NYE Mystery from Fabricholics

This is the group of fabric I have chosen for the NYE quilt. The focus fabric is a really large floral that I totally love. The dark is a chocolate brown batik I guess I have been saving for my next life (ha!) and the medium I have been saving for the same reason. The background is Ecology Cloth. I heard great things about it on the internet so I bought a whole bolt. I have been working with it and love the feel of it.

Here is the beginning of the pre-sewing before the actual clues begin. I made 320 HST in the BG/medium and 160 HST in medium/dark. Yikes! That is 480 HST's!!!!! And they are all done!

I use the sandpaper (glued into a file folder) as an underlay to draw the lines on my squares. There is no shifting with this method. I use the ruler to lift the finished square off the sandpaper. It can ruin your nail tips if you use your fingernails.

Final sliver trimming to make the unit measure 2 1/2" unfinished size.
480 of these beauties!
