Jo from Jo's Country Junction
has this pre-mystery UFO challenge going:
to finish a Bonnie Hunter mystery UFO (or other)
before the next Bonnie mystery starts
during the Thanksgiving Holiday.
What a great idea -
and I have been plugging along
on my Grand Illusion top:
I had opted for a smaller version of Grand Illusion
with a 4 x 5 block setting -
and am stuck at the point
when I should be sewing my borders on.
The short end of the pieced border
is approx. 1 inch too short:
My usual dilemma - and I am ready to give up.
I tried pressing and pulling, but to no avail.
Marking and sewing the pieced border
to the inner yellow border
at a smaller distance?
Meaning the inner border ends up
being maybe just 3/4 inch finished size?
Thanks Jo for hosting:
you certainly made me buckle down
and get a Bonnie top closer to being finished!
