        All I did was create a little data that got filled in with others posts, lol. We quilters take care of one another. I hope everyone has a positive takeaway of what was accomplished and learned. I have much to go with mine since I have only dabbled each week with a few pieces.

          Your blocks look awesome, Deegles. I also did only a few units of every clue, and now I know I will NOT finish some of them: I hate pieced borders! When my guests leave and I get my sewing room back I will resume the clues that lead to the construction of the blocks and figure out which of the borders I make, if any.

            Thank you, I wish now I would have trusted my gut! I probably will not make all of the pieced borders either. Framing each corner with them or floating them in the center on each side may happen for me or perhaps a little of both!

              I think the pieces borders are going to be the death of me, lol.

                I am now finishing the orange/red chain blocks and will figure out how many units to make of the other clues. I definitely won't be making the small HSTs but I love the looks of her last external border with the QSTs. I will be playing around some before I make the decision of which borders to make.

                  I saw in the linkup today that somone centered those qst’s on each side which was beautiful.

                    I am slowly progressing. All the orange/red blocks are assembled. I made the decision to add only 2 pieced borders before the big outer one that I have the perfect print for. My first border will consist in 2.5" wide neutral pieces and the second one will use 80 of the QST units we made for clue #5.
                    I am just needing a few more lozange units to build the alternate squares. Hopefully there will be some more light tomorrow so that I can take pics and post them. I should make sure I download the last clues to my computer before they are deleted from Bonnie's site.

                      I am still working on this quilt. I went with her colors because this is my first BH quilt. I am not happy so far with the colors, but maybe that will change when I assemble the quilt. I have seen some other color combos that are to die for.

                        I have all the 16 patch blocks done. I have the pinwheel blocks pieced, but still need to sew the quadrants together. Next I will be making the outer border. As many pieces as this quil is, the shrtcuts (no strings) really helped me speed up the pace. I hope to jave my top completed by the linkup in Feb.

                          All my blocks are now completed. I hope to assemble them during the week-end (well, on Sunday as I work tomorrow).

                          TMP, don't lose faith! I didn't like my blocks much until I started laying them down and saw them together. All my fabrics are too busy prints for this busy pattern but yet, as I put the blocks side by side, the diagonal neutral squares start chaining and the high contrast between the two so different blocks makes them pop out.

                          Deegles, I wish you luck with the pinwheels! I hate matching 8 seams together: out of the 25 blocks, I think there are 5-6 I am satisfied with (those I used for the pic, haha). In all the others I missed some of the points by 1/16" to 1/8" but I am not redoing any. Wonky blocks make shabby chic quilts, don't they? (Trying to fool myself). Hopefully with quilting and washing the inconsistencies will be less noticeable.

                            I recall Bonnie mentioning in the post of sewing the pinwheel blocks together that they don’t always match.....shabby chic, good one! I dont care about that misconception. Finished is better than perfect. And I too thought this all looked off a bit until I laid them together, they ring nicely the contrast in these blocks. It seems to be a very forgiving pattern, horay for Good Fortune!

                              I have seen the pictures some of you have put up, beautiful quilts. I finally finished mine today, it is interesting. I accidentally put 1 more row long than sideways, but was not going to take it apart. It will be a nice twin size quilt, even if I do not have a twin size bed. I am hoping maybe after I get it all quilted I will probably give it to my grandson, hopefully he will enjoy it. I was very afraid of sewing all those small pieces together, but it went together fairly easily. I have to admit I did get quite a bit of scrap fabric used, which makes me a happy camper. I will hopefully do next years also, it has been interesting since it was my first time with mystery quilts.
