The freezing drizzle stopped over night, but it's still very, very slick. Offices are closed again today, probably because the parking lots are pretty much ice skating rinks. Even though offices are closed, I'm still expected to work from home virtually, so I'm still limited to stitching this evening after work. I'm OK with that and just thankful I don't have to get out in the cold today.
The To Do List from last week included only three items. All three are in the block making stage, which for the Bonnie Hunter mystery projects can take a bit.
Weekly To Do For 2/2/2021
- Grassy Creek: Assemble blocks ✔
- Morewood Mystery: Start February clue ✔
- Unity: Make HSTs for clue 6 as leader and ender ✔
There was good progress on all three to do's, but each project still needs quite a bit of work before they are finished quilt tops. This week's to do list is pretty much the same as last week's.
Weekly To Do for 2/9/2021
Grassy Creek: Continue making blocks and assembling rows
|Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt|
All the sashing and border subunits are completed, but I still need to assemble 4 blocks. I ran out of the gray/yellow HSTs used in the corners of the block, So those have been added back to the pile of bits and pieces at the sewing machine. The goal is to just keep assembly moving along.
Morewood Mystery: Continue piecing block B

One block B is fully assembled and is up on the design wall with block A. There's not enough up on the design wall yet to get a sense of the full quilt layout. I'm really happy with my fabric choices, hopefully I'll like the final quilt just as well. The plan here is just to keep assembling blocks.
Unity: Continue making HSTs for Clue 6 as leaders and enders

As I get the HSTs finished, I'll make a block for clue 7. One border strip has been sewn to the top, but with Grassy Creek up on the big design wall, I don't have a good spot to photograph the progress. Again the goal is just a bit of progress each week.
