Well I receieved a pleasant suprise yesterday in blogland. My Dissappearing 9 Patch quilt I made in December is featured on the Sew Mama Sew blog in their 9 Patch Highlights! How cool is that? I felt quite chuffed when I found out. So it was with great enthausism that I jumped into AJ's Mystery Quilt today.
Here I am, all ready to go. Everything labelled and piled in zip lock bags. Whoever invented zip lock bags was a genius, where would a quilting girl be without her assortment of zip lock bags! I have had a change of heart with my feature fabric though. The butterfly print as much as I loved it, wasn't going to work. The blocks had to be 6.5 inches wide and the butterflies were bigger than that size, they would have looked odd with their wings cut off. So I'm using this print below, a Valori Wells print.
I don't know which one yet, maybe 6 blocks of each as 12 are needed. I'll see when it comes time to sew those bits, I'll cut them then.
So here I have my hourglass blocks, 9 blocks of those from these instructions here.
And here is my GHF blocks! Instructions from here. 32 of those! I'm certainly getting to practise my points lining up so far. I stuffed up on my left and right on these though. The blue triangle is supposed to be on the left, not the right. But that won't make any real difference to it will it AJ??
Okay, onto my flying geese now. This will be fun as I have never done flying geese. Bring it on!
