Mystery Link Up Step #3

Today is the Quiltville mystery link up - click here to see all the wonderful mystery quilts in progess.
I did a bit of sewing on the clue #3 pieces over the weekend while watching The Crown on Netflix. I was sewing the blocks on Ethel, a short bed 301 Singer machine which makes a beautiful stitch, but refuses to wind a bobbin. I sewed until the bobbin ran out!


some step #3 units
Although I sewed right through season #1 of The Crown, one bobbin was not enough thread to get anywhere near the required number of units for step #3 of the mystery. That's okay.... my schedule is getting busier with Christmas approaching, so I probably won't be able to keep up with the steps from now until after the holidays. But I will sew a few of each of the steps as they are posted.

  1. You've really done a lot, but clue 3 was a heavy one. I struggled a bit to get the blocks right size, but at last I did it. And now I have a little more than half of them done.

  2. I'm struggling to keep up, too! I have 30 left in clue #2 and only did about 12 of clue #3. If only I could take a day off of work. :/

  5. I won't be keeping up either with all the busyness here, but it is fun to sew a few here and there. Love your colors.

  6. I like your choice of colour for the rectangles. I shall also be doing what I can each week, but don't expect to finish all the clues in one week.

  9. You are doing great! I got 2 done for step 2.... 2 total! Have not started step 3. I think I need to spend a few evenings in the sewing room catching up.

  10. Pretty Part 3 Parts! It's going to be fun to see the variations of color this year. I have strips cut, looking for my Essential Triangle tool. Oh My where could it be???

  13. Congrats on getting as far as you did. I've watched the first two episodes of season 2 of the crown, it's so interesting to see the relationships develop although some of the political machinations are also fascinating.
