Get ready...get set...get retreat ready!
Tuesday night was the evening for Kurlykues. I have a 108 of these done, but I need a bunch more, 148 to be exact. This was a project started in 2011...intended as a leader and ender...and a challenge with Bonnie Hunter. The challenge was to guess how many Bonnie would have done in a year. I think someone actually guessed exactly. If you've been on her blog you will remember the cute bowtie pattern. It is a little block only 3.5" unfinished. I never much liked bowtie projects, but making the blocks smaller got me motivated! I leader and ender on each of the projects I work on so bringing in a second project doesn't work for me. Instead I cut the pieces when I have the right stash then sew up everything I have at the time. Wait until I have a bunch more to work on and repeat. Since I want to get the project done I'll cut a little bit of each of the blues and cheddars to finish the project. My project should end up 48" x 48". This cheddar fabric I got in the Sale Room at Rosie's should handle the back...if not I'll add some blue. After all it is a project that's meant to use stash!
This instructions for this cute bowtie pattern can be found on Bonnie's Quiltville website under Free Patterns! called Cheddar Bow-Ties.
Later this evening I'll be getting Krayons in order.
