Midnight Mystery Quilt: August Report

In July we got started with the Midnight Mystery Quilt, hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist designs, by cutting all of our fabric. In August, the sewing began. Our task was to make 36 flying geese units. I love the no-waste sewing method that Cheryl chose. Here are my flying geese. Since I'm a little behind on posting about last month's sewing, this month's directions are already out. We'll be making square in a square units in September. I have a few other projects in the queue before I'll get a chance to work on those, but I hope to be showing them off soon.

      Yes indeed... when I get a moment. I think the square in a square blocks will be fun to make. And I'm excited to start using a third color. :-) Thanks for vising, Allison.

      I'm gonna try to post monthly. For a variety of reasons August got away from me... let's just pretend this post went out in August. ;-) Thanks for visiting, Lisa.

      Thank you, Yvonne. Yes! I'm excited about getting a third color in the mix. It's been fun to see everyone (mostly on FB) share their SiaS blocks. I especially like to see how you and others have laid them out in creative patterns. There are so many options, even with simply constructed blocks. Some sewing area clean up needs to happen so I can figure out what's next in the queue here. I've had three mini swaps to ship out in the last two weeks, so that's been the focus lately. :-)

  1. These flying geese blocks are my favorite of all I've seen for the Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long. Cohesive scrappy is a perfect description! Sarah, you have an amazing sense of color that I am extremely envious of. I absolutely can't wait to see what else you create! Mary

      Mary, you are so sweet!! I'm just sitting down tonight to work on a mini charm square project and tutorial for a blog hop next week. After that I'll need to get to work on bee blocks and Midnight Mystery for this month (I'm feeling so behind seeing everyone else get their square in a square units done!). Thanks for visiting!

      Thank you, Abigail. I really like the method, though it might be worth sizing up a smidge and trimming down to account for irregularities in marking and sewing. I'm having fun with this palette, which is not my norm. I look forward to getting to the September sewing, introducing another color to the mix. :-)

      It's hard to stay on top of all the quilting that I want to be doing. Don't even ask me how mu Patchwork City Block of the Month is going. ;-) Thanks for visiting, I hope to have more Midnight Mystery to show you soon.

      I under-utilize orange. It was the first color I chose for this project, by virtue of its abundance in my stash. Thanks for visiting. Good luck with your square in a squares. :-)

  2. Oh Sarah--great fabrics/colors...they are going to add such sparkle to the finished quilt. And you've motivated me to trim up my flying geese units and get started on the Square in a Square units--I too am a bit behind! Thanks!!

      Thank you, Mel! I'm excited to work my teal into the mix with the Square in a Square units. Maybe this weekend! :-) Oh, I just checked out your blog. Love the colors you chose for your Midnight Mystery.
