Weekend Stitching: Steady Progress

It was a good weekend to stay in and sew, which is pretty much what I did. British Baking on Netflix and a few cups of coffee, made for some very relaxing stitching time.  

First on the list was round two of borders for the Christmas Angels quilt. 

Christmas Angels, Pattern by Kate

The quilt is really straight, the photo was taken at an odd angle as the quilt has gotten to big to photograph easily.  Just one more beige border and it will be time to add the final dark green border.  So I'm on track with my February One Monthly Goal.  

The Good Fortune blocks had to come down to put up the Angels flimsy. 

Good Fortune, 2019 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

As the number of blocks on the design wall increase, the better I like it.  I've decided to go for a 5 X 7 block layout.  So I'm just over half way done with making the blocks. 

Lastly, I finished the 4th red Wild and Goosey block.

 Modified Wild and Goosey
Based on Bonnie Hunter's pattern in Addicted to Scraps

So I could lay them out to see how one block is going to look.  I'm really happy with how these are working out.  I need to get started on making some yellow ones this week.  

That's pretty much it from the sewing room.  I am hoping to take my bonus day off this Friday, but with everything going on at work, that may not happen.  Fingers crossed there.

Beautiful projects, all of them. I really like the fabrics you chose for the second one (name flew right out of my head).

Sometimes I wish I had a second design wall so I wouldn't have to take blocks for one project down in order to work on another!

Christmas Angels is such a pretty quilt! I really like the piecing that gives the curved effect. Glad you're getting the chance to move this one along!

Looks like you made a lot of progress! I love the Good Fortune.

Your Good Fortune is Good Looking! If you're enjoying it, I'd encourage you to make the full 7x7 layout, 49 blocks. The math on the borders doesn't work right otherwise, so if you do 5x7 be prepared to make changes on the final border or have some of your inner borders be asymmetrical. If you haven't sewn the outer border blocks yet, consider waiting until the little 2" triangles are used before you decide what to do :)
