After talking to you yesterday, and seeing the picture of your progress, I decided to take the plunge, and join in the fun. I certainly have plenty of scraps to choose from. Zahn was here yesterday so I wasn't able to start right away (though I did watch the videos and made screen shots of the PDFs) - but today is the day - woo hoo. Like Misha posted, maybe this will also get my quilting mojo started up again. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement on doing this Ami.
Thanks Linda. Just have fun with it. There really is no right or wrong, just keep putting fabrics together that look good and keep going. I have all sorts of fabrics and just look at color and background. They all work together.
Yea Linda! I have been so happy to be using my scraps to make something easy. There is no deadline to get done! Several f us are having fun!
I’m almost caught up on clue #3, just need to trim out maybe 20 more blocks and then I can lay everything out for a picture. Hope I have enough border fabric, I think I have two options maybe three. I generally don’t buy more than a yard at a time. Might have to use two different ones, we’ll see how they’re utilized.
I am ready to sew my third clue. I should get to that this morning. I just got my machine back from getting serviced and I need to see if she purrs!
i am with you in that I don’t have tons of choices for borders. But when the 3 Dudes closed I did buy up some yardage in TOT colors, so I have a couple to chose from.
Ok, a sampling of the blocks so far and my two border fabric options.
When she was talking about border choices, she mentioned tone on tones or solids for those of us who had more of a “modern aesthetic“ going on. But I think that was only a suggestion, I did not get the impression that it was a general recommendation overall.
I like the way your quilt is looking!
i had a couple of prints that I tried for borders and my response was yuck! So I went back to solids. My choice may change when I see what she does...and when I get my blocks with the lights in there. I have them sewn and pressed this morning.
Thank you! I’m really liking some of these color combos. It’s inspiring me to think of other ways to use them.

I was going to go out and buy some green grunge because I love grunge and I know green will look great on my colors but I am going to hold off till I see more clues. I have fabric in Colorado but not enough of any yardage here.
I really want to work on the mystery but I am caught up so I cleaned the sewing room, vacuumed the floor, moved some furniture around. I have washed and dryed the background fabric I found at Walmart yesterday (the Waverly that Quilt Mama recomended), I got 2 yards of grey for the hexi 3D cubes I made for Shelley's rabbit hole endevor...........I am going to applique the cubes to the background and quilt on my home machine. I also finally hand sewed the very long bias strips (5/8 wide or I should say narrow) for the vine for the tree of life quilt. I made that into a mega long bias strip today that is a scant 1/4" wide and very, very carefully rolled it on a empty toilet paper roll..........gonna hand baste that around the quilt tommorow...............yep getting a lot done while waiting for that next clue.
