Are you sewing along with the Grassy Creek mystery or are you cheering from the sidelines? Some people like to collect the mystery pattern and make the quilt once they know what the design will be like and can pick the fabrics they want. I like to "live on the edge" with my mystery quilting. It's the process that is so fun for me and I don't really care about how my fabric choices turn out in the finished quilt.
And sometimes you get a spectacular quilt, like the 2013 Quiltville mystery called Celtic Solstice, and I called my version Angel Solstice. So beautiful!
I am keeping up with this year's mystery so far (making half the units each step). I enjoyed watching the 1947 black and white movie called The Bishop's Wife while I sewed some part 4 blocks.
On the weekend before Christmas my local quilt guild hosted a Saturday zoom sew along and there was a "break out room" for folks who are making this year's Quiltville mystery . Here we are working on whatever step each of us were sewing.
So fun to sew and chat with guild friends we haven't been able to meet with since February, and to meet new friends!
Let's face it - how many other ways can you have an adventure during covid lockdown?!?Some of my part 4 pieces are on the design wall today and I enjoyed playing with different arrangements. This was a fun block to make.
This is how I am storing the blocks as we go along. This is the packaging that new bed sheets come in. You can see through the clear plastic, it has a zipper with a pink tassel, and it is the perfect 'free' storage container for mystery pieces.
