A new MYSTERY quilt – The TWIST!

January is always more fun when Carole Carter releases the “cutting” requirements for her next MYSTERY quilt.  This year; the project will run from January through August, with “clues” coming on the 3rd Friday of the month.  I love the name of this mystery…..she calls it The TWIST – Do go take a look and maybe dance along! The cutting instructions are in a PDF on Carole’s blog, From My Carolina Home – Scrap Dance Mystery 2020-The Twist

I went for the scraps of course! I had fun playing with the scrap bin and this is what I chose for my 4 1/2″ blocks –

4.5" squares pulled

I have “extras” so I may discard the ones with the white background when it comes time to do something else with the pattern.

And for the 5″ squares, I have a similar variety –

5 inch squares

It is not all floral, I threw in some tone on tone and a few geometric pieces too.

The background fabric uses a lot of material.  I started with scraps, but quickly moved into yardage to cut the number of pieces required.

Background squares 4.5 and  5

I chose white on white/cream for the  5″ and threw in a huge variety of pieces for the 4 1/2″.  Small and not so small prints on a white/cream background.   It will be interesting to see what we do with all of these pieces.

Anyone who knows me knows I cut for a king size….. I enjoy cutting; and piecing quilt tops~!~

Are you doing the “TWIST” ?  It’s not to late to start – hop over to Carole’s blog, From My Carolina Home and tell her I sent you~!!~

    • Thanks for the input on the dotted fabrics. I did think about this for several days and finally decided to remove them. I had a hard time doing that as I had cut “yardage” for those 4 1/2 squares…but, I put them back in my bin for another day and cut more tone on tone. So hard to decide when it is a mystery, but your advice is well respected. I also took out the scrappy pieces that have a white background. I’ve added a few new scrappy pieces to get a little more variety. The sizes are usable in other things, and I do like to mix it up a bit. THANK YOU for putting this mystery quilt project together again. I always enjoy it and encouraging others to give it a try. 🙂
