I finished the first set of blocks for my Downton Abbey Mystery QAL. I ended up using a solid background instead of the DA one. I think it looks fine. I didn't want to wait until the fabric came in or I would be way behind. This is a Christmas gift for my sister. I told her she wouldn't get it til January sometime though.
It is called Titanic and I am using Sybil's color way.
I also am keeping up on my Fit For A Hero (FFAH) over at Judy's. It's kind of nice that it only takes about 30 minutes to do the step and be done with it.
And finally I spent half the day Friday and half the day Saturday cutting but I finally was able to start sewing on step one of Bonnie Hunter mystery, Celtic Solstice.
I was able to get 180 blocks done so I only have 100 more to go.
Even though I really am not a fan of cutting with a templates, the ruler really made this easier. It is a little time consuming but when you go to start sewing the blocks together it works out pretty darn good. I think it is amazing that these wonderful quilters go out of their way to do these free quilt alongs for us.
