Design Wall Monday & Quiltville Mystery Link-Up

Have I said I am loving each step of On Ringo Lake???
If you haven't started yet,
check out the tab at Quiltville.
This is one of my favorite quilt units.

I made a whole quilt of this block with a larger half square triangle added to make it a square.
You can see what I mean as I start my own quilt from this block.
My finished quilt is here.


I love chain piecing.
I love creating the mountain behind my machine.

I love chain pressing.
I also love a hot iron and this pressing pad.
I learned (again!) not to lay my arm on the pad after pressing my pieces.
Owie, owie!

After finishing my units,
I pulled out my Tumbler's Leader/Ender project.
It's time to get this made into a quilt top.
It's already on my UFO list for 2018 but it's in the front of my brain 
so it's time to just get 'er done.
After all, I only need a few more rows.
How long can that take???
Maybe I'll have a top before Friday.
Maybe I'll have to choose something different for UFO #9 before the Challenge starts!
Wouldn't that be fantastic!?!

Check out all the fabulousness at

Your triangle units look great. I'm so enjoying seeing all the colour variations people have thought up.

My tumbler leader/ender is still in the cutting phase. This isn't unusual. I like to trim up my leftovers as I make them, but it doesn't always happy. Great progress on the mystery quilt, too.

These are absolutely lovely units! I can't wait to see them come together with the rest of the clues.

Hello Judy Dear...You sound like me...Haha...Beautiful units, I Love them...What do you think? next clue is Block assembly?

Mary said...

OUCHY on burning your arm on the Ironing Pad. It's bad enough to back your elbow into a hot iron when adjusting fabric. Have a great week stitching away on your projects while you wait for Part 5.

I'm a fan of chain-piecing, too! Look at all you got done! I love your black and red triangles - can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Ramona said...

I'm excited to see your mystery quilt complete with the colors you are using. I love the reds and blacks. Chain piecing and chain ironing is the best!

Mónica said...

Your units look great so far. I only finger pressed the seams on these ones, after all the distorting issues I had while pressing the previous clue.

Julie said...

Great job on the clues! What fun, but no and I am anxious to see the finished quilts!

I agree - there is nothing better than chain piecing/pressing! Great colors and layout idea. I admit to sometimes purposefully leaning on my pressing board to absorb some of the heat ;)
