More Mystery Quilt

One more post to end off the year...2017 is peeking around the corner! 

I've been hard at work and Clue 5 of my Mystery Quilt is Complete! Bonnie's Essential Triangle Tool is da bomb! I've tried triangle pieces on my own before with so-so results. It's all those "special" measurements one has to figure out that throw me off! This thing makes it SUPER EASY! 

I got to work right away on Clue 6! This one also uses the Essential Triangle Tool.

I made this looooong chain of triangles.

These were ironed open and since they were fed through the machine in order I just cut the chain between every pair and left the chain of pairs together so they wouldn't get mixed up. I only had to snip between the pairs and nest the seams and soon I had them all finished!

Bear in mind...I have not made these last two units before this. I was scared to do these! And yet, I have completed both of them in record time. Bonnie is such a good teacher!

Do you like my pink cutting mat? It was a Christmas gift from Dash. Along with the large Olfa rotating mat you see in the photos above. So handy!

My leader/ender pieces are adding up! I only get a few when I'm doing lots of chain piecing like this but look how full that box is! One day I'll have to move on to piecing these as four patches between my regular sewing. Bonnie is the genius behind leaders/enders too.

Ok, my studio is still trashed. I have piles of papers, fabric, tools, Christmas gifts, and every bit of junk imaginable still lying around everywhere. Now, I must be firm with myself and go clean it up!

See you in 2017!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
