It was cold and cloudy all weekend, perfect sewing room weather. I took advantage of that and spent all of Saturday afternoon in the sewing room. Saturday morning I braved the biting cold (the wind made being outside absolutely miserable) and finished my January One Monthly Goal.
The Red, White and Blue Stars quilt is all cleaned up, pressed, boxed and is now on it's way to Trudy for quilting. My January OMG was to get this project prepped and mailed. Hopefully that means my first finish for 2021 will happen in February.
Now that the RWB Stars is out of the sewing room for a few weeks, it was time to focus on something else. Rather than pull out a UFO to focus on, it seemed prudent to focus on the three mysteries that were started last year. I did pretty well at keeping up with Grassy Creek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter mystery. It's a typical Bonnie mystery with lots of pieces in each block. I've only got two blocks completed, with a third in progress. I have started finishing some of the sashing pieces as well.

I'm only making half the blocks. That should give me enough for a 3 x 4 layout. I'm hoping to at least have all the blocks made by the end of February.
Unity, Bonnie's coping with the pandemic mystery, is the current leaders and enders project. Since there was so much stitching this weekend, it moved along as well.

The first border in the next round is more than half done at this point. Once Grassy Creek is assembled and out for quilting, Unity will be the next focus project. It's time to get it finished and off the big design wall.
