Yesterday the first clue in Charlotte Hawkins’ new mystery quilt along was posted, and with the help of yet another snow day, I’ve started right in.
This quilt is called Surrounded By Scraps, and involved cutting a lot of small squares and rectangles that today I started chain piecing into 4 and 9 patches.
It is all about the 1 1/2″ squares for this first clue.
There is plenty of time to get all of this ironed and finish sewing as the next clue isn’t until February. When we will probably still be out of of school . . .
These icicles are the only real sign that any melting is occurring.
