Mystery Monday, Part 6, 7, 8 & 9

When I left off blogging about the Mystery Quilt I was sewing clue five which was lots of chocolate flying geese. I finally completed those and cut peach/melon triangles for clue six. 

Clue six was adding those triangles to the chocolate/aqua triangles I had already sewn.

These units didn't take much time once I sat my butt down and did them. It was the getting off the couch from tiredness that took the longest. I'm still recovering from the holidays, I think.

Then, Bonnie took a wild hare and started throwing clues at us - bam! Bam! Bam! Four days - four clues in a row! Without the weekly deadline for each clue, I've fallen way behind. I'm much better with deadlines.

Bam! Part seven was sewing peach/melon geese to chocolate geese.

Again, these were a fast clue. Again...I took forever!

My bobbin was running low so I decided to just chain until it went out. It went out right as I finished the pile of goosey pairs! Ha! I did a quick clean up of my machine and wound more bobbins.

Bam! Part eight was to put some units into blocks. Like this:

I have ONE completed. Oh, I see I lost a goose nose. I don't die over it but I will make a point to be a little more careful with the rest. Pun intended.

Before I make the rest of the blocks I gotta remove all these dog ears I was too lazy to remove earlier. Why, why was I so lazy??? I'm kidding, of course. But it is boring. Time consuming. Damn dog ears. 

Bam! Part nine is laying out the blocks I haven't finished with sashing I haven't sewn together and setting triangles I haven't cut yet. Stay tuned It's getting there. One day. First, I'm trimming these stupid dog ears...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

So many pretty designs of fabric in your completed block, liking the look of this one ... one block at a time... and breathe... and sew, sew, sew lol.

I'm sure you are talking another language. It looks and reads like English but makes no sense what-so-ever to those of us, who like me, don't quilt. Dogs ears sound like a version of orts and try as I might I can't work out what goose nose is supposed to look like. Maybe I'll get it as you go along, your quilt certainly looks colourful hope you like how the mystery ends up.

LOL, I'm with Angela. I see no geese, or their noses!!! It looks wonderful, though. I love the peach/melon color in it especially. Beautiful.

Those clues did come thick and fast. But you're on top of it and will be done in not time. This is going to be such a lovely scrappy version.

I'm still sewing one color geese to another color. I have all of two blocks constructed. I'm sure it will pick up pace at some point. Looking good!
