Party Mints - Boy

Taking a break from the two mystery quilts and pieced the boy version of "Party Mints" that I bought as a kit at the Quilt Box in Dry Ridge, KY.

The rows--not sewn together yet. Above them is the girl version.

What am I going to do with all the yellow in that one row? The cornerstones should have been different than the larger blocks in that row. I should have taken a photo before I sewed the blocks. Perhaps I would have seen that? Nah, maybe not. I'll move them around and see if it will work or rip and re-sew some seams.

Gloria - told you I didn't have an eye for color


  1. Hey there! Have added you to my list and will pop you on my side bar list later this afternoon. At the I'll list you as Hooked on QUilting unless you get back to me with your first name. Hoping email will be back up tonight, but after three and a half days, not holding my breath!! Just spending most of the day stitching instead and pretending that I do not live in a technological age - well, except for the DVD player of course! Tee! Hee! Hee! Happy stitching and Bear Hugs!

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project
