As I gave my second mystery class I was cutting out my fabric. While many asked if this was their mystery…I said no…too small pieces for them. Now these are indeed tricky blocks. I remember making them with my first mystery quilt with Bonnie..Celtic Solstice. It took some time to master this block. However we have now the essential triangle and easy angle to help us along. I found both worked well for me. This block seemed to take forever…I guess sewing all those triangles. But I know it will be well worth it.
This worked just as well as the corner ruler suggested.
Then of course it laying blocks correctly to cut correctly.
Next to set up a system for sewing correctly.
Then pressing..I just made one for a reference as your mind can play tricks….
Finished all my blocks today and linking up Clue 3
Other news…neurosurgeon reports my 12 wk X-ray looks great! I did a hike yesterday 1.4 miles, felt good but a little sore today.
Daughter just found out today that she will head to Paris Island boot camp February 5 and will graduate May 5th if all goes well. She had a good time with friends, when she came back the gal she was working out had improved so much they wanted her to go in January. Abi was hoping for late February but a spot did open in January. I guess the Gunnery Master Sergeant approved her for the above date. So now she can start planning. As well as us. Looks like we will fly from AZ to SC and return here and maybe do our Western swing of states before heading back to WI.
Tomorrow will work on a charity quilt or machine quilting. Our Thursday/Friday quilting guild has a class on Cathedral Windows a very simple pattern. I will make that one for charity.
