Carolina Crossroads Clue Five and Six are Done!

This morning I did some cutting and pinning and sewing and completed the last bit of step five and step six of Carolina Crossroads. I also pinned for step seven...the final step before the layout.

It feels so good to finally be this close to the end on this one! I am so glad I snuck it in because I always wished I had just joined in when I joined the group and this mystery was in progress on quiltville! I think I have a chance of getting all the blocks done before the Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll starts November 19th! I know the sewing of the rows will be a big project since it is huge and on point but it will get done. Then the only mystery of Bonnie's I haven't done is Tobacco Road...hmm, may sneak that in in 2011! Of course I always order the matching magnets and pins from Forest Jane at too!
I haven't gotten any farther on my binding for Puddle Jump Mystery and the Atkinson Designs pattern either. Today I will meet up with Ros (in an hour or so) and pick up the newest Outside the Box quilt...then I need to complete the sleeve on it and the binding as well as get a sleeve on the Flock of Triangles quilt for the autism art show in December. Never done sleeves so wish me luck on that!

Your blocks are looking great. Carolina Crossroads was the first mystery quilt that I ever made and I must say that I am hooked. I think Tobacco Road is my favorite though, it lives on the daybed in the guest bedroom and I admire it every time I am in the room.

Those blocks are looking fabulous. I thought of you when I read Bonnie was starting a new mystery.

I agree with the first comment...looking really really great!
