WWanda arrived a little before 10AM with soup, bread, banana bread, turnips and greens!!! I love seeing her come sneaking in with bags…they’re always full of wonderful treats.
Love those little FeatherWeight machines! Perfect for lugging around to retreats, classes and a friend’s houe for a day of sewing.
We stopped for lunch, marked, sewed, trimmed, and marked more. Lots of time putting what look like star points onto strips.
Then there were slices of Cream Cheese Pound Cake and Pear Cake for snacking…how can we quilt without snacks? A cup of coffee to wash it all down and ready to sew again.
WWanda pulled up stakes and headed home about 5PM. I think we each have about 80% of the sewing completed. I’m on clue 7 on 1 quilt and clue 6 on the second one…not content to make just one, I chose fabrics for the second one and cut everything last night.
The little blue corner blocks go with the red/cream fabric while the green corner blocks go with the blue/grey fabrics. I already like the look of the fabrics together. That’s always a toss up with a mystery quilt…because you have no clue what it will look like till it’s done. FUN!
I’ve laid my blocks out and thought I had a clue what we were making, then Ann posted another clue and I see I was WRONG!!!! Not stars at all. Really pretty though. Need to get in there and see if I can get my blocks finished. I’ll post a picture of my completed blocks soon :-)
Thank you so much Ann for getting me into the sewing room to work on such a lovely NYE Mystery Quilt.
