28.0 SQ Ep 048 – TaDa – Mystery RevealedOctober 21, 2012
Ya know how hard it is keeping a secret from yourself? Sometimes it’s relatively easy. You do things and you don’t always know why.
Sometimes its a tiny bit hard. Once you see something, you can’t unsee it.
Well as I mentioned in my previous episode, I went to a mystery quilt workshop during the weekend.
I broke into my thoughts about halfway through the quilt top center to share with you some of the things I was thinking about when making this quilt.
For some reason, I am not wanting to write about this as much as I want to just talk about it.
So we started here with all the precutting & presewing.
And then at the workshop had several steps to do (pics 1 after another after another)
For a while I was fooling myself into thinking that I really didn’t “know” the pattern.
I saw step 8. Then I had to make a decision about the coloring based on my light fabrics being different.
Once I settled on the grouping, I had things spread out everywhere in this tiny room!
So here’s the center (taken inside).
But as you can see a galloping horse in the middle of the lighted forest would see this way.
Which I admit, is pretty nice.
Then the way I have the ta-da triangles to make the first blocks, you can see one section of it here.
Pin it down to sew.
Some of my “fat quarters” of fabrics sewn on the ta-da triangles.
Hopes this helps explain a little better. Watch the finished size, does not mean finished size of unfinished HST! Who knew?!!
What do you think about doing mystery quilts??
