5 quilts january, 3, 2022

 My 5 quilts progress report.

2. full stop quilt that Angela is doing for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.- nothing new done

3. rhododendren mystery - hunter - 

I am still working my way through clue 4. Lots of cutting needed and chain piecing took forever.

I discovered that if I chain piece my qsts like this through the machine

They will be webbed together for an easy sew to get the hour glass. I missed about 1 in 10 - turning them the wrong way, but, an easy fix.

We have had the crud over Christmas but, a negative covid test. It has certainly cramped my style. I haven't gotten much done at all.

4..  too many circles - Nothing new here at all

5. use a jelly roll - I want to make dart. Time to cut.
