Design Wall Monday - December 2nd

I'm not really ready for Monday.   I was off all last week, so that makes it hard to get back into the groove this morning.  Even more so because this work week is packed full with end of the year stuff. 

Even though I was off, we spent a lot of the week visiting family. That means not a lot got done in the sewing room.  I did manage to finish the first block for the Starburst Quilt along.

Neutral Gems has been progressing a few blocks at a time.  More than half the blocks are finished now.

Pattern is "Gems" by Donna Lynn Thomas

I didn't get as far on Back to Square One as I had hoped.  Only two of the star blocks for the last pieced border are completed.

Bonnie Hunter's new mystery started up on Friday.  I've got the fabric now, but it still needs to be washed before I can start cutting. Hopefully that will happen sometime this week. 

That's it for what's up on my design wall this week. For more pretties, check out the links over at Patchwork Times.

You got some complicated gems done this week considering you were busy spending time with family. I wish I had your patience !
