I shoulda started with a bigger box...
Since I was perilously low on strips (Totally Demented has been using all my 2" and 2.5" strips, and I haven't been diligent about replacing the 1.5" strips that got sucked up by Checkerboard Rails), I squeezed in a little cutting when I needed a break from that flurry of machine-quilting I just went through.
Of course, I started with orange, then went through some blues and greens, but I hadn't replenished the reds yet.
So naturally, the first clue involves reds.
I grabbed some of my neutral strips (I try to always have plenty on hand!)
and quickly cut a few reds and voila!
Clue #1 has a small start!
Since I had finished On Ringo Lake only moments before, I no longer needed the Ringo bin. Here are my leftovers -
which resulted from
That left me a bin to put my Good Fortune blocks into. Yay!
Though they look a little lonely all by themselves in that great big bin. I'll be making a few (hundred) more over the course of this week. Already looking forward to the next clue!
Linking with Bonnie Hunter for the first Mystery Monday linky party. Come see what Good Fortune is bringing us!
