I mistakenly cut all my neutrals for the En Provence quilt into 2 inch strips during my enthusiasm to complete week 1. So I went and bought more neutral fabric (1 piece only) to complete week 2. Lucky for me, I didn't need to go buy more neutral until week 4 so I bought the same print I got for week 2 rather than try to go scrappy like I did for week 1. Now that we are using neutral again, I find myself wondering if I should shop for more scrappy neutral material, use what's left from what I
Since my last post I've finished week 3, bought more neutral fabric and my backing fabric, and sewed all 80 triangle in a squares for week 4. I'm so much happier at how this group turned out, make me want to go back and look at what I did on my earlier attempts during week 2.
And for a look at what other people have done this week for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt En-Provence check out this link:

I have no idea where these posts are coming from and why they're on my blog and why I even have a blog. It would be nice if it would just go away.

I got the Half Dowel Rod at the Lumber Store. I chose a 2 inch diameter rod and covered it with batting and heat resistant fabric that I use for hot pads. I made mine 60 inches long. I put my seams on it and iron on top of the curve to get a really flat seam like when you add a boarder
I just realized I hadn't posted my progress last week for the triangle in a square. And I'm halfway to being done for the purple 4 squares. Material is cut in strips and 2 long edges are sewn, just need to cut double strips to size and sew the next 80 squares together. The mannequin is getting a little busy.
I am wondering if anyone owns a Brother I 6000. My daughter is thinking of getting one and I told her I knew right where to look for advice!! Thanks in advance!!

Cut too many neutral strips. Maybe I'll be able to use the excess later. Since I didn't have enough neutral to cut even one 3 1/2 inch strip, I went to store and bought more neutral. And I picked up the Tri Rec tool too! I'm so happy I can start week 2 squares tomorrow before the week 3 clues come out. I'm adding a picture. Yes, the square

Spent all day yesterday at the hospital waiting for my baby sister to have surgery. What should have begun at 12 noon turned into an all day event since they didn't even take her back to the operating room until 4:30 PM and didn't start operating until 5:30. By 11:30 last night, after being in the hospital for 13 1/2 hours, we were finally allowed to go see her in recovery. She's doing better now, is home from the hospital already and her husband is taking care of her until he goes back to work
