Another busy weekend .... and I'm still not ready for Christmas. I guess I've got one more weekend. I'm looking forward to having some time off ... to sew of course!
I had to run a few errands on Friday, but once I got home I immediately got started on Part 4.
|Purple and Teal Geese|
There's nothing that makes me happier than throwing my slivers on the floor. I'm not sure why that makes me so happy, but it does!! I guess I think I'm Eleanor Burns or something!
|Scraps on the Floor|
It didn't take long to get all those geese pieced together and then joined with the other geese:
|Combined Geese Units|
It was exciting to start putting some of the pieces together. This is the first time I've ever done a Mystery Quilt and it's a lot of fun!! And of course I went ahead and did the "bonus" cutting assignment! I've been dying to get in there and cut up those greens!
I worked some on Susan & Greg's quilt too. I started sewing strips to make 9-patches and then cut them back into smaller units to make 3-patch strips to sew together.
I made 36 9-patches, but I realized as I was picking up that I needed four more for the corners. I guess I'll do those next weekend.
I went ahead and started sewing the signature blocks together. If I ever do this quilt again I think I will paper piece the signature blocks so they are exact. I'm not a perfect sewer by any means.
I think it will turn out pretty good.
