Military Mystery Progress Clue #2

Remember when I said I used the navy polka dot that I had planned to use for the mystery quilt for the binding of the scrappy quilt? This shows what I decided to replace it with. I really like this one so much better so it all worked out well.

The second clue came out yesterday and I got right on it! It was a great way to avoid the things I should be doing. I bet you never do that!


It took longer than it should have because I didn’t read the directions carefully! I could have strip pieced these units.  Anyway, here are my finished parts so far.


Not sure I will get much sewing in today. I am working this morning, home for  a couple hours, and babysitting the rest of the day. Depending on when the kids go to bed, I might get a bit of hand stitching in. We shall see!

There is still time to join this mystery QAL, just look for the Yahoo group, Mystery Quilts 4 Military. Just a couple hours and how I’ll be ready for the next clue that comes out  Friday.

Have a great day!

    Quilting is a wonderful way to avoid other things, like housework and other boring stuff! Looking forward to seeing this quilt emerge!

  2. Love those fabrics! Find me a quilter who claims that she/he doesn’t use quilting to avoid less-enjoyable tasks, and I’ll show you a quilter who’s not being totally honest. Ha!
