Slow Sunday Stitching!

Morning.  I am glad to be alive and have a heaviness in my heart for the loss of my precious Kay and now sadness for those who lost their lives while living their lives.  My God be with them.

I have been working on Kevin’s Mystery Quilt .  On Friday I cut out 800 yup 800 2 1/2″ squares from some left over Timeless Treasure Lollie Pops (probably purchased in 2013/2014).  What a job but it felt good to move around in the Studio after a difficult week.  This is what 800 looks like!

 

800 2 1/2″ squares

This is Color 1 of the Mystery quilt and we are to make 4 patches – all 184 of them!  Yikes!

17 4 patches

Color 2 will be lights – all 700 of them (2 1/2″ squares) to be cut after I finish all of the 4 patches!  I may not finish them before we take a little vacation from the world!  We will see.

I did work on 2 blocks from Stonefields, but it seems that Ms Susan Smith was off on her measurements (what’s new) and I had to waste some fabric and time before realizing it – I would show the problem, but it is gone with the trash man!  I have my own version that I will show when finished.

Have a safe and blessed week!  Enjoy Life!

  2. WOW, that’s a lot of squares!!! This will be a very rich toned quilt. I am staying away from every kind of start until I get my current quilt situation under control! Ha!
