Quiltville's Mystery is so much fun!
Here are a few of the 150 blocks for Part 3 that I finished yesterday. Only 200 more! 350 sounds like a lot but they are small so they are quick to make. I tried to use my darker blues so these have a bit more contrast than the step one mini hourglass.
This is how they look on the my design wall with the other clues. Hmmm, I can't even imagine what Bonnie has in mind but I like it so far. I am using greens in place of her reds and cannot wait to add them, hopefully in the next step.
This past week I made 2 more Civil War blocks and am thinking of a layout. Only a few more weeks left for this. I have to go back and finish a few I skipped but want to add in. I recently bought the red fabric with the birds and I plan to use it again if I can.
This is one of the quilts I quilted last week for my family. I began piecing this a few years ago, just starting with half square triangles and this is what I came up with. So glad to be quilting some of these tops that have been waiting for me. The quilting is an freehand scrolling feather.
I have it hanging on a spring curtain rod in front of the fireplace to help keep out the cold drafts. My son, Adam, took the one we used there before and has it hanging in his dorm. Evidently he really likes it and I never knew. Oh, I wish I had a picture to show.

On Friday and Saturday I had fun demonstrating the Handiquilter longarm quilting machines at the Quilt Basket during their Holiday open house.
And last week I finished another customer quilt that I promised to finish before the holidays.
Linking up with Quiltville's Orca Bay Mystery and Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday. Thanks for stopping by if that's how you found me and if not be sure to go to these sites to meet some inspiring quilt bloggers.
