Getting a little control

I've decided to get a little control in my sewing room.  I've been concentrating on at least getting some of these quilt projects completed to at least the flimsy stage.  I'm currently working on my second Grand Illusion. The first one is complete up to the binding, of which I have yet to make.  I sent it out to be quilted in January after completing it a week after Bonnie Hunter posted the reveal from her 2015 mystery.  I really like this quilt and the quilting.

I decided when I started that I would make two in different colors.  The one above is the suggested colors from Bonnie and here is the other one in it's pieces and parts.  I just need to get them into blocks and quilted.  It may be a Christmas present for a friend this year.

I also found all the blocks for my Christmas Lights (another BH mystery) from 2010 and got those put together up to the borders stage.  Just need to decide what I want to do.

I've also been working on my Roll, Roll Cotton Boll,  you guessed it - another Bonnie Hunter Mystery, 2011 I believe.  I got stuck at the strip pieced blocks and that's where it remained until now.  The same happened the following year with Orca Bay.  No strip-pieced blocks.  All other parts are done.  I have most of the pieces done for Celtic Solstice, just need to be put together.  Slowly, but surely I will get them done.
