Okay Quilters, here we go!!! This is a really easy project. My mission is to offer something not too scary, especially for those first time mystery players. There are only 7 fabrics needed for this project and when you are done it is a simple 40 x 40 (about, you know how I am....) not too too much investment if you don't LOVE it!! Feel free to go to my gallery and you can see the mysteries I have done in the past.
This one is so nice and easy. Only squares, strips and one triangle shape to deal with. And remember, there is NO WASTE, simply pieces to add to your Bits and Pieces collection!!!
This pattern is not really best for a SCRAPPY quilt. There needs to be a certain consistency for the pattern to really sing.
Here are my SEVEN fabrics.....
Type your paragraph here.
1. White on white 1/4 yard **
2. Cream 7/8 yard**
3. Print 1 3/8 yard
4. Rusty Red 3/4 yard
5. Print 2 1 1/8 yard
6. Tealy Blue 1/4 yard
7. Black 1/4 yard

I'm going to give you some tips and ideas I use when making this block.
Fabric 2 - Cream, Cut 3 strips at 4", then subcut to 24 - 4" squares. THESE you then cut once on the diagonal, making 48 half square triangle parts. They will be happy together, a bunch of triangles, just hanging out.
I STRONGLY recommend that you stick with the white on white and cream colors for fabrics 1 and 2. Two complimentary smallish prints and tone on tones that work with those prints. Don't make it too hard! I started with the Print 2 and built from there. The two prints are nothing like each other in style, but work together with the colors. It will be fine.
This list does not include fabric requirements for the back or the binding, as I believe you can make those choices on your own at the time. Okay??? So start perusing your INVENTORY! Cutting instructions will start tomorrow!!! Then a clue each Wednesday (skipping July 8th and 15th as I'm going to Sisters OR for the big quilt show then a quick run back up to Washington) until we are done! I think it will be an 8 week project finished. GO!!
It's Friday August 21st and
