We had a busy weekend here. Friday we had a house full of company for supper. Our kids continued their stay here Saturday and then into Sunday. I spent lots of time keeping everyone fed and doing dishes but that was alright with me because I had great help too. It’s deer hunting season here and we always have extra people around for that.
In between things on Saturday I squeezed in enough time to cut out Celtic Solstice. Then Sunday evening I got a little sewing time in. I am not finished with clue #2 but I have all of the chevrons sewn for one side of them.
I opted to go with light subdued tones…no poison green is allowed in this quilt.
Here is clue #1 all finished. The cheddar is really going to stand out. I am curious as how it will all come together…mostly pale and muted colors except for the cheddar. I’ll know more in a couple weeks as the mystery clues unfold.
Late last week I was able to get some time on the quilting machine. Kelli had heard one of the local towns is putting together care packages for the elderly for Christmas. We have a couple smaller lap quilts that we thought might be perfect for this. I quickly quilted a few and now have them to bind. I’ll show you more once they are finished.
I am off to keep working on clue #2. It’s a little more quiet without the foster dog, Dixie, here and without a house of company..but sometimes the quiet isn’t bad.
Today I am hooking up with Judy at Patchwork Times and Bonnie at Quiltville.
Make sure to stop by tomorrow for our “Try it on Tuesday” Giveaway. If you missed my New Year’s resolutions, you can see them here.
You do gorgeous work! I love the basket idea for keeping things organized! Can’t wait to see your finished mystery! -Pamelyn
Just like the last clue….it looks like you and I pulled from the same stash!
Can’t wait to watch yours come together.
I think your muted colours look beautiful together! Getting all those chevron pieces cut and marked takes a long time, doesn’t it?
I love your colors for CS! There will be lots of happy elder people in your community with your beautiful quilts!
Your weekend sounds like mine–house guests which meant too much cooking and cleaning and not enough sewing! Your colors look great. I really like the blues you used.
How do you get so much done! I have the second clue cut out and 11 units sewn. Clue 1 seemed to take forever but it is done. Hope I get #2 done by Friday. I love your colors much softer than mine.
I really like your colour scheme…I am just going with whatever I find in my stash following Bonnie’s suggestions and hoping for the best! :)
Loving the muted colors, Jo. It’s gonna be “the bomb.”
I like your subdued colors, such fun to see how everyone is ‘attacking’ this mystery.
I love your idea on how you are keeping your units organized! Your colors are pretty!
Love your fabric choices! It will be fun to see how it looks the same or different from Bonnie’s!
MMMM I think its gonna be great! Love your cheddars!
Loving your mystery colors so far!
Love your brownish colors. Nice to do this together.
I love that you chose different colors and look forward to seeing how different the result is.
In the photo it looks like you have one chevron sewn with the browns going up. I have been torn by Bonnie’s clue because it shows the chevron pointing down but the caption says “up-hill”. I have only sewn one pair together and may wait for the others.
Great colors and love the little bins for holding your blocks!
Love the repro fabrics!
