Snowballs....I think! And Thanks Vicki!

Hello Everyone,

I am making progress on my mystery quilt. I am desperately trying to catch on my clues. But to my detriment, I am very obsessive about the perfection of my quilting skills. Translates to "boy it can really slow you down." 

Anyhoo... Here is the progress I have made. I had to make 1/2 snowball units, not sure why, just had to do it. Here is what they look like...



Now I am in the process of making these strippy units. Again, I am not sure why, just doing what I am told to do with hopes of it being spectacular in the end. Anyhoo, here is what they look like....
So, I am plugging along with great hopes to finish this sometime in the near future. 

I also received a package from Vicki. I won a contest on her blog. She sent me a bunch of fun stuff. Thanks so much Vicki!!  Here take a peek at what was in the package.

Once again, I have been busy, check out the new customer quilts here. Hopefully, I will be back soon with another mystery update!!

Until then, happy quilting!

I love your mystery, and I don't even know what it is at all! Where did you find this one? Lovely fabrics and such excellent work.

Oh Jackie, what a shame...I did a wrong comment (again!) just a minutes ago. I sent yours to Jacquie (cos at the same time I open up many windows, haha...sorry!). Your mistery future quilt seems lovely at the end. You know, I'm trying to cut my fabrics today. I'll put on my blog later so you could give me any suggestion. I haven't had a sew machine so I'll try with hand sewing. Btw, what is 'sashing' Jackie? I had seen the picture about its detail, but still didin't get it..

Jackie, I've been away from your blog for far too long. I had no idea that you travelled so much this summer. Your Peruvian trip sounds fantastic and you sure brought back some lovely images.
Your mystery quilt is coming along beautifully. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.
Congrats on your blog win. It looks like you received some very lovely things. Take care.
Aloha!
