Mystery Link Up Step #3

Today is the Quiltville mystery link up - click here to see all the wonderful mystery quilts in progess.
I did a bit of sewing on the clue #3 pieces over the weekend while watching The Crown on Netflix. I was sewing the blocks on Ethel, a short bed 301 Singer machine which makes a beautiful stitch, but refuses to wind a bobbin. I sewed until the bobbin ran out!


some step #3 units
Although I sewed right through season #1 of The Crown, one bobbin was not enough thread to get anywhere near the required number of units for step #3 of the mystery. That's okay.... my schedule is getting busier with Christmas approaching, so I probably won't be able to keep up with the steps from now until after the holidays. But I will sew a few of each of the steps as they are posted.

You've really done a lot, but clue 3 was a heavy one. I struggled a bit to get the blocks right size, but at last I did it. And now I have a little more than half of them done.

I'm struggling to keep up, too! I have 30 left in clue #2 and only did about 12 of clue #3. If only I could take a day off of work. :/

Your units look great! I love the varying shades of gold you used!

I won't be keeping up either with all the busyness here, but it is fun to sew a few here and there. Love your colors.

I like your choice of colour for the rectangles. I shall also be doing what I can each week, but don't expect to finish all the clues in one week.

Love your colours too. And isn't The Crown wonderful!

Vickie Lewis said...

Love your colors! I have 4, all different 301's and love them. Happy quilting!

You are doing great! I got 2 done for step 2.... 2 total! Have not started step 3. I think I need to spend a few evenings in the sewing room catching up.

Very nice units!

Pretty Part 3 Parts! It's going to be fun to see the variations of color this year. I have strips cut, looking for my Essential Triangle tool. Oh My where could it be???

Ha Ha. Ethel was my mother's name. Maybe I will name my machine. . .

Jo said...

You are doing a great job. I hope to get some of part 3 done this coming weekend..

Congrats on getting as far as you did. I've watched the first two episodes of season 2 of the crown, it's so interesting to see the relationships develop although some of the political machinations are also fascinating.
