May mystery



I've been working on the May Mystery over at Patchwork Posse.  In July we will be doing a show and tell with the chance to win wonderful prizes :) This was clue one plus the bonus HSTs. I have a nice collection of bonus HSTs now. Whenever I work a block that has the opportunity for them I just sew them up and toss them into an ice cream bucket I keep on the top shelf of my sewing table. Eventually they will become a quilt.



Part two was to make a million and one flying geese. Or, at least it felt like that many. I believe there are 80 block #1s and 80 flying geese. Not sure, didn't count them. I just kept cutting, sewing, and ironing, and ironing, and ironing some more. I found out that I really don't care for the ironing part of quilting. I do love flying geese though.

I love your colors. I've never done a mystery quilt, but it really looks interesting. I have a basket for my hsts, and periodically take out a handful and press them when I'm ironing something else.
