I've watched the Quiltville Mystery for the last two years, but haven't joined in. However, Bonnie Hunter had me with her colors this year. I love coral and aqua together!
I had a bunch of random cream scraps I was able to cut into squares using mom's AMAZING GO BIG! Cutter from Accuquilt. What an amazing gadget! I am looking forward to using it again soon. I've thought about buying my own....but she's three blocks, so what's the point? I can share.
I then put it through the cutter....
(Here's the proof)
And got my strips without a lot of waste! Who knew? Mom's are amazing.
Then I cut my squares.
And then mom showed me how to do it using folding instead of scissors....(I'm using batiks, she's using prints).
Ta da! Lots of lovely blocks.
I can't wait until Friday for the next clue. I know what I'm doing this weekend.
I hope you get to quilt today!
I'm a big Bonnie fan and have learned to use the colors she suggests...due to an epic fail on my part, one time! LOL!! I must say, its been a great way to get out of my "box" with color. I look forward to working with something different ever year. Love your GO tricks. I need to work more with mine I see. :-)ReplyDelete
It's going to be beautiful. Would love to join but just can't take the time right now to do it.ReplyDelete
Great strategy for making your own jellyroll. Smart Mom!ReplyDelete
