2018 came and was gone before I had time to do the sewing every month. I thought it would help me to do the monthly Mystery quilt pieces. It did not work out. Everything went well for the first three months, the next three month also! That gave me six of the blocks. The last three blocks were just waiting to be sewn. It did not happen in 2018!
The last Thursday in January 2019 I decided to sit and finish off the top.
At last, it is only the top of the quilt. The side strips are still waiting and then the batting and back need to be purchased before quilting can be done. Sigh! Still, a lot to do before it is ready to go on my single bed.
The holidays are nearly over and I’ve not done much on my to-do list. This morning I grabbed my sewing machine and in about two and a half hours I completed blocks four, five and six of 2018’s mystery quilt.
Squares and triangles
Four times this block
Four times colored squares, rectangles
Completed each one four time
squares and triangles
Completed square six
I enjoyed sewing these blocks together. There are four of each block. Now I have to wait for the last three blocks before we get the finished picture to complete the quilt top. There is going to be a reveal night end November.
I am bit late with this months block of the month. I picked it up a week ago. I cut it on Monday and started the sewing on Tuesday and did not finish it all. I thought I’ll finish it off on Wednesday but that did not happen. Millie my friends dog got hold of the cotton reel and chewed it Tuesday evening. I used some other cotton but could not concentrate on it for long. I still need to finish off the strips of squares and then sew it into blocks of small squares.
