I did get in some stitching. All the rows of Geek Chic are sewn together, so that much got wrapped and given to the SIT with her other gifts. She loved it. Now to get the border on it and get the backing pieced so it can go out for quilting. There wasn't time for photos before it was wrapped, hopefully I'll have some later this week.
Two more Perkioman Valley blocks from the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild were finished.
So these four will go out in the mail to Carol over at From My Carolina Home to be used in quilts for the California Thomas Fire victims.
After playing around with the block pieces for Bonnie's On Ringo Lake mystery and staring at the options on the design wall, I finally decided to just make the blocks according to her directions.

The fabric choices this year didn't work really well. The gray is really too dark and doesn't show up against the black and boy the yellow really dominates the block. It does look better with the sashing strips added. I'll use up the pieces that are already made and see how many blocks that makes and go from there.
Linking up with the usual suspects for the Monday post:
Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Linky Party
