Mysteriously Not Sewing

We're in the final stretch of the Midnight Mystery quilt along, but I have to admit, my sewing on this project has been mysteriously absent. I'm almost 2 months behind but I'm going to do my best to get caught up by the end of January.  Here are my huge courthouse step blocks - they're massive at 19" x 19" and I love them!


Here they are with the other block units. 


I've gotten all of my geese pinned to my square in a square units so now it's time to chain piece them all so that I can get cracking on December's task of cutting up those courthouse blocks to construct the final blocks.

Let's do this!

UPDATE: I've just learned about OMG - the One Monthly Goal link up over at Red Letter Quilts. As a way to help me stay on task I'm going to participate. My goal - to construct my 12 final blocks. Wish me luck!!

  1. You've still got plenty of time to catch up, I like that Cheryl gives us so much time to finish at the end so we can all link up. :)

  4. I am absolutely in love with those batiks. Don't feel bad, I'm a bit behind too. As quilters I think it's our job to fall behind :)

  6. Ahhh... It's so hard to keep up. The holidays, life, kids, just take up so much time. You'll finish it sooner or later and it is going to be very pretty when you do. Lovely colors.

  8. This is my goal for the month too, though I've got a little more catch-up to do than you :D

    Your quilt is going to be fantastic! Great fabric choices.

  10. Considering that I have yet to even choose my fabrics, you're further along than I am! I'm not a batik kind of girl, but I'm really intrigued with where you're going with this. Good luck -- you can do it! : )
