Although I have so many quilts in progress, I couldn’t resist starting the mystery quilt with Bonnie Hunter. She provides so much teaching and fun in these mystery quilt alongs, I was eager to dive in. I shared my fabric pull in this earlier post. On the weekend when I was home in-between weeks 2 and 3 of my offsite course, I cut out the fabrics for clues 1 and 2, at one-quarter of the instructions — aiming for a baby quilt size.
Then this past weekend, I was able to dive into the week 3 clue. I have the tri-recs rulers for clue #2, my first two units were a bit big because I was cheating the 1/4″ size, and I am pressing the seams open in these.
I still have yellow and aqua colours to use from my fabric pull, Bonnie has been sharing the “easy” units first to allow time for shipping of her new ruler for cutting triangles — I didn’t order one, I’ve had success using the Fons and Porter flying geese ruler for HST and QST, so which ever is in this quilt, I’m sure I will be fine.
