Good scratch

I have been able to scratch that sewing itch. Yesterday I was able to assemble all the blocks for the Mystery Christmas quilt. 

I was fortunate enough to have all the fabric that was required to assemble this quilt. But I did not and could not find what the finished quilt was supposed to look like in the stuff I had. So I went online, went to a past post of mine, followed the links to try to find out what the last clue was.  I tried and tried to until I decided well I can't find the last clue, maybe I can find a picture of the finished quilt.

With a little more digging and 30 or 40 minutes later I found a picture of what I believe is what it's supposed to look like and so that's what I duplicated on the wall and it worked.
So now it's just a matter of putting the blocks together.
Then I can have that one checked off my list.

I have done a few more circles for the I-spy quilt, made from the Quilty 365 circles. I'm having a talk with myself about whether to do just one a day or a couple of them in a day, seeing how I am making two quilts.
It will take more blocks, so I'm thinking I'll just go ahead and make some extras.
Plus I need to be able to include each quilt one circle of a particular fabric.
So why not make two of those on the same day.

And here are the ones I have done the past couple days. 
While watching television with "the man at the place", I have been working on some hand quilting. And I have to stay since he's been home for the holidays I have had more sedentary time.

I have been able to put in a good seven hours of quilting on my quilt that these past couple days.

And was able to also complete a corner block for the Words to Live By quilt. 

Picked up a new iron yesterday. Couldn't do all I needed with that small one I was using. 
So as you can see I've been scratching that itch pretty heavy and loving it every minute.



  1. Wow Kat,
    wonderful makings and all the finishes. What a great progress and so beautiful.

  2. Wow, you are on fire the speed you are going. I am thrilled you managed to find a picture of the Christmas quilt which enabled a finish. Your work is stunning!

  3. This is my new favorite Christmas Quilt! I am filled with admiration at how much you do every day, be it quilting or farming.

  4. You did get a lot done over the holiday. The Christmas quilt looks great. I like doing mystery quilts, but I'm always afraid that I'll misplace a step and not be able to finish a project.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
