Carolina Crossroads & Stashbusting

I am all caught up in the mystery quilt
There are 100 of these nine-patch blocks in Step 2, which equals 900 1-1/2 inch squares, bringing the total number of pieces to 1200.
There are 80 of these nine-patch blocks in Step 3, which equals 720 1-1/2 inch squares, bringing the total number of pieces to 1920.
There are 40 of these nine-patch triangle blocks in Step 4, which equals 120 1-1/2 inch squares and 120 triangles, bringing the total number of pieces to 2140.
There are 100 of these quarter-square traingle blocks in Step 5, which equals 400 triangles, bringing the total number of pieces to 2540.

Since I straightened up my sewing room this weekend, all the parts of the mystery quilt are neatly placed in this basket.


Stashbusting Report
According to my calculation so far this quilt has used more than 5 yards of fabric: 2-2/3 blue, 1-3/4 white, and 1-1/8 red

Longarm Quilting

Finished quilting the Ribbon Candy for a friend using the Jingle Bell Dance Panto and PermaCore Olive thread. Turned out real nice, but you have to really look to see the quilting design on the front and the back makes my eyes all wonky if I look at it too long.
