OMG - Blue Ridge Beauty

I'm determined to spend more time doing the things I enjoy this year, and sewing would have to be at the top very of the my list of how I like to spend my time. My sewing room is full to the brim and theres quite a few WIPs (works in progress) and UFO's (unfinished objects) waiting for my attention.

I'm joining up with Elm St Quilts One Month Challenge with a goal of finishing piecing the top of Blue Ridge Beauty, a Bonnie Hunter quilt from her book Adventures with Leaders & Enders.

I started this early last year but its been packed away for months now. So I unpacked it and heres what I've done so far.

I've got 190 x 4 patches pieced and trimmed, not even half the number I need!




I've got 270 untrimmed half square triangles, so a bit over half done.




I've been working on some batwraps and joey bags this morning. Hoping to get them done by Monday and then I can get to work on this quilt top.

  1. How do batwraps work? How big are they?

    1. They are about 10" x 36", on end is stuffed like a little pillow. The baby bat will hold on to the pillow part, as he would hold on to his mother, and then gets rolled up in the wrap. I will post a pic for you in my next post.
