There has been some time in the sewing room each day. Most of the effort has been on getting the binding stitched down on Back to Square One. That was finished last night. So that will be my last finish for 2015. No pictures yet as it was 10 PM when I finished the binding.
Like a lot of quilters, I started Bonnie Hunter's Allietare Mystery. And of course with all the holiday prep, fell way behind. So I've done just a bit of stitching in an effort to catch up. Still a long way to go on that front.
In the midst of those two projects, slow and steady progress has been made on the McCalls Mystery UFO from 2012.

I just need to sew the top three rows to the bottom three rows and then I can start piecing the border blocks. I haven't decided if I like this quilt or not. The border blocks have a lot of the dark blue, so it will change the look quite a bit. So I'm holding judgement till I get that on. This is a big quilt. Guess I should have paid more attention to finished size. My main goal with this project was to find a home for the 6 yards of the focus fabric. It had been in the stash for a while and I wanted to use it up. What's left will go on the back.
My Guy has promised me a break in the deep cleaning today since it's New Year's Eve. But that's so I can do some laundry and get the Christmas tree down. Still I hope to have some time for stitching this afternoon and evening as we wait for the ball to drop.
Linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday over at My Quilt Infatuation. Now it's time for that second cup of coffee while I go check out what people have going on this last day of 2015.
Have a happy New Year!
