I had Christmas things on schedule this week. I spent all my extra time doing something for the kids in my care. I can’t share about it yet…..soon though. I had a blast with the project.
I didn’t have a lot of sewing time but somehow this week this happened.
Yep, I kind of started another quilt. I know, I know…I have many quilts in process now so what was I thinking?!?!
With the help of my daughter Kelli we did figure out how to make the block the way Bonnie likely made it-with a companion angle ruler. I’ve told you before that designers don’t actually write the directions for magazines so if you’re a die hard Bonnie fan and you read one of her patterns in a magazine it’s almost like it’s written in a foreign language. She didn’t write it.
Anyway, I’m making mine with a companion ruler like I am sure Bonnie did. I’ll share the measurements you need to make the hour glass pieces in a blog post on another day. I admit, hour glass blocks aren’t my favorite but so far, I’m liking this.
As far as the mystery goes…
We had a busy weekend with hog butchering so I admit…I am not done with the clue yet. I’ve got a good start and will finish before Friday. All the two-ies are done. They just need to be sewn together.
I do have the other pieces cut I just forgot to take a picture of them. I am loving the mystery. I think mostly because I love the colors…and of course more than anything, I love the me time during this busy season.
P.S. There is a sweet Marie Callendar giveaway happening here on the blog.
