Quiltville's En Provence Clue 2 Progress

I didn't make a lot of progress this week on clue 1.  I got some more strips cut and that was it.  When the clue two went live on Friday I didn't even have my fabric.  I am ice dying each of the other colors, my first time doing it.  It took a lot longer than I anticipated so I didn't even start cutting and sewing clue two until late Sunday afternoon.  I did get some done though so at least I have a little bit to show off today.

I've been quilting a Christmas gift so I feel like I have a good reason for not making any progress since the last post on clue one.  I have just a little more to go on it and then I can take some time to sit at my piecing machine.  I was really shocked at how quickly the clue two units are going together.  I was able to knock out twenty of them while my bowl of chili cooled down enough for me to eat.  I'm hoping that I will be able to get back to units after work Monday.  My goal is to finish my gift tonight after getting blog work done and having tomorrow evening available to do a lot of piecing.



I know my fabric isn't as magenta as other's but I'm going with it.  I did two sections of this fabric trying to get the coloration I had in my head.  Neither came out how I thought they would but I do like both.  The other piece of fabric is a little more purple than pink so I will more than likely set it aside for the purple that will be needed in the future.  I do love the contrast of the very modern looking fabric versus the very traditional vintage neutrals I picked.

I will be sharing how I am dying my fabrics in a future blog post.  It probably won't happen until after the holidays, though.  My calendar is pretty full right now.  I'm sure your calendar is full too.

I'm linking up to Bonnie's link party.  If you are visiting from there thank you for stopping by!  I love to have new folks into The Quilting Room.  Grab a cup of coffee and sit a spell!
