Week 7 Unity Update

Well this week we took the 272 half square triangles we made last week and added a bunch of 2-1/2 inch squares to build 34 8-1/2 pinwheel blocks to add to our quilt. It now measures 80.5 x 72.5

Week 6 Unity Update

This week Bonnie Hunter took pity on us, sort of. When I started reading the instructions, I gasped out load when I read that we had to make 272 half square triangles. The good news is that we aren’t making any blocks with these HSTs until next week.

Week 5 of Unity

This week’s instructions were so much quicker to complete. The quilt is now changing from square to more rectangular. I should have worked more slowly because now I have to help sand and paint the deck until the next clue is released on Monday. 😉😂😫

Unity Week 4

Bonnie Hunter took pity on this week and gave us a bigger block but we had to make 32 of them. Each block was made up of 8 half square triangles (HST) and one plain square. That meant we had to make 256 HST….yikes! Being the lazy quilter that I am, I chose a technique that allowed me to make 8 at a time.

I had lots of trimming to do to square each one to 2-1/2 inches. It took me 5 days to complete this week’s blocks and attach them.

Unity Week 3

I thought last week’s instructions were time consuming (not a bad thing during C-19) but this week’s pieces were even smaller and more tricky to manage. It took me until Saturday morning to complete it. I changed some of the colour placement to bring out more of the soft pink.

Week 1 of Unity

I’ve completed the first clue from the Unity quilt-a-long. It is the centre medallion for the finished quilt. I can’t believe how many people had the first clue completed within hours of it being released Monday morning. I made mine last a couple of days….now I just have to wait until Monday for the next clue to be released.

Mystery Quilt WIP

This has been a crazy week.  Thank goodness it was a holiday week so I had lots of free time.  I have cut over 3000 pieces of fabric and assembled hundreds of blocks but I’m still way behind.

I finished all the nine patches for part one:

ORLPart1

Part 4 finished:

Part 6 added a triangle to all the pieces completed in part 4:

ORLPart6StartORLPart6

So I’ve completed parts 1, 4 and 6 and I’ve got the pieces of fabric cut for parts 2, 3 and 5. I thought I was doing really well until Bonnie released parts 7, 8 and 9 in the last 3 days instead of the normal one part a week.  We now know what the finished quilt will look like.  I really like it and it is motivating me to keep going.  It is never too late to join us.  Remember to download all the instructions before they are removed from Bonnie’s website.    #quiltville #quiltvillemystery #onringolakequilt
