Hint?

My mystery project enters day 2.  I had forgotten how great a 9-patch can look! ( And how much variation there can be in white-on-white)

If you haven't checked in for a while, or you are here because of WIPs on Wed at Esther or Lee's blogs...on Monday, I started cutting fabric for a new project and issued a challenge.  Each guess posted on the previous or this post that identifies what the final project will be, counts toward a very cool prize.  In case you are too lazy/overwhelmed/busy to check the previous post, the basic rules are:  a gift certificate to my local quilt shop (who ships internationally) will be awarded  to a contestant who guesses what it is that I am going to make.  One entry per guess, with extra credit (guesses) for being right, or ridiculously wrong in a way that makes me snort coffee out my nose when I read your entry.   Contest ends whenever I get this thing done (could be tomorrow...could be next month).


And I don't want to make light of serious addiction...but when I ran out of spray starch while pressing these blocks...I was in a serious panic.  Until I remembered that I had a secret stash of dollar store spray starch.  Oh yea, that's pathetic (but a huge relief).  


My other project that I'm working on is my revised Heart's Desire...which I tend to refer to as Heart's Whim or that @#$% Heart quilt that I broke up with.  Follow the link for details...but this is my medium-tech version of showing what I think it may look like (when I get another 30 hours of applique done).   Planning to add more leave and vines around the outside.  Will keep you posted.

OK I have to have a guess... it was the snorting coffee bit that roped me in.
Techno challenged however, so here's a straight guess...
Suduko puzzle?
Morse code?
A terradactyle telling us to eat our greens????
Sorry thats three guesses and I am probably disqualified. Boo Hoo.

Okay, 2nd day, 2nd guess... It's going to be a pad for one of those Wii games - the dancing one where you hop around copying your cartoon character on the TV screen!

You're so funny!
I like it that you have a secret stash of starch. The applique will look fantastic when its done.

I bought a can of spray starch on someone's recommendation but never use it! It sprays everywhere and leaves a slick on the carpet which gathers even more dirt!

Duh I even commented here. My mind is going or I just forgot LOL it is just amazing and I do love your work, and your hand quilting is a work of art.
