Snow and Stuff



Another Snowy day here in the Portland area. It is just so pretty.






I think it may stay for a while because
Today it is frosty cold again and we got
Quite a bit of snow yesterday.

I've been working on my Quiltville Mystery
Slow and steady. I am up to Step 7 and 
Have about half of those done.ttrimming.....



I have changed mine a little and have made
A few more 4patch in place of her solid yellow
Pieces....


This was my before. Too much yellow.



And this is where I went.
Much better I think. 
Anyway it's a process and
I think this will be a beautiful quilt!

Planning on taking my bits and pieces with me
To see my sisters tomorrow.

Hopefully my plane will make it up and down.

I do love the snow but it does make transportation a little challenging!

And now we move on to clue number five.


      This week I was able to use one of my Go dies
    To cut out the clues for the Quiltville Mystery.
     It made short work of the cutting and is so darn accurate!

           Love that....


     These are my triangle in a square units.
     Chain piecing it!



     And I finished this quilt. 
          Well almost, I am binding it .


    Love the Sloths on the back, that Riley Blake, 
     Such cute stuff, and in flannel!





    And back in September I took a 
   Making Faces with Melissa Averinos.
   I am going to get one of my class projects
   Done before 2017.  Just the binding is left
   She contacted me to see if I might  Be interested 
    in being in a book she is writing!
                 How  Exciting. Heck yes sign me up!

Getting Caught Up!

Tomorrow is the reveal of clue number three of the Mystery Quilt, En Provence. 
I am officially caught up so yay me!
 I have been sewing a few things for Christmas in between clues. 
Today we had snow here which is a little rare foe Portland Oregon area. 
The kids were out of school and my meeting was cancelled, a good time to sew, sew, sew !



   I sewed with Bonnie a little this week.
   An impromptu quilt cam.




   And I discovered I had this dye for my Accuquilt!
   It made cutting this weeks clues quick, accurate, and easy!



   My week 1 and 2 clues all done. 
   I'm doing 75% of the units for a smaller version.



And I found the cutest flannel to back my pineapple flannel quilt.



Back to the holiday sewing. Enjoying the process!

A New Mystery

Happy Thanksgiving...

Visiting  my San Diego family for the weekend. I left my fabric at home for the new Quiltville mystery. It was on purpose but....Today the first clue was released. Seeing all the 4 patches being made. I convinced my DIL to stop at Joanne's and bought a quarter yard of 5 neutral pieces. Going to borrow her machine and start my blocks. Just needed a little fix.

Beautiful weather here. Sunny and warm. Nice to be with my son and DIL. And was able to get out a little in the Black Friday frenzy!


    My new neutrals.




   Love this slant o matic!



   Twirling those seams!




   Coming out perfect.

    20 down.....200+ to go. Enjoying the process.
