Work In Progress Wednesday - Midnight Mystery Quilt Blocks

I followed the next set of instructions and have the individual blocks pieced.  All of my blocks are different. (I should have pressed the seams before taking photos.)  The more I look at these blocks, the more I like them.





Just one more set of instructions!  Maybe by next week, I'll have the completed quilt top.  We'll see.  The directions for this quilt can be found on Cheryl's Meadow Mist Designs blog.  


I did finally go back to the Janome Shop and was able to buy a walking foot for my machine.  I still don't have the hang of it yet and need to "unstitch" some puckered areas. I don't consider this to be any progress on this quilt. 



These are two of my 17 in 2017 projects.

Great work on your 'mystery' blocks.
I agree that 'getting on YouTube' and finding a helpful video can save a lot of time.
Hopefully you'll get things working right soon.

I'd say, just let the walking foot do the walking. You only need to guide the fabric.
The blocks are great!

The colours of your quilt are just so beautiful and I agree with Shez that the yellow works so well. I also agree with Queeniepatch that the walking foot should just walk - perhaps you have a thread/needle combo problem. xx

These blocks look so great, Pamela. I love the blues that you used for them together with the yellow, makes a wonderful colour combo.

I like your blocks as well. From a distance, it looks like some really floral patterns and then you get closer and - cats! Love it.
