Quilting and Other Facts of Life

Okay, Mystery Step 2 Complete - Now We Wait...

Well, I have completed step 2 of the McCall's Quilting Mystery Quilt.  Using the unfamiliar sewing machine has made it a little bit rocky though.  For one thing, the guide on the 1/4-inch foot is right in the center of the right feed dogs so I was having some trouble sometimes at the beginning of the seam because it wouldn't feed the way I wanted it to...but the sewing machine and I came to terms with that.   This step is interesting because there were some relatively large pieces cut that were not used in the instructions in this installment.  I have my ideas about them, but we'll have to wait and see. 

Here is what I cut this step:

  These were the parts I cut out.

  Here is what I ended up with once everything was sewn and the instructions were complete.

I'm particularly curious about the large rectangles of purple because they are quite large.  Also, we haven't touched the other two fabrics. we have to wait another month and a half!!

I'm doing this MQ also and it is very irritating that I have to wait another almost 2 months to see what it is going to look like.  Love your colors.  Purple is my favorite color.
