Row by row Mystery

Our guild celebrated its 35th anniversary.  Part of the celebrations included a challenge and a mystery.  The mystery was a row quilt.  Each row was revealed at each monthly meeting until all 7 rows were presented.  The blocks used represented "Pearls of Wisdom";  appropriate for a 35th Anniversary don't you think?  I had been saving a particularly colourful fabric for just the right moment.  This seemed to be that moment.  Here's what I ended up with; Spicy Pearls

The pearls of wisdom were represented by these blocks:

  • Goose Tracks for "What's good for the goose is good for the gander"
  • Duck's Foot in the Mud for "Like water off a duck's back"
  • Hovering Hawks for "Watch like a hawk"
  • Lost Goslin for "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"
  • Crows Nest for "Something to crow about"
  • Birds in the Air for "Birds of a feather flock together"
  • Hens and Chicks for "Don't count your chickens before they hatch"
Off to do some hand quilting on another UFO.  Till the next time, be happy and creative.
