What’s Happening 12-26-16

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a Merry Christmas yesterday. I know that this is a hard time for some people, and for you, I hope the Peace of Jesus Christ will come over you and make it an easier time for you.

I am slowly making progress toward my goals of getting quilts quilted and I am still slowly working on Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt En Provence. I have managed to get to the halfway point on all of the clues except for the first clue, which I have intentionally not worked on, and the one that came out Friday, which I have not started yet.

Here are some pictures of what is going on in my sewing room.

Here is my lone star that I put together while playing. At this point, I did not have enough of the purple triangles to make the complete square, nor did I have any other pink triangles to balance the star out so I called it my Rogue Warrior.

And last but definitely not least, my reminder to myself to line up the bottom of the triangle. I cut these with the Accuquilt go die and they seem to work best when they are lined up at the bottom of the triangle. I hated making these for so long because they would never come out right. My seam allowance was correct, but for some reason they would come out wrong. I now know that I part of the problem was that I was lining up by the top, rather than the bottom of the triangle.

I am linking up with the following sites:

    I am working on a similar block from a retreat that I went to in September – it will be interesting to see if we are working on similar patterns. I like the rogue warrior!

  2. Your color choices are great! Using the constants for purples adds a sense of calm into what could be an ‘overly exciting’ palette I think. My version uses constants in a couple choices also. Keep up the good work!
