First Monday Link Up

Here we are already at the Monday linky. How fast the weekend went.  I couldn’t wait to get my pieces all cut before starting to sew, still have a few blue “recs” left to cut. I’ve sewn 25 neutrals and 12 orange.

Not enough done to really see the variety of the blues but here’s my idea of how they might go together.

And the main reason I have only sewn a few.

I finished the quilting on the Scrappy Trips, sewed the binding on the front and have been hand sewing it to the back.

Now to link up with Bonnie and see what every one else has been doing.


  1. Oooh, nice start. Cutting is so....slow (for me anyway). I love watching it all come together as I sew it up! Pretty, pretty, PSQ

  2. Scrappy Trips is such a good reason not to be caught up. Great job! I enjoy seeing people putting their units together and guessing how they will be used. Thanks for dropping by TLC Quilts on this first Monday Link-up.

    1. I love visiting other blogs, that is the best part of Monday seeing what everyone else has chosen for fabrics and how it is going together, now to tear myself away from computer and sew..

  3. I am so tempted to start Bonnie's new mystery and seeing your progress makes it even more tempting!

  4. Greetings from Maple Ridge BC - You've made a great start on your units and Bonnie does call orange and lights "backgrounds" - lol

  5. Great start, I love the contrast between the blues and golds. I'm still collecting neutrals, can't have too many of those and she uses them in all her mysteries.

  6. I think you are right, and these pieces will turn into stars somewhere along the line. It will be fun to find out, anyway!

  7. Nice work on the new Mystery, Mary. I look forward to watching it evolve.

  8. I really love your blues and golds. They both are such deep, rich tones!
