Are You Ready????

For the Friday Night Sew-In tonight…..

I am.  Tonight I’ll be finishing the quilting on my New Year’s Eve Mystery quilt.  It has to be finished for a raffle on Sunday to benefit my daughter’s high school band program.

Here’s what it looks like right now.

I’ll also be quilting the bag pieces for the overnight bag I’m making for my daughter.  There will be leftover backing and batting after I quilt the music quilt, so I’ll quilt the bag pieces at the bottom of the quilt before I take it off the frame.  Since the bag is fully lined the backing won’t show when it’s finished.

It's beautiful! I haven't even sewn my blocks together yet. I guess, at least, I have gotten all the blocks made. Have fun.

The quilt looks beautiful. The black sashing reminds me of Oriental window frames. I would certainly by tickets for a chance to win that quilt. I'm sure it will help your daughter's band earn lots of money.

Your NYE Mystery 2009 came out great. I really like the color combo. Have fun quilting it! (And, don't forget to show us a picture after it is done/quilted. B.

Um, Beth -- yours is different than mine. And, I LIKE it. You turned one of the triangles a different way and it looks so different. I think your colors have less contrast than mine too and that enhances this quilt a lot. B., again.
