Just Takes Two

Playoff games were Sunday and I got a chance to sew the second installment of Just Takes 2 mystery.

I had a little trouble with the house block, and even though it isn't perfect, it will do. Set in seams have never been my favorite technique.



Here are all the blocks so far.

BTW, I forgot to add the giveaway will close on Saturday night. That will give me Sunday to get packages ready to mail.

Have a wonderful thursday!

  1. Oooh! I love your blocks!!
    I'm working on mine today.
    Still stuck on what I should use for my background for the Pink Lemonade quilt. *sigh*

    Happy stitching!

  2. Enjoyed seeing your Just Takes 2 blocks. They look good. I'm working on those also, but struggling a little with the heart block from the 1rst section. Applique is not my best skill.

  6. I love the reds, but I'm not going to start another project. I'll have to be content looking at all the others in blog land.
    Take care

  7. These blocks look really fun. I'm not on great terms with "Y" seams, either.

  9. Lovin' the scrappy blocks. That fabric in the top right block is amazingly beautiful. I've left the house to the last block too!

  12. Your blocks look awesome. Those pesky house blocks always look so easy, but they never are. I try to avoid those 'y' seams whenever possible. I actually don't mind hand piecing them, but I am not that skilled at hand piecing. LOL.
    Keep stitchin

  13. 'Y' seams can be hard. The Fons and Porter show last Saturday showed a nice tip. They start stitching 1/4th to 1/2" away from the corner to the dot then turn the piece around to stitch the seam to the next dot in the corner. No popped stitches that way. SEWING dot to dot. They draw the seam line on the back of each piece too. I'm going to try it on that School House Block. Thanks for warning us. Yours look good. I have a couple left to do from the first set also.

  18. Oh, YAY! You are using scrappy reds! I was so tempted to do that, but went with solids for mine, just because I never work with solids. I will enjoy watching yours come together!

  19. Lovely blocks! I haven't started yet, but I did buy background fabric. I can't decide if I want to use scrappy reds (love yours) or use a 6 yard piece of navy that I have.
