.

    And getting the main block finished midway was brilliant and I think why there have been so many finishes.
    See you next year )
