You won't be very far behind me.  I just started cutting 2 1/2" squares today - 190 cut so far!  I finally decided to use the same fabrics I used in my Farmer's Wife blocks, some 30 plus year old tiny calicos I bought in packs of about 11" x 13" pieces.  I NEED to use these up - I like them but they are taking up space in the shoe boxes I need for other scraps I keep accumulating.  Probably have enough for 3 or 4 of these quilts.  Will see how the mystery finishes - probably can use this pattern for the 38 x 44 inch wheelchair quilts I am making.  Would be a good way to use them up.  Haven't decided on a border fabric yet, but will use an off-white tone on tone for the background.  Finally--------I am getting started.  When my eyes started crossing and my needle kept backing into my finger (I hate thimbles), I decided it was time to take off from binding the wheelchair quilts.  Maybe I will get the pieces all cut by Friday and still be one step behind!

Welcome to the group - we have fun, sometimes we don't keep to the subject, but WE HAVE FUN!!!

I'm really looking forward to the next step - as well as doing this mystery.  As I was going through my box of precut 2 1/2" squares (thank you Bonnie Hunter), I found a stack of scrappy 4 patches already sewed together....more than 96.  Imagine how surprised I was to find I was already done with step 1 without even sewing a stitch.  That is going to make this quilt extra special for me.

What a deal!  And I thought I was lucky (thanks to Bonnie) that I didn't have to cut any squares, just count them out of my box.  But I now have mine 4 patches all done, too.

I am sooo glad I got my 4 patches finished and pressed Tuesday evening. I spent all day shopping and putting together the large hobby table [ with 2 drop leaf sides] and an office chair for my newby quilting friend. Tuesday afternoon I went over to organize all the things we have shopped for the last 2 weeks [she hadn't even taken them out of the bags. lol......Now tomorrow I have to help her cut the strips for her 4 patch corner blocks. Saturday my other friend needs help getting hers squared up for borders and binding.  Somewhere in there I will have to do my next step. Plus I need to take pictures and post current step. I may have to give up sleeping. lol I may never get out to my yard and garden...Oh well.....I do what is important.

Finished my 4 patches a few days ago but just now had the time to take a quick picture of them.  Boy, the colors look different when you put them together this way.  Can't wait to see what Friday brings.  I picked a busy pattern for my 4 1/2" block.  May have to rethink that soon.  May need to switch to a solid.

I also have a question for MNNancy......I noticed that your signature says you are in the Brainerd area.....I am going to be at Breezy Point for a week at the end of May and am hoping to visit some quilt shops in the area.....do you have any recommendations??

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Here are by blocks from Nature's Garden, I used the blanket stitch.  I need to practice the other stitches (once I begin to understand them)

 

Northern VA

"Fabricologist Resource Center" ...now doesn't that sound more impressive than "fabric stash" ?

Awesome job... Lashawn. Your firestar block is great also..that is one I have been having trouble with. First with using a Satin stitch around it..then once I had it completed the color choices I chose to go with my pinks works but doesnt seem to meld in with the other blocks. Im looking at making try number four at the firestar block..lol.  Will love seeing your Birds and Butterflies when the company gets the missing templates. :) :) 

 

Have a great day!
