Yep, today is Tuesday and I'm linking up with Freemotion by the River. Thank you Connie for hosting this linky party. Also, I'm linking up with Let's Bee Social over at Sew Fresh Quilts on Wednesday.
Sunday, I spent the day working on the October clue for my Midnight Mystery quilt. What I worked on was a big, and I mean big, square, when finished it measures 19x19". I'm really liking it and can't wait to see how it all comes together. If you haven't heard, I love mystery quilts and haven't been disappointed yet. Do you like them?
The first clue was to choose fabric. I had been wanting to do a red, white, and blue quilt for awhile, but this one took four different fabrics so I added in some gold. I didn't have the right yardage in my stash so I ordered from Connecting Threads and was very pleased with all of it when it arrived.
The next clue was cutting and then making lots of geese, more than one flock I do believe. 36 of those geese in all and then came clue 3 which was 34 square-in-a-square blocks.
Yesterday I was working away on the hexagon project. It was coming along very nicely and then I sewed the next piece on the wrong side, ripped it out and then sewed it wrong again. At that point I decided it would be best if I put it away and do something else.
That something else was a project I snagged from Marsha over at Quilter in Motion. If you aren't following her, you need to as she has wonderful ideas and is a great inspiration to all, not to mention she posts these wonderful ideas on Friday Finds. The project I snagged is from Jenny of Elefantz and is a Christmas Wreath Stitch-Along. I haven't done embroidery in quite sometime and I'm loving it so far, even though I'd had to redo a few stitches, okay, maybe several stitches. Below is a picture of the first hexagon which, as you can tell, is Love.
Later today I'll get back to working on my hexie project.
May your day be filled with quilting, stitching, and sunshine.
