What's in a Name, Norma Rose?
Beautiful fabrics deserve to show up in a beautiful quilt. I participated in my local guild's mystery quilt challenge during the lockdown last year. I know it may be hard to believe, but this was the very first mystery quilt I have ever participated in. A quilter for 35 years and this was a first!
We first had to pick our fabrics. I had just received a fat quarter bundle of Norma Rose by Windham. Let me show you how gorgeous they are.

I really don't like not knowing where I'm going. Our first steps were to cut a zillion squares.
|Just a bunch of squares. A LOT of squares.|
Then we had to cut some strips. Probably not in that order, but hey - I was lost and just trusted the coordinator Sue and the designer Doreen.
|Just a bunch of strips. Was this going to be a Log Cabin?|
Then we had to sew a lot of the squares together. We made some half-square triangles along the way. I was getting lost-er and lost-er. I can't even remember what was happening here, but I was glad that my little chicken pin cushion was keeping track of the steps. Yeah, right!

|Oh, My Stars!|
"Seams" crazy, right? This is what I was talking about - Part 6. Holy Cow!
|So many seams and trims and pressing.|
And getting closer. Closer. Closer . . .
|Last step before the REVEAL!|
