March Progress on the Let's Book It Challenge

It's almost the end of March, so it's time to check in with Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts for this month's Let's Book it Challenge.  


My Let's Book it Challenge project has been a long term project.  Poinsettias was started back in March of 2014.  Long term project indeed!  To be fair  it also doubles as my leaders and enders project, so it's not on the fast track to being completed.  But since I've been making an effort to get into the sewing room more in 2016, progress seems to go be moving faster.

Six of the nine blocks are assembled. The sashing for this quilt is also pieced, so there is still a ways to go yet.  Once I get Allietare into a finished flimsy, Poinsettias will probably take over the design wall and become the focus project for the month.  That probably won't happen till June or July.  But I do hope to get this one to at least the finished flimsy stage by the end of the year.  There are at least 2 potential Let's Book It projects waiting in the wings.  So I won't be at a loss when this one is done. I've already picked out a new leaders and enders project too, so I'm ready to get this one done.

  3. This quilt is very pretty, I like it! I find I like a quilt better when I take my time to make her. When I try to make a 'hurry-up' quilt, it never turns out quite like I wanted her to because I was in a hurry. Blessings, Gretchen
