OC Step One

I have all my strips sewn together and cut into segments. I started sewing the segments together last night.



I also loaded and quilted this lovely pineapple quilt for Peggy. The batting is Fairfield and I'm not sure of the content because I don't have the package here, but I'm not a big fan of this batting. It didn't seem to grip the top as well as Hobbs 80/20 or Warm and Natural. Still turned out pretty. The pantograph is Popcorn and the thread is Permacore Honey.

I wish your picture of your Orange Crush strips sewn together was just a tad bigger. But, I can see the dark, light values look great! I just have my strips cut up for now as I'm leaving on a quilt retreat on the 13th for 4 days, and I plan to make sewing the 4 patches one of my retreat projects. I also think it's worth lagging behind a bit with this mystery to see what some of the other quilters patches look like. I also saw that Bonnie was on the Quiltsville Yahoo Group yesterday and made a comment about leftover 2" light strips would be used in another part of the mystery! So, I will just cut and sew the segments just until I have the 150 required 4 patches, hoping I still have a lot of 2" light strips left. I enjoy reading your Blog! And the Pineapple quilt is beautiful!

Hmm--fairfield. Was it 100% cotton? I used one package once, it just HAMMERED a I quilted it. And it bearded!! But after I washed it (it was mine thank goodness) it softened up and 90% of the bearding disappeared.
