May For Me Mystery Quilt

Tonya at Hillbilly Handiworks is sharing a Mystery Quilt this month.  She told us what fabrics to purchase or gather from our stash and then last week gave us the design for the first block to embroider.  She has since shared the steps for piecing some blocks but I have not had the chance to get to that yet.

I bought fabric that I love, this project I plan to keep.

The first block has not been cut to size, I tried something new and used some color, using crayons before doing the stitching.

Come back later this week and I will show you my pieced blocks.
Or visit Tonya and see how her quilt is coming along.  It is not too late to join in.
Don't forget my Cottage Charm Giveaway, link on my sidebar.
