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 –
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 –
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.
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~!~
