My Hand Quilt along Progress and The Mystery Quilt Along

Mystery Quilt Along….AKA the Fluffer Nutter Butter Quilt.

OK, so while I like the Mystery Fabric, I found it weird.  Not a bad weird, but a good weird. WaterMark_2018-01-14-20-41-26When I purchased the fabric, I though it was grey.  However, when I received, it was sort of a light green/grey.  I had one thing in mind and then had to change gears when I actually got the fabric.  So, I went into my stash and decided to use my weird batik.  Not sure why I call these my weird batiks, They just struck me as odd, not in a bad way.  So, Here is what I started with to get to my block.  This block is about 6 1/2 inches square, so I will need quite a few.

Hand Quilt Along

WaterMark_2018-01-28-19-05-05So, not tons of progress here…..but some.  The Dog Bone dresser runner is at about 38″.  i think it will never end and since I need it to be 54″, it may not.

THe hexie flowers are coming along.  There are WaterMark_2018-01-28-19-04-46about 24 1/2 half of them completed.  I have no idea how many of the I actually need.  I thought I was going to get a lot done today at the swim meet, but ended up not even finishing one.  Too many distractions.  I really need to get more of both my hand projects done.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. encourage the kids to join band…you can get a good deal done at band concerts…or just set fifteen-twenty minute timers a few times a day for a creative break. You’ll be surprised how a little time each day gets you there.

  2. Some days are just like that aren’t they. Maybe take some dog bones to work and do some at lunch? I was always working through my lunch hour, and when I first joined the SAL, that was how I made sure that I took at least some break. Don’t worry you will finish, but maybe it could be a little shorter!😉

  3. Your weird batik fabrics are beautiful 😋 It took me some time to figure out how to use the fluffer nutter fabric because it was a new patten style to me too. It really works in your block! Your hexie flowers are so pretty; slowly but surely as they say!

  4. It will be interesting to see how your “weird” fabrics work together. I love stitching hexies but they get put away until I travel, then I dig them back out. I have double diamonds in progress and originally thought I should make a king size quilt…5 years ago. LOL….the rest of my life I will be stitching them. When I am dead, I hope someone picks up where I left off. I enjoy the process! (Maybe I should switch to a table runner and finish….hmmmm) I love your dog bones and that you are joining the pieces together already! I punch my papers with a Fiskars punch and “trim” 2.5″ scrap squares. I can see how the accuquilt cutter would make cutting the fabric would make it “less messy.
