|Lazy Sunday Detail-|
|Can you spot the "bad" block?|
If you have checked into my blog before you know that I had changed pink for purple,brown for black and swapped the neutral and turquoise. So the blue watery print in my neutral. I am absolutely in love with this fabric. I was apprehensive about my decision to make this change, but as I see this block come together I am feeling better.
I am using some constants: the turquoise, brown and yellow. Regardless of whether my fabrics for each color are scrappy or constant I am making sure they play well with this watery fabric. Did I already say I'm in love with it?
I am also in acceptance of lack of my progress. I only have 17 Clue 1 completed. On the good side, the rest are made into block kits and ready to sew. I hope to spend a hour each night this week, and have this step completed before #3 is released.
|Step one kits.|
|Getting ready to kit a few of step 2|
|At least it is cut into strips.|
My progress plan is to cut one or two strips for clue 2 at a time. Each strip gets about 8 blocks. That way it does not seem as overwhelming. Soooo if things go as planned Friday will find step 1 completed, and some progress toward step 2. In the past I was obsessed and had every step finished before the next clue was released. This year is different. Perhaps I'm learning patience.
So if you are finding it impossible to keep up, no worries. Follow Bonnie's suggestion of doing a few of each clue. I do enough to feel comfortable with the block. That way if I get stuck I can get help from the great groups working on this project.
Also check out the linky to see the progress everyone it making. That is the most amazing part of this project. Quilters around the world (yes around the world), are quilting together. As of this morning over 162 quilters have linked up for Clue 2. Yeah for Bonnie!
