WIP on Several Quilts

Snowy and cold here, so I’ve been doing lots of sewing.  I got caught up on Gyleen’s mystery quilt yesterday.  It’s not my favorite thing, but I like it better since I started trying to control the value.  It does use almost all pre-cut scraps, so that’s a positive!

Then I got to work cutting up the scraps (and a little extra fabric) from the Sports baby quilt into 3.5″ squares to make a similar one.  I did turn every other wavy patch 90° to break them up.  I have it about half sewn together now.

While doing all this piecing, I’ve completed thirty-five 16 patch (8″) leaders and enders blocks in blue and brown, so that will be in the que.

And Charlotte released Clue 2 in her mystery quilt last night.  I’m excited to work on that, as I know that one will look great!

Hope you’re all making progress on your projects!

One thought on “WIP on Several Quilts

  1. Love the quilts, especially the second one. I’m not doing Charlotte’s mystery this year but I am saving all the clues. Have too many other want to’s on my list 🙂 and not enough time.
