DWM and Mystery Monday: step 2, avoiding temptation, and a finish

The stages of Step 2
 I have about 60 of the step 2 units made as I write this post. I may get a few more done this evening.
I'm using Bonnie's third method to make the diamonds. That results in bonus triangles. I've got them all trimmed to 1.5". (Orca Bay generated bonus triangles, too, and the wallhanging here was the result.)


I was out on errands on Saturday and spied a sign for an estate sale. I was tempted by several mint-in-package cotton bedsheets and a table loaded with embroidered linens and dishtowels.   I could not resist this. It had no price tag and the estate sale lady said I could have it! 

I finished quilting Waffle Stamps.  3-7/8 yards for the backing and binding. (More here. )

The drawing for Christmas Stars was at the conclusion of the United Methodist Women's chili supper on Saturday.  The winner was delighted. Ticket sales brought $400 of which $300 goes to UMW and $100 to me (to defray the cost of professional quilting).  (More here .)

I'm linking up with other quiltmakers at Judy's Patchwork Times  and Bonnie's Mystery Monday .

  2. You've made great progress on Clue 2! I have my strips cut, that's all. Taking to retreat on Tuesday. I'm going to try method 2 (the rulers?), but I'm only going to do a few to see how they work out. Also only doing half until I see the final reveal.

  8. I didn't want to accumulate bonus squares, so didn't use this method. But if you can use them like you did in your cake stand hanging, that's great!
