Many who read my blog know that I follow a blog by Carole, called From My Carolina Home . Carole creates fun patterns and is running a “mystery” quilt this winter/spring. The pattern is called The Twist, A Scrap Dance Mystery. You can find the link to the pattern on Carole’s blog above, using the buttons on the right had side of the screen. It’s NOT too late to start. Because of the “stay at home” order many of us are complying with, Carole decided to “speed things up” on the mystery, so hurry over and get the pattern.
You might remember back in January I started with some squares (sizes in the pattern at the above blog) –
in two different sizes –
In steps 2 , 3 we did some sewing, and now I have this –(and a bunch more!)
and then came my favorite blocks to make – Step 4 had Half Square Triangles —
In the picture above you see my stack to square up on the left, and the one lonely trimmed one on the right. Using the June Tailor Perfect Half Square Quarter Square triangle ruler, I trimmed them quite easily and quickly.
Everything is “back in the box” until the next clue, on the 3rd Friday of the month! That’s April 17, and I am ready!
Don’t miss out on this fun project! Hurry over to Carole’s blog and get busy with your scraps! She provides PDF’s that you can print and take to the sewing room for easy reference. I tuck my printed copy in the plastic bin with the project so I can keep track. I use those handy little clips to keep units together in bunches of 10 when I need to keep track of the count. How do you stay organized?
People are posting their finished units on the Friends of From My Carolina Home blog Facebook page too. If you follow Carole’s blog, join in and follow on Facebook to see all the variety of fabrics people are using!
What are you doing for fun in your sewing room?
No yardage was used for this project except for background fabrics, and there are a variety of white on whites used.
