I did get in a solid afternoon of stitching yesterday. The focus was clues 5 and 6 of Good Fortune.
I'm hoping to make more progress today. Bonnie's been known to post the reveal on New Year's Day, so I'd like to have enough pieces to get a few blocks made right off the bat.
I'm able to concentrate on Good Fortune because this month's One Monthly Goal is finished. The binding was finished as of last Friday.
|Boo! (Halloween Mystery)|
designed by Carrie Randall (Quilter's Hideaway)
Started September 8, 2018, Finished December 28, 2018
This was a fun and quick project that used up some odds and ends from the stash. The bats got crystal button eyes cause My Guy said they needed something.
Those worked out pretty well. Trudy add some fun details during the quilting.
A spiderweb in the corner complete with spider.
And pumpkins in the last border that show up much clearer on the back.
I didn't have enough of the jack-o-lanterns fabric for the whole back so pieced in that yellow strip, which isn't quilt so pale in real life.
And the label's been stitched down too.
Boo! is finish number 4 for 2018. Since this project was started in 2018, it's not on the UFO list, so that number didn't go down. But getting it finished means it won't go on the list. So it's all good. Boo! was one of the quilts on my 2018 Finish Along List. So I'll be linking up when Q4 FAL Link UP opens in January.
It was a bit odd working on a Halloween quilt over the Christmas holiday. But now it's all finished and ready to use for next Halloween.
I'm hoping to end and begin 2019 in the sewing room. Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year with lots of new projects, finishes, and dwindling UFO lists.
