En Provence - In progress (slowly)

The first clue is starting us off easy. 


Neutral four patches.  We can all do those in our sleep, right?  (And probably have, at some point...)

I've only got a small stack done so far, out of the gazillion that I'll need if I decide to do a full-sized version of the quilt.  (Still haven't made up my mind if I'm in for half or whole.  Plenty of time to decide!)  Mostly I've done them as leader/enders as I work on assembling my piglet blocks, and I'll continue with that process.  (I have a lot of pig-assemblage underway!)

And I'm looking forward to the next clue - hopefully some purple!

Linking with Bonnie's Monday Party - come see what other folks are up to with En Provence.

Difficult to guess what will come next with just a neutral four-patch. Looking forward to part 2 already (once I have those pesky four-patches pressed!)

We all know you're going whole... you don't do anything by half....

I like your fabrics.

I agree with Wandering Cat Studio. You are not a "half" person, lol. You will go for the whole nine yards. Go, Gayle! Go, Gayle GOOOOOOOOOOOO!! ;^)

Looking good.

Hmm, Keryn and I said we're just going to make a 'few' each, and combine them into one top, but we'll see how that goes. I figure that if we don't like where the pattern heads we can always use four patches somewhere else. I seem to make big quilts all the time, but I'm going to try and not jump in both feet this time, I've got so many other projects going on.

Yes, that's what I said -- easy! And then I went a step further and decided not to sew at all. :D You're off to a great start. Bring on the colour!

Good looking neutrals the pile is so pretty together!

That's a nice collection of neutrals!

I think we are all looking forward to the next clue now. We've got all those pretty fabrics just begging to be sliced up!

Kimberly Smith said...

Yeah, she's roped me in with the easy four patches as a first step. She knows exactly what she's doing! I was going to do half. Then I see the easy step & my overflowing neutrals drawer and now I'm all in! Still loving the pigs every step as you go -- keep 'em coming, please.

Kate said...

Looks like you made a very good start on those 4 patches. I decided to start with half and go from there.

Is each week going to be like this, getting the clue on Friday and being finished on Monday and also blogging? Some people are all done with this first clue. They must have empty weekend time or are whiz stitchers. I'm waiting for my friend, whose oven imploded, to have a chance to cut my strips. You are doing okay, considering the piglets. Keep up the good work!

Great start... it will be interesting following your journey with this mystery quilt!

Pity you can't teach the piggies to help with the four patch sewing!

Love your neutrals :)
