Step #4 Mystery Quilt - Complete

Here's a sneak peek at how my 3 colours + neutrals look together so far.   This week's clue #4  for the Quiltville Mystery Quilt was to make 64 x 5 1/2" red string blocks. After they are made then you cut them into two triangles. I enjoyed making these little string blocks and I had help with taking the paper off the back an clipping apart the chain pieced blocks,  so it went quickly.  They are all pressed and trimmed and waiting to find a place in the quilt.

  11. These are looking good.

    I agree, it's hard to buy finished pillowcases now that I see such wonderful options when I visit the fabric store. I'll be looking forward to pictures of the sock monkey one should you get it made.

  13. Hi Linda, Your Orca Bay blocks are looking wonderful! I love red, yellow and blues together. I would have preferred to use the blue instead of black but mine is for my DS and black is his choice.

  17. Wow, at first I thought that it was a new quilt, and then realized that it was your Orca Bay. Beautiful colors and your arrangement is very pretty. The quilt in your header is stunning. I wouldn't have the courage to try it.
