Last night I cut all the parts for clue five of Packer Solstice and started sewing away. I had only put five complete blocks together when I thought wait a minute...my quilt doesn't have orange in it! I had looked at my substitution list and saw it was yellow for Bonnie's blue...then I neatened up all the fabrics (all in one bag for mine and Kathy's quilts, we are using some of the same colors/fabrics) and somehow I cut away on the orange. Unfortunately that isn't the right color for Kathy either since she is following Bonnie's colors and needs blue! Oh well, I guess I am ahead on some future project!
So tada, here are my clue 5's all done, ironed and neatened up. We watched QuiltCam several hours after Bonnie was on and cheerily sewed away. I had about 15 extra so the worst of them went in a bag. I plan to redo them and maybe do a pillowcase or something with them.
Here are all the clues so far, my bin is about full and I am doing the 75 x75.
After that was done, I couldn't resist playing with the parts a bit--copied straight off a few other blogs but had to see what the imagined blocks look like in my colors!
Love them both, but suspect Bonnie will be WOWing us with her reveal. I can hardly wait!
Kathy has been sewing all week long every chance she had to try to catch up on her clues. Today she started working on clue four so I suspect she will get to clue 5 before 6 is out! She is doing the larger quilt so I am amazed she is keeping up....this mystery isn't for the weary!
Linking up with Quiltville! How is your mystery coming along?
