...Mystery Monday Link Up, The Reveal!
Not my reveal. I have nothing to reveal other than 2 stacks of blocks--with more blocks in various stages of construction.
There is a method to my madness. I work on 3 blocks at a time. Thursday night, after the clue was released, I sat and clipped block parts together. I tried to keep from having the same golds in a block. That didn't happen though, I didn't have a huge selection of fabrics so that prevented that from happening. It also meant that each block had to be laid out with like golds being kitty-corner from each other.
This is the first time I have laid my blocks side by side. I wanted to just make them, press them and stack them until all the parts were ready to lay out on the bed. I couldn't believe the restraint I had. I was focused on blocks, that's all.
I should have been more focused on pressing. All of these 4 patches had to have the center seam unpicked and the seams sewn the correct way. I knew I should have double checked those instructions, but nooooo, I just went along as I wanted!!! And then I paid the pressing and unpicking price.
I have 10 gold blocks left to finish 1 is complete, needs it's final press. 1 needs the rows sewn together, 1 on the design board, 1 under the needle and 6 in the pile.
Then it's on to the setting triangles and borders. I'm hoping to have something to show off to the gals on Wednesday. I am amazed at all the fabulous quilt tops already completed. There are so many wonderful color combinations! Thank you Bonnie for another fabulous mystery.
