On Ringo Lake, just drifting away

Yesterday was the last link-up party for On Ringo Lake over at Bonnie's place, so I need to throw a quick post up about Ringo's status.  Wouldn't want to miss a party!
I haven't gotten as far as I would have liked, but getting sewing time has been a rough road lately.  I'm just going to declare myself happy with my progress and move on.


The lower left corner of the quilt is assembled, and the row running from upper left to lower right is sewn together, but not attached to the main part yet.  Little by little...

(And don't think I'm not saving those little cutoff tippy-tops from the setting triangles.


I've already thought of several things to do with them, from flying geese to Hope of Hartford to using them for the outer triangles for a square-in-square block.)

The master plan for ORL at this point is to scoop all the sewn-together parts and set them aside, while I continue making more components as leader/enders for my other projects.


You know, projects like Burgoyne, who had to get displaced so I could take photos of Ringo.


He's now mumbling to himself over there in the corner, and making ominous threats involving "Surrounding".  Ringo better watch his back...

Come see the last Ringo Lake linkup at Bonnie Hunter's place.  So many people played along with this mystery quilt - isn't that a wonderful thing?

You've made great progress with On Ringo Lake. I hope you've been able to convince Burgoyne to share the design wall. Hope you find more time for stitching this next week.

I've probably said this before, I ove the colour combo for your 'On Ringo Lake', it's looking wonderful! And I love that bright yellow BS block! Sometimes our sewing time gets a bit tricky to claim!

Burgoyne clearly has boundary issues! Better get him stitched up and under control :) Your ORL is going to be so lovely with the colors you've chosen.

Very Pretty -- looking forward to the finished top. LOL, I just rearranged my sewing room and moved everything away from one long wall -- I now have a 14 foot wide design wall (the most important tool for those who work on several projects at once.

Both projects look great! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with those cut-offs since I saved mine too!

Both of these projects are so beautiful. I can see why there is a competition. I'm pretty sure Burgoyne was surrounded, and water does tend to win over pretty much anything. But it can still keep trying until the battle is over!

Little by little we built wonderful things, from the Eiffel Tower to a quilt. Those two quilts have so many little piece per blocks that they should keep you out of trouble for a while. Enjoy! ;^)

I admire your stick-to-it-iveness with Mr. Ringo. Soon you'll have another quilty finish!

You crack me up! I've just been catching up on your more recent posts. Hope no one got hurt in the fabric avalanche (or did you get it corralled before that happened?). Thanks for brightening my day. :-)
