Good Fortune Progress
A little late, but happy Lunar New Year/Spring Festival everyone! It feels appropriate to have progress to share on Bonnie Hunter's 2019 mystery quilt, Good Fortune.
All the blocks are done! 🎉🎉🎉
Assembly has started! 🎉🎉🎉
I'm just laying out 9 blocks at a time, and trying for an equal distribution of dark and light values in each section. The orange blocks with the skinny inserts will be in the centre of the quilt, and the string blocks are going around the corners. It's already a very active quilt, so I decided a symmetrical layout would be best.
This is the point where you find out how accurate your sewing was last year. 😂 Fortunately, I tend to sew scant, so it's easy to trim the block or tighten up a seam if necessary. And fortunately, that hasn't been too often.
So far, so good! 🎉🎉🎉

I love your colorway. It's so vibrant and fun. (I'm suddenly thirsty for Tequila!!?) I so love your "skinny" blocks. Great idea. Looking forward to see more of this quilt. ;^)ReplyDelete
This is looking fantastic! It's got a lot of energy but the orderly layout holds everything together well.ReplyDelete
Wow - those colours are singing!!! I'm looking forward to seeing the the completed top.ReplyDelete
Oh, definitely fabulous so far!ReplyDelete
Great colour arrangement, Monica. Harmony should be your middle name!ReplyDelete
So vibrant and happy looking! My sewing is never really all that accurate. Can't ever count on that>:)ReplyDelete
Love your version, so bright & cheerful! I have found if I come back to a project some time later, my sewing isn't the same! But a little fudging helps!ReplyDelete
