Have you been working on your mystery quilt?
Hopefully by now you have had a chance to check out Secret Window, the Debbie Caffrey mystery quilt we started in the May/June issue of Quiltmaker. You can also check out the the blog posts about the Step 1 from Carolyn, Denise, and Paula (me – hello!). There is still time to join our online quilt-along over at Quilter’s Club of America too.
In the new July/August issue of Quiltmaker, we gave you Part 2. Even though it’s the middle of summer, I’m still LOVING my fabrics -Winterberry Lane by Whimsicals, which is all about Christmas, snowmen, presents and peace on earth. Just wait till you see my border fabric – it’s a border print that was exactly the right width for the border (I love it when that happens!)
In Step 2 you get to start putting a few pieces and units together and make some little units using either templates or foundation piecing. (I foundation-pieced mine – I’m not crazy about using templates.) (Nor am I crazy about foundation-piecing.) (But taking off those little papers was SO worth it.) (Because I love my quilt.) To print of multiple foundations you can click here.
If you are working on your mystery quilt, keep us posted! I can’t wait for part 3!
