The new design is done, the first quilt is made, and I am working on the second to be sure the pattern is correct. Scrap Dance Mystery Two-Step will premier next Friday, with clues on the third Friday of every month. I like this design a lot, and I might even make a third one. The pattern takes advantage of some precuts, so you can use some of those to reduce the amount of cutting if you have them.
I hear the George Straight song ‘Ocean Front Property’ in my head every time I think of Two-Stepping! Here is a video of him singing live if you haven’t heard it, or if you want to hear it again. It’s a great song! For my international friends who may not be familiar with US geography, Arizona is land locked without an ocean shoreline, and the Golden Gate is a bridge in San Francisco. The song is about a guy telling a big fib about not being in love. It is a toe tapper, so enjoy it!
Scrap Dance Two-Step will last about 7 months, with plenty of time between posts to get your steps done. I am very excited about this one, as I designed it to take advantage of pre-cuts to save you some cutting time if you have some in your scrap bin. Of course, you can still use scraps and leftover bits as always if you don’t, you’ll just need to cut the sizes required. So, dig out those charm squares, jelly roll leftovers and fat quarters, and get ready to cut fabric next week.
I have updated the open Flickr group for this mystery. Click on Scrap Dance Mystery Group 2017 for the group, join us to share your progress from fabric selection to finished quilt, and every stage between! This is the same group we used for Tango, and the original Scrap Dance, just updated for the new mystery.
Here’s a little logo button for you, it should link back to this post, and I’ll add a link here to the first post next week.
