Quiltathon - Evening of Day 1

Well, after my morning and afternoon of shop hopping you would think I would be too tired to sew. And truthfully I did need to take a break for dinner and a bit of a rest but then off to the machine I went. I was able to get another set of 32 strips sewn together for my scrappy bargello, this is panel 3. I've started on the strips for panel 4 and my plan for tomorrow is to complete the last two panels so I will have the center done. Then I will need to think about borders.

And as the leader/ender of this bargello I've been working on my Carolina Crossroads mystery. I finally have one of the blocks done! I haven't done the half square triangles for the star block yet, maybe I can do some of those tomorrow so I can put one of those blocks together. This has been a slow project but I plan on at least completing the top before the next mystery starts in April.

And finally, when I was tired of working at the machine I did some more hand piecing on these little hexagon blocks. I didn't do all these tonight (3 done tonight) but rather have been working on them off and on for the last couple of weeks.

Anyway, that's my Quiltathon update for Saturday (I see from the clock that it will already be Sunday when I post this! I am such a night owl!) More tomorrow!
