My House Quilt isn't finished.  I will continue to work on it next week.  It has been a bit more of a challenge than originally anticipated.  But, you know, that is a good thing.  It is nice to be challenged.  Here is how my week went.

Monday (Trudy's there for moral support)

Tuesday (finished the wonky stars)

Wednesday (decided to concentrate on rows)

Thursday (2 more rows to go)

and close up of what's finished, so far.
I have a wonky border in mind.  So far, it is only in my mind.
However, I did finish the Nine Patch for the Tea and Auction in October.

Have a great weekend and

Quilt happy,

Wow! Amazing watching how you progress on this wonky quilt! I have wonky house and star blocks. Maybe I can get them together some day.

I love the nine patches. So traditional and so traditionally quilted!
