… 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 …
