Last weekend I joined the Just Takes 2 mystery quilt along, purchased, washed, and ironed my material, and generally, smiled all week. I cut the pieces for the first six blocks on Thursday. Rushing home from work on Friday evening, I was anxious to start sewing.
After a very quick supper I followed the instructions for each block, carefully sewing and pressing. I love that each one is different. It's not an assembly line procedure, sitting at my sewing machine and running dozens of the same pieces through the feed dog. In other words, very different from any quilt I've made in the past.
The lighting makes this pure white fabric look somewhat dingy!
I'll take photos with natural daylight next time...
With each completed block my smile grew larger. They are all various small sizes. This is going to be an interesting quilt! I decided to complete the second installment of blocks over this weekend so that I'll be caught up with the group. So check back here on Sunday night to see if I've kept my word ;)
And be sure to head over to Crafty Vegas Mom's blog to see what everyone from Friday Night Sew In has accomplished. Seeing all those lovely stitches is a dose of inspiration!
By the way, it's been snowing since sometime after midnight :)
Have a wonderful Saturday!
