Sorry No Books on Monday, But…

So, apparently, I have not looked at a single quilt book this week and I really want to get downstairs and sew, so no book review today.

I can, however, show you what I’ve been working on.

First, I was able to complete Block Five of the 2011 Designer Mystery BOM:

I also got quite far sewing together Block Five of the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM. That will certainly be completed by the end of next Saturday’s football game if not sooner. (Football on TV is perfect for hand work because you can always look up to see the plays and replays, but keep stitching most of the time.)

All of my sewing machine time this week was spent on the Christmas Celebration tree skirt. I took a few pictures.

This is what the bottom section of the individual wedges looks like. I’ve already trimmed the bottom point to make the hole for the tree trunk. (The curved piecing of the flying geese was not nearly as bad as I was expecting.

This is the top section of the individual wedges. And, yes, there is more curved piecing when I put the two together.

And here are the two pieces put together to make one wedge. If I were doing it over, I probably would put red instead of gold around the outside, but this does look kind of Art Deco. IMG_2298

Here is what the two wedges I’ve completed look like sitting next to each other. I think this is going to be okay. I hope.

And now I should get downstairs and put the other six together! I want to get this thing off to the longarmer soon.

Quilt on!
