Clue #2 of the Mystery A12 Dakota Inspired Quilt was accomplished yesterday. The seaming was a new idea to me but it worked great without another 30 mins of trimming!
(the seams are on the outside edge of these right-sides-together strips; you cut down the center after cutting the strips to length)
All of my pretty little rails were done in no time!
Yes, I had an energetic helper the whole way!
Put in the zip-loc with clue #1 for safe keeping.
This bowl is 5 x 3" from Black Walnut! We had several giants in our yard in NY. Yes, the tree could be messy but we loved the large canopy from the two sentinels in the backyard and the nuts in the Spring were delicious! (the ones that survived the squirrels all winter!)
This is a hard wood but turned without any problems. It sanded and buffed up beautifully.
This is probably a better idea of the deep color of this bowl. And yes, the pink runner is still on the table! I'm letting it remind me to get to work on the green one!
So I did layout another lobe of the clover and will sew it up today! I have a designated sewing time so I won't get distracted with the lathe....
