Christmas Quilt-a-long

I got a bit done on step two of the mystery quilt.  All  these half square triangles were made… and some of the blocks pieced….

Then I spilt my tea on a pile of half square triangles… I ‘m going to have to cut them again, not because they stained, but because they shrunk…

Rats!  There are only about ten of them and I’m sure I have enough extra fabric….
And I got two blocks completed so I can see what they look like…

Pretty! What did you do for Christmas Quilt-a-long?

  5. They look great. I assume this is the kit mystery that you said you bought last year? It must be fun to be doing 2 mystery quilts at the same time.

  7. Hi! I've never heard of quality cotton shrinking!
    Good luck with fabric amounts. Maybe if you have/find something similar, the blocks could go on the outside, or if a few, could go on the inside together?
    Best of luck, take care, Leslie
