Work on Multiple Projects

      Friday was a cold day here so it was a great day to sew.  I pieced on several quilt projects. 
 On New Year’s Day Bonnie Hunter surprised me by posting the final step and layout for the CelticSolstice Mystery.    Some participants were not surprised, and I can’t believe that one even had her quilt together by January 3rd.  I am working on my blocks along with other projects but will hold off on my reveal until her Monday link-up so I will have more blocks complete. 

    As my leader / ender  ( If you want to find out more about what leader / enders are, check out Bonnie's explanation  ),  I am sewing components for Tula Pink’s“Stacks” quilt  
 I saw on “Sewing with Nancy”.  I have seen a couple of designer’s versions of this type quilt and wanted to try one.  I thought it would make an interesting comfort quilt.  Here is my first block 18” block together. 

In between other piecing (as leader / enders) I added sashing to the improve blocks and have them ready for a border.   I plan on using a black border, but I’m still looking through my stash for the right one. 

   Today is supposed to be another very cold day for Columbia so another great day to sew.

  1. Black border will really make those blocks POP! I'm in a very cold Columbia today as well. Just 8 degrees this morning with a dusting of snow. It's going to be a sewing day for me, with television reruns in the back ground.
