TWO MORE DAYS!
Less than 48 hours from now our Grand Illusion Mystery will be up and running!
I wanted to remind everyone of the Grand Illusion Mystery TAB at the top of the blog.
All of the links to all the parts, and the Mystery Monday Link-Ups will be found there and will stay there until retirement.
Please, before sending an email with a question, or asking questions on our Open Studio Group or on facebook, or even a personal message on facebook with a question about the mystery --- please read the files. All the info is there. Go through it – often.
There is a lot of this going on here at Quilt Villa this weekend:
Sadie has found her spot right next to Grandpa Bill!
She’s no dummy –she knows a good thing when she sees one, and there are lots of pets and scratches and tummy rubs going on!
I spent some time yesterday while Dad was napping – I posted some Galaxy-Gram quickie photos last night from the comfort of my binding chair.
In an HOUR I sewed this:
8 block quarters trimmed and ready!
Photos of trimming.
When trimming these units I like to use an oversized square. This one is a 12.5”
The use of this ruler ensures that I do get a SQUARE corner, because those angles have to be just right if I don’t want volcanoes when I join the triangles into blocks.
And so I don’t need to use TWO rulers, one for the square corner, and one for the long side of the triangle, I go big. One ruler does the job:
Just longer than that hypotenuse!
I also made progress on THIS:
Binding is done, sleeve is done, label is signed!
TWO. MORE. DAYS!
It’s cold and rainy up here on the mountain, and just above us – the Blue Ridge and beyond are getting snow. I love being just part way up the mountain because most of the snow just misses us. We can look across and see the snow line, but we don’t get the worst of it.
It’s a good day for staying in and enjoying each other’s company. There will be some baking today and more binding ----
The mystery (A different one!) I’m teaching in Plano for New Year’s needs that binding and sleeve/label finished as well.
It’s a week of fine finishes for me up here at Quilt Villa!
Boys arrive tonight….
Life is VERY VERY GOOD!
