I have been sewing the "Oh say can you sew" mystery quilt and the August step was a doozy! It took me almost 6 weeks to sew the required number of HST blocks in the bin, but this weekend I accomplished that goal and was able to start building blocks for the next step.
I'm not sure if this is the layout, but I sewed 4 blocks for clue #6 and did not like my yellow/gold 9 patch centres at all. It seemed like a good choice at the time, but the contrast was not enough to make me happy in the centre of these blocks.
So I tried a couple of blocks with a black 9 patch centre and this is much better! I will unstitch the 4 blocks with the gold centres, and make them all with black 9 patches.
If it's a 2 block layout, this is what it might look like (photo is very dark, taken late at night!)
I hope to be ready for clue #7 in October.
