Whoo Hoo - I'm back
on line, that is.
Have been having heaps of problems with Blogger. Hopefully all is well again.
In the meantime I have been busy, busy, busy. I'm participating in a Mystery Quilt through my Monday night group. It is from the Bedford Mystery series. This series of mystery quilts began in South Aust by a couple of quilters as a means of raising money for a local charity. It is also the first Mystery quilt I've done and am enjoying it heaps.
Unfortunately, in my haste to get started I didn't take early photographs of the first three steps - there are 6 in all. Step 1 was the selection of fabrics - I chose to do mine in 'country colours' - safe.... Step 2 was to make 4-patch blocks and strips with 1/2 sq triangle on the end. These blocks are some of the ones finished up to Step 3.
This next photo is Step 4. These strips are the same construction as part of Steps 1-3, but are longer. Hopefully the latter bits will be finished very soon.
A bit hard to see on my 'design wall' as I have used a cream for the light colour material and my design wall is made from a cream flannel sheet.
In the meantime I have also finished some ATCs that are due to be posted very soon.
