Leah, it will give you an excuse to buy more fabric for another project or just to fondle.  LOL

I agree with kris,

 The fun is in the journey getting there. If you have figured it out, please do'nt post it and ruin the fun for others.

Marie:

Carol nice colors.  Did you get to work on it today like Ms. Smarty Pants?  LOL

Yes, Marie. I did this week's steps today - will post the photo.  Also worked on a scrap quilt - it's almost done, qayg block by block, I like it better than trying to quilt the whole shebang on my regular machine, but still have to cover the seams when you've got it together, so six of one, half dozen of the other, I guess!!  I need this one soon for an auction donation, so wanted to finish the whole thing myself to keep costs down.

Patricia Schlindwein:

Jeanine - I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think you had better check that little piece that we had to do 72 of, I think #10,  I am pretty sure you sewed the second piece on wrong.  It is suppose to look sort of like wings. 

I tried laying out the pieces in a pattern today and my idea is very close to yours, I hope we are close.

 

patricia I sewed mine the same way they are supposed to be sewn this way, it forms like half a triangle when its done, this is step 10......

Sandy H.:

I made a sample block to be sure.  It will not matter if the 4 patches are turned except if you have been following the pressing instructions your seams will not butt up.  Just be sure you keep them all going the same way.

 

Sandy,

Thanks so much for checking it out for me. I stopped working on it when I noticed the snafoo because I only had one side done. I was hoping it wouldn't have to rip them all out. Now it is time to get back to sewing. yippee!!!

Well, I fixed my triangles that I had sewn incorrectly.  I also found other blocks in my project box that I didn't take into consideration on my previous sample block.  So I guess I am back to being totally confused about this one.  So I went back to working on charity quilts.  :-)

Carol each step I see I regret not having started this mystery.  I just have too many things that have to get done and until yesterday I hadn't sewn a stitch in weeks. 

Good luck finishing your auction donation, be sure to take a pic and post it.  The idea of QAYG is a good one but it also has it's draw backs like you say but the savings is considerable and that makes it worth it.  Have a good day.

All these fabric combinations look great!  I still haven't tried to make a puzzle with the new steps  but I will try before Friday.  I have to agree, it is fun to discover the outcome on your own.  With all the not so right combination, you might end up creating a new pattern!   I can understand how easily a person could cut up more than needed.  In my case I didn't get a chance to cut all at once, so cutting in small increments you end up thinking that you are at one step when you are at a different one.

Have a great day.  A four day workweek for me.  Yeah!
