Scrap Dance Tango Update

I've been doing the Scrap Dance Tango mystery quilt hosted by Carole at From My Carolina Home.  The mystery started in January, and I believe the next-to-last step will be posted this Friday.

Almost from the beginning, I've been woefully behind.  Step 1 included cutting fabrics and making half-square triangles.  For my chosen size, I need 1,100.  I am still not completely done with Step 1.

But I did finally complete Step 4.  These are Unit A, and will make up half the quilt.
This will not be the final layout.  It's still a mystery!
This quilt will be a Christmas gift for my dad, assuming I complete it in time.  He's visiting right now, so the pieces are hidden away.  Which means I will get even farther behind, but I at least feel like I am making progress!

I will be linking up with Scraptastic Tuesday once the linky is open. I'm having trouble with the button today, but you can find it here


  1. 1,100 HSTs! WOW! It's going to be stunning, though!!

  2. That is a crazy amount of HST's but it will be beautiful in the end. Are we ever really suppose to keep up with quilt alongs?? I hope not because I rarely do.

  3. Secret sewing is challenging isn't it? I made a Dog Gone Cute for my daughter's last year and the studio door was firmly shut for 3 weeks with no admittance to children! I am sure your Dad will love that quilt.
