At least I'm halfway!

Allietare marches on.  I've hit the halfway point with Clue 2:


That's ten sets out of the 20 that I need.  Eighty units is small potatoes compared to the 296  HSTs from Clue 1, though.
And I hit 200 of those HSTs today, so only 96 to go! 


I dither on whether I'm committed to making the whole quilt, or if I'll take the easy way out and just shoot for a half-size Allietare.  (And you all know how I love a good dither, so there's probably no resolving this one any time soon.) 
As busy as I am at the moment, and considering how many projects I've already got underway, my compromise is to finish each clue at least to the halfway point.  That way, if I have to set the whole project aside at the time of the reveal, at least most of the heavy lifting will be done and I can finish at my leisure when things calm down around here.  Well, if things calm down around here.  If I don't start eleventy more quilts and other assorted projects before the end of next year.
Or between now and the start of Bonnie Hunter's next mystery quilt...

Looking interesting - like the fabrics. Have you made many of her Mystery Quilts in the past?

Don't exert yourself Gayle. Quilting is a fun hobby remember? You are doing great progress and it looks pretty already. Enjoy! ;^)

There is nothing wrong with starting eleventy more quilts.......it's that eleventy twelfth one that causes the problems. :) Love you red fabrics! So much fun!!

Sounds like a plan--you will at least do a half size, and have the choice to do the larger. Here's to dithering and other dilemmas like eleven projects!
