I'm doing it...

I know I have a million other things I should be doing...but I pulled out all the fabric and then I couldn't stand to just put it back. So, I'm doing it!!  What am I talking about?? Bonnie Hunter's "Roll, Roll Cotton Boll" Mystery, of course.  And I'm doing it the way its meant to be done--no new fabric. I'm pulling from my stash and from my scraps. Bonnie's colors are green, pink and brown with a cream background; I found blue/purple, green and pink as I dug through looking for three colors that would work well together and hopefully provide enough variety to be interesting.

First step was strip piecing and cutting into segments...172 segments!!! (I was counting my toes, puppy toes and horse hooves to get that high!)

Second step...half-square triangles.

Third step...I've just barely begun, so I'll save that for another post.


  1. yay...i am so glad you are doing this!

  2. Woo hoo! Me too! Gotta go do those step #3 blocks in a bit now...

  3. You haven't quit, have you? Anxiously waiting to see part 3 and 4.

  4. Haven't stopped; just slow. I have 26 of the 60 strip-pieced blocks done. Have a quilt on the frame that is making me crazy; should be done tomorrow. Then its piece, piece, piece!!
