In common

What does this:

 And these pretties.


 And a bunch of these....


 Have in common??

It must be it's the March mystery quilt going on.

On Monday I had my honey oil the machine and I got it all ready to go (yes, I really do piece on a hundred+ yr old White treadle, and I love it!). I got some of the fabric in the mail on Monday, and got a bunch of HST's cut and trimmed.

Am I just a lame brain, or does everyone have to take time to trim HST's?? And even when I trim them nice and neat, I still have problems getting my points to match nicely...SIGH~

That's the worst part of quilting for me, is all the trimming to make blocks nice and neat. Taking off dog ears and such. It's SO time consuming, at least for me it is....

I spent most of Tuesday working on the Mystery quilt.. I love testing these for Jess. She always comes up with a neat, pretty, fun design.

The mystery quilt weekend is this coming weekend, the 19th and 20th. You can still get kits and/or the pattern here.

I have the rest to finish today. And I should have it finished today, barring any unforeseen problems/issues not only with the pattern, but with the family.

Hope you'll come join in the fun this weekend. We will have a thread on the Q&N where you can share pictures, thoughts or ask any questions. It's always fun!

Have a great day!


 Thanks for stopping by, Dorian

  1. Oh how fun that you get to piece on a treadle machine! When I come visit you some day you will have to let me try it, I have always thought it would be so much fun.

    Can't wait to see your completed Mystery quilt. My fabrics are all cut and sitting in little piles awaiting the first directions.

  2. OOOHH I so agree with you Dorian, trimming is the pits - takes so much time away from sewing..lol

    I have my pieces all cut, hopefully will get 'caught up' some tomorrow.
