I love, love, love the OMG goal-setting link up hosted by Heidi of Red Letter Quilts. This month, I made piecing my goal. Primary goal was to finish cutting and do all the September piecing for the Meadow Mystery hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. I was successful!
I am using batiks for this mystery, and 2 of the "fabrics" are scrappy. I am a little concerned about the lack of contrast, but I will wait to decide if I need to make a change until I get further into the mystery. Each of these four blocks has a different purple fabric. The bright green mottled is the same. The thing about batiks, though, is even when a big piece is obviously a certain color, you lose that definition when you cut it into smaller pieces. But like I said, I'll wait and sew.
There were also some HSTs with the green and the background fabric. They will presumably be used later in the mystery. I don't have a picture of those, but they are pieced and trimmed and ready for the next step.
I also hoped to get some piecing done on my niece's quilt and to make some more butterflies for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, as I am desperately behind on that. I got 2 more double rows made for my niece's I Spy quilt, bringing me to 5 completed of the 8 needed. And I finished 1 butterfly.
All in all, lots of piecing this month, and I made my goal of staying caught up with the Meadow Mystery. Linking up with Heidi.
