Are you sewing along with the Fat Quarter Shop's Christmas mystery?
It's too early for thoughts of Christmas, right?!?
But I do love a good mystery, and I wanted to sew block #2 called "hard candy" (click here for the pattern link). It looked quick and so darn cute! Well it wasn't that quick because I made a few mistakes as you can see on the red blocks.
I sewed the block on Elsie (a 221 Featherweight born in 1951) and she enjoyed the opportunity to sew again. Her tension is perfect and she is a treat to sew on.
Once I fixed my mistakes and completed the block I was quite happy with the fabrics I found for these sweet candy blocks.
And here is it with block #1 from last week.
And then block #3 was posted, so I checked it out. It took me a while to "see" the pattern as 4 Christmas cards. I couldn't visually decipher the card block, but once I "saw" it, I didn't understand why it took me so long!
I hope to sew up some fabric Christmas cards on the weekend for block #3. And I suppose I should admit that I have indeed started another mystery quilt!
Even though it's Wednesday, I'll link up to the Monday Design Wall posts over at Judy's.
