Begonia :: October

It's seriously hard to believe. Looking back at the Seattle MQG Begonia BOM quilt schedule, I made over 300 half-square triangles over the last several months, and as of today, I HAVE ADDED THEM ALL TO MY BEGONIA QUILT TOP! Big wow.

I kinda love a sewalong like this. Each month there has been a very specific assignment, and I'm good at that kind of thing. And with the way Stefanie/@satterwhitequilts front-loaded the creation of all those HSTs, the last few months have been wonderfully relaxed sewing.

So now, the last row of HSTs is on, the 'mystery' pattern has basically been revealed (and I love it!), and now we just wait until November when we get info on borders. My quilt top is currently 66" square, and next month I'll need to decide just how big I want it to be. AND how to quilt it. I can be patient, but I'm also really looking forward to all that.


  1. big wow is right! it's been so much fun to watch this come together!

  2. Stunning! It sounds like a very well paced quilt, and it certainly is rich and sparkling in your chosen palette.

  3. wonderful color palette - I have been tempted to do this in reds

  4. This has grown into a beautiful quilt. Wonder what will be next.
