Double Delight

I've been working (finally) on last New Year's Bonnie Hunter mystery, Double Delight. I've been chugging away at it in the evenings.

Soooo many pieces!

But it's nice to see it coming alive on my design wall. :-)

Slowly. Sigh....

The dumb part is that I've done IT again. What is IT? IT is not finishing a project in a timely fashion and not being able to get more of the yardage I bought for it. This time around it's the brown and gold which I'd love to have for the borders. The brown is Moda's Bistro in Espresso Steam and the gold I can't find anywhere. I did find a little bit of the Espresso courtesy of the bit of selvage on the almost-yard I still have and the wonderful helpful staff at Wish Upon A Quilt. I just wish they still had some in the store!

But at least having the name makes it so much easier to search online! And I found 7/8 of a yard! I doubt it's enough but at least it's something. The gold is turning out to be impossible and I'll just have to find something else. I just have to keep reminding myself it's a scrap quilt anyway! :-D

Looks wonderful! The pink really makes it sing without being overpowering!

This is lovely. I'm sorry you have run out of fabric. What's the name of the gold? I'll look when I'm at a store...
