Last Monday, Libby at Life on the Hill revealed the final step in putting together her Magical Mystery blocks, so later in the week I got busy sewing a few together!
There is an "A" block and a "B" block. Here are the A's ready to stitch. You can make 4 blocks from each pair of fat quarters, two A blocks and two B blocks.
Libby also gave us some possible block layouts to try. I loved her two color idea, see it HERE, and gave it a try with my first few blocks. I even made an extra purple and yellow block so I would have enough to see the design get started.
But since I have lots of color in my blocks (and will have more when I get the rest of the blocks made!), maybe something where each set of four 8 inch blocks makes a bigger block by themselves will work better.
The dark/light design will still be apparent, I think. I guess I'd better get to work on cutting and sewing some more blocks!
This is going to be a bright and happy quilt! Sharing at Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap today.
Just yesterday, I basted this tulip block that I made earlier in the week and got it ready for some hand quilting. I thought I would enjoy some slow stitching this afternoon!
This will turn into a springtime mini after quilting. It measures about 9 x 20. Also sharing at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
such a pretty tulip block - spring comes for sure
Mysteries are scary for me, I never know if I will like the result. Kudos on your blocks, so fun!
Great layout ideas on the mystery blocks, and I love how your tulip is coming along. Hope you are enjoying some of your slow stitching on this Easter day. :)
I am with Chris - I am always hesitant to join in on mystery quilts. But I have been watching Libby’s Block closely. It will be fun to see how you lay out all your blocks!
I still need to sew my Mystery blocks. The components are done, but not the assembly. Penguins do great work on Mysteries!! :o))
Pretty tulip block, I'll be looking forward to see your hand quilting done. I want to try this someday. I'm curious about how the mistery will end.
So do you have more blocks done now-I mean it is a whole day later, LOL How long is the mystery going for?
Always lovely to see the reveal of the blocks in a mystery. Looks good.
I like you layout for the mystery blocks. Very fun. Hope you got in lots of slow stitching this week.
