Today I finally got to start on Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery Quilt. Our first assignment was to make 192 4-patches. 192 .... WOW. That overwhelmed me to start with. But today in just a matter of a few hours, I got all the strips cut and about half of the pairs sewn together. I'm hoping I can finish tomorrow! That would be better than I expected!

I looked over while I was cutting and here's what I saw:
My kitty, Nala, was sound asleep with her head by the heat registrar ... I guess she was cold!! It didn't take long for my iron to heat up my sewing room though. I actually broke a sweat by the time I stopped for dinner!

My picture above is a little out of focus ... must of been the sweat!! LOL

So tomorrow hopefully I'll get all 192 done and be ready to start on Part 2 next weekend. This is my first Mystery Quilt and I'm really excited about it! I can't wait to see how it turns out!
