Carolina Crossroads - Step 5 finished

Today I finally finished the "squaring up" of the 100 Hourglass blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery, so I can say they are DONE.

I can't figure out how she is going to turn these five different blocks into an 80" x 80" quilt top! There don't seem to be enough of them to make that size. But, Bonnie will resolve it all.

Meanwhile I am giving some thought to what I will do for my new Secret Sister this month. This may not be something I can BLOG about until the end of the year, because, of course, she is in my quilting bee.

I added an exercise monitor on the sidebar, from TickerFactory.com. Though I only swim twice a week, I'm using a swimmer to log all my minutes of exercise whatever form it takes.


Steps today: 2050 + 35 minutes pool exercise

Congrats on finishing Step 5 - I used the same technique you did and I'm still trimming mine. I found this step went faster than the others despite the extra trimming :)
