Sadly, I have decided that Mystery Quilts are just not for me.
This cutting of 200 two-inch squares is for the birds.
I feel like I am doing the same exact thing over and over and over and over.
This pattern calls for about 96 – 1 1/2 in half square triangles, and about 100 rectangles with 2 inch squares sewn to both sides.
It’s killing me!
I am determined to finish this quilt top this month!! It has, sadly, been my goal for my UFO challenge for the last 3 months. 3 MONTHS! It’s like the weird family member that just keeps coming over, in my face. Geez.
This quilt just might get donated or gifted just so I won’t have to look at it anymore, for my own sanity’s sake….
On a good note, I have been using my Featherweight for the piecing. It almost hums when it’s sewing. I love it, it’s almost endearing. That thing is like a tank too, pretty sturdy stuff. (sorry for the phone picture)
Do you have a Featherweight? What do you love about it? Any books you would recommend I get?
