my Tuesday timeout...

For the past couple weeks, Andrea and I have been working on Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery Block of the Month from 2011. Andrea signed up for the program, but somehow had never began to sew the blocks. The bonus in beginning this project together was discovering that if we cut really, really carefully, we could get two blocks out of each month's kit. I'm forever thankful that she was willing to share... because after all, what could be better... I'm not only sewing with my bestest friend, but I'm also making a truely beautiful quilt. I love my Tuesday timeouts!

Cutting, cutting, cutting...
Block 1...
Block 1 and 2...
...Since I ended up making them our of order just for the fun of it... here is a group of 4... I love the tulip!
...and my final block for today... a little thready to say the least!
In total, I have 5 blocks finished and am looking forward to starting on the next 7. But this special project will have to wait for another Tuesday timeout... a day for coffee, quilting, and catching up!
