Saturday was busy with Science Fair and a bit of furniture shopping. We finally found a replacement for my recliner that doesn't make my back hurt. At the moment the only places I can sit more than a few minutes without discomfort are my computer desk chair and my sewing room chair. Sunday was pretty much a stay at home laundry and sewing day. That made for a very relaxing and productive Sunday afternoon in the sewing room. The last of the borders were added so Magnolia Mystery is now a finished flimsy.

I'm pretty happy with how it came out. It's definitely bright. Now to get the backing pieced. I had hoped to have enough of the background fabric to use as the backing, but I'm going to be short there. So I need to raid the stash for something else to supplement. My OMG was to get both the top and the backing made. I still have a few days to make that happen. We'll see how that goes.
Also up on the design wall this weekend are five blue sawtooth star blocks.
These are the border blocks for one of my previous Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. I need sixty something blocks for the border so I've been making these 4" x 5" blocks in whatever the RSC color of the month is. I'd finished the purple blocks for February, but hadn't gotten to five blue ones in January. It was good to get caught up this month.
