Good Fortune Mystery Quilt - Clue #3

The Good Fortune Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville Clue 3 came out on Friday. I worked hard at lunch Friday and got all of my pieces cut out. I checked for what fabrics were needed on the blog before coming to work and brought them with me.  I sewed a bit on Friday night and on Saturday we had a sewing party at The Sewing Center. I was able to get the first half of the piecing completed. So after pressing during my break today and matching sets with the other half of the neutrals, I'm half done with Clue 3. I'll work on sewing the rest tonight.
 I love this little box I've been using to bring my clues back and forth to work with me. Since I use my lunch and breaks, it's helpful to have an easy way to transport them. So far it's working well.
 The box is about the size and design of a pencil box and all my units for this clue fit in it. I'm linking up with Bonnie for the Mystery Monday Link Up at Quiltville. Check out all the other Clue #3 work being done.
 I'm also working on the Stella Quilt Along with GE Designs and her Gudrun Crew on Facebook. I have half of these blocks completed and pressed. The pattern is in the new Mixology book.
 I'm also working on the Marina quilt out of the Mixology book. I was able to get about 1/4 of step 1 of the first half of the blocks done. This will be for my daughter. I love our sewing parties! I can get so much sewn and leave the pressing for my breaks.
 Yesterday was a quilting day at my dad's house. My quilt frame/machine is out there and I love that I can take the kids out and they play and I get to quilt. I finished quilting this Big Sky quilt for one of my nephews for Christmas.
 I also quilted this popcorn hexie table runner out of Sunny Lanes. I'll cut the sides off, so they are a bit unraveled where I didn't quilt them.
 I also quilted this quilt. It was a sample at the store, so I didn't make it, but it became mine and it's now quilted. I love batik fabrics. They are so bright and cheery.
 These were the cut units I started with for Clue 3 on Friday.
 I'm also busily making Christmas gifts for teachers. This is a giraffe one for my son's teacher. 
 An OSU one for another teacher friend.
 A camping one for my daughter's teacher. Only 8 more to go for the Religion teachers!
 I finally laid out my Sakura table runner. It's EPP and I'm hoping to finish it yet this year. My thumb it giving me fits from too much stitching. I have three sections with the stars attached and then will add the pink hexies around them to join them. It's becoming too big of a travel project.
 These are the boxy totes I'm making for the school teachers. I'm making them match their interests.
