We interrupt the circle project to bring you a new Mystery Quilt…
This one is much more low key than the Bonnie Hunter quilt, thank goodness. The clues are issued through Facebook and the community is very active and supportive.
Our first clue was issued January 11, and I finished it up this weekend…
It is called Bricks, Cobblestones and Pebbles (the “bricks” will be 2.5 x 5″, the cobblestones are 3.5″square and the pebbles are 2.5″square).
My “soloist,” or accent fabric didn’t photograph very well, but it is a mottled dark navy blue/teal with gold accents. I’m really happy with how it looks. All of the rest of the fabrics are going to be very light background – white or off white, though I am (obviously) allowing color prints on that.
I love how it came together. If you are up close, you get to find images like flowers, chicks, owls and baseballs. From across the room, though, you can really see the pattern that the dark squares form.
I can’t wait to see how this one comes out!! It is nice to have an activity with very easy goals each week. Clue #2 was released and it is 9 simple nine-patch blocks with the soloist in the center. Easy Peasey!!
No worries, I’m still working on the Circles quilt. I’ve got to do some more free motion quilting to get the background finished before I continue. It is kind of time consuming to switch my machine from straight quilting to free motion quilting, so I figured that I will do clue 2 before I switch it back.
Everybody have a happy Monday!
