The new Quiltville mystery is rolling along and I am keeping up well by making about 2/3 of the blocks. In this week's step we added wings to the HSTs from step #1. I do love the wool pressing mat and even though they are expensive to purchase, I find that they are worth every penny!
Sometimes I have a little fun and entertain myself by creating different ways of pressing the blocks. This is a set of 4 blocks after sewing the second wing and pressing them in a star shape before cutting the threads that connect them from strip piecing.
And sometimes when you're sewing many many units, you make a mistake...like this one! Uh oh... some of these wings are flying off in wrong directions!
Making errors means it's time for a coffee break to settle down and refocus. This is my mug from the 2019 Frolic mystery.
These are the results of my efforts from step #1 - #3. Step #4 will be posted today and I'm excited to see what we will be sewing this week.
