The last set of instructions for the Just Takes Two Mystery were posted on Dec 1 and I have the final layout now too. I have 99 out of 100 done. Still haven’t attempted block 23 as it is all hand piecing…I like hand appliqué but not hand piecing. There are EIGHT pages of instructions! See why it is intimidating me!! It’s called Grandmother Favourite Compass…..it’s a pretty block but I hate using templates. I always forget to add the 1/4” seam allowance and end up with a block that’s too small. It doesn't matter how many times I remind myself to add the seam allowance I always seem to forget.
So I’m going to try to find another 12 1/2” block to substitute into the quilt. I've come this far I can’t quit now!!
Here is the last two sets of blocks, plus the ‘key’ block I didn't like at first but decided it wasn't that bad so just did it.
I don’t think I would have keep up with this project if it wasn't for Lori’s occasional nudge so it was a great project to do with a friend. So when you find yourself thinking about starting a new mystery that you would really like to see to completion ask a friend to work along with you. You might find you have a competitive side that keeps you motivated to keep ahead of your friend ;)
