Slow progress …

I’m happy to report that I have all 50 of the main blocks done for Bonnie Hunter’s 2017 mystery quilt “On Ringo Lake”!

Unfortunately, I still haven’t finished step #3 – the diamonds in rectangle units.  Big sigh.  I still have almost 200 of those to finish.

Then I’ll have to sew them into pairs to use them as sashing strips between the blocks.

The cornerstones and setting triangles are a little complicated too so I’ve been working on them while putting the blocks together.

I’m really hoping to have this quilt top done before Bonnie comes out with her next mystery quilt around Thanksgiving but it’s been more work than I thought it would be.

I do love these colors together and the way the blocks look.  I think it’s going to be beautiful when it’s finished so I just keep plodding along!

Hopefully my next update will be the finished quilt top – stay tuned…
