Midnight Mystery quilt – Square in a Square block

Bylam troche zestresowana, ze dolaczylam sie do wspolnego szycia Zagadkowego Quiltu tak pozno, ze nie dam rady nadrobic zaleglych blokow. Dlatego wlasnie zdecydowalam, ze w tym tygodniu nastepny blok jest na gorze listy priorytetow i musze je uszyc zanim pazdziernik sie skonczy. To wplynie z pewnoscia na moje pozostale cele i terminy, ale naprawde sie ciesze, ze tak postanowilam.

I was kind of stressed that I joined the Midnight Mystery Quilt Along so late and will never managed to catch up. Therefore I decided to prioritize the next block and make it before end of October. That will have some consequences in not meeting other goals and deadlines, but I’m so glad that I did it anyway.

Bardzo bylo mi milo z powodu wszystkich reakcji i opinii, ktore otrzymalam po moim ostatnim poscie oraz na Instagramie. Wspolne szycie jest jeszcze lepsze, niz oczekiwalam.

I enjoy also the feedback I received to my last Midnight Mystery Quilt post as well as feedback on Instagram. Common sewing is even more fun that I was expecting.

Teraz patrze na 34 ukonczone kwadraty w kwadracie w tych przepieknych mietowej, szarej i niebiesko-zielonej tkaninach, ktore strasznie mi sie podobaja. Pewnego dnia bedzie mi bardzo ciezko pozegnac sie z tym quiltem i przekazac go nowemu wlascicielowi.

Right now I’m looking at 34 square in a square blocks in those beautiful mint, grey and teal fabrics that I adore so much. One day it will be very difficult to say goodbye to this quilt and to pass it over to the new owner.

Caly czas mysle, ze jest to swietny pomysl podzielic caly quilt na male czesci i pracowac nad jedna z nich kazdego miesiaca. Wzglednie nieduza ilosc pracy sprawia, ze jes to wykonalne, probuje zrobic to samo z pozostalymi projektami, ale nie jestem zbyt dobra w wyznaczaniu sobie realistycznych celow.

I still think that it’s a great idea to divide the whole quilt into small bites and take one each month. The relatively small amount of work make it definitely more manageable, I’m trying to do similar thing with other projects, however I’m pretty bad in setting up realistic goals.

Instrukcje przygotowane przez Cheryl z Meadow Mist Designs sa bardzo jasne i pomocne. Tak jak i gesi w locie, to byl moj pierwszy raz z kwadratem w kwadracie. Musze sie przyznac, ze nie mialam zadnych watpliwosci co do szycia, jednakze przycinanie blokow po zszywaniu bylo konieczne. To jest zrobione i nie moge sie doczekac szycia nastepnego bloku – Courthouse Steps. Proste linie i spojne szwy… Mysle, ze wiele sie moge nauczyc. I czekam z niecierpliwoscia na listopadowy blok, ktory bedzie opublikowany 5 listopada.

Block instructions prepared by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs are very clear and helpful. Just like flying geese, it’s my first time making square in a square blocks. But I must admit that I haven’t been even once in a doubt, however needed to trim my blocks a little bit. That’s done and now I’m looking forward to piece the next block – Courthouse Steps. Straight lines and consistent seam allowances… I think I can learn a lot. And waiting to get to know the November block is pretty exciting – that will be announced soon – on the November, 5th.
