We saw not one, but two movies this week. (It's nice to go to the matinee showing.) We saw The Favourite on Monday (Queen Anne) and Mary, Queen of Scots on Friday. The former was better but the costumes in both were wonderful. What monarch will we see next? Victoria returns to PBS Masterpiece on January 13!

I finished the b/w 16-patch. The blocks are 6" and the quilt is 54 x 60. The square-in-square units on the back came from a swap.
I set the blocks that I made in the 6-week Secret Santa Sew-Along from Temecula Quilt Co. I like the small-scale (11") Burgoyne blocks. The flimsy is 52 x 66 and used 4 yards.
The sashing is a can't-cut-this print (Hoffman) that I'm pretty sure I bought in North Dakota. That means it's been in my stash for more than 20 years. I still have a half yard of it!
I stated that I would take it easy this year and aim for just half the blocks of Good Fortune. I exceeded my aim and I have all the units made. Clue 5 (in front) joins the others, each in a Snapware box.
I used the orange strips left over from Clue 4 to make these citrus-bright blocks.
Confession time: I returned library books, checked out more, and dropped off a box of books for the ongoing booksale. There were quilt books on the sale rack and I bought 'em. This two-binder set was included.
Someone not only subscribed to the 1995 Oxmoor House mail order BOM, but she also saved all of the parts of every packet and filed them under the appropriate tabs in the two binders.
I dropped off a box of clothing at Salvation Army. Then I went inside -- and came out with three cotton flat sheets: full, queen, and a never-used king. $3.99 each --15 yards of fabric, eighty cents a yard. They will make great quilt backs.
