Winter finally arrived here last night with a vicious ice storm. It's perfect weather for quilting!
I had bits of quilting time here and there over the Christmas week and have managed to keep up fairly well with the Quiltville mystery. The last two steps have been interesting sewing, but quite time intensive. Step #4 seemed to take way longer than I had expected. Also, some of the pressing suggestions for step #4 and #5 were counter-intuitive, and I kept forgetting not to press to the dark!
Yesterday I got almost totally caught up. Here is the bin of all the blocks sewn so far, pinned together in groups of 5 or 10. It looks like a hot mess, but hey, it's a quilt under construction! I still have to sew the rectangle units from step #5, but those pieces are already cut out, so I'm sure it won't take long.
To see how other mystery quilt makers are progressing, hop over to the Quiltville link up.
