I found it difficult to choose my February One Monthly Goal because I have too many projects I want to finish right now so it was hard to narrow it down to just one project.
After a bit of mental debate, I chose Bonnie Hunter's Rhododendron Trail Quilt. I'd really like to finish up this project so I can feel free to start the next mystery quilt/sew along that comes along without feeling guilty for not finishing this one.
I've already finished all of the clues through 7. All I have left is clue 8, though it is a really labor-intensive step. There are many setting triangles and sashing to assemble then put together all the blocks and put on borders. It will likely take me several days to finish.
I've mostly decided to change the quilt design from Bonnie Hunter's design because several participants posted photos of their completed quilts with sashing using the geese and I really like the way they looked. It is more work to assemble the blocks with pieced sashing, so I may change my mind if I have too difficult a time getting points to line up.
Also, since I would like to add a print border, I may omit some of the blocks to make the overall size a little smaller.
Sounds like you've gotten a good start on it at least! Hope you're able to make decisions quickly and obtain that goal! It's a pretty quilt!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I keep changing my mind so who knows what the final layout will be. LOLDelete
That sashing is amazing. I can understand about switching things up. That's happening with me too. Ladies are posting their finished Nebula quilt tops with different layouts and they are all so lovely - which will I end up doing!?ReplyDelete
I'm still waffling on my final plan. I must just figure it out once I start sewing. LOLDelete
Great goal. I'm sure it will be lovely in the end. There are so many great variations to the mystery quilts.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It's a very doable goal if I don't get distracted.Delete
