I'm quilting it in a straight line diagonal grid, which is the easiest for me on a lap size quilt, so it's actually going pretty fast. I hope to have it done by the end of this coming week!
But being the type of quilter I am, I needed a few breaks from that kind of sewing here and there during the week, so I got started on cutting out and then sewing for the first clue in Libby, the Hillside Quilter's Magical Mystery Block Quilt-along.
I had bought a fat quarter bundle called Penguins Love Colors from Connecting Threads back in early December, and this project seemed perfect for it.
Libby has a great cutting guide HERE, (Clue #1) for pairs of fat quarters, and each pair will make four 8 inch blocks. After pairing up my lights and darks, I started the cutting.
I'm going to have fun playing with these bright and happy colors!
Find Clue #2 HERE - and here are my first few sewn up!
Only a little bit of progress made, but I hope to spend some time getting more cutting and Clue #2 sewing done this week, before Clue #3 comes out on Friday.
