Step #1 finished

I sewed all morning and finished the first step of the mystery - 100 rail fence blocks. Here they are...not looking nearly as wonderful as they should for all that time and effort! Oh well, they will look better when they are put together with their friends! It sure has been great to use up all the small bits and scraps of these fabrics that were just sitting in a box. I already have cut lots of 1 1/2" strips to go right into step #2 this afternoon.


  1. Kathy, I already love the color combo that you're using in your blocks! I'm following along in spirit, but haven't actually taken cutter to fabric yet.

    It's nice to see some out-of-the-box work - how inspiring!

  2. Did you say 1 1/2" strips? Good heavens, have my vote of confidence that you can do it!

  3. I love the colour combination you've chosen Kathy, it's going to look just sensational!

  4. I love your colors, lime green is one of my favorites! I'm still working on step one myself but I'll get there some day.

  5. I like your color choices too. Looks like your quilt will be lots of fun.

  6. I love the bright green accent, that was what I had originally planned on mine, now I am using uglies...
