Design Wall Monday and...


...Quiltville's Monday Mystery Link Up Party



It finally arrived! Clue 1 for Quiltville's Grand Illusion.  On my design wall are 20 blocks.

I had grand plans to sew all day Friday and Saturday.  You all know what happens when you make plans!  I did get all the parts cut. I finally have all my half square triangles sewn and 30 blocks are sewn together. I have 40 more yellows to sew to HSTs and 68 of the blacks.  I know I'll have a good sewing week because the work week begins again tomorrow, my house is clean and laundry is almost caught up. :)


I did some unsewing and resewing of squares to get all units of Cascadia to match.  With this many pieces, correct seam allowances are very important. Now I need to find a backing and binding for this. I'll do some simple quilting and have a cute mini quilt.

Today I'm linking up with Patchwork Times and Quiltville.

Very pretty mystery blocks! And your Cascadia is amazing... I love it! I hope to get mine together this week too.

Bonnie said...

You've done well this week to get so many of the mystery quilt blocks done. And, what a great use of scraps on Cascadia. Nice job.

Vireya said...

Hooray, it's mystery time again! Pretty blocks on your design wall.

Your GI blocks are looking great. you will be done in now time with all your prep work. The scrappy mini is fabulous! That's why I love sashing - less matching of seams...

Both mysteries looking good!

Your scrappy GI blocks look great. Just getting all the parts cut out is an achievement. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next clue is.
