A Bit of This and That

It was a busy weekend. My Mom celebrates her 80th birthday this week, so we had a party for her on Sunday.  It was especially nice since Grad Girl was able to come home for it. So mom had all her kids and grandkids there. Thankfully she was feeling better after a rough week and we all had a great time. 

Since the weekend was spent with family, there wasn't a lot of stitching time this weekend, but there was a bit of progress in the sewing room during the weekdays.  All the pieces needed for Unity are cut out and ready for assembly. 

The two large panel and pieces for the 10" strip for the middle of the backing are ready to stitch together.  

The only other progress this week was tweaking the fabric pull for the Melodic Mystery. 

The dark burgundy is the background, light pink is fabric A, medium pink is fabric B and the green floral is fabric C.  The light pink works so much better than the beige that was in the first fabric pull. I need to pre-wash the light pink, but that should happen today.  It would be nice if I could make a start on this mystery quilt today.  

So nothing exciting, but at least there was progress.  I'll take that. Linking up with Monday Design Wall and Quilting & Patchwork.

Very pretty colors for your new project.

Oh yes - those 2 pinks work so well with the burgundy. It will be fun to watch it come together during the mystery.

Happy Birthday to your Mom! 80 is a wonderful milestone, and so glad she was feeling better for the celebration. That is a pretty fabric pull for your mystery quilt, too!

How wonderful for your Mom that the family could be together to celebrate!
Great fabric pull!
I'm already thinking of fabrics for Bonnie's annual mystery. I'm also thinking of sewing the pieces at half size... crazy?

Very happy birthday wishes to your mom. It sounds like you had a very good weekend getting to celebrate her. I like the adjusted palette for the Macaroon Mystery quilt. I hope you have a great week!

Family time is precious, and I'm happy that your mom is getting better. You did a great job cutting all the pieces needed, and I love the fabric selection too. Lovely green and pink fabric.
Thank you for sharing, and linking up!

So glad your mom was feeling better for her birthday, and what a big one! The fabrics for the mystery quilt look great, I debated whether or not to make this one and decided not to start it yet…but I may jump in over the holidays!
