… no, I didn’t get the piecing for Clue 6 of the Case of the Secret Garden mystery quilt finished. Not even close! And Clue 7 comes out today.
I made 96 of these pieced spokes for the arcs last week. All stitched by hand.
All pressed and the little seams graded.
But there was no way I could manage to get the spokes sewn into arcs. I may try machine stitching one set of spokes into an arc today and see how it turns out. If I do and I’m content with it, I may go that route to try to keep up. Or I may just decide to work on this at my own pace and continue piecing it all by hand.
I have the various spokes all sorted into groups now for stitching, so whether I stitch them by hand or by machine they are ready to just pick up and stitch.
We could hear the St. Patrick’s Day parade yesterday. Seems Baxter and a friend and Cappy took part.
Afterwards he was curled up on top of “his” quilt, resting. I wonder if they had special green catnip for St. Patrick’s Day? Hmm …
Top of the mornin’ to ye, Baxter! Well, you can just finish the mystery at your own pace……..but it will still be fun to do.
You’ll get it done! Meanwhile, Baxter looks great in his green, I didn’t know he was part Irish! 🙂 Does he do the Irish Step Dances?
Too much St. Patrick’s Day festivities, Cathi?!?! tee hee
You always get so, so much done. Take your time and enjoy the process…
I love seeing all the “green” in today’s Baxteroon, including Mr. Gator. 🙂
