My Guy and I got in a walk and some photography yesterday morning. It was cold enough for gloves, but the spectacular effect of the early morning sun on leaves was worth the cool start.
It's also been a productive weekend in the sewing room. It's amazing how much progress can be made with just one extra day off. Last month's brown Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks were finished. I showed those off on Saturday's post. The next clue in the Midnight Mystery quilt was out on Thursday and that was next on my to do list.

This is how it looks midway through step 2. Hopefully I'll finish up step 2 today.
Since Back to Square One is out for quilting and The Layer Cake Quilt Along project is just about bound, it was time to select another UFO from the 2015 Quilt Plan. The McCall's Mystery quilt just seemed to be begging to be next, so I pulled that project box off the stack. I had finished clues 1 and 2 back in January of 2012.

So I got started on the final step, clue 3.
There are 16 of these snowball blocks total in the quilt. The sunny yellow floral has been in the stash for years and I've got 6 yards of it. What's left over after making the top will be used for the backing. After the snowball blocks are all finished it will be time to assemble the quilt, so it's possible that I'll have another finished flimsy before the end of the year.
It was definitely a good week. You can check out more weekly progress updates at:
