Winning!Sewing!

I don’t know how I forgot to mention that I won something yet again from the 2016 Finish Along! I only finished one of my Fourth Quarter Goals, Scrap-in-a-Box, but my name got chosen. I won a $20 gift certificate from Sew Me a Song. I used it to purchase a gorgeous bundle of text fabric.

I’ve also been working on cutting fabrics for Charlotte’s Mystery Quilt, Surrounded by Scraps. My goal was to get all the 1 1/2″ squares cut so that I could get the four-patches and nine-patches done by the end of the month. Then I could finish cutting the pieces before the next clue came out.

I made some progress today! I finished cutting the squares and sewed 200 two patches. I have 200 more to sew to get a start on sewing the four-patches and the beginnings of the nine-patches. Here is what it looked like after the first one hundred. And here is what it looked like after two hundred. What have you been up to?

Quilt on!

    Nice haul, congratulations Gretchen! And woot for all that cutting!
    I I’m thinking about scanning my Grandparents’ old letters to me and print them out on Spoonflower.

      Kati, that sounds like a fun project!

    What a lot of work! Good for you. I love the text fabric as well. What am I doing? I just updated my 26 projects list and will post it in the next few days. Sigh. I might be back up to 26 Projects.

      Jaye, 26 isn’t bad, is it? I’d be more worried if you were down to zero!
