Playing catch-up with the Mystery Quilt

My "sanity sewing" this morning was an opportunity to catch up with the bluepatch quilter's Mystery Quilt.  For fortnight 5, bluepatch had us make a very, very large block: "Garden Path." 

For fortnight 6, we were directed to make a very traditional block, "Clay's Choice."  To lighten things up and get a little relief from all those polka dots, I didn't include my background fabric in this one.

It's so nice to be caught up, and I think these crazy blocks are working pretty well together...they certainly brighten up our old cement laneway!

Hopefully this little bit of sewing has rendered me sufficiently sane to get to work.  So off I go...and I hope those who are sharing the intensely hot weather that has hit Toronto can stay cool!

Aren't you lucky to have hot weather -wish we had some! Your mystery blocks are fab, and really interesting fabrics too! jxo

Thanks so much, Catherine and Judith!

And much as I loooove summer, it is a bit *too* hot here today: 37 c, but feels like 41 c. There's a heat advisory, the public pools are staying open until midnight, and it's hard to do much of anything outside (it's almost like being snowed in!).

Those blocks look awesome! I haven't done a mystery quilt in ages. I think I need to track one down.

Hi Allegory! I'll send you the details on this Mystery Quilt-Along, which is hosted by bluepatch quilter. It's a really nice group :)
