Summer Sewing

This week's sewing time was spent working on my guild's summer mystery. 
I used the EZ angle Tri Recs rulers to cut these pieces and that worked well. I have certainly got my money's worth from using these rulers over the years. The next step is to trim the blocks, although they are pretty close to perfect and only sliver trimming is needed. Some people would skip this step, but I'll do it anyway (compulsively!)

But first... I jumped ahead and worked on the next step and
made a handful of 4 pretty patch units.
Now I'll go back and do that sliver trimming.

I store all the mystery blocks in an old ziploc bag that I have used for years. It's a great way to keep all the parts together and organized.

Next I'll catch up on the Quilting Life for that next week!

Great stack of pretty blocks. I love how organised all of your blocks look. Happy trimming.

Congratulations on keeping all caught up. The way you jump from one new quilt to another and keep track of it all has always amazed me.

Sliver trimming is a must for me as well. Even though it can get tedious if you have to do a lot of it, there is also something strangely satisfying in seeing that you are only a sliver away from a perfect block. Besides, there is always the point of the whole process, to make sure things fit together nicely.
