Krossfire, 2011 UFO
Jumping Jax Flash by Judy Niemeyer
Krossfire is coming along just great.  These colors are WILD together.  There are lots more of Corner Unit A and B to be made still.  I spent quite a while after dishes were cleaned from dinner cutting more shapes in the teal fabrics.  There are only two 2011 UFOs left to complete...trying hard to get them finished.  Both are Judy Niemeyer designs.  At this time it is looking like I might get this one done.  I am not so certain the second one will be finished.  I have one more commissioned quilt to get done before December and two more 2013 UFOs.  Goodness its the last days of October...where has 2013 gone?

All of the Corner Unit A and Bs were sewn this weekend at a retreat I attended.  There is a spiky border that will use light and dark teals to be added to the project.  I will be moving the block centers around a bit to even out the colors.

So are you going to make Bonnie Hunter's 2013 Mystery, Celtic Solstice?  Will you make it in the suggested colors or go out on a limb?  I'm going to stay with Bonnie once again.  I may have to shop a bit though...  I've used over 300 yards this year so I figure I can treat myself if Mom's stash won't get me there!

Happy Halloween Week!

Another great quilt in the works. If I have anything you need, just let me know, would love to share.
Beautiful start to a lovely quilt.

You have been so stinkin' productive this year, Sandi (as always)!! And this is another drop-dead-gorgeous quilt!!

It's beautiful!! You've inspired me so much this year!

I'm still hoping you get to Kurry, though I did finish my Briar Patch a couple of months ago, so instead of using you for tips on that one, I'll be watching to see how yours turns out! I don't know if I can post a pic to here of it...would love to share it with you!

The colours sure are wild - but don't they look great? You must be so pleased. Yes, I am gearing p for Bonnie's Mystery Quilt, but going off piste with the colours.

Here....I've changed my avatar to hopefully show that Briar Patch.

Also...I'm tempted to do the Bonnie Hunter quilt, too...but my stash doesn't seem to want to support it.

Cheers!

Judy Niemeyer's quilts are a spectator sport for me. I love to look at them, but don't like to do paper piecing. I suppose some day if I really, really want the effect...
Your looks good.

What colors will you choose? Nov 29th is just around the corner. I still need to pull fabrics together. I did get the color cards from lowes.

Thank you. Foundation piecing is a technique that doesn't thrill everyone. It is one that provides accuracy hundreds times over! If you get comfortable doing it you'll always like the result.
