After ignoring my blog for months, I have finally decided to get with it. It seems I am so busy all the time and I can’t for the life of me figure out what I am so busy doing. I haven’t done much sewing or quilting for that matter and for sure I haven’t slaved away doing house work. I think I just need to get myself more organized.
I am participating in Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery Quilt “Easy Street”. Bonnie is the Queen of scrap quilts. I was lucky enough to attend one of her workshops through my guild Brunswick Quilters. While she was here she finished a quilt and named it Stars Over Shallotte. I have started all of her mystery quilts but have not finished them. Seems life keeps getting in the way. But, I am determined to finish this one and on time.
I have chosen homespun fabric for my quilt. I usually just follow what the designer does with color, but I am stepping outside my little box and picking my own fabrics this time. Hopefully I haven’t made a mistake. 🙂
As usual I am behind. The second clue was posted already and I am just beginning. My dear husband Gary will do all of my cutting. I am so lucky that he likes to do it since I am not very good at cutting. And I think he is afraid I’ll cut myself with the rotary cutter.
I am off to get my fabric cut and to start my first step. Oh yeah, I need my easy angle ruler and my companion angle too. I love how Bonnie always uses the same tools when she does her mysteries.
