Ah, yes. Bonnie keeps us on our toes. She released the final clue and the BIG REVEAL at midnight on New Year's Eve. Sneaky, sneaky!
I love it! I knew it would be spectacular. There is a lot of motion going on, so I have to admit I am happy that I didn't go scrappy. I think it would have detracted from the pattern too much. Of course, I had to put one block together with sashing, just to see how it looks. I'm loving it! I'll be working on it on and off probably with other projects mixed in. I'm not in a rush to have it done...and who knows -- as it evolves I may even change a few things. Maybe, maybe not. I do want to get it done sooner rather than later, as I certainly don't want or need another UFO in my closet. Here's my block with the sashing. If you want to see Bonnie's final quilt, click here.
Speaking of UFOs, I'm thinking I need to tackle a few more this year. Luckily I have a 4-day retreat scheduled at the end of January at Lake Yale with a bunch of crazy quilters; a couple of them my friends and others who are just friends I haven't met yet. :o) I predict it will be a blast! I'm thinking I should schlep some of my UFOs with me and see what I can accomplish, rather than starting new projects. The great thing about this retreat is you can work on whatever you want! Woohoo!
Have a Happy, Quilty New Year!
