Blue Cheese Looks Delicious!

blocks on design floor
I have made some really good progress with this quilt and I love what I see so far! I have all of the blocks made but I still need to do a bit more piecing. There is a very narrow pieced border that is missing and it needs to be added to each of the outer blocks individually before they all get sewn together. I hope to get it done over the next couple days.

I was trying to not get distracted by En Provence although I was tempted. I have already pulled some 2" neutral strips from their bin and I have pulled quite a few neutrals from my fabric cupboards as well. I pressed the fabrics in anticipation of cutting them into strips of 1.5", 2", 2.5" and 3.5" but then I stopped myself because I really don't know what sizes will be needed for the mystery quilt. I have the fabrics laying over the back of a chair and I really would like to get them into the bins and out of the way but it would be my luck that other strip sizes would be needed. So, I will cut some 2" strips from them for now and then and leave the rest for later. I do hope to have all of the required 4 patches finished before the next clue is released.

Those blocks look like they will make a beautiful quilt. Good luck resisting the pull of the BH Mystery!! I tried... and failed.

This quilt is looking amazing so far! Can't wait to see your progress with it. I made 30 4-patch blocks for En Provence so far. I wasn't going to join. I don't need another project to work on. But I couldn't help myself.

It looks beautiful. I like borders that get added to outer blocks individually. I really hate pinning long borders! I'm curious to see the pieced border! Good luck with En Provence. I love watching Bonnie's mysteries take shape, though I haven't found time to join in so far. Maybe next year...this year I'll cheer from the sidelines again.
