I'm just 2 days late posting, but better late than never!  We've been busy with holiday outings, some last-minute shopping, company, parties etc.
I managed to get all my part 3 units for Bonnie's mystery pinned ready for their final seams on Sunday night.  We were away all day Monday, and Tuesday our company was arriving.  I managed to get everything prepared for their arrival, and turned on my sewing machine just as they arrived in the driveway!

Today was my southern quilting group's almost annual Christmas pot luck lunch get-together, so after our company left, I headed right to my sewing machine to start stitching.  I set a time to come inside to prepare jambalaya for lunch - chopping celery, onions and green peppers to go with some diced ham and chicken.  While it was cooking, I finished sewing the 120 units together.

Then I pressed all the units open, then cut them apart as I pressed.
Here are all my completed "parts", waiting for the next installment on Friday!

I then fluffed my jambalaya and spooned it into a fancier serving dish and headed off to a wonderful lunch.  I think quilters make wonderful cooks - all the food was delicious, and we had fantastic desserts too!
