Great to see everyone's color combos. I'm finally done my cutting. Looking forwar to the next step.

What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

Hello everyone just checking in waiting on the next clue (any minute) I have sewn all of my strips and cut about half so far. I'll finish them after work tonight. I changed my mind on the fabric colours and have gone for cream and a burgundy red not a combo I have used before. I haven't got to border fabric yet waiting to see how it comes together first.. Everyones colours are lovely can't wait to see all the finished quilt tops!

I love everyone's little squares. I'm done the sewing part but not all the cutting part. I'm hoping to do this during the weeken. BMW Tuesday quilting group is meeting for the weekend, so we'll see if I finish my flower quilt top first, then it will be cutting my pieces.. I find it so exciting to see the progress and how each quilt looks different.

Oh my gosh I am so far behind.  I haven't even cut all my fabric yet. I can't seem to get any time my dh keeps finding this that and the other thing needs to be done with snow and ice removal as it is starting to melt. We have an ice dam on our roof that is over a foot thick and as it melts it is coming in through the top of the window to the toddler's room.  Although it is necessary stuff its frustrating that it takes so much time and I don't get any sewing time. By time he is done in the evening it is time to put the boys to bed and I am beat.

Hopefully soon we will have all this stuff taken care of before we get the big melt and we won't have water in the house and I will get time to sew and get caught up.

I already have a question for step 3 but don't see a discussion opened for it. So, I'll ask it here as I don't want to proceed and do it wrong.

It says to mark the 2-1/2 squares for HST. That's just drawing a line corner to corner. Right? Do we cut them into HST or just leave them with the drawn line?

I believe Nana  means to draw a line corner to corner, like you said Judy, and that you will eventually make 216 HSTs like you would normally do. I prefer to draw the line and then sew a 1/4" seam on each side of the drawn line, then cut on the line to get two HSTs. But I guess some prefer to cut first and then sew the little triangles. It's your preference.

I read it the same way. The marked squares are set aside. No HSTs are actually made in this step. At least that is how I read it. Nana, am I reading it correctly?

The instructions say only to mark them. The last line in the first paragraph says  "set the marked squares aside for now."

remember, this is a mystery.

Someone is going to have to fill me in as to what the acronyms you are all using.   Like DH?   What is that?  I can't remember the rest, but all kinds of those things are used all the time.   DIL, I've got, I think = Daughter-in-law.
