Yeah! The kick-off of my Sunset on the Sound Mystery is here! Thank you to everyone who plans on participating. I promise this will be great fun and manageable.
First off, THANK YOU, to all of those who joined me for my 2018 Timeless with a Twist journey. I appreciate all the notes you sent or posted last week! I love hearing from you and I especially love seeing your progress photos. Please keep them coming!
Okay, for our next journey, I want to get some Sunset on the Sound house-keeping out of the way:
The most important thing you can do is read my newsletter and especially the blog post each week. I will provide pictorials of each of the week's clue plus the download with details. The biggest thank you, you can give me, is to read the information I take the time to prepare, so that you are successful. While I love hearing from each of you, it is tough to handle 30+ emails each week that are asking information that was already provided, in great detail, here on the bl…
Clue #5? Woohoo! We are cruising right along with these clues. I'm so thankful for all the fabulous feedback on the pictorials I've been giving on this blog, the directions in the downloads, and the manageability of this Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series.
After today's clue information, I have some exciting new about the Twilight Chic Blog Hop that I'm participating in next week. Make sure to check out the announcement below! There is a prize!
Before I get started on today's clue, if you are just joining us for the Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series, you can get details on Fabric Requirements or details on the series in my early blog posts: start withJoin Me for my Mystery Blog Post. Then go to Clue #1Blog Post, Clue #2 Blog Post, Clue #3 Blog Post, and then Clue #4 Blog PostMake sure you download all the clues, as I discovered today I have limitation of 6 items for download.

Yeah it's Friday! This week I have a special treat, not only am I revealing Clue # 6 of my Sunset on the Sound Mystery Series, but I'm hosting the Studio 180 Design & Island Batik Twilight Chic Blog Hop.
Available today only, I'm offering the free pattern, of the project, I selected to make with the Twilight Chic Fabric, Deb Tucker’s signature collection for Island Batik, designed by Kathy Engle!
Let me tell you more about it. A few weeks back I was asked if I wanted to participate in the Studio 180 Design & Island Batik Twilight Chic Blog Hop, and of course I said yes! I love Island Batik fabric and the colors that Deb elected to be in her signature line.
I've been in my "Timeless with a Twist" book mode, and I was working on one of the extra projects for the first book, the Spring Has Come Table Runner and thought to myself, wow, using the fabrics from Deb's collection would make a great Fall Has Come version!
Block 40, Periwinkle, by Nancy Page, was published in Birmingham News on March 12, 1935.
This block is made up of Diamond Rectangles and Corner Beams. I absolutely love the movement! This block is most likely a revolution of the Shooting Star (Ladies Art Company, 1897). Replacing the basic squares of the Shooting Star, with Corner Beams, creates Periwinkle. When putting the Diamond Rectangles together, alternating one of the side triangles creates that center secondary design. A perfect name for this block, just like a Periwinkle flower, this block is classic (timeless) yet whimsical.
