Quiltville Mystery Link up #5

Five clues are in the basket! Finally, both Momma Mia and I are caught up. This is a first since the mystery began. We are both learning new things as well as improving our accuracy. We are using some of the same tools and some not, but in the end we have both worked on our own quilts and both helped each other. We are building memories.

She finished her clue 5 first because with about 20 to go, I needed to sleep. She used Bonnie’s colors and they are looking great!

After she finished all her blocks and I was working on mine, she counted all her pieces and parts and determined she was on track save for a few half square bonus triangles. She used the Strip Tube Ruler and knocked them out fairly quickly.

I finished my Clue 5 and then began my counting. I needed 15 more half Chevrons and 31 bonus HST’s. I put them both in my picture because “Why not?” I am using Purple in place of the Blue and used Aqua in place of Bonnie’s Green.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
