Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville's Quips and Snips is posting a mystery quilt. From what I understand she does it on a yearly basis. So being home and all I thought hey that sounds like fun. The first post was in October with a list of the fabric colors, and the yardage needed. http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/10/find-yourself-on-easy-street...
Finally the first set of instructions was posted http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/11/easy-street-mystery-part-1.html. I will admit I am a wee bit slow and the weekend is filled with spending time with my honey and his family and making big plans for the new year. When I had a free moment I would cut my 2 inch strips and finally had a chance to sew for a couple of hours Saturday. I decided this was a perfect time to break out my featherweight that honey bought me and use it. (FYI I absolutely love it, but it did take me a bit to get used to using the hand wheel again) Anyway I digress.
Yep here is my pile of twosie patches.
Do you know how long it takes to sew 384 twosie patches? Ummm yeah we won't go there....Let's just say that I finally started to sew my 4 patches together and they are so cute!
I just wanted to show my progress for week 1. While I do have quite the list of projects to get finished before Christmas for the Finish it up Challenge, and some additional items on the "to do" list I just had to take a small break and sew along on this mystery.....anyone else sewing the Easy Street? I would love to see your progress if you are! Drop me a note and let me know especially if you are posting pictures. I love to see everyone's wonderful ideas.
