On Ringo Lake {Clues #5 and #6}

While the big reveal has taken place, I'm still trudging along with the clues for On Ringo Lake!

With our holiday travels, we were already in Ohio when Clue #5 was released on the 22nd and I didn't take any of my fabrics or tools with me. I did however dig through my mom's scrap bins once we were in Michigan and find some fabrics to add to my On Ringo Lake fabrics.

I did all of the orange and black cutting for Clue #5 on Christmas Day, and did the cutting for Clue #6 on December 29th, but wasn't able to start any of the sewing until this weekend.

I did Clue #6 first, adding the triangles to Clue #4. I still need to trim the dog ears but I am loving how bright these units turned out!

It seemed like Clue #5 went faster than the previous batch of geese that I had made in Clue #2. I trimmed all of these units while we watched football and the Golden Globes last night. Either way, I am now complete through Clue #6!

My goal for this week is to get the goose pairs sewn together for Clue #7 in the evenings so that I can put together my blocks for Clue #8 this coming weekend! I will need to go back and make a few extra units for the sashing and setting, but I believe that I have enough of the necessary units to make the blocks themselves. My version will be 25 blocks on point and end up somewhere around 60 inches square, I estimate.

  4. I'm trudging right along with you! It's a lot of sewing in a busy time of year. My annual retreat is next week and I hope to knock a lot of the quilt out. I'm loving how your colors are looking together. I won't be long before you have your blocks together!

  5. There were so many clues released so quickly that it was pretty much impossible to keep up. :) Your colour selections look great and you will have a beautiful quilt!
