2864 Pieces

 Bonnie released the reveal and the end of our Mystery Quilt En Provence! last week. I was a little sad it was over as I'm having such fun with it. You may go to Bonnie's blog if you want to see the finish or you can wait and be surprised here.


Clue 7 was green, yellow and neutral quarter square triangles. Making these is a breeze and they create fun ORTs with the dog ears.


The last part was to make these yellow squares in sets of four. I had to go buy more yellows as I did not have enough to make each set different...and I really wanted that. This is also a photo of all the pieces to make the quilt...2864 pieces to be exact. 

OMG 2864 pieces!

Now to start putting them together...


First up was sashing pieces and those are finished, though not all ironed.


Then to make blocks. I have 2 finished already. These are not as complicated to put together as they look but I do it with the instructions in hand the entire time!

 Then it will be on to borders with all those neutral four patches. Maybe I will have a finished top to show you next? Let's hope!


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

What a great quilt the mystery has turned out to be (no, sorry - i couldn't wait and had to go look). Your block looks marvelous and the way you're zooming along, you'll have the top done in no time at all!

Oh my, you counted pieces ... I think if I ever did that, I'd *never* get a quilt finished, lol.

That's a lot of sewing but worth it for the end result. Your profile comments in the sidebar made me smile:-)

Wow, that's a lot of pieces but I'm loving what I'm seeing. Can't wait to see it all together.

Wow, that's sure to keep you busy! Beautiful colours.

Karen said...

I was hoping someone would know how many pieces it takes to make the quilt. I have 7 out of 16 of the blocks made.

Jo said...

Wow. Good on you for counting the pieces. It's amazing how easily it is all coming together

Teresa in Music City said...

My goodness - that many??? I hadn't counted them... It probably would have scared me off if I had LOL! I'm only doing half-size though, so not as many pieces. Yours is looking marvelous! And you will be done before you know it :*)

The mystery quilt will be lovely.

I have no words! Wow!

How fun! I love the color combinations.

Seeing your progress makes me want to be home where I can work on mine. I am nowhere near to you in terms of progress - still cutting neutral pieces for several of the clues. Looking at yours I am thinking I need to range into a bit more of a mix for my neutrals.
