Christmas Lights Part Two



Slow and steady wins the race. That's what it felt like with this step of Christmas Lights. This step was really rather easy, but I managed to complicate it, but losing some of the pieces from Step 1. I think I made all the parts in Step 1. I just didn't have 8 sections to finish the blocks. Of course, I had plenty of the needed fabric so I stopped and made the blocks that I needed. They'll probably show up the next time I'm searching for something in my sewing room. Oh well, I'm liking my blocks for this mystery quilt. In about a month, the next issue of Quiltmaker magazine should be available to see the final quilt. It feels wonderful to have something completed!!!! I also hemmed a pair of pants for DH and hemmed some fabric for our school counselor. All three of these items have been on my list for too long. Now, I can think about the next project I'd like to work on. It's a Thimbles sewing weekend in just a couple of days!!!!

Your blocks look good and you are done in plenty of time. The next step isn't out yet!!! I haven't started this one yet because I made a promise to myself that I could do this one when I finished up my other Bonnie mysteries that are in progress.

Okay, I was holding off starting Bonnie's mystery. But after seeing your blocks I've been inspired. Just what I need, another project, NOT! It's all your fault! I'm digging into the 2" strip bin now to make those 4 patches.
