Having fun in the mystery quiltalong


There are a few of us know all making a quilt to Sheila's secret master plan - each week (or is it fortnight?) instructions for a new block appear on her blog, bluepatchquilter, and we all make along with her. I foolishly re-sized the first one but need to re-make it in the proper size or the quilt won't fit together. A classic case of me going off and doing my own thing thinking I'm Mrs clever la-di-da-smarty-pants and finding out, yet again, that I am now the dunce of the Mystery Quilt Flickr group. Anyway, it's a lot of fun - why not do what I'm doing and make the quilt with no pre-plan of colour scheme just Kona charcoal to pull it all together and whatever pretty fabrics come to hand as I go along. Could end up looking fabulous.  Could end up looking rubbish.

  9. This is a very cool block which caused me to pause and look at it from several angles, each time wondering, "How did she do that?" I love the illusions that the fabrics create.
