WIP Wednesday - Sewing with the Squares

Sew day with the Squares!!  My quilt bee Q-Squared managed to find a day that we were all available.  It's been a busy two weeks at work that I haven't done any sewing, and it will continue to be busy for the next few weeks.  It was so good to get together with friends today.  Even though I had a million things to do at home and at work, it was necessary for my sanity.

I started the day working on the November instructions for the Mystery Quilt hosted by Meadow Mist Designs.

The flying geese were sewn to the square-in-square blocks.

I managed to finish all of November's instructions.  Looking forward to December's instructions.  There are no loose pieces left, so I guess we begin piecing the top in December.

These are the Court House step blocks from October.

I also started piecing my Night Sky quilt which is my November ALYOF goal.

I pieced the six orange blocks.  Only 30 more blocks to go......

And then I discovered that I wasn't suppose to piece the blocks together -- they were meant to be left in halves for easy piecing of the top.  Sigh......  I couldn't bear to unstitch them tonight -- I'll save that for another day.

  1. Everything is looking great! I still need to do my November instructions-but my machine is giving me tension issues and I think may need to get a checkup!

  2. I really like your color grouping for the mystery quilt and how the piecing for this month came together for you. And bummer about the night sky blocks; but at least you didn't sew the next 30 before figuring it out. :)

  3. Ooh love how these are turning out - jumping ahead with the piecing at least lets you see how nice its going to be! really like the colours in your mystery quilt!

  4. Your mystery quilt blocks look great!

  5. EnJOYed seeing your mystery quilt. I'm working on that one as well. I haven't looked ahead, so the experience is like reading a book without knowing how it ends. Love your colors.

  6. I love how your Midnight Mystery Quilt is coming together. And all those pretty oranges in the Night Sky Quilt will look amazing.

  7. It was a great day of sewing! I can't believe I finished the top, back, and binding of my quilt. Yay for Quilt Therapy!

  8. Love how your quilts are coming along

  9. Quilt days are the best days. Been so busy but I sneak away to the machine just before bed. Max has given up looking for me, he knows where I go ;) So glad you had a great sew day with the Squares - nothing better than quilt therapy!
