On Ringo Lake {Clues #7, #8, & #9}

Having a three day weekend last week and then my husband being out of town for a few days this week was a big jump start on a number of projects, especially my On Ringo Lake quilt!

After finishing up all of the individual units, starting to put the units together seemed much faster, or rather, much more rewarding!

Clue #7 was pairing up all of our flying geese units -- working on this a little in the evenings made it go quite quickly!

I laid out the stacks of units with one another to get an idea of how my blocks were going to look. So bright, so lovely! 

These zipped together into blocks with very few uses of the seam ripper. A triumph! Here are all of my blocks.

Clue #9 is the reveal post with the quilt top construction. Last weekend I paired up all of the sashing units and sewing the top together was weekend's main project. I was able to lay everything out and get the blocks and sashings sewn into rows. I finished sewing the last few rows on the top Saturday morning. It's bright and beautiful!

I don't have anything on hand for backing and other things that will need to be quilted first, so I will start window shopping for a backing. I'm in a rather lovely and strange place right now where I have no pressing deadlines so I have been able to work ahead on some future projects as well as working on some of my just for fun quilts, like On Ringo Lake.

Although this probably needs it's own name to reflect its more tropical feeling! Maybe this should be On Montego Bay?

Ps. We now have a Honey, Bunny, and Doll FACEBOOK GROUP! Join in to see an early preview of our upcoming quilt along!


  1. That is a bright and cheery quilt! Congratulations for getting the top pieced, and I definitely vote for a slight rename. :)

  2. Gorgeous! Love your color choices so much :)

  3. Beautiful color choices for your On Ringo Lake. Yeah, it needs a slight name change, but Montego Bay doesn't have your beautiful's blues and greens. Your beautiful quilt reminds me of the Cichlids (fish) in Lake Malawi!! So maybe In Lake Malawi would work!

  4. It looks great Alison! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  5. Oh man! This is so bright and cheerful! I LOVE it! And that is a luxury to have no pressing deadlines, woo!

  6. Your fabrics in this one are SO GORGEOUS. Great project!

  7. Ohh, pretty! On Montego Bay works nicely. Congrats on getting yours into a finished flimsy so quickly.

  8. I can't get over how much I love your fabric selection. Well done!

  9. LOL!! On Montego Bay sounds like the PERFECT name for your tropical version of Bonnie 2017 Mystery quilt!!

  10. Just changing brown to black makes a huge difference. Montego Bay sound like a fitting name. It may be Bonnie's pattern but you made it your own - love everything about it.
