DD progress - 4 blocks


So far, so good! I'm thinking it could use some pale melon lights, to brighten it up a tad.

Suggestion - If you're just starting, pay attention to accurate measuring of those square in a squares. After that, it's all easy!

I counted the number of pieces -- oh my, good thing I didn't know at the onset or I would have been scared away from doing this beauty!

I like what I see. I just forget about the pieces, the end product is worth it.

yep measure twice cut once.
Way behind with my blog reading and an email is due to wing its way to you in the next few days.

What a gorgeous design. I'm not doing the mystery but tempted to try it now that I see what it looks like. Your color choices are very nice.

Amazing how those double nine-patches can transform another block! This is looking very good!
I didn't sign up for this one (too many UFOs already) but am tempted when I see how good it looks.

It looks perfect...does not need brightening. I'd like to try your making of laundry soap.
XOXOXO Subee

It really is a beauty. Had to laugh, I read "DD" as "Darling Daughter"! Hmmmm....did she walk 4 blocks?? ;)

You are getting so much done! That mystery quilt is lovely. Wish I had done it too but since I still have one flimsy and no plans for quilting it from Quiltville, I bypassed. Will be looking forward to seeing how this gets quilted.

I love the fabric you chose to make this mystery quilt with!! It is going to be spectacular.
