FInished Step #1

Step #1 of Bonnie's mystery is finished.  It was very mindless and relaxing cutting and sewing...perfect for this time of year to calm down at the end of a long day, while you try not to think of all the things you have to do in the next 3 weeks. (Maybe I should be doing some of those things instead of sewing, eh?!?!)
Here is my pile of 192 "Twosies" blocks. It almost looks like a fabric Christmas tree!
And here are some of the twosies and 4 of the 104 HST's which went together quickly and accurately using the Easy Angle ruler...loved it!
As I was sewing these blocks I felt a little bit concerned about my combination of greens. Some of them are blueish greens and some are so yellowy. Usually I wouldn't put these greens together in a quilt, but they looked so nice and friendly laid out at the beginning. Time will tell I guess! I used to get my knickers in quite a knot over the fabric selections, but since doing mysteries with Bonnie I am more comfortable making strange/unique choices and believing that somehow it will all work out in the end! Hmmm...perhaps a life lesson there?!?

Kathy, I love your colors! Such cheerful, bright, yummy colors. Isn't this fun? I am behind, already...not a race though...right?
