Process Pledge: New Quilt beginings

Here is a truth that I probably shouldn’t divulge, but I will anyway, I bought this gold fabric (8 yards of it)  about 5 years ago.  I was excited to jump in and begin and then found the whole idea overwhelming.  Too many blocks, all in varying sizes, with lots of little fiddly bits.  Nope, wasn’t going to happen so early in my quilting career.  😉

So, flash forward to this month and here I am confident enough to try again with a different quilt along and able to use up all this gold and cream fabric!  The color scheme is the same with a bit of Cobalt added as stones and border bits.

This new quilt along I have joined looks to be challenging, but the blocks are all the same size.   I know you will be disappointed not to see my completed blocks as I finish them, but the rules for the joining won’t allow me to share my completed blocks until the end of December when the quilt top is all done!  Never encountered this before, but that’s OK.  I can at least let you in on the colors I have chosen and what I have accomplished thus far.

Here are 16 half square triangles

This will be the fourth block completed today and has me caught up with the rest of the group.


Because this one is a mystery quilt along, even I don’t know what the completed quilt will look like when I am all done!
