Took put an old UFO yesterday with a Bonnie Hunter pattern. So many fiddly pieces! So many seams. And its not coming together well - which it why I think I UFOed it in the first place. - I don't like her pattern (end grumpy gus). 2 more blocks to go.

Thanks to "retiredteacher09," "Conchalea" and congratulations on your move, "sewbizgirl," and "Rryder" (Rob), thank you for your kind words and prayers. Praying that the virus numbers don't change as much as they predict and everyone stay safe and have a happy holiday.

Stay safe everyone

Rff1010, your post made me laugh. I sometimes feel ill-tempered when working on a BH pattern, and yet I keep going back for more, LOL.

Cherry....be safe in your move. Georgia is a lovely place. Much of my family (mainly mama) lives there I travel often.

Conchalea....so happy for you, too! I guess you sold your house after the first escrow took a dump. Exciting!

Rff....I do not do BH patterns. Not my style and I have enough in my life to drive me to drink. Lol...

I'm on the borders of quilting garden Quilt. This baby is almost done. Yah!

2 UFOs finished! I feel so relieved. Both are for charity.

Just and update on progress here. I pulled out my unfinished Farmer's Wife quilt last weekend and counted up my progress. I got 11 blocks done this Labor Day Week-end week-end that gives me 71 of the 110 blocks. I call that progress.

Good for you! I can't wait to see that one. I, similarly, pulled out my stack of FW 1930's blocks (6") and started putting them together with a little sashing. So... great minds think alike! I made the blocks about 3-5 years ago, when the QAL was going on here. I had forgotten how sweet these little blocks were.

In the mean time I've also started FW Pony Club blocks. Hopefully I can get back to those soon, too.

Here is what I finished this long week-end. Progress, and I did one more today, not in the photo below. . Yes, there is one block that needs to be redone because it has no contrast. Another day. I now have 72 finished and one cut for tomorrow. Less than 40 to go! https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/shock.png

Sewbiz, you are way ahead of me. I started mine in 2014 also. It must have been the quilt to do that year! Would love to see progress photos for inspiration.
