So, I went to bed late around 12:30ish a.m., anxiously awaiting clue 6 from Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt. I woke straight up out of bed and could not go back to sleep at 3:30 a.m. I kept checking the website this morning until finally, when I checked just past 6 a.m., she posted a clue. Due to lack of sleep, I am still wide awake but the critical thinking skills are starting to fade, hence the question mark behind 6. Yup….verified….we are on clue 6.
So we get to retire the dark purples and start using the light purples again, along with some neutrals and the introductions of greens. I chose a caribbean greenish blue for my quilt, it seems to work. Here is the start of my clue 6.
I did not purchase Bonnie’s new essential triangle tool. I am making do with the companion angle and easy angle. Instead of having one tool I have 2, and they work. I am really surprised how well this ruler system works. I loathe cutting and to not have to square things up with the sliver trimming is very smart. Work smarter not harder right? Just snipping with a scissors the dog ears on the blocks :)~. I am wondering if I should stop doing that because I am taking warmth out of the quilt? That little piece does add a layer of thickness….ah well. I will leave them from now and see if they get in the way later when it all comes together.
Yesterday I had an XXX quilting event. No, not anything naked and showing skin. It was more of an extreme, quilty, sport sort of a productive day. The half hexi made with Moda’s fabric line Bee Creative, is pieced and quilted. That accuquilt cutter is amazing and takes so much work out of the cutting aspect of the quilt. I will hopefully have another finish before years end and bind this one in the next day or so to bump my final count to 14. Be looking for that post soon. Now, off to the QST races. Oh, and don’t forget to read my other blog! Thanks for stopping by!
