Show & Tell Challenge - Part One


Jo of Jo's Country Junction is hosting a 3 part challenge called 'Show & Tell Challenge' to encourage us Bonnie Hunter fans to make some progress or get a finish on one of our BH projects.  

July 15 - link up chosen project
July 22 - link up progress
July 29 - link up for final show & tell (a finish is not required)

This was perfect timing as I am trying to wrap up some leader/ender projects and the Grandpa's Stars from Quiltmaker March/April '12 - Bonnie's Addicted to scraps column was begging for a finish.  I don't make big quilts (well, I can) so this one will be just set 5 x 6 blocks with two borders.  I have 20 blocks finished and all the parts ready for the last 10 blocks.  Putting these together will be a breeze - it will be the borders that I drag on - so this will give the push.

Do you have a BH project in progress and need that push?  Join in!

Sharon

  2. Grandpa's Stars? I'd love to see a Picture. Gotta find that issue. Nice to see you chiming in on the Challenge.

  3. I started Talkin Turkey a couple years ago and it has been languishing .... but I'm so overwhelmed already right now that I don't think I'll have time to add this in. I'm going to enjoy seeing everyone else getting them done though! Your Grandpa's Stars is going to be a wonderful scrappy quilt!

  4. I love your Grandpa's Stars. Can't wait to see what you do with the border.
    I'm stuck at borders for my BH Garden Party - haven't decided what it wants. Maybe that would be my challenge - making a decision... 8)

  12. Sounds like a fun way to stay motivated. I'd link up, but with a business trip taking up most of next week, there won't be a lot of progress between now and the end of the month. I'll just have to celebrate your progress.
