And I am happy to report that my Clue #4 tri-rec units are completed for Bonnie's En Provence Mystery Quilt (EPMQ)!
And I did them right the first time LOL!!! Actually, I really enjoyed stitching up these units. Because we had just finished making them for Clue #2, my mind was already in tri-recs mode and I was able to crank them out with no problems. And what joy to work with these rich purples!!!!
I'm now caught up on all the EPMQ clues so far, as you can see from my completed Clue #3 dark/light purple 4-patches shown in the above picture. Bear in mind again that I am only doing half the units Bonnie calls for because I am just planning to make a lap-size quilt - unless I end up loving it of course, in which case I have plenty of fabric to make a bigger quilt :*)
Since the 4-patches were so scrappy this time, I only cut one strip off of each of my purples, so it didn't make sense to use my Sizzix cutter for the strips.
However, I did use it to cross-cut the sections for the 4 patches -
How nice to be able to have all of them cut with one simple turn of the handle! I love turning my 4-patches over so I can admire the cute little swirls on the back (smiles!)
I'll be linking up with my fellow mystery quilters over at Bonnie's Monday Linky Party - click HERE to come over and see all the En Provence loveliness!
And for those of you who are still hanging around, I bet you are hoping for a picture of Rocky - right? Well, here is Mr. Snoopervisor hard at work making sure I get that perfect 1/4" seam on the strips for the 4-patches...
I think he really likes the vibration of the machine, because he only gets up there when I am actually sewing. After all that hard work, he decided to take a well-deserved nap - I spied two adorable little sets of kitty toes and an impressively furry tail sticking out from under my foyer quilt rack...
I think he likes to take naps under there because the heat vent under the quilts makes it toasty warm :*) He's actually inside the quilt there - that cat sure does love him a quilt!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
