New on my design wall is the 2009 mystery, Carolina Christmas, by Bonnie Hunter. It's now featured in her Scraps & Shirttails II book. Here are two of the blocks from that quilt.
Bonnie's beautiful quilts are way too big for me. I make a fourth of them. I made nine blocks. They're each 16" square. What has kept me from putting them together was the odd block I created - the one with the gold squares. You're seeing the corrected block, but I sewed the light squares and the red rectangles wrong on the bottom right section and made the star-like reds reversed. Yesterday, with no red fabric left, I had to resort to using the wrong side of those rectangles to get the pattern right. It meant taking the whole block apart (except for the two square patches) -ugh. I had also sewn the bottom left most two square patch wrong. But now it's all fixed. If you click on the photo, you can see the somewhat dull side of that fixed unit.
Maybe I can finally get the top done for the next WIPs Be Gone. Psst - last week's still open to link your eye candy.
And I have a question for you: Which Bonnie Hunter pattern/s have you made?
