Nice sunny day here in Ky but the temps are cool. Actually I like it cool. :)

Mystery quilt

Bonnie Hunter has posted part 1 of  "Easy Street"  mystery quilt. This will be my first mystery quilt ever so I am rather excited.   I have alot of  step 1 complete...

This is the same fabrics in both pics. I guess the difference in colors is the lighting from the flash. A photographer I am not.  Anyway if you would like to know more about the mystery quilt go here to Bonnie Hunter's  site  and she will tell you all about it... Come on and jump on the mystery wagon.. if you like scrappy quilts you just might like this one....

Something quilty...

Here is some photos of what I have been doing. 

Cutting out 2.5 inch scraps..
                                                            Sewing them into four patches.

Making tri-recs                  
                                        Hoping eventually that they will become a lovely quilt like this one.
                                         Of course with lots more sewing to be done. :)      I think I can, I think I can...
                                         Now I must cut out lots of half-square triangles, so that I can sew them together
                                         tomorrow while Bonnie Hunter is on in the afternoon on quilt cam..


I posted a Happy Thanksgiving post but just a bit ago found out it didn't turn out.
So I will say Happy Belated Thanksgiving to everyone here in blog land. Hope yours was a great one, spent with family and friends.
Now before we know it Christmas will be here and gone as well for it is coming quickly..

Have a great weekend everyone..
