Monday Making


Well I didn't get it quilted, but I did get the Two Step Mystery quilt into the flimsy stage.  Happily, this was all from gifted and my scraps married together.  The last border fabric came in the door recently and was perfect for this.  This will be another donation quilt for the Wounded Warrior Winter Games at Windham NY this December.


Now I can start something new.  I love any hue of blue and was digging around for more blues to add to Keven's Mystery when I came across this kit.


I bought this kit 3 years ago at an 80% discount - just for the fabric.  BUT with Sarah's 12 Day's of Christmas and the Trip Around the World quilt (which I cut fabric for) I decided that it was going to become the quilt intended and any left overs will go into the Mystery Quilt.  I can always make the other one another time.


The large pile of blues and other colors for Kevin's Mystery quilt.  Step two has come out so I might leader/ender that as I piece the TATW.  Multi-tasking at it's best!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. The Two Step Mystery quilt turned about beautifully. I really like that deep green border. I'm a fan of just about any blue. Looking forward to seeing your blue scraps become blocks.

  12. Very pretty mystery quilt--love the striped border. I seldom sew with blue and have very little of it in my stash, but recently have enjoyed making a blue and white quilt, with a bit of rust thrown in. Enjoy your well aged kit!
