Project #3 for the Hour-A-Day Experiment . . .

As part of my one hour a day sewing, I wanted to finish up some of my hundreds, yes that is hundreds, of UFOs.  While I was going through all my stash to find the fabrics for the Frolic Mystery Quilt, I ran across a couple of blocks from my "Peter Max" 4-patch stack & whack quilt and thought this would be a fun, colorful project to work on during the winter!!

I thought I had more than these two blocks finished but these were the only only ones I could find for now.

I love stack and whack quilts!!  In a way they are like a mystery quilt in that you have no idea what you are going to end up with.  Each block can actually be 4 different blocks depending on how you flip them.

In a future post, I will lay one block in the 4 different ways it can be sewn together and we can see how different one block set can look!!

Have you made a stack and whack quilt and did you enjoy or or not?

Part 2 of the Frolic Mystery Quilt came out and I will be working on that this coming week as well as this one!!

Oh, and today is my sweet Pop's birthday!!  Ha! Ha!  He would be 102 years old!!  Now, that is old!! But I do have to say I miss him and think of him every single day!!

Until next time!!

Black Friday - Part #1 . . .

of the Frolic Mystery Quilt was to cut a whole bunch of the red and blue strips and sew them together.  Then sub-cut them into 144 - 4 patches.  Saturday and this afternoon, I was able to get the strips cut and sewn together and some of the 4 patches cut, sewn together and pressed!!

I am pretty sure I do not have enough strips sewn together but I have until this coming Friday to complete this task before Part #2 comes out!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Well, after seeing all the fabrics in a picture, I think I am mostly ready for the first clue reveal tomorrow for the Frolic Mystery Quilt.

Even though the "red" is not the same purply-red of the paint chip, I did have lots of reds that will go together and work with my other colors.

My light blues are a little on the weak side but I was so impressed with my stash that it was able to cough up that many different pieces that worked for the turquiose color.  The two light colors are suggested to use different fabrics for those colors but I will be using just one fabric for each of the lights!!  Oh, and the green was so perfect you can hardly see the paint chip!!

I am excited to get this Mystery Quilt going!!  If anyone has a suggestion on a fabric to pull from the different groups please take the time to leave a comment!!  You can click on the picture to get a larger look!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day of family, food, love and hopefully a nap!!  Until tomorrow!!

I've learned a Lesson About My Fabrics in My Stash . . .

They are not fun, bright colors!!  LOL!!  And I have spent 3 days (at 1 hour per day) going through my stash looking for fabrics that will hopefully work for the Frolic Mystery Quilt.  I am close but still looking for a few more!!

It's already too dark today to get good pictures so I will post my choices tomorrow morning!!  In the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of the darling quilt I am working on for a client today ~

I should take a lesson from Diane about fun, bright colored fabric!!
