It also should be BOM-day, but with two mysteries in the works, the BOMs are going to fall by the wayside today.
First up, Step 2 of Bonnie Hunter's "Easy Street":
This time, I'm pressing the seams open. I haven't sewn any together yet, but I will say, they come out nice and flat!
All 128 purple "geese" are sewn and pressed, I'm just trimming off the dog ears. Notice my metal cookie sheet, a la Bonnie Hunter? Great way to keep the pieces organized until they're ready to be stored in plastic bags awaiting their turn in the quilt! (BTW, I'm linking up to Bonnie's "Easy Street" linky here.)
I'm also working on a mystery quilt at my fav LQS, Ruth's Stitchery. This one is by Debbie Caffrey, a very talented and prolific mystery quilt designer:
I'm only one step behind on this one, but it's the second to last step! I need to be ready to sew all the blocks together by Wednesday.
I'm using Civil War repros for this iteration of the mystery. Notice the baggie of flying geese? Maybe that's why I'm behind on this quilt!
I actually made this quilt last year, but I don't want to spoil the fun for other mystery quilters -- so tune in again next week for the big "reveal!"
