This is the first time I have participated in a
Quiltville Mystery quilt and I have learned a few things
in doing this.
First, there are A LOT of pieces in a Bonnie quilt. A LOT!
Second, it makes the process much less daunting
when the process is broken down into manageable steps.
I need to remember this when I am thinking of making
a quilt with a lot of steps... break it down into small bites.
Third, I'm not a really scrappy person.
I try to control the scrappiness,
but with this quilt, that is impossible.
I Tried to just put the pieces out and sew them together
with very little fiddling, but could not do it!
En Provence is becoming a quilt!
All of the parts are assembled and ready to be put into the blocks,
Yes... I have had to use my seam ripper... a few times!
I can't totally just pick the parts and make the block.
These piles are blocks waiting to be made.
It's coming along.
Six blocks done and the rest are waiting their turn.
I am using the sashing pieces as leader/enders for the big blocks.
Two sashing strips are pieced with each block.
Hopefully it will soon be a finished top!
These blocks are a secret for now.
The preciseness of my cutting and piecing will be challenged with these blocks.
Be safe if bad weather is headed your way.
