On Ringo Lake Progress

Sorry I haven't been able to post for a while. The holidays and taking inventory of my store have taken up a lot of my time lately. I am still making progress with my On Ringo Lake quilt though, just slowly.

All of clues one, two, and three are done.


Clue four is done too even though they aren't all shown in the photo below.


I'm working on clue five now.

Still At "The Lake"

I'm still making progress on my On Ringo Lake project.


The photo above is of my progress on Clue 3. I have some of Clue 4 made too. I had planned to use my Deb Tucker Corner Pop ruler for clue 3, but I wasn't thinking and cut out my neutral squares for a different method! Oh well, it will work. I did use the Essential Triangle Tool ruler for clue 4. I must say that I am impressed. It was easy to use and my units are coming out great!

On Ringo Lake Clue 2

I'm surprised that I've been able to keep up somewhat.


This photo was take a few days ago but I'm just now able to write something to go with it. I now have all of my flying geese sewn, but only three are trimmed to size. I've got a lot of trimming to do! I hope to be able to get at least some of clue 3 cut out today. I plan to use the Corner Pop ruler method for it.

The reason I have been unable to post much here lately is that my shop is in the midst of Stuff My Stocking (also known as 12 Days of Christmas in other areas). It's one of those promotions where the shop offers a deal on one item a day for 12 days. It takes a lot of time (before, during and after) to do it well. If you are interested we do ship. You have to be signed up for our newsletter to participate. Go to our website, click here - Alamosa Quilt Company, and click on the "subscribe to our newsletter" button located on the header image below our logo. Today is the ninth day of the event but on the 12th I will be allowing folks to go back and take advantage of previous days. So if you sign up now you can still get in on all of the deals, provided we still have items left, which at this point we have at least a few of every item.

On Ringo Lake Mystery Quilt

I really don't have time for this but I'm doing it anyway! Our guest bed needs a new quilt.


I have no illusions that I will be able to keep up. My goal is to make 12 of each clue each week. Then I will make the rest as time allows.

The details of this mystery quilt can be found by clicking here. The next clue will be revealed tomorrow sometime.

Panel Quilt Series :: First One

I'm working on a series of simple patterns for panels. This is the first one.


The quilt top is made. Now I'm working on writing the pattern so we can kit this up.
