More Frolicking

It was a busier weekend than I expected, so not as much sewing time as I had anticipated.  We had a 50th birthday party to attend on Sunday.  It was a very small gathering with everyone wearing masks when we weren't eating.  I made the birthday girl a couple of masks (her son appropriated the Oklahoma State U mask I made her, so I made her a new one).  I didn't get them finished till right before we had to leave so no photos.  

The only other blog worthy stitching was finishing the first black border for Frolic. 

Frolic, 2019 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt


The flying geese to the right to it are part of the next border.  Those pieces are actually made from two HSTs. There's a stack of blue HSTs that need to be sewn together as well. I didn't finish that step of the mystery, so won't be duplicating Bonnie's border.  


This is the plan for the rest of the borders. This week will likely be spent in getting all those HSTs sewn together.  

That's the project on my large design wall this week. You can check out other quilty show and tells over at Monday Making, Monday Design Wall and Main Crush Monday.

Frolic is looking great! I love your plan for the border. I should pull mine out again soon and see how many HSTs I got done.

I really like your border design for Frolic. It's a lot of work but it will be so worth it. Here's hoping you have more quilty time this week.

Thanks for sharing your progress. I love the flying geese in the 2 corners!

Barbara said...

So pretty. I love what you’re doing with the borders.

Ooh, I really like the asymmetry that the geese in the border are going to give to the design. I hope you can get the HSTs together this week.

Oooooh! I've been following the progress of your Frolic. The border plan is super!

I really, really like your border!!!!
If I didn't have my frolic finished, I'd be copying it!
Awesome job!

Bonnie's quilt designs are piecing heavy, so I think simplifying the last borders is a good option. Looking very good!

That flying geese border is going to be fantastic. It looks great with the quilt and is a bit unexpected - I like it a lot! Great job Kate!

I love the flying geese detail, something different and unusual.

Love your border design. It's going to be great. Your Frolic is beautiful!!!

Amazing how just a single border starts to really bring the finished quilt into focus. Something about the jagged edges of the main blocks smoothing out, I guess :)

Zenia Rene said...

Wow! Frolic is fantastic! Isn’t it awesome that there is more than one way to make a block? The flying geese in the next border will look amazing.
