I’m working on my first (ever) mystery quilt, and this one is being featured on Bonnie Hunter’s Quiltville blog.
This first week was to use the tri-recs rulers and cut triangles and star points out of orange, neutral and blue.
Here’s a few of my (mostly) finished pieces, I have some trimming up to do yet.
Here’s part of the miles of chain piecing that I have been pushing through my machine! I am enjoying the chain piecing on this project.
I’m having a wee bit of a problem with the tips of my triangles. Some of them are not lining up to give me adequate room for a proper seam allowance, so I’ll probably lose some of my base points when the actual joining begins (is anyone else experiencing this?). I have been using my trusty seam ripper quite a bit! But all in all, I’m pleased with the results. And I’m happy to be using my scrappy stash to make this project, and also to be using my tri-recs rulers that I purchased three months ago and never used before.
Hop on over to the Quiltville blog to see what other folks are doing for this mystery!
