No more...

... horsing around, on my part. There is hand quilting to be done. A ton... a lot... of hand quilting. I ask myself what was I thinking. I added way more quilting than necessary.
 I want to have this finished for a fast approaching holiday. Wish me luck!

Beginning a mystery

There is nothing quite like a good mystery, in my opinion. Whether it be a  good book or the latest quilt mystery from Bonnie Hunter . They both keep you full of suspense and  anticipation, wondering, and trying to figure it out.

The first clue was her fabric choices. I knew I couldn't exactly match up her color choices. I needed to work from fabric that I already have. So I pulled all my pieces together. This is where I started second guessing myself.  What if the butler did it, or my fabric choices didn't turn out right? AHHH!

I pushed past the nerves and started the first part. I guess that's the whole point of a mystery. You just don't know how things will turn out. Maybe you just have to have faith it will turn out. After all it's just fabric!

At this  point, I am quite happy with my progress. I have all 194 patches done with out a tear drop.  Now I can't wait until Friday to see the next clue/step.
