By the Third Week of the Mystery, Bonnie had me make:

350 Half-Square Triangles  (322 to go)

74 Little String Blocks (36 to go)

& 224 Hour-Glass Blocks (156 to go)!

The Twelve Days of Christmas kept going through my mind with these new verses!  I have a lovely pile of blue strings & crumbs building up, so I couldn't resist making a little (3 1/2") crumb block from the trimmings of my string blocks.  Not sure if I'll make more, but it is a great way to keep things out of my garbage can!

I'm thinking of my mystery quilt as a marathon, not a race, so as long as I plug away at each step until the next one comes along, I'll be happy for now. It's just so busy between work, getting ready for Christmas and playing with the little ones that I'm not going to stress over yet.


  1. looking great! You just have to keep plugging away. Isn't it fun to visit all these blogs that if it wasn't for Bonnie we might not see :-)

  2. Very fun! I spy some Dr. Seuss fabrics in there!!

  3. What great fabrics. How clever to make some crumb blocks. I can't add another project to my list. I'm already multitasking as it is.

  4. Wow, great start and such neat fabrics. I too live in BC :)

  5. love your crumb block, what a clever idea!

  6. Hi Terri, came over from the Orca Bay linky. Love your fabric choices. So you have a mind full of useless stuff hey? Guess what useless thing I remember from seeing the Eiffel Tower 35 years ago--that it has 2,500,000 rivets tee hee.
