I love a good mystery…

November 28, 2014

Several years ago another shop owner introduced me to Bonnie Hunter – a quilter extraordinaire who specializes in scrappy quilts and using up scraps.

Her annual mysteries have been going on for several years – last year was the first time I gave it a whirl.

It was fun and I worked hard to keep up with the “clues” each week.

I did get “most” of everything made week after week.

Then the big reveal….  so much excitement!

I had to put together the two blocks just to see how mine would look!

Printed copy in hand and ready to cut….

Bonnie says it is a quicker, easier one this year….

Maybe I can finish both

It’s time for our last block!  I cut this one out quickly with my Accuquilt cutter and the 6” Qube.  Many people think that with a 6” Qube, you are limited to 6” blocks, but I hope this quilt along has shown that there are many possibilities when you combine the shapes.  This 12” block has over 70 pieces!  The center section is a bit smaller than the other blocks so I did end up cutting the small triangles and rectangles with a ruler and rotary cutter.  Here is the block all cut and ready to be sewn.
