Check out these cuties!

I was commissioned to design and sew their dance costumes. There was lots of squealing and happiness out of the girls when they finally got to try them on. Everyone loves how they turned out!

Mystahhhry Shindig: Clues 3 and 4

Clue 3 we get to use a design called "Grandpa's Socks". I had to make 6 'socks' for this step and as you can see there are lots of little pieces.....

Clue 4 gives us a list of all the pieces and what fabric to use so we can go ahead and start basting. Mines coming along slowly but surely!


Find my post on Clue 1 and 2 HERE.

Mystahhhhry Shindig: Clues 1 and 2

I joined a mystery paper-pieced quilt along in September 2015, created and organized by my sister, Tonya. She makes really fun designs and I couldn't wait to see how this came out! She introduces the Mystahhhhry Shindig HERE where you can find links to the paper pieces and even a Facebook group to share your progress on. You can also find all the links and information on fabric and such right HERE. I plan to make the full sized version that will measure 62.5" from point to point.

Clue 1 is to make 12 large diamonds. I chose this fun sewing fabric which has all kinds of buttons, sewing machines, scissors, etc on it. Cutting out a large diamond window allowed me to see where I wanted to fussy cut my large diamonds. 6 of the large diamonds were then sewn into a star for the center of the quilt.

Clue 2 is all about getting down to business on basting the large 3" triangles. These will be used throughout the quilt design and it's easier to make them in a batch like this.

Stay tuned for the next clues!
