Lazy Sunday Mystery Quilt
Yesterday did end up getting in the 90s…..hot, hot! We turned on the A/C, then in the evening the wind kicked up and we got our first good storm in a long time and even lost electricity a couple times. Today temperatures are supposed to in the low 70s with little humidity so……we have opened the windows again!
I spent most of my time yesterday working on Bonnie Hunter’s newest mystery quilt that appeared in the last 4 issues of Quiltmaker. The block size is 10 inch and I can’t remember what the finished size of the quilt is. I did keep my seam ripper handy and….the last row I sewed on upside down. It had to come off and I had used a pretty small stitch…..so that took a little time to take it apart.
I still have 3 different borders to put on this but….I carefully folded it up and I’m going to work on something else today…..I may work on this again next week.
Here is what I have left to work on….lots of pieces for the border. Usually someone figures out how many pieces are in one of the mystery quilts, does anyone know?
It was really interesting to read the comments yesterday and see how many quilters work the same way I do. Then there is Kelly from My Quilt Infatuation who works on just one quilt at a time and has really been showing us some beautiful quilts and projects lately!
Another thing that I enjoy…..that most don’t….is making the same project more than once. If I make a table runner (one coming up) that has beautiful fabrics and a neat pattern….I’ll make it again and again…..will you?
