Step #7 blocks finished

I have been a one woman piecing factory today. My family is away skiing, snowboarding, shopping, and working, and I had a glorious sewing day all to myself! This is a very rare occurence and I enjoyed every second of it. On the left is a photo of one of the step #7 blocks of the mystery quilt. On the right is 16 of the finished blocks. Don't they look great together? I thought that I could just add a sashing and have a lovely quilt with these blocks!
But I kept right on sewing and was able to finish all the blocks needed to piece together the mystery and here they are. They don't really look like much sitting here a pile, but just you wait until tomorrow when I sew them all together!!!

I'm waiting, Kathy, and I know it will be a wonderful quilt. Isn't it great to have a whole day to sew with no interruptions?

Wow! You go girl! I really love your blocks!!
I thought about joining this mystery, but I am so drowning in projects that I knew it would be destined to be a UFO too. poor me huh? ;-) I am looking forward to seeing it all together, how exciting! the end is in sight!
