Bowdacious! Progress Report

Since I've made some progress on my UFO list this month (though, I neglected to take down my Christmas decorations until this week, shhhh....), I've given myself until the end of the month to get a bit more done on my Bowdacious! quilt.  Here's where I'm at...
Bowdacious! blocks
The inner sashings (pink) and cornerstones have been added to the bowtie units to finally form blocks!  I worked on all of the bowtie units last year as part of my RSC13 project and I have not added to my UFO list because I intend to keep working on it a bit at a time until it is finished.  This one is NOT getting stashed away into the cabinet!
Bowdacious! blocks with sashing & cornerstones
After all 49 blocks were assembled, then I wanted to pay around with the setting.  I got the next set of sashing strips (sagey gold) cut out and popped them up on the design wall with a few of the blocks and more cornerstones.  So far, so good.  I think I'm liking this!

If you're interested, Bowdacious! can be found in Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures with Leaders & Enders.

Nice blocks. A bit mysterious.

Nice, Heather! I really love scrappy quilts. There's something so homey and interesting about them.
