Stitching Shenanigans {Frolic Mystery Quilt}

After posting my last Frolic update, the first thing that I did was to fix the block that had the mistake. It took prepping that blog post to realize there was even a corner unit twisted around -- oops!

After a fairly productive few days of sewing, I am now up to a total of 17 blocks. I snapped a pic of the first 16 together before I finished number 17.



I have less than 10 navy blue blocks to go. I have sewn up all of the side flying geese pairs...


... except that I need to press the remaining pairs.

I still have quite a few corner units to sew as well. This will be my first task this weekend.


Once I use up all of these units, that means I have reached the end of the navy blue set of Frolic blocks. If I was going with the original quilt plan, I would be switching over to making the half and quarter blocks, however, I am going to make an additional set of full blocks and skip the half and quarter blocks. I have to switch gears and get back into unit making but I will be taking a break to work on my February Island Batik Ambassador project.

Happy Friday! What are you working on this weekend?

  1. You're doing great. I've only finished ten blocks but I have the rest of them kitted. This blocks takes some concentration (and lots of ironing) so I'm not in any hurry. Sometimes I just want to sew and not think and this certainly isn't the block for that frame of mind!

  2. I had that problem too! It's easy to do!
    Your blocks are so pretty... must be a pleasure to sew, even with the mistakes!

  3. You've made really good progress. Those blocks take some time to make even when you have all the component parts made!
